Bank Vault Reverb - The Bob Keane Sound

I was hunting this morning for the answer to a question that I have wanted to know for years... "How did Bob Keane get such amazing sounding reverb on the Bobby Fuller Four records?"

Alas I found the answer.


From Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Records:

"Singing in his Texas drawl, Fuller seemed to channel his idol, Buddy Holly, on this tune penned by the Crickets' Curtis. "I Fought the Law" was a bracing hybrid of outlaw romanticism, garage rock, surf music, Wall of Sound and British Invasion energy. Keane created the track's rich reverb by using the vault of a bank next door to the L.A. studio as an echo chamber."

Now all I need to do is find a vault!
