What recording, producing or making of an album would you have loved to have observed in the studio ?
Happy Mondays - Yes Please, was the best bit of that Chris Frantz book
Massive Attack - “Blue Lines”.
That would be amazing!
Reminds me of
Now 13? The Best of the Beatles?
Fleetwood Mac seemed to have an interesting time in the studio. Rumours or Tusk maybe. Guaranteed a bit of everything I reckon.
The La’s. I will still be sitting there now according to Lee Mavers
First thing that came to mind was The Velvet Underground White Light/White Heat, purely for Lady Godiva’s Operation and Sister Ray. To have been around for those sessions would have been Incredible
Exile On Main Street
Early 70s, Stones at their peak, South Of France
QOTSA Songs For The Deaf
Lust For Life or Heroes. Imagine the scenes Bowie and Iggy Pop got up to in the studio together ha
I would have liked to be hanging out with Rinder and Lewis when they did Seven Deadly Sins.
Would have been interesting to sit in on some of Lee Perry’s Black Ark sessions for sure. Just keep your hands off his rubber balls…
90s nerd here but the Beatsies Check your Head sessions would be it for me.
New Order - Technique
Knock out ‘Fine Time’ in the afternoon then a jolly to Amnesia of an evening
Yep, hanging out at G Son studios with the whole BB crew would have been fun.
Looks like they had a great time making Paul’s Boutique as well.
Alexander “Skip” Spence - Oar
Part of me wants to say something like Trout Mask Replica, but personally it’d be really hard to top being able to watch Phil Elverum put together this all-analog masterpiece:
A Love Supreme. Just to be in the room witnessing them make that music would be incredible.
Another one I’d love to have witnessed is Bjork’s “Homogenic”
Enter the 36 Chambers. Such raw rugged energy and bedroom style recording with some of the best MCs to ever hold a mic.
