DJP asked me for input while he was working through this, so I was fortunate to have heard this throughout its WIP stages and through completion. DJP doesn't disappoint. I think this is arguably his best arrangement to date. I recommend repeated listenings for people who aren't very open minded. It may not impress most listeners at first glance, but this mix has a lot of heart, authenticity and I really think DJP is perhaps the most flexible arranger in the community. Everything in the mix just sounds authentic - from the great accordion, piano and guitar sequencing to even the complimentary instruments like the solo violin. I also want to note the part at 2:10-2:20 was fantastic. The icing on this cake is the quality production values we've come to expect from DJP.
My favorite Earthbound mix, and overall, truly splendid work.

I absolutely hate the way this song starts, but once the melody of twoson kicks in this is a really unique track.
Very very very nice stuff.
I was a bit suprised not to have the funk with this one.
So while this track absolutely rocks...
Make longer and resubmit.

You've given a great style to this song. I'm a big fan of Earthbound, and this song is calming and a little bit 'Nostalgious' to me. I think that you've really put positive and fitting style to it. Great song(s)!
I remember Yellow Laser. Those were the good days...

Sexy sexy stuff. Your memories of travelling are very suited for this; it's got a lot of forward momentum.
Is this the closest thing to country we have amoung all the OCRs?

This is great work DJP. The production quality really stands out from the crowd, and the arrangement is excellent. More importantly, I believe you truly captured the essence of the original Twoson song. My only complaint is that the ending was slightly too short/abrupt. Thanks again for all the work you've done for this community.
ditto to everything there. short ending, but otherwise amazing. I usually don't enjoy Earthboudn remixes, because the origional is almost always better and more emotionally stimulating. This is definitely a keeper though.
