Well, here's my quick alternative mix.  It's not polished, but it
illustrates what I was trying to say before.


I've tried to get rid of the muddyness, by altering your organ sound
(taking out a lot of the mid/low end) without removing it completely.

I've also cut back on the stereo separation.  This is a personal taste
thing, but I find over-use of stereo a little strange sounding,
especially on headphones.  Of course, everyone has a different
defenition of over-use.  I like to use the stereo space to give some
separation between sounds without making them sound like they come
from the far edges of the stage.

There's a break in the drums where I thought it needed it, but I
haven't bothered making a nice fill to connect it back up - still,
sounds OK.

And I didn't bother with the echoeyness, even though I like the sound
you had for that.

I think I may have the vocals up too much, but what do you think?

Just something different.  It was fun to do.  I really do like this

Hope you don't mind what I've done to it.
