We checked out loads of mic's while recording Spirit of Eden - U47, U67, Coles, ended up using a (relatively modern) Neumann U89. Through Neve 1082, no eq, Fairchild. On Mark Hollis solo album its the same two U49's (crossed cardioid pair) as used for the whole album. Recorded through the original prototype Focusrite. If you listen in headphones you can 'see' his vocal 'moving'.
