Paul Simon's America

I had a lot of fun doing this.

Sometimes I think I like real corny stuff and it doesn't appeal to anyone. But F it, that's the way it is.

This is one of my all time favorite songs and I loved playing it and making this video.

I love that, Tony. Nice to hear other textures with the vibes. Great mix. I just have to flip my headphones around ;-)

i never think about that.
what side should the vibes be on!

it should always be as if you're looking at the instrument?

My preference is how I am looking at the instrument (piano, vibes), low notes on left. We've had discussions on VW many years ago with Gary:

"Thanks Barry K for letting me know that the audio channels were reversed on the CD re-release. I was unaware of that. Always, I have the lower end of the vibes on the left, so it sounds like the player hears the instrument. Piano is always recorded that way, too. So someone definitely made an engineering mistake with that. "

Some people prefer that the channels be how the audience sees the player; high notes on the left.
