By Heather Johnson
Heather Johnson's attention-grabbing booklet is a historical past of a large a part of my specialist existence!
I'm a Bay zone local, a violinist, operating within the neighborhood live performance halls, theater pits and recording studios for greater than 35 years. yet this booklet is going again even farther than that. My dad had a list shop in Berkeley, and that i vividly consider a visit to the outdated Circle files urgent plant in SF; i could not were greater than seven, so it used to be round 1952. I hadn't considered it in years, if no longer a long time, until eventually I stumbled on connection with it in Johnson's booklet. That used to be only one of many fond memories brought on through her research.
I labored in each studio (I imagine) coated within the e-book, at one time or one other. It was once quite attention-grabbing to learn interviews with the various engineers I labored with, in addition to to get a extra entire thought of the move of the recording company through the years, seeing how amenities replaced fingers, upgraded (and sometimes downgraded), etc.
A diversified type of "trip down reminiscence Lane" than for lots of, i guess, yet this ebook yes invoked a few nostalgia during this outdated fiddler! Any musician who is performed severe studio paintings hereabouts could take pleasure in the hassle Heather Johnson placed into her booklet.
