Crisis What Crisis?

Hi Ken! Like many others have said, thanks for doing this.

Supertramp were one of the groups I was bought up on, and Crisis What Crisis? was actually the first album I listened to where the sonics caught my attention - I still think that album is one of the best sounding records I've ever heard - it's just all where it should be sonically...

Here's my question:
How much of the process of making that album was working with the sound of the musician's instruments, and how much was working with mic choice, mic'ing positions and other technicalities?

I ask as someone who is currently at Uni, and constantly frustrated by musicians who just expect you to put *microphone X* in front of them and "make it sound good" without once being able to work with the sound of their instruments.

Many thanks,
