Having recorded the drum tracks for the band’s second album, The Southern Harmony and Musical Companion, in just three days, this time Gorman decided to put a lot more thought into the drum sounds. A few months later...
Steve Gorman says:
“What ended up being released was our second take at making an album in 1994; we did one in January and one in May. Our engineer and co-producer Jack Puig was very much a ‘sonic head’.”
“We brought in a ton of drums and we tried so many sounds – we had eight or nine snare drums, and before any song we would say, ‘Let’s see how all these sound’.”
“There was a vintage 28" marching drum that we put a pedal to and got a few songs out of, and we would spend hours just getting the sound of the kick drum, which was a great experience for me.”
