Way to go with the dub mix. It works really well. Really unexpected yet a natural feel for this tune. Great job.

Indeed
Great Point . That and maybe the south wouldve realized slavery is Wrong . This is an interesting mix now that I think about it. Reagge has long been a style preaching freedom from slavery . The civil war was fought over the same issue,......hmmmmm. Interesting cycle dont ya think ?

I reckon that between us we could sort out all the world's problems. Bit of Reggae/bit of weed - problems solved. I could be Prime Minister, you could be President.

You know, when I first heard Rebsie's take on this,
my first thought was. Man, that would make a great reggae tune. Ok, I'm like totally fibbing. How fun this is!
lengold said 4376 days ago (July 23rd, 2007)
That's funny
'cause my first thought was electropop.

LOL

You did promise a fun entry and fun it is Len :o) I just
love the timing on those flam fills in the gaps/pauses
in Rebsie's backing. Bit of snipping her part to make it
a bit more snappy if I'm not mistaken too.

That violin sound is a bit 'scratchy' IMO though... athough I really like the additional 'dee doot' bit though ..lol.

Yeah mon .. rebstafari!

A perfect example...
...of why music is the coolest way to travel inside of someone else's world...

Thick and chunky rich, with goodness!

Vox... Drums.. Bass... Violin... The odd toy synth piano/organ... That funky weird twagn' thang at the end... Production values.. - All very impressive!

Thanks! Macca

ya got ta ston up for ya rites mon
now I've heard them all.. I laughed at first.. until I realized that this is a very good job... and the vocal worked in a layed back way over the top of this... excellent idea... what a cool contest this is for bringiing out the creativity of MJ... is there a genre that is not represented?... you've done your part

bravo

up in smoke
Very chilled out mix.
The overall production is better than most dub/reggae I've heard.
Excellent groove.

I've never successfully played anything like this. I think you have to be a natural mystic.
Good work.

i overlooked you sorry!!
in so many versions of the same song names i didn't notice you, sorry for that len.
NEVER in my life EVER i could imagine that one can make out of the most traditional irish song a reggae! unbelievable. i am raising the hut to you. not only for the result, which is great and so unusual. but mostly for the fantastic fresh idea :) i like very much the bass and that extraterrestrial close-tongued fiddle. and the ending (the bell) gives little scary feeling, which is very joyful in the contrast with the happy rhythm of reggae. very nice twist at the end. very good job :)

If You Tells Me
...this Rebsie singing could be a groovin' reggae piece, I tells you that you be smokin' a little too much herb, man. Of course, I be sayin' it with a big smile because music be the ultimate herb and ideas be the ultimate groove, and when the ultimate groove and ultimate herb get together, it going to be one cool runnings, you know. And you do it one nice ride.

Another Fav to me iTunes, man. Great job, great job.

Aces!!!
len, you really did a piece of work on this ... this coulda been a disaster, but it's wonderfully playful! This works with rebsies vocals so well great drums, and a really chilled feel, which oddly works with the emotion of her vocal.

Big risk, but you pulled it off - well done man!!!

Message from Yordbear:
Hey Len! Im testing my new monitor cans on your super duper drum pumping reggae track.

Excellent drums and bass on this.
are you a drummer?

I like the vocal fusion - the vocal styles of sandy dennys folk and the pumping reggae!
Where are the lyrics? i want to sing along!

Nice one!

lengold said 3502 days ago (December 13th, 2009)
Glad you liked
Aron, it was just a bit of fun for a MJ's competition. We were supplied with Rebsie's vocal and had to create a track around it. I am just a frustrated drummer. The song is a traditional American thing, lyrics here:
