OCR00544 - Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island "Dino Band Rehearsal"

Recommended Posts

Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island 'Dino Band Rehearsal'

Well, what can I say? Another hit from McV, this time in a ragtime style that suits the original perfectly and is executed very well. It's short, but it *feels* like it's just the right length. Highly recommended.

The original was probably my favorite song from that game, and this style fits it PERFECTLY. The only thing I would have liked to be different would for there to be more of it. It's a little short. Also, it would have been cool to add another instrument (jazz style saxophone or clarinet maybe?). Great mix though.

I love this remix! Personally, I think it is the best one on the site. It sounds like its own song, but also sound exactly like the original, which was a great song to begin with!

I don't know if McVaffe ever looks around here, but I thought I'd let him know that this song inspired me to draw a picture from that game.

I listened to this song as I drew it, inked it, and colored it!

Thanks for the great beats for this great game, McVaffe!

The remix it self is excellent as far as sonic quality is concerned, but has little variation and is lacking layers. BUT WAIT! In this case it is a good thing! It is exactly what is called for and is by no means a condescending comment. Its great and perfect the way it is.

This song is excellent and just what the doctor ordered, but I have two major gripes.

A) An excellent piano sound is used but the melody/bass is far too much separated, ruining for me what would have been a very realistic piece.

B) I can't hear them perfectly, but I'm fairly sure that some (well most) of the bass octave to chord transitions would be impossible - it's just not possible to move one's hands instantly. That 'holding' effect comes as a result of pedaling, which I didn't hear, as it should have affected the melody as well in that case. And, obviously, the sound of the notes.

But I'm getting picky here.

9.5/10 for this awesome piece - kudos to McV for daring to do ragtime. :D

Wow ... McVaffe comes up huge again.

This song is amazing. McVaffe's remixes always make my day ... they are so incredibly well done that they flow seamlessly and sound almost effortless, despite their stellar quality of both sample quality and arrangement.

Three thumbs up. :D

Yoshi's Rag is one my favorite ReMixes that has come out of this site, period. It is very realistic and incorporates naught of the techno genre, which is pleasing to those of us who you might call "music purists". This piece fits very well the atmosphere of the original game in its light-heartedness and fun air. The piece starts off with a ragtime-style piano and light percussion until it is joined by the bass at about the 25" mark. The piece pulls into a higher key for the last thirty seconds or so before ending at a total of 1 minute and 30 seconds, and for the quality of the piece this is far too short a length. McVaffe is highly acclaimed in the ReMixing circle, and rightly so, not just for this mix but for his others. If the site administrator decided to make an album of this site's best, Yoshi's Rag would be a prime contender. A great piece of music ReMixed flawlessly by the incomparable McVaffe. Not quite as rowdy as McVaffe's "Phazeremix Rag", but for all intents and purposes I believe I prefer this piece over his ragtime mix from Super Mario Bros. 2. A recommended download for all.

I love it when McVaffe does ragtime. I remember back in his old AOL MIDI days he had quite a few original ragtime songs that were very enjoyable. Yoshi's Rag is a great piece of work, but not my favorite McV ragtime tune. That would go to the MIDI titled simply "MCVRAG2.MID" I got from AOL about 45 years ago (it seems). Keep up the rag!

McVaffe has another nice work here. Athletic Theme is my favourite music from Yoshi's Island. The piano is brilliant and beautiful. Simple and adorable remix. Highly recommended. =^.^=

This is so much fun, short and sweet! I just wanna sit down listening to this and bounce up and down in my chair, lol! That's how uplifting it is. Scott Joplin ain't got nothing on this! Good stuff, McVaffe!

It should be mandatory for good remixes to be at least 3 minutes long. a minute and a half of this!? This makes the "Entertainer" look like a horribly sung Britney Spears song. catchy, addictive, and too short! But highly reccomended.

Really short, but fun. Much like this review. :<

Hah, just joking. It's a good genre adaptation, though beyond a few counterpoint ideas that aren't added until later on, it's a pretty simplistic, though engaging take on the theme. If you want cheering up, this is your mix!

I was going to make some of the songs from this website in a fanfic of mine. This goes good with a tavern scene.

Btw, didn't this song was called something else? I remember this song from before but I can't quite put my finger on it. Hmm...

Anyways, cool song!

Ah short and so sweet...

This reminds me so much of one of those old timey ragtime player pianos.

Normally I'd complain about how short a mix like this is, but it just works as it is. It's so tightly encapsulated that to draw it out would ruin it.

My only objection is the ending; it's too abrupt. Wham! and it's over...

Still this is a great little mix and worth checking out.

They should have renamed this Super McVaffe World 2. Out of 6 tracks, he's done 4 and they are all awesome! This reminds me of that ragtime song "hello, my honey" or whatever it's called. It is short, but that's the only fault I see. Great piano work and a unique take on the track. Ragtime rocks.

Short, seemingly simple, and one of my favorite OC ReMixes. I seem to remember this song by another name: 'Yoshi's Rag' I think. Anyways, digging the atmosphere here. Nice panned piano, bass and percussion. Way to express Kondo's great melody.
