Hey Marcus,
This is totally off the top of me head, cuz projects tend to run up against each other...

... being a second, second on while Whitney Houston sang in studio D at Sigma Sound Studios (tiny little room) with Michael Masser producing. He never erased anything so we'd spend all morning making as many 'slave' tapes as possible to be ready for the many many tracks he'd ask her to record. She'd sing one after the other, with so much power you could hear the walls of that tiny room shivering when I walked in with her tea or water! Awesome. I think she loaded up 45 slaves (for all you youngins, that's 22tracks times 45 tapes) 990 takes!!!! try that and still perform yer ass off!!

I'll try and hit you with more when i've got a sec,

WOW! Thanks a lot for sharing that, Tony. That certainly IS something to really think about. I guess great work seldom comes easily.

When working on the mix "One More Chance" for Notorious BIG at Hit Factory studio A (no longer in existence), I worked on the mix for almost two weeks. After about five days the track was printed and most of Faith Evans' vocals. Big was in an out during this time and sometimes would sit next to me and jus listen. For two days, he would jus say, play it one more time. I tried to keep myself busy by tweakin this or that, and he'd jus keep saying play it one more time... after sitting next to me for several days he finally said, "aiight, put up a mic". He went in (no paper, no pens) and knocked out his vocal and adlibs. Killed it. I don't think there were more than two punches on the whole vocal track!

i got that good love girl, you didn't know.
