Lives for gear

Jerry Boys has a very good reputation as an engineer over here, and although Livingstone wasn't SSL/Studer equipped I think its unfair to describe it as a "B" Studio.

The Cuban sessions was subject of a fairly lengthy write up by Audio Media I believe. A lot of gear, (particularly mic's) were shipped out for the session and if you look at the documentary that they made about the making of the record and the All Stars band you will see most of the recording mics are things like U87's and 414's.

Ry Cooder was producer on the sessions and indeed played on some of the tracks and the tour along with his son. Great music and a fabulous legacy.
