First Mix

Mixing the first tune for the new record today. It's all 8-track analog tape without any modern automation, so the mixes are a performance in themselves, being finished by Adam as we go. Track by track and all hands to the deck for the faders on the board. Been years since I've had to do that. What a blast!

Southern sunshine and lighting storms are alternating above us today in South Nashville, rain soaked outdoor BBQ for lunch, and that 'tape-running-over-play-heads' scent that I haven't  smelled in a decade. It's good to be back! Those Cosmic Thug boys and I working together is setting quite a high bar. Now, I've gotta go home tonight and write some more to bring in tomorrow and shake the foundation of what we've already got.

Let the horse-jumping commence!
