Dear Internet,

Temple Sound.

Produced by the almighty T. Dallas Reed.

On the way to the studio.  John giving orders, probably.

We're haulin' ass!

John and Jaymes in the control room.  Me in the reflection from the vocal booth.

Everything was recorded to 16-track, 2" tape.  Yum.  Will be mixing/mastered on digital later.

The control room.

Mr. Reed setting up/tuning drums for us.  He's pretty much the pro at it.

Trying to learn as best we can.  I'm leaning on an old Marhsall JMP 50 watter.  John used this as his doubled guitar tracks, with the Laney out in front.

Sound checkin'

A clearer shot of Bournigal's kit.

Jaymes and our beloved Ampeg setup.

John doing scratch guitar tracks.

Tony Reed at the console.

Tony and Chris Jr. in the control room, making important decisions.

The finished recording setup for Bournigal's kit.

Bournigal's point of view from the live room.

Bournigal is happy that the drum tracks are finished.

My favorite pre-amp.  Mmm, Avalon gear is gorgeous.

I think these are Jaymes feet.

Mr. Reed, a god.


Laying down final guitar tracks.  John used the Laney for his primary tracks, and a Marshall JMP w/4x12 JCM 900 1960's cabinet for the secondary doubles.

My pedal board lazing about.

Since Bournigal's drum tracks are done... can he come over for a cool chick's birthday party?

We'll be done around 2:00 tomorrow.

Hope everything is going well with recording also.

damn I wish I could have gotten you my cymbals but I forgot that you probably dont even have my phone number or anything. I wish I could have gone just to watch...

That picture of the Avalon will pretty much be my desktop. What a beauty. And yes those ARE my feet. And no there aren't enough pictures of me! Nice documentation and commentary.

Of course those are your feet. No one else I know stands with his feet so close together (marching band style) so frequently. I agree though, way more pictures of Jaymes are necessary.

PS, I lied, it's 24-track tape. WTF, typo.
