Uriah Heep - Easy Living (Completed)

    Published on 02 Apr 2024 / In Rock / Classic Rock

    One of Uriah Heep's most famous songs. From the "Demons and Wizards" album (1972).

    Thanks to the band:
    Drums: Bdajaysus
    Vocals: CopyCat
    Bass: CyberBass
    Guitar: FelKeys
    Organ: Nordlicht

    FYI: Track 3 ("MP3") contains all our audio recordings done within BH, that were then separately mixed, edited and mastered with professional tools. We also used the isolated original backing vocals of the song, as Uriah Heep's BV arrangements are quite unique and therefore hard to recreate. For the sake of an overall better result we have made this decision.

    Yes, it is one of several "Kreeptures", Kitty has collected over time.

    @CyberBass: Kitty is my wife, and we actually met on the former Bandhub. Life writes the craziest stories.

    Thanks to all of you! It was a pleasure to have you in the "band".

    I have also edited the collab description (added your names) and I will then close/lock the collab if that is OK for everyone.

    OK, I have just cleaned up the collab, moved the two backing tracks to the drafts and muted all our single tracks. (I also noticed that yesterday there were still our tracks active, therefore this phasing effect. Now only the DAW mix - track 3 - is sounding.)

    @CopyCat : Yes, thanks! Unfortunately it's no Hi-Fi quality as BH is compressing the files quite strongly ;)

    Hi guys, I took the time to download all our tracks and mix them properly in an external DAW. Did a bit of cleanup and added John's missing first bass drum hit. This separate mix is track 5 and muted at the moment. Listen to it, I think it sounds a whole lot better. If you want, we can do the same with the final tracks/collab.

    @Nordlicht: Alf nice clean mix and you obviously prefer a slap rather than a kick, I'll remember that next time ;-)

    Sounds very good - shame we cannot upload the whole collab here, but we can do it on youtube

    Man, it sounds really good, your mix is great, you made my guitar sound better :) Now I am happy with the version. Great playing you all!

    @FelKeys : Thanks! I've EQ'ed all tracks, added a bit of track compression, panning of guitar and organ and a final "mastering". For me this mix (resp. the result) would be absolutely OK to publish, but let's wait for Copycat's feedback. We could just mute all our tracks and only activate audio on the "mix track".
