GUEST,Ralphie Noah's Ark Trap (Nic Jones album) (211* d) RE: Noah's Ark Trap 06 Jul 11

John...Thanks for that breakdown of the sessions (oh to have been there, you lucky bugger!) C12/414's..Thats posh, and expensive!
I think that you have put an end to Bonzos diatribe. No doubt he'll be back complaining about something else.
Considering (as you say) the equipment that Bill ahd Johnny Gill had at their disposal, between them, they made some magnificant, nay seminal recordings in that period, Bonzo has just got a naff pressing, that's all.
My one regret is that I never met John Gill. From what I understand, one of the finest engineers of recording acoustic music of his era.
As an aside, I'm pretty sure that Beatles used C12's as vocal mics, judging by the pictures I've seen. If it's good enough for Abbey Road!
