Glad you like "Southbound" Sue. That was a tricky mastering problem, it sounded great on its own but didn't "sit" with the other tracks. The solution came to me at 3am, sat bolt upright, dashed into my home studio where I was doing the mastering, and mastered it "blind" (or should that be "deaf" since I didn't want to annoy the neighbours by switching on the monitors). Next morning I tested the track with the monitors on and it only needed a minor tweak to finish it!!!
I was quite chuffed with that ...
All the best
