Sister Golden Hair Live by The Bald eagles

Hi all, sorry but I haven't been around much since I registered here. BUT, I have been checking in and doing lots of writing and mixing and listening
I just wanted to thank you all for the mixes you all did on my other tracks and I will post comments on those threads as soon as I can.
Here is a link to some more Live tracks by my band The Bald Eagles. We are an Eagles cover band but have worked some other material into the act.

Sister Golden Hair quote from Wikipedia:"...Sister Golden Hair is a song written by Gerry Beckley and recorded by the band America for their fifth album Hearts (1975). It was their second single to reach number one on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100, remaining in the top position for just one week...."

:o

We gave it a red hot go but in the end I re-recorded the backing vocals at home. And again, there are some tuning issues from our slide player.
These live tracks have been cleaned up a bit by me. Sorry, but I had a mix on my system and it was just easier to export the stems as they were than to go back and copy the original tracks again. See what you think and if you want the raw tracks I can upload them instead. For anyone using Studio One there is also a Studio One song file in there with a rough mix I did.

They are 24 bit / 48kHz

And there is even a video of us playing it here:

Hope this is something you can play with.
Cheers,

I'll have to give this one a try. My son played it solo before he went off to school.

I'd like to take a stab at it too. Is the offer to provide the unprocessed files too still valid? That would be very helpful.

Thanks,

Very difficult material. Needs a lot more time to do the song justice, but this must do for now. Not everything can be fixed anyway.

Edit: Oops, the acoustic guitar got shifted from the second verse on. I'll fix that ASAP.

... fixed! :)

Regards,

stoman: The mix feels a little hollow to me, I think it lacks body. What I like is how you can hear the bass lines well, that's something I didn't do that good. The vocals are clear and audible, so that's good.

This was a little bit difficult and just noticed some weird drumming in the beginning that's not supposed to be there :). This is my try: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/23688706/sistergolden14.mp3
