The editing for ‘Seven Days And One Week’ was a complete joy, as each section of the original track was very clear and precise, and chopping and rearranging was totally painless (although at 3:28 you can hear a slight glitch in my audio slicing).
In terms of actual editing, I removed 16 bars before the first breakdown and also after the breakdown, bringing the track length down.
‘Flaming June’ was introduced at 4:09 and in terms of the disc itself, it was one of the most important mix transitions, as it was signalling the last track of the first disc.
I initially wanted ‘Flaming June’ to come in over the breakdown at 1:51, but I felt it took attention away from the break, and lessened the impact of when the track is built up again.
In the end I decided to have ‘Flaming June’ come in at 4:09 and was taken by surprise at how effectively it worked, the rhythm of the delays in ‘Seven Days And One Week’ gently complemented the atmospheric introduction of ‘Flaming June’, and when the reversed cymbal at 4:36 comes in, the reverb tail glides and melts harmonically into the piano reverb of ‘Flaming June’.
