In the studio for ONE album, which one ?

Discussion in 'V.C.'s Parlor' started by DrBeGood, Dec 12, 2019.

  1. What a choice! A three record set from 1971 which I have in my collection. The music alone is remarkable and the album jacket in nothing I've seen before or since. One section pulls away from the other like two separate LPs. Not easily figured out on first discovery. There's liner notes and pics to keep you busy for an hour or more while you listen. What a piece!

    A couple of pics of my copy. Cheers, Barrie.

    Jeff Beck Blow by Blow. Beck AND George Martin!
    Then again, to see Eddie Kramer in action with Jimi would be amazing, or Tom Dowd with Duane, or Bill Szymczyk with Joe Walsh (not the Eagles).

    Don't forget Frank Zappa and the Mothers had the best place around.

    Going to go in a very different direction - U2's Unforgettable Fire. Recorded at Slane Castle where they lived, wrote and recorded. Produced by Eno and Lanois who rewrote a lot of engineering and production "rules" and was the album that kicked the door open for them.

    Thanks for sharing your pics! I have it on vinyl as well, found it in a used record store and had to buy it. I also have a CD version.

    You can thank my Dad for turning me onto this record, he played it a lot when I was just a wee little kid. I think he had Vol. 2 as well. He got to hang with the Dirt Band one time as well when he and my step-mom were playing the same music festival. Perks of backstage access!

    Tie... between McCartney ‘Band on the Run, or Queen ‘News of the world” (or maybe; A night at the opera).

    I will go with "Meet The Beatles". Certainly not their best album, but it took a mere day to record, and of course, would change everything.

    I would say The Rutles' first album. According to the documentary "All You Need is Cash", "Their first album took twenty minutes to record. Their second took even longer."

    I'd probably want to see the recording or Pet Sounds. Genius meeting madness...

    For sheer debauchery it's got to be Exile on Main Street.

    Probably anything from the Beatles. All epic albums.

    The Yes Album. First LP with Steve Howe, huge leap forward from their first two records.
