And -- if it is slightly tape-speed altered, and was Reggie's idea to do that, wouldn't it be hilarious?  One minute he's speeding up the tape to make Brian sound like a 10 year old, the next he wants the guys to sound as manly as possible.

Maybe it wasn't all Reggie's idea: All the discussion about these lower register voices at this time reminded me how there was talk at this same time about changing the band name to something more "manly", like "The Beach Men" or even "The Beach", and even going back to the Wild Honey era there were reports that Brian was upset with the band being referred to as choirboys, with their trademark high-register vocal sounds.

So it would make perfect sense, and fit into the timeline, if they deliberately went for lower vocal sounds like the ones we're discussing to change that perception and maybe score a hit with a lower sound. Source of the band name topic: The Carlin book, for one.

Are we allowed to know any details of it?

I think Alan described it in his ESQ interview a couple of weeks ago. He said it was pretty inconsequential, if that was what he was referring to.

There's a lot of stuff to discuss re: Feel Flows music and production. I've been humbly thinking of suggesting a new thread about it. Just a tiny example: the sound of the backing vocals excerpt of "Break Away". Are these slowed down?

More accurately, some of those vocals were recorded with the tape running fast, and so played back at "normal" speed they sound lower and slower.

Yes, I was oversimplifiying it. That was what I was thinking, the "Rain" technique.

Anyone has links to Desper discussing on this board the recording/mixing of the background vocals on Sunflower (eg. the This Whole World tag)? I don't know if it's compression or what, but they never sounded that thick, for lack of a better word.
