RIP Marty Balin of Jefferson Airplane

RIP Marty Balin of Jefferson Airplane

It's a real bummer to hear of Marty Balin's passing at 76 years old..........The Jefferson Airplane, Marty and the S.F. music scene were very influential on my early musical development. I still listen to Surrealistic Pillow to this day. I saw them in concert at The Fillmore West in the 70's. Marty and the band definitely lived by the rock mantra of "Sex, Drugs, and Rock 'n Roll". RIP in the great psychedelic sky Marty..........

The memory of Jefferson Airplane in concert was the catalyst for my song San Francisco Daze.  Here's one for you...RIP Marty.

The reason I review songs


By Farrell Jackson, 2017-10-27

I've been thinking about the song reviews I do at Mixposure. If you've heard the songs I write and the collaborations I get involved with, you'll most likely agree that my interest in music styles and genres varies greatly. So it follows the same road when I choose songs to review. On average, I review approximately 1.1 songs a day according the Mixposure statistics that are shown on the Community/New Songs pages. That's not an extraordinary amount by no means but do know that I listen to many more songs than that.

If I hear something in a song I like then I'll leave a comment......if I don't, I won't. The comment/s might  be just a few words or a more detailed analysis of what I like about the song. I believe artists appreciate even a comment like "good song!". It let's them know someone is listening to their creativity and hard work it took to take a song from nothing and to the point of posting it up.

I suppose the real reason I'm writing this blog is to let you know if you get a comment from me, however slight, it's an honest comment. I'm not shining you on or trying to boost my review numbers. There's nothing to gain by doing that. I'm leaving the words because something in your song caught my ear, struck a note, and made me feel. I think/hope you would like to know your effort paid off and hasn't fallen by the wayside....even if it's just a micro encouragement from someone you don't even know.  

My ramble for this morning...............I need to back off the caffeine...........

Create an album option


By Farrell Jackson, 2016-08-17

I posted this question in the Forum section under "How To Create An Album". I'm not sure it was seen so I'm blogging it on the front page. Any advice appreciated.

"I was wondering if anyone has used the "create an album" function at Mixposure? I have 4 completed albums and working on #5 so I've been thinking about moving the respective songs into an album format instead of having them posted randomly. If anyone has done this, could you reply to this post with your thoughts? I'd also like to see how it worked on your page.  Thanks in advance!"

One Tank of Gas

One Tank of Gas

Cooter sent me a private message while in the chat room at Mixposure Radio to see if I was interested in creating music for some words he had. The lyric was excellent so I went to work on the music. The song started to grow from there. As it progressed I realized it needed some help from musical friends  to reach the full potential I was hearing my head. David C. Deal did some fantastic work on the cello, violins, organ and piano. Buddrumming recording the perfect drum track and created a nice poster ad for it. The song is now complete and time to post up. A great collaboration and a huge thank you to all involved!

Lady In The Mirror

Lady In The Mirror

I had recorded this as a mono acoustic/vocal scratch track to save the idea and to help generate some production thoughts. I liked the first take so I decided to stay with my original mono acoustic/vocal track and just use it as the base to build the song around. I wrote this for the proposed "anything haunted" Mixposure song contest but that seems to have dissipated like a ghostly apparition so I'm posting it up now. I hope you like it!
