That was a nice album to do after I left the insanity of LA.

I sure did like the sound of Klipsch Horn speakers powered by ganged McIntosh 275
tube amps.

Speaking of horn speakers, did you ever run into any installations of the IMF "Project E" horn systems?

No, but I'm interested...other studios I worked used Altec A-500 "Voice of the
theater" speakers with 500 cycle cross-over to the horn..Engineers had to get
used to each loudspeaker array, as they could fool & did, lots.

Somewhere, I read that Motown engineers used some crappy little monitor speaker, because they wanted results that would kick ass on the transistor radios of the day.

Project E was mentioned in one of the company's newsletters as a no-holds-barred approach. Small satellite speakers handled the high end. For all the lower frequencies, you got a horn driver with a few inches of throat connected. From there, it was up to the audio enthusiast to create the rest of the horn in concrete, for a poured-in-place installation. What it all weighed I can only imagine, but the finished straight horns were supposed to be eighteen feet deep.

We did the same thing in all the studios....grab a mult, have a 1 watt transmitter &
broadcast the mix over the cheeze-ball radio. That's why you all heard (most) mixes
cookin'.

I liked David Bromberg's retelling of Mister Bojangles including the line "and late at night, after the clubs closed, we'd do horrible things to it."

That's a Jerry Jeff Walker song, not a Jonathan Edwards song, but that's a classic Bromberg album - had one of my all-time favorites on it, Electric Chair (Mr. Sirica, please!).:).
