Bonus post today- I posted this a couple weeks back and one of the band members mentioned Guy’s vocals being buried in the mix. His vocals were almost always low in the mix. I rebalanced this one and pushed the vocals up as much as possible and got some feedback that this one sounds better. So here is the boosted vocal version for you.
I was digging through a tray of tapes a while back for something else and came across this one. This is one of my favorite TWR tapes, out of the ~100ish that I have. ML told me that this is just a straight board mix, but it came out amazing. TWR board mixes are usually unbalanced because they played so loud, but this one was close to perfect- all I had to do was boost the high end a bit. A rare case when the band sounds amazing and the mix works. Thanks ML for sending this to me about 30 years ago!!
Listen with headphones- Roger’s guitar is in one channel and guy’s is in the other. Kick ass, espcially during Mr. Limpet.
