Laid back major-key balm

Something I remember enjoying during the 04 June 2008 gig at The Plough, about half an hour in. Occasionally a track comes along that is such a pleasure to mix, the delight is listening to it again and again as I audition and edit it. This almost one of those. I say almost, because although it is essentially wonderful, it does have a few hairs, is not completely organised harmonically and needed a little editing. No matter, to me the first little-practised secret to success in a piece like this is the slow tempo. For us, it's always when the best music happens, because the players have time to think, and time to relax. Another reason I like this is that it's a great advocate against playing solo. Mike's fluid guitaring, Nick's calm bass support, and Os's alert reprocessing all took three heads. Four if you factor the percussive pattering which I'm glad I kept reasonably under control.
