Beth Gibbons and Rustin' Man – Out of Season


Firstly, thanks for sharing your wisdom with us here!

This is one of my favorite albums of all time, constantly on repeat. I love the lush strings and horns, the dark vocals, all the brilliantly textured background sounds seamlessly faded in and out.

I'd love to hear anything you could tell me about this album.

What was your involvement, exactly? I did notice there were a lot of engineering credits on it–did they move around a bit?

I'd love to know how the lead vocals, background vocals, acoustic guitar, piano, and strings were recorded and treated. I've heard she did a lot of lead vocals at home on a 57. A lot of the backgrounds sound a bit smoother, though–were those done much differently?

Once again, any info would be appreciated!
