Fantastic. What can I say that hasn't already been said?

Just love the whole production, choir and a capella verse.

Yeah man, the choir and slide is unusual but if you get chance google "sacred steel" and read about the tradition.

Here is my version of Jesus on the mainline. I really like your version. This song has been recorded by many artists. Hope you like it. I used BIAB and Realband. occ

It's all been said so all I can add is this is fantastic.

This really has a live vibe to it and in fact sounds like it could have been recorded in any church.

You all should be very proud of this one.

What a HUGE choir Janice and Floyd were able to do with the Biabettes. Gonna have to enlist a male and try that myself next time.

I thought the vocals were "Heavenly" but that had to be one "hell" of a mix to work on....

Josie

PS. Thanks a lot Janice for getting that song stuck in my head now. <grin>

It's all been said, but I'll say it again -- Wow!!! This is some great work. The vocal are wonderful and I think I will download that "hand claps" realdrums file. I discovered how hard human percussion is to record when I tried it myself (ha, ha).

There are two things that I would consider, though:

1.) I would still consider easing back that slide in the left hand speaker especially in the beginning. It seems to compete with the vocal too much.

2.) Instead of using the same instrument in the right speaker (slide) and then back in the left during the solo, maybe you want to consider an entirely different lead instrument on the right.

In any case, super duper and I think I listened three times in a row.

Look under the "User Tracks" forum...


Thanks for doing that floyd. Already have a use for them in mind.

Thanks Josie, glad you like the production. It was downright intimidating until floyd helped with the mix!

Chiming in again...

This has been a great project to work on. A lot of fun. The Merrits are such pros. This was truly a team effort. A real co-production.

For information's sake... the details of "the choir"...
I had originally intended to do a mainly BIABette choir. Use Janice's main vocal to generate several and then I would follow her lead and then generate some more. I did generate 8 BIABette tracks from Janice's vocal - but only used 4 of them. I started recording myself and just kept going until I had sung 8 parts (4 harmony parts double tracked). And Janice added a harmony and a counter.

So the choir was 14 tracks - 4 generated and 10 sung...

There are actually 16 tracks of clapping - but a lot of that was copy and manipulate....

Thanks for letting me join you guys for this!

Glad you liked! We enjoyed your version. Shows how many ways this song can be done.

Thanks! Floyd conjured up that live feel for sure. 14 vocals tracks didn't hurt!

Heaven and hell for sure -- that's why I turned the mix over to him! And, yep, this song will stick in the head.

Thanks for the comments and the recommendations. If you get a chance please listen again as we have reduced the lead re stepping on the vocal and have made some changes with Janice's second lead. Decided to stay with the steel as the sole solo (I like that) instrument to keep with the Sacred Steel band tradition...but your comment is certainly understandable -- particularly given that I tried a sax early on. Much appreciate the remarks and thanks again to floyd for mixing!
