I put together a mix that includes all the collabs (as far as I know.) It needs some refining, but here is the first draft.

Thanks to all involved - you are all great musicians!

It's not too late to get in on the fun. I'd love to hear more people get in on this one.

Here is the list of players so far.

vaporman - vocals, bass sounds and acoustic guitar
sstebbe - piano
Rant - drums & vibe sounds
yohmar - beats
ponkey - electric guitar
jolofsson - backing vocals, strings and I'm not really sure what else!
easyesteemer - organ, guitar, bleeping noises
rovert10 - Rovertizing
1weavingspider - cool noises & stuff

hope I didn't forget anything!

The credit goes to the artists. That amazing piano is sstebbe. I would expect nothing less from him. I can truly say I've worked with some of the best musicians in the world now.

Yeah, the timeline was pretty crowded! My computer won't even play that many tracks. Had to just guess what it would sound like and then export to iTunes. I think I need a new computer!

or maybe I should try to talk Woodguy into mixing it on his new G5! Then I bet he could talk lilichi into doing the vocals so I don't have to listen to myself!

Dude this is lush. Thank you for keeping my rubbish guitar part low in the mix - it works a lot better like that. As for everyone else's contributions, I am awestruck. The piano and organ together give this such a wonderful texture but to be honest it's hard to say what where and how stuff works in this. It's just a glorious coming together of different elements.

(Stars are, of course, for everyone but myself.)

Thanks for the comments & stars everyone!

lili, it can get better than this. I'm still waiting on some tracks from a few people before I go for the final mix. hint hint.

ponk, don't think you're getting off that easily! I'm pretty sure the final mix will feature your guitar more prominently in some spot, just not quite sure where it will work best yet.

I'm still hoping that someone will lay down a cool bass line so that I can get rid of that synth bass. I'm also hoping that some of the people who worked on this could send me some individual tracks so I can clean things up a bit. As it is now, I had to bury some parts a bit because the tracks had too much of my original tracks in them and they were clashing. If anyone wants to send something, my email address is vaporman442 at gmail dot com (the 442 is for my favorite car!)

I love it! I like the fact that I can hear your words now. The whole thing is so off-beat and different.

You've done a lot of neat things with my piano part.

This is way more "arranged" now, and thought-out, than before. I don't believe in evolution, but THIS song sure has evolved! And in a very good way.

You provided a simple yet excellent framework for all of these great cats to hang licks on.

The part I like best is your new take on your vocals. -- Much more effective now.

That piano ending is pretty good, if I don't say so myself. Thanks for including that.

What a panel of artists we have here. Difficult to know who does what but in fact it does not really matter to me. This is so accomplish and mature. All those sounds that arrives where we don't expect them. This magnificient vocals and to me a special awards for the piano that is so clear and wonderful with that jazzy spice. Moowwwwwoaa I love this. Congratulation guys.

I think the British expression of 'gobsmacked' might be appropriate here. Don't know why but it made me think of Dark Side of the Moon. Amazing stuff.

Love the beautiful piano chord choices and the contrary guitar build-up...ushers the vocals and prepares the listener for more complexity.

Production gets a 10! Kudos to all. Vap, your voice sounds great. A tree has fallen in the forest. I did not hear it, but now have seen it fell on a Mercedes. (Cool.)

Hennessey, you are more than welcome to join in the fun. I haven't checked out your stuff yet, but this isn't an exclusive club. smiley Also, I plan to post a new project very soon. This one is going well, but I've learned a bit in the process. The next one should go much more smoothly!

As an update on this collaboration, I've gotten clean tracks back from everyone but Rant, and from what I've put together so far, it sounds MUCH cleaner than this! RabbitMan has agreed to stop by this weekend and lay down a bass track for me, so there will be real bass rather than synth. That should warm the whole thing up considerably!

Dave, thanks for the translation!

dakdakdak — I echo your sentiment. ssstebbe originally felt like he wouldn't have time due to his holiday obligations, but I'm really glad he did! I can never say enough good stuff about him!

Ian — Thank you! That is a big compliment from someone who produces such incredible sounding music!
