Anything by Jerry Jeff Walker. For instance "Mr. Bo Jangles" played and written on a J-45.

Thanks, gents.

Leonard McCoy - I remember importing "Wild World" one time out of memory. Sure enough, that main pick-click was not what I was after. Glad no-one was watching that memory fail moment. [biggrin]

Hogeye - I will explore this one some more. I found some bad quality sound postings, but guitar levels were wonderful.

Paul14 - of course! Brain spasm time. I will do some youtubing later.

Interesting CD with great liner notes by your engineer. I saw the picture and got excited about the use of an API console. The closest I'll ever get (to any console) is the newest UAD emulation that I finally got last month. I fell in love with it instantly. I know it's reputation is for some harder Rock stuff, but it really exploits the whole acoustic signal very well. LP and HP filters help to the point where I used almost no EQ downstream. So many variables, though, as is also listed in high level in the liner notes. Mic placement, the player, the room, etc, etc.

It was a great listen. Very nicely done.

Thanks! It was a pleasure to produce, and using that console was way cool.

At one point, the CD went to #2 on the US folk radio charts. It was a privilege to play a role, however small, in spreading Gibson and Kalamazoo Gal goodness to the world.

Thanks for these, drathbun and Tman.

That guitar on the left early in "Here Comes the Sun" impresses me with how defined both the regular strumming and the muted strumming are both so clear. About the 20 second mark. I wonder if it was always like that, meaning before the loudness wars, or simply their technical prowess with the compressors at tracking/mixing.

I think what you're hearing at the 20-second mark is the blending in of the electric guitar track that Harrison laid down on August 6 where he played an electric fed through a Leslie rotating speaker. The original J200 acoustic tracks were recorded by Harrison the previous July 7, 1969. That opening 20 seconds of J200 panned hard left has always been pure J200 for me. For the rest of the song, the lead guitar riffs are mostly subsumed by the swirling Leslie/electric guitar part. This is why I appreciate the Harrison/Simon version so much because you just get pure Harrison acoustic - sublime.
