Nice cover.
Is it only a stereo track recording or a multitrack one ?

Very nice!! One of my favourite George songs.

Just a first listen through on a bluetooth earbud, so take all with grain of salt.

You did an excellent job of isolating the band in the space.

I wanted to hear the audience and the space a bit more. That's personal taste though. I like cheers and hollers and singing along. I also like to hear some natural reverb. It's a bit dry and contained. It's a high-energy number. I'd like to hear it build. Again, this is just my personal opinion.

All in all, great work!

It's not a great mix but more of a reasonable mix of a band under live conditions (not all of which ever seem to be favourable) ;-)

It is one of my favourite's too which is mainly why I put it up.

It was a small stage with 6 or 7 piece band and I only had a 16 channel mixer available for the gig but I needed channels for 6 vocals, 3 acoustic guitars, keyboards, 2 electric guitars and drums. So, unfortunately, no channels available for the audience but I agree some audience input would have been nice.

Thanks for the comments

You did a great job with what you had. I figured there would have to be a reason you didn't include the audience.

Do you have a spatial reverb plugin like Waves Trueverb? I'm talking a reverb that models specific spaces. It might help the mix sound a little less "bottled," if that makes sense.

I have a number of Waves plugins but to be honest am not a big fan but I do know what you mean.
From memory, I tried adding a little verb (on the lead vox, snare and something else I think) but depending on the amount of track bleed it caused phasing issues so decided to run without.

Some audience sound would have certainly helped

I hear you. I was just thinking about what I would do. I'm sure you made the right choice.

Good work.

Very nice. I do agree with more spaciousness, but please don't go as far as that horrendous Spector production. All Things is a great album, but it really needs a "de-Spectorized," less verby mix.
