That's exactly what Joni Mitchell did with the song. The best versions 
remain the original instrumental and Annie Ross's amazing version with 
Lambert, Hendricks, & Ross. Corin originally liked Mitchell's version, 
but she started to enjoy the LH&R version much more.

The tempo on this recording is ~170. She tried it at 180, it was fun but 
a little too fast. She nailed it though.

Maybe if she were centered in the stereo field, then "split" at the end ?

She loved the effect. She's new to this sort of thing... ;)

Mic's a Shure SM58. Corin has a strong voice, so I have her stand about 
six to ten inches away from the mic when  she records.

The mic goes into an M-Audio preamp, then into the Delta 66 interface to 
the computer (and on into Ardour2).

Yes, thank you very much. Alas, I've had no time to play with them. 
However, I do plan a review of convolution reverbs for Linux, so I will 
be testing those 'verbs soon.

As always, thanks for listening, Fons. I appreciate all comments, and 
I'll be sure to pass compliments on to Corin.
