Subject: RE: Got To Get You Into My Life - 60's Artist Unkown
Thanks, Jim! My only problem is a "producer" and what must one do to be credited as one and who decides that. I ask one producer why he issued '60's mono CD recordings when stereo ones were once available. Surprisingly, he didn't even know that! If he were instrumental in the recordings, he would have known a multi-track tape recorder was used.|
I listen to Kathy Young and hear a producer shouting profanity, not suggestions, because things aren't going as smoothly and quickly as he'd like. I listen to the Beatles childishly argue what's best for their songs; usually Paul won those arguments (Paul is probably the cause of the Beatles' break-up). I listen to early takes and late takes of hit songs and gather the group, producers and song writers had no idea what their "hit" song should sound like.
To me, most producers were like adult supervisors, who had money and/or connections in the music industry. It wasn't necessary for producers to partake in the recording sessions, maybe just pay expenses. Easy return on your investment.
Interesting piece about Joe Meek! Thanks!
