Verve

Hi Alnico
Check some other posts for Verve info.
Album recorded and mixed at Sawmills with John Cornfield and me engineering. Most tracks cut live with guide vocals in quite a small low ceilinged room. Most of Nick's guitar would be what he played with band on backing tracks. We never started rolling tape til Nick was happy with his sound. He usually used Flying V and Gibson acoustics. Pedals were probably Boss and amp ? studio Marshall and Roland Chorus. Delays were sometimes Watkins Copicat and i think at one time we dragged an SPX90 out of rack to fix into his guitar rig. Guitars usually recorded with U67 and SM57 on each cabinet up close to speaker. In the room all guitar cabs would be boxed in with screens and roofs and fairly confined space. Reverbs and stuff added later on mix
Cheers
