Engineer, Russ Long. Producer, Steve Taylor.
Recorded at The White House and The Carport, Nashville, TN.
From the Squint Entertainment – Elektra/Asylum release “There She Goes”.
This track was recorded while Russ Long was reviewing the R-121 for Pro Audio Review Magazine in 1999 (read review).
Two R-121’s used to record all electric guitars and cello.
Interestingly, the lead vocal on this track (and also on the Sixpence hit “Kiss Me”) was sung on a Coles 4038 ribbon microphone, highly equalized to approximate the performance of a condenser microphone. Ribbons are extremely EQ-friendly, so don’t be afraid to turn the knobs!
Engineer: Dusty Wakeman
