Subject: The Lovin' Spoonful - Daydream - 1965
My friend Mike once mentioned, what a shame they didn't have digital recording capabilities back in the '60's or before.|
In my mind, analog recording capabilities were very good, but wasn't good was the song ideas and compositions and engineers. Who could record "live" and achieve a hit? Not many. Overdubbing became the norm. Any chance for decent sounding Stereo was sometimes lost due to overdubbing. Advanced tape recorders, such as by Ampex, saved the (distorting) overdubbing days - audiophile LPs began to surface because of it.
Anyway, this is a live "Daydream" recording by (John Sebastian &) The Lovin' Spoonful, about December 1965. It's documented as a Demo, but studio talk mentions a Take #6. Either way, what you could achieve as a live recording!..
