Earlier this year, we linked over to an article on Producer John Hanlon On Recording Neil Young's two latest albums, Americana and Psychedelic Pill. If you enjoyed that posting, you'll definitely enjoy this one.
Here's an inside tour of Neil Young's Broken Arrow Ranch's Redwood Studios with Engineer John Nowland on Audio Technology (.PDF) by Andy Stewart.
Here's a clip on The Neil Young Archives:
John Nowland: When we first embarked on this huge project we collected every tape we could get our hands on and put it up in the tape barn. The best thing about the barn is its proximity and privacy. Getting to the master tapes easily is critical for us because Neil might come in at any minute and go, ‘Hey, you know, I was remembering this song… could you go and see if you can pull the track sheet for it?’So print this one out, pull up a chair, pour a favorite beverage and enjoy Meanwhile back at the ranch (.PDF) by Andy Stewart.
Because of its proximity to my office I can just wander over, and in one minute, I have the master he’s referring to.
