Remembering Davy Jones.

After weeks of work, I was just putting the finishing touches on this re-mix of YOU AND I, when the news came in.

So long, Manchester Cowboy.

About the re-mix: To start my re-mix of this 1969 Monkees classic, I used the rare backing track (newly released by Rhino Records), added percussion, tamborine, “double drum” effects, extra bass, and some lengthening, along with a few other treats, and away we go on this rocker! Last task was to lay in Davy’s voice tracks from the original release of the song (since no vocals were ever put down on this version), having to cut and place each phrase to make them fit! Some studio chatter culled from a number of other songs and takes were also added. Click below to hear!
