Is this where you took residence, in this Yamaha Arranger forum? Great to hear your arrangements again. Still the best orchestrations I have heard on any arranger with real professionalism. A great arranger keyboard helps.
Your 'Stoned Soul Picnic' was stunning. I heard the 5th Dimension perform at Epcot Disney World a few years back. I think at least two members were original and the band was great.
Love your song selections you decide to work on and all the effort you put into them. It is a learning experience with all the details you list. I think I'll hang in this Yamaha forum for a while.
