Technical Notes:
The album was recorded at Rumbo Recorders, Los Angeles, and Jardines Barn, Big Sur, California.
All recording was done on Neve consoles, operating in class A, and Studer A-800 multi-track tape recorders.
Two 24-track Studer tape recorders and a Neve, NECAM computer assisted console were electronically linked together for the final 48 track mixdown.
Microphones used include: Vocals - Neumann M-49; RCA 77-DX; Wahrenbrock PZM-A.
Instruments - AKG C-24, D-12; PZM-A; Neumann U-87, KM 84; Shure SM 57.
Tape to disc transfer made at Kendun Recorders utilizing Neumann disc cutting equipment.

All selections were recorded in true stereophonic sound with special attention to spatial perspective.
This type of recording is much more exciting to hear since it fills the room with sound much as would be present in a live performance.
