If you could sit in on one album being made - what would it be?

What recording, producing or making of an album would you have loved to have observed in the studio ?

Reminds me of

Now 13? The Best of the Beatles? :joy:

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

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…

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.

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.
