WORDS Re-Mix!


What DIDN’T I do to this mix? I used a “wide-stereo” version of the LP song, then added an extra instrumental break. The bass is double-tracked, even triple-tracked at the end, as well as some of the Eddie Ho drumming.... Add a few bits from the “TV version” of the tune (not much would really fit, due to the differing tempos-it may deserve it’s OWN re-mix!), and some backwards-masking...Extra percussion and such here and there...I also did some lengthening on the ending..It now comes in over 4 minutes! A very psychedlic tune!






FOR PETE'S SAKE Re-Mix!


This was lots of fun. Taking the vocals-less backing track from the HEADQUARTERS DELUXE CD set, I looped the song twice, then dropped in the vocals here and there throughout. I also added some sound bites from the “Devil and Peter Tork” episode at the front and ending to give it a great feel.





MARY, MARY Re-Mix!


This was a real no-brainer! I always wanted to lengthen that great drum intro, and stretch the song a bit, so here it is! Tons of neat little effects on this one!





RANDY SCOUSE GIT Re-Mix!


Once again, I used the vocal-less track from the Rhino HEADQUARTERS 4-Cd set, and then brought in vocals from the usual tracks...I also added elements from the early run-thrus, which was difficult, as they all had slightly different tempos!





PLEASANT VALLEY SUNDAY Re-Mix!


This is probably the most successful of the re-mixes. it involves the vocal-less karoke track, then bringing in the “usual” track with Micky’s fabulous vocals, but adjusting them to sound more laid-back and ethereal. I also brought in the many different endings to create a wild climax, with added drums and bass!
