Hi Pam.

Well,....just got back today from a week in Florida, and back off again tomorrow to Detroit for a couple of days,....so just popping in to see whats going on !!.

Always liked this Cat Stevens song, and I thought you played it very nicely.

My personal preference would have been to stay with that great intro piano voice, and build the variation by using the multi-pads etc, rather than changing the voices every few bars.

It was still an enjoyable performance the way you did it, and no critique on the timing or phrasing,......both spot on

Kind Regards
Gordon

Hi Pam
Very nice indeed, never very keen on the original - your version is better although the balance of the voices could be better as the melody was a bit quiet at times (on the Mp3) if I'd been able to play the midi then I'd have altered it myself, which I will do when I get the chance. In the meantime suffice to say I enjoyed it and you played it very well.
Cheers
Spike

Hello Pam
Big fan of Cat and you played this one pretty well. Yes a slight drowning of the melody at times but a great listen all the same. Good version
All the best
Ewan

Nice one Pam

An old favourite of mine and you've made it work this time.
Pretty good performance, piano, guitar and vocal lead all work well, the next voice ??? sounds a bit strange but saved by the flute in the final verse.
Perhaps a bit of time spent in the mixing section would also pay dividends in the final production.

Thumbs up this time.


Regards

Will

Grateful thanks to Spike, Ewan, Will and Andy for giving it a listen and the kind comments, as for the mixing, I submitted this also to YPKO and had the same reaction, so half expected the comments on the mix, another slap on the wrist,must do better next time...Pam

Hi Pam,
Wonderful job you've done here. I can only agree with everyone else about the mixing being a little less than perfect.
I especially likes the human voices. They added a very nice warm feel to the song. While I'm speaking of them though, I don't know if it happens to anyone else listening to the mp3, but on the last bar of that voice section the whole volume of the song just jumps up very unnaturally. Maybe I'm speaking too soon. I'm going to check the midi to see if it does it there also.
All little nitpicking aside though, as I said wonderful job, and I really enjoyed it.

Hmmmmmmmmmmm,

It does it on the midi too, and it also has a volume change in the begining and toward the end. Don't know what's going on but I downloaded it and intend to find out as soon as I get some free time!

Still a good job Pam!
