Peter Collins produced Counterparts. Shirley might have been an engineer.
Bruce recorded this album on crutches with a ruptured Achilles. Steve did the bulk of the writing and co-produced the record. I'm sure he was a bit knackered. They are in their 60's. Give them a break.....The studio video was kind of a let down for me. Bruce and Steve seemed low energy. Gave the usual spiel, "This is the best album!". Wish they would've sampled a new song or something. Writing On the Wall was just decent.
In this context comp likely refers to compiling from multiple takes.Shirley's to do list from the video. Darkest hour....something something. Hell on Earth..Jan Comp Prelude? Jan has to finish the prelude/intro or Shirley has to add compression on the prelude/interlude
The release of this studio video created hype again... and given the short time I think a second single is unlikely - maybe after the release of the album.
Is that because he had to do lots of fixups? Where the guitars out of tune, the drumming off time?Kevin said that it's the hardest album he has ever made
I think it's because of the way the guys have approached it. They've talked about jamming ideas out, recording rehearsals etc. So there's probably been a lot of cutting in and out of different takes for different sections and trying to make sure it flows and sounds natural. If the songs are really complex then that's hard work.Is that because he had to do lots of fixups? Where the guitars out of tune, the drumming off time?
I would have thought if really good professionals come prepared into the studio then the recording process would be easy.
