Subject: RE: Johnny Burnette - Dreamin' - 1960
Like Snuff Garrett. I feel, early in Pop music, there were better recording engineers - great pride in sound quality.
Perhaps because they did not have the technology - they had to depend on their ears.
"Sergeant Pepper" was on just 4 tracks and what's wrong with it?
When Nashville went 4 track, somebody asked Chet Atkins what would be the advantage of 16 track.
He thought for a moment, and said - "well I suppose it would be fine for producers who do not know what to do next".
Now Chet was a producer.
And if you really want to know what real producers back in the fifties with just two tracks could do - listen to Norman Petty and any Buddy Holly track you like.
And of course Snuff Garrett is in the same mould.
And from the same area.
The Tex-Mex sound.
And you thought I was not watching your posts!
