Say whaaat? My Morning Jacket frontman Jim James has remixed Bob Marley’s “Waiting In Vain” for a forthcoming compilation entitled Legend Remixed, curated by Ziggy and Stephen Marley. The compilation will be out June 25, and as The Line of Best Fit report, Jim James had the following to say about his remix:
“I wanted to give the listener a sense of the same awe I felt when I first pulled up the multi-track masters and soloed out the vocals only. It was so unbelievable for me to finally be able to hear the voice I had loved for so long all by itself. So I built the opening around the vocal with minimal bass synth and percussion as well as adding some harmonies in myself.”
