Those old recordings were typically done on 2 inch analog tape, which has 10 times the audio fidelity or "data" than any modern digital master. This is why the old vinyl records sound so much better, like you are sitting in the same room with the band, much more "live" sounding. They were so much more dynamic than the newer digitally mastered recordings, which sound flat and compressed... Much more fun to listen to, in spite of the scratches, clicks and pops. I still have a remnant of my vinyl collection, maybe 100 albums or so.

They are pressing vinyl from newer digital masters, but they suck compared to the old analog recordings. Also, if you listen to anything that's been converted to digital, it loses it's "life".

On a side note, I had the pleasure of doing some recording with a local band on 2 inch analog tape at the Cavern Studio in Tucson, in the mid 90s, just before the crossover to digital. Of course, this example has been converted to digital, but sounds O.K., by today's standards, through good headphones or speaker system. I played electric bass and did some backing vocals. I also doubled up with the bass on an electric 6 string baritone guitar on the bass solo on "Average Man".

It also features some of my watercolors from a few years back.

3 songs from, "Eyes In The Forest".

Maybe still a bit "over-produced". Converting it to digital just makes it easier to edit and tamper with. I had nothing to do with the mixing and/or production, just played... Let me know what you think... the bass could have been louder. LOL

What?! No kudos on my former band "Eyes In The Forest" and my outstanding bass lines,?... my pals. I wrote those bass lines myself!

... I guess it was "over-produced" and too much like elevator music for you rock connoisseurs.

I know you aren't interested but, here's some earlier more raw recordings I did myself with various musicians and friends, all original. All you have to do is click on the link and then on the songs. It's my Bandmix profile. Hey, what do I have to lose now? LOL

Hey, been offline for a bit. If you hadn’t put the date on the songs, I’d have guessed it was recorded in the 60’s instead of the 80’s, and I mean that as a complement. What you call over production, back in the 60’s would have been called psychedelic. I really enjoyed “Percolator; had that reggae vibe going on.” No worries, mon, they were fun. The hair on fire thing was pretty cool too.
