That's correct for Raising Sand. Engineer was Mike Piersante, it was one of T Bone's U47's for Robert and a Blue Cactus for Alison. He also put up an RCA 44BX under each mic for options, but the strong magnets of the RCA's created a huge hum being in close proximity to the condensers, so they scrapped that. I believe they went into a 1073 or 1081 and then LA2A.
