In part one of this epic installment of the Pro Member Mix Fix Series, Fab Dupont opens up the session for "Bayou Ingenue" by Mark Conner to discover the task ahead.
After reviewing the session, Fab calls Mark to discuss his thoughts and form a plan for the next two days to elevate the track.
With a plan in place, he taps on first-call studio musician, Dave Zerio, to re-track drums, percussion, and organ on the track.

Apparently there are further episodes missing - as such it is not much of a help because you see some editing, but not where it really leads up to.

Why does this end so abruptly? Is there supposed to be an episode 3?

Awesome video! Really great to watch Fab and Dave doing their magic! The "Start to finish" vibe is really there. I'm a huge fan of the Hammond B3. It is because of Rhoda Scott, the bare foot lady, that music has been a big part of my life for 50 years now. This late 40' B3 is a jewel. Cannot wait for the part 2! Thanks guys!

Man I hope it gets tighter. I don't know if playing ahead and "modern" was a good choice on take 1 so far.

Excellent Fab. Right up my alley but having to do it all myself.. e.g. drums/setting up and mixing. Great drummer for that song. Nice work.
