“The Strongman of North America, mix 1” -the Chandler Travis Philharmonic -recorded and mixed by Ducky Carlisle at Dimension and Ice Station Zebra. This is our first preview of “The Strongman of North America”, one of the songs from the forthcoming album “Bocce & Bourbon: the Comfortable Songs of Chandler Travis & David Greenberger.”
This version was the first official mix of the song, and we’re including it here to show how much the song changed during production.
Actually, we were all quite happy with this mix, which is pretty much exactly as we perform it live, plus some fake percussion overdubs and harmony vocals, a totally fine mix, featuring it featuring all the unedited drum, keyboard, horn, and harmony parts, and fine work by all concerned.
On deck: the surprises and left hand turns we encountered on our way to the final version, which we’ll unveil next week…
