Glenn Berger Recounts Working On Dylan's Classic Blood On The Tracks at A&R Recording

This is a link to my friend Glenn Berger's blog.
Glenn and I have a few things in common. We both started our careers very young, right out of high school. We both were trained by Phil Ramone at the peak of his career. Glenn preceded me by a few years and was already a staff engineer at A&R when I started, I doubt he was more than 22 or so at the time. After many years in the music business Glenn became a shrink, I just went to one.
Enjoy it!
It is a great read!

I'm Back!

This past year has been a very busy one for me. We have been very fortunate that the studio has been  booked solid. I moved a couple of months ago and have been buried under boxes ever since.
I enjoy writing this blog, and it bothers me that I haven't put time aside to keep it up to date.
So if you are checking in, check back in a week or two and some new ideas that I have been working on should be posted.
The great innovator and recording engineer Roger Nichols passed away this week. He was known most for his work with Steely Dan but he was an incredible inventor as well . I only had the pleasure of working with Roger once during the Quincy Jones produced, Phil Ramone engineered Sinatra album " L.A. is My Lady".  Inventor of one of the first audio samplers, and engineer of some of the greatest records of my time, he will be missed.
