Here are some pictures of the Earth, Wind & Fire Holiday CD I recorded last year at NRG Studios in North Hollywood, CA. We spent most of the summer and into early fall working hard to make the holiday release deadline. We spent a few weeks at NRG (studio B) arranging and recording the basic tracks with many overdubs. All the vocals were recorded at Philip Baileyâ€™s home studio. Horns recorded at LAFX in North Hollywood and strings at Capitol Records Studio in Hollywood.
A few close up pic’s of the setup & mic positioning. It was a full rhythm section session with bass, drums, percussion, keys and two guitars.
The awesome Vintage Neve 8078 (with additional 1073 Mic Preamps) in Studio B
