I'd rather not say because people won't leave him alone about Marvin. There are a couple engineers here in Nashville who people won't leave alone about Elvis Presley. Having your name on a legendary album seems to be a very mixed blessing.

Totally respect that Bob.  It's nice to know he is out there.  I should have just asked, "Is he around and is he making records?".

I've been in those shoes slightly.  They fit awful.

I think the conclusion that there wasn't any eq or compression used on this record answered my question.  It was a ding!.  

All music sounds best when captured and then left alone.  That's why I'm going nuts on microphones and rooms lately.  And musicianship.

Must go clap under the tin chamber on West Grand soon.  I have to do that once every five years to cleanse my soul.

The place to clap is in studio A. The records had mostly EMT.

It was mentioned earlier in the thread, and i have to give it a a shout out because I love it so much.  Eldorado studios still exists in burbank.  My favorite live room in LA.  Incredible room, incredible gear, and amazing people.  I'm not sure how much of the gear made it over from marvin's, but i know at least some of the compressors and mics did.

Eldorado looks nice.  Bob, did you ever record at United Sound in Detroit?  I remember when it was for sale in 1997.  I think they built I-94 right through it now though.

I hung out at United a lot while I was in high school.

Did a session Friday at Nashville's old Quadraphonic studio. (Think Dobie Grey's "Slip Away," Neil Young's "Heart of Gold," etc.)

Pulled up the drum mikes on the Neve 8068 and what I heard made me want to re-record everything I've ever done in my life!

Rooms matter!

OHHHHH MAn.

Mine, and my two year old daughters favorite album for relaxing is Heart of Gold.  She's usually totally zonked by 'Heart of Gold'.  That album makes me long so bad to start from scratch, to buy a nice coverted barn like the one I did several records in Aspen in. To starve again.  To only use the five perfect mics I own and a plate verb.  To do everything right.

What other great rockesque records were done at quadraphonic Bob?  Do they have re20's there?

Tell us about the room!

The room sounds unbelievable! I  recorded drums in a couple of great rooms before but this is really outstanding indeed!!

Art Stewart is one of my closest friends from Motown.

He told me that he managed to record and mix "Here My Dear" with no eq. or compression at all, just fader moves! I'll have to ask about mikes the next time we talk.


Hi,

Someone call me?

Thanks for the links Bob!  Very cool to see alot of that stuff and I now have a few more must buy albums on my list.

My urge to return to just tracking bands in rooms is overwhelming.  Circumstances led me into a more modern game at the moment but the soul yearns hard.

Just hearing the drum samples on the site is an ahhhh moment.

These pictures of United were sent to be by Ed Wolfrum... I know I posted some of them in another thread some where but I though it would be appropriate for this one as well...
