I heard it. You can Listen Again HERE
I seem to
remember the 'old git' describing how the bedraggled Ms & Ps were put into this rather
basic studio and they did do it one pass and they tracked it a few times until (and I
almost quote) "... it was a few generations old" meaning (I am assuming) that they had a
limited track count and much bouncing down went on. He actually attributed that smudged
and blurred quality of the vocal recordings through excessive bounce downs and submixes of
their vocals to the 'sound' of the Mamas.
The programmes were very interesting
actually and describes a period when music was the focal point of a generation and how it
was a vehicle for a new generation - a far cry from these days!!
It then went
on to describe how 'corporate' America came in to exploit this commercially.
Worth a listen and pertinent to the other thread hereabouts about music and society and
the effects (or otherwise) of one on the other perhaps.
