Buying the albums sampled on “You Can All Join In”.
This time we finish looking at the (much shorter) notes in the CD insert from the other three chaps, with just Glenn to go now:
How well I remember, guitar case in hand, taking the tube to Sloane Square then the bus along King’s Road to Sound Techniques Studio for the first time. A building much taller than it was wide, it had been originally built as a granary and built of stone, perfect for recording acoustic music but hardly suited to electric guitar and drums with its cavernous reverberations! We were there to record our first real record with the £1.000 that Terry Ellis, our manager had borrowed from his bank to finance the entire project. We were introduced by Victor Gamm, the engineer, to the wonders of 4 track recording with Clive and I [sic] together on one track so that when we came to the mix it was a case of “Should we bring up the level of the bass and drums?” or can you take a little top of the bass and drums?” [sic] as though he and I were some conjoined musical creature. Amazing in these days of unlimited tracking to see how much we did manage to achieve with those 4 tracks and fortunately, how much we managed to learn from the experience.
Glenn Cornick ”. Glenn, by the way, sadly has since died.
One last pic from the CD packaging, being black and white photos of all the chaps still in their make-up from the cover shoot:
