Incubus- Morning View.

Something amazingly unshined, unmolested about the sound of that record.. really adds to the character and mood.

Robyn Hitchcock's Respect was recorded in his house by John Leckie...as I learned by asking John Leckie right here on Gearslutz. Really nice album, that one. But I guess I love The Basement Tapes and Music From Big Pink quite a bit more.

Seems to me I remember something about some guy (and his wife, Mary) recording some stuff at home (and on the road) back in the day.

I think they even named a guitar after the guy.

Gibson, (..something... ) ? ? ?



(Its right on the tip of my tongue...)

What was the story with Paul recording an album with one u87 in a Scottish farm house? Wasn't that RAM?

How about this... list your favorite records - "not recorded in a house of any kind, all takes done outdoors"

Does Abbey Road qualify as a house?

our home studio

We have recorded about 75 albums in our living room - kitchen, about 25 releases on Frogville records and the rest for independent local acts.

I bet there are hundreds of great albums recorded in homes. We get a great sound here at our home studio, although nothing for any majors and also nothing that had a budget for promotion and marketing, which is maybe why nothing big has come from here YET!

I can name 25 bands you never heard of, but we have had blues legend Taj Mahal here, singer Shannon Mcnally, country fiddler Johnny Gimbal (bob wills texas playboys), actors Val Kilmer and Gary Farmer have recorded music here too.

we decided to expand, building more studio space surrounding the original house.

people get relaxed in a living room environment, feel comfy = best performance.

I hope not to loose that vibe in the expansion.heh

Why are all these people with the big budgets going back into houses to record. Comfort factor? Save money on a real studio? They like to make things hard on themselves?

I think the last Blink 182 record was done in a house.

Given my choice of a relaxed studio in a house or a pro studio I'd take the house hands down.
No booked time.Don't have to leave.Nobody else coming in.Work when I (we) want.
Something cool about standing in an old kitchen and singing to cupboards.

Songs From Big Pink was not recorded in a house. The second "Brown" album was recorded in Sammy Davis Jr's pool house in LA.

I think people get confused with the Basement tapes, which actually were recorded in the basement in Saugerties, NY before the release of Big Pink.

Some of the songs off Paul`s "McCartney" album were recorded at home then finished at Abbey Road. But, it was "McCartney II" that was mostly(if not completely) recorded at home. Paul just plugged the microphone into the back of a Studer 16-track tape machine; not using a mixing console to track.


McCartney II is one of my favorite "at home" recorded albums. It has such a unique sound and is probably vastly underrated.

I'd have to say Bon Iver- For Emma, Forever Ago.
I believe that was recorded up in his fathers cabin in Wisconsin if I'm not mistaken.
