Gwinsound re-sings (Ben Freedman) for DW
  • Davey_wDavey_w June 24
    As promised - here you go! These were done for me about 8 years ago I think. The first cut is definitely Gwinsound, not sure about the second cut. I'm sure someone will tell me. All lyrics on the first cut by erm ..me and for the second cut I kept most of the original lyrics on the first half (why tamper with perfection!) and customised the second half. Hope you like them, I certainly did!!

  • The second cut is also Gwinsound. This cut is from Gwinsound Series 9 package.

    Can I ask if Tony Griffin does a Personal Cuts arrangement of the Gwinsound packages?
  • Want to contact them direct and see what happens Ron? Would be worth following up.

    I can think of a particular "pirate era" cut that a few people might like resung if it was still extant and
    in stereo? (The "Chairman of the Board" cut e,g, for WLOF...)
  • PKPK June 25
    As far as I'm aware the "Chairman" track does exist as Ben Freedman did do resings of it but unfortunately I don't think the backing track for that jingle is in stereo.
  • PK, would be a shame if only mono or not on some kind of multi-track.

    Wonder what could be done with a damn good set of digital filter banks?

    (I found the WLOF cuts again a just a few days ago while rummaging through some backup disks;
    the "Chairman" actually stills sounds very punchy even today without being too "big band" sound
    that dates so much other material from the era. )

    Drop Steve Gustufson an email at TGPTXSales@aol.com --- It all depends if the backing tracks are in a usable form (they originate for the sessions from here, btw).

    You are correct, as I just checked. Gwinsound Series 9 backing tracks were mixed to mono, not stereo. I don't recall, off the top of my head, if a multitrack exist for that particular package.
  • For reference....

    If a multi-track of that ever surfaces amongst those old reels TC..........

    Thanks Tracy. Will try him and see what response I get.

    For years we thought this was the original :-)

    Little did we know way back then ;)

    I haven't threaded it up... but... it might be able to be remixed into stereo (but somehow I doubt it). I just can't figure out why it wouldn't have been done previously!
