Loud vocal in mix

Hi Mr Lanois ,

On a lot of your solo stuff you have your vocal loud in the mix. The sound is very intimate and "close" . Sounds great!

Do you have a go-to recording chain for your own voice?

I'm always searching for the best technique. I've had good recent experience with a U47 three feet back from me. It served well for the vocal but also the acoustic guitar that I was playing. The 47 had no shock mount and therefore picked the sound of my foot thumping thru the wood floor. That's as close as I've come to some of the old blues recordings that I've heard and liked.
