Discussion in 'Music Corner' started by Steve Hoffman, Jun 12, 2009.
I liked seeing the soldering iron in the final picture.
And the guitar picks with amp off to the left side of the picture.
It is most enjoyable to hear from people that are involved in bringing good music to us as opposed to the negative tone that a few of the threads generate. Thank you for posting this.
Thanks for adding those "contrast" photos, Steve!
Maybe it's just me, but I like the old mixing board a lot better....
What are the speakers in the last photo?
Thanks so much for posting this. Bruce has done a lot of really good work. Nice pics too.
I hope you can interview Al Schmitt some time as well.
Awesome, awesome stuff, Steve!
I've exchanged communicaton with Jeff. He's indeed a dedicated guy with boundless energy. The Doors music site spells out just exactly what these guys have done to preserve and honor The Doors' legacy. The Doors fans here need to pay the site a visit and join their discussion groups
Thanks Steve and thanks Bruce!
...So cool reading about, and remembering, how cool radio was back then - the diversity, the talent.
that interview was fantastic. thanks a bunch!
Now, about those Doors singles mixes...
Thanks Steve & Bruce; I'll save the interview..and great pictures too!
Nice article Steve. Thanks for posting that.
Agreed! Many times that's as good as the music they helped create. I love the behind the scenes stuff.
Thanks for this interesting interview........
Great read there, Steve....
What a fascinating treat! Thank you Steve.
Now get those Soft Parade & Morrison Hotel cd's ready
A very interesting read Steve. Thanks for sharing it here.
I especially like Bruce's statement about new acts coming in and recording them as he heard them, not thinking it would be historic.
Also, his desire to have the music "come out" as it sounded, essentially in the best possible way. His analogy of "the color red" as he sees it as being that of the person he's describing it to. He wanted to get the best possible sound with the equipment he was using. Very interesting stuff.
Very good - Thank you Steve and Bruce.
Great engineer. The first Doors and Sergio Mendes/Brazil '66 albums sound stand out in my mind re his work. Love that sound on those...
Thanks for posting that interview. Great read!
That's a lot of interesting info. Steve! Thanks!
It's nice to know that Lani Hall's voice was recorded live at the same time the accompanying instruments were recorded.
This interview has also made me want to get a copy of Arthur Lee amd Love's "Forvever Changes."
It's a fantastic album but it certainly doesn't sound anywhere near as good as the Sergio Mendes stuff. Quality of musicians? Studio? Mixing?
There are still many great engineers around.
Young 'uns too...
Saw it earlier on The Doors site. Nice read.
Can we please get the 45rpm mix of "Touch Me" on CD sometime soon? Pleeeeeze>>>!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
