Many happies, ASL. No doubt it will be a modest celebration in these strange times. Something sticky to start the day, perhaps, and a glass or two of some beverage to finish it off. Wink

Go well, sir.

Good call to resurrect this topic, B.E.

I was only thinking of this one yesterday. I'm not a fan of the original 1930 rendition by Lotte Lenya but The Doors really nail it for me:

Love the original track. Only the drums sound a little dull to me but that's a minor quibble. Nice to hear Brian's voice during the tag/fade-out.

I think Brian's in the chorus blend, but he doesn't sing on the tag.

Very difficult. Except for SIP, all of their post-LY albums were still listenable imho but nothing matches the golden era from '63 'til '68 and the best of their 70s material. Light Album is a good listen and Good Timin' is one of my favorite BB songs, so I'll probably go with that one, even though Brian's absence is a bit depressing here.

Speaking of studio version song tempo… Does anybody know, did the band ever use click tracks in the pre-digital age?

I wonder how much thought and planning went into determining tempo, or if it was a very spur of the moment type of thing that just happened.

They used metronomes, a Rhythm King (early drum machine), and eventually click tracks (at Brother Studio).


Interesting. Would the metronome be used just at the start of the session to get into the right groove of a tempo?
Or would the drummer be listening to the rhythm of a metronome fed into headphones to play along with for the whole song?

Well, all of the examples I can think of (or at least know about) were when tracks were laid down without a drummer. For instance, you can hear the metronome on "Cuddle Up". The Rhythm King was used on, among other songs, "'Til I Die", and on that one the snare drum was added later. Dennis spoke about laying down piano with a click track and adding drums later.

Thanks, c-man!

America's version of "Head and Heart" from their 1972 album, Homecoming. I prefer the lead vocal and the addition of chorus harmony vocals.
