Drums on Song I Heard the Ocean Sing

Mr. Blake-

I've been a long time admirer of your treatment of the drumset. In particular I was wondering about the unique sound on Phish's "Song I Heard the Ocean Sing"

I've heard two theories on that "crunchy yet clean" sound on that record. Was it:

1) Your traditional Sans Amp treatment

2) Saturation of the Side of a M/S encode of the drum bus (The most common rumor I've heard)

Or was it a combination of both?

Thanks again for making such unique yet approachable records!

Warmest Regards,
Chad Jacobsen

I don't know what #2 is but it sounds cool. I'm afraid it's just a bit of Level Loc (heavily compressed mono kit mic close to the K&SN) + Sans Amp on the kick, Spectrsonics 610's added to OH's.
