Love this track, And great job to Mustin with his instrumental capabilities. Everything sounds great in this, from guitar to the harmonica solo. The only downside is that the track's a little quiet overall, but hey, that's nothing to be picky about, it just gives me a reason to kick up the volume :D

Nice intro, and i was feelin' the sound of this overall. The trumpet was pretty weak, some intonation and breath support issues there, but otherwise, the rest was awesome. Nice harmonica, and though the production wasn't pristine, the same room sound made it feel really live.

Short and sweet.

Completely forgot that SMB3 World 3 was the forefather of the Fairy Fountain theme from Zelda. Epic as hell.

Mustin does a tremendous job with the material here, and on a technical level, its a powerhouse. Effective as synthetic instruments are, I think a mix like this proves just how beneficial and special live instruments are, particularly when it's 100% live acoustic. Though it does show signs of being pieced together and not recorded in the one session, it hardly makes a difference. The live vibe is there, and it sounds great.

I liked the sax and the harmonica lead, whereas other elements veered on the edge of being lost in the back. A close and focused listen really brings those elements out though.

Overall, this brings a lot to a very simple melody. It's catchy, elegant and overall, it has an awesome personality thanks to its intimate approach and live emphasis. Feel good stuff.
