Journeyman - Glascock's bass is so punchy and penetrating

Overlaid by Martin's guitar work

Seconded and then some. Such great songs. I would submit Dun Ringill in this category as well.

The flute is generally mixed to the back on this record , which gives it a very pleasing sound, as the flute thickens the sound, rather than defines it.

I would have to agree with C's sentiments that this is one of Mr. Wilson's best remixing/remastering efforts. Just astonishing.
