How the great New York Records were made: From Miles to Madonna, Sinatra to the Ramones. Backbeat 2004. 316+8 bildsidor 16x24cm, ill. med s/v foton, hft.
This is an engaging account of some of the most memorable moments in New York's recording history, as seen through the eyes (and ears) of the many producers, engineers, songwriters, and recording artists who helped make them happen.
Including interviews with key players such as Tony Bennett, Stephen Stills and Joey Ramone, this book charts New York's golden era from the early days of magnetic tape to the arrival of digital multitrack.
A portrait of a world that has been swept away by technological change, Studio Stories describes artists performing live in large, vibrant recording spaces; producers and engineers spontaneously creating new effects and techniques; composers writing parts on demand in the studio; and, most importantly, recording studios that had life, character, and their own fingerprint sound.
It takes you back to the 50s with Frank Sinatra, through the 60s with Bob Dylan, The Lovin' Spoonful and Simon and Garfunkel, the 70s with The Who and The Ramones, and into the 80s with Madonna.
