A GIANT groovy iComp collab-cover of Dave Mason's "Feelin' Alright", originally released with Traffic in '68. In all, I received 31 tracks to mix in response to Bass2x's forum invitation. Very happy with the way it turned out, being able to include elements from all contributors!

Like any good Traffic jam smiley I let this one run on 7 minutes because Fatchance turned in such a nice slide/lead section...there was no way I was going to cut any of it. Thank you to all who sent tracks, it was a joy to mix this.

Bass2x..........Bass,Piano,Drums
Baboon..........Vocals
FatChance.......Slide and Lead Guitar, Vocals
Henno...........Rhythm Guitar, Vocals
CarlaJPatterson.Vocals
Jankorteweg.....Synth
Doctorzinc......Guitar

The first and second time I listened to this was through the speakers of a Macbook laptop. At that time, I thought the productions sucked big ones.... However, after listening through headphones, I feel quite a bit differently. There are somethings that I think could be done differently, but everyone has their own opinion about mixes. Such is the way with the world.

The song I love. The mix I don't mind, through headphones. I think there could be more space added to the vocals. I believe that the music is mixed well. I have to admit that I was got kind of lost when the vocals came in over the guitar solo, which is the true 1968 sound that I was hoping for.

This is a very talented group of musicians that have come together and I hope that they will do so again. I look forward to hearing more from this group.

Little_Hooligan Listener After reading all that was involved, I'd say this was a MASSIVE COLLAB.. smiley How long did it take you to mix this? It had that retro psychedelic funk feel then added elements of Carla's scatting.. Fun jam

Cool tune and a great big collab, with plenty of going on here...

Groovin bass, smooth keys, funky guitars, good slide solo and some excellent vocal perfomances...

My only criticism would be to agree with Lummie, that the vocals could do with a little more space. but there is so much going on in there, it must have been a mega mixing job!

All in all, this turned out "Alright!" smiley

Space was at a premium, yep smiley (31 trax lol) eventually I decided to let the psychedelia of the voices run wild. I could spend years trimming this one back...instead I let it ride, heheh. It does sound pretty good cranked up on my car stereo where you can feel the bass. I *never* listen to anything on laptop speakers (or even earbuds) anymore, I find it pointless and strenuous on the psyche. This thing needs wattage and decent cones pushing the air to be fully enjoyed.

I think the last 3 minutes are the real payoff where Carla's vocal improv and Fatch's guitar jam together.

I kind of like the way the guys' voices are more forward on this. I feel my presence here and there throughout the song and then, as my husband put it, I kind of come out from behind the wall of sound at the end! It's cool how you wove us all in and out around each other. Wish I knew who was who of the voices I don't know well - with 31 tracks, there is so much to love! smiley It IS very much like a party - been to a few of those in my time... where everyone does music and it's 'bout midnight and everyone is feeling loose... someone starts playing a song we all know at least a little bit and the rest is usually party history! Wild and loud and hard to follow but everyone knows they were in there somewhere. Love it! Different styles, different voices, different approaches, and it all fits together 'cause of your mix. Masterful! Ah, I'm at the end again (listening as I type this!) and there I am at the final 'whoa!'. Fun. smiley

Bab, Carla, your vocals drive this classic. The bkg vox are smile-inducing as well. The almost remind me old War, Cisco Kid kind of vibe! (Wht next, a Low Rider cover?!)

What's the first Traffic album that comes to mind upon hearing this? No, not Shootout at the Fantasy Factory or Low Spark of High-Heeled Boys, but this Dave Mason-saturated live album: Welcome to the Canteen. And I miss my long-long-lost cassette of that album.

Baboon—whippin' crazy good vocals man. Took me back. Seriously sounds like early Steve Marriott (who by the way is my all time, all time, all time favorite singer of all time). The rest is a trip! Excellent arrangement, cool vocal parts, and superior overall sound. Dang, your voice...nice. Everyone really threw some righteous stuff into this one. Best collaboration I've heard in a long time.

Many thanks are due here:
When I first put out the offer (challenge!) many iComp artists jumped onboard, some with solo tracks others with multiple tracks. I collected all these tracks for nearly three months! Finally a deadline was put out and the sorting began. Luckily, an offer was made to mix, which was a great relief. But after transferring all 30+ tracks, move large .wav files, the volunteer was evidently overwhelmed and quit. Just in the nick of time, however, Frank (Baboon) agreed to do the mix, plus he wanted to add his own vocals. Another half day's worth of transfers, but this time, Babs came thru. And there you have it, the history of iComp's Feeling Alright. Thanks all, 'twas fun to do and even more fun to listen!

Missed the party apparently. Love it. Bass2xs bass is as usual wonderful stuff. Like the part atmosphere with the bvox too. Rhythm guitars are sweet and the understated lead in the mix is just right to these ears.
