Studio Stories: How the Great New York Records Were Made: From Miles to Madonna, Sinatra to the Ramones Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This is an engaging account of some of the most memorable moments in New York's recording history, as seen through the eyes (and ears) of the many producers, engineers, songwriters, and recording artists who helped make them happen. It explores the explosive 30 years between 1950 and 1980 and the numerous ingredients that made them unique - artists performing live in large, vibrant recording spaces, producers and engineers spontaneously creating new effects and techniques; composers writing parts on demand in the studio; and, most important, recording studios that had life, character, and their own fingerprint sound.

Book News Annotation:

For more than 30 years New York City was recognized as the place where the great popular recordings were being made. In this accessibly written text, Simons draws upon interviews with artists, producers, and executives to describe some of the most memorable moments in NYC recording history during the period 1950-1980. The text is accompanied throughout by b&w photographs of recording artists at work in the studio.
