This book contains insightful interviews with 31 of the most famous audio engineers, including Phil Ramone, Elliot Sheiner, Bob Clearmountain, Al Schmitt, and many more, and explores their use, methodology, and in some cases, invention of classic analog recording hardware. This gear, so new and innovative in the sixties and seventies, is still coveted by many audio professionals as vintage or classic gear today. These engineers lived through and defined the transition from analog to solid state to digital, combining new and old every step of the way. The interviews are loaded with advice and insight on how recording is an art form and how one might go about becoming a master.
The book is in excellent condition with only a few light markings on the covers and text block edges, and inside pages are clean and bright.
