"Can the Can" Drum sound

Hi Phil!
Thanks for being here!
I would like to know how did you get the Drum sound in the record "Can the Can" of Suzi Quatro.
In the specific: what mike configuration you used? is a very "in the face" recording and at the same time have a lot of air..
And, if you have memories about it, what tape recorder you used?

Thank you very much for your amazing recordings!!
Carlo.

Wow - a while ago. Can the Can was recorded in Studio Two at Island Studios Basing Street on a 3M 16 track machine. The live room was small 30' X 20'. Drums - U87 as Overhead, 2 X U87's on Toms, Snare AKG 224 and an AKG D12 on Bass Drum. Everything close mic'd but some 'leakage' onto other instruments.

Hi Phil,

Only one U87 for overhead? How much of the bottom end if any was kept from it?

Thank you

yes back then I often used 1 overhead - mono. Especially if a small kit and not many cymbals. I doubt I would have rolled much bass end out - gave the drums the 'air' space and size.
