sorry - thought I had replied. 2 chapters in Are We still Rolling? regarding the recording of SoE and Laughing Stock. Briefly - each; a year in the studio, in the dark, no EQ, little compression, 48 track analogue Studar A800, plus a Mitsubishi 32 track digital, plus 5 X slave analogue reels. Distant room mic's, everything overdubbed, no band tracks,
