What you see is not necessarily what you hear

In the new installment on his channel Drumtribe, Paicey talks about click tracks and the editing wizardry that goes into a studio recording.

    Sadly when you call an album bananas no one will take seriously.
    But the music will always cut through any album cover or album title.
    For me I loved that album and it has immense wealth of great material.
    And BTW I love the title and the album cover. Funny how they made two of the poorest people on earth become the front cover of great album.
    I realy wonder what are those two guys on the album cover doing now. Are still selling Bananas or they have been whooshed away from our planet. Its a funny world.

    Very interesting take from the musicians point of view! This also illustrates what makes a live performance so enthralling. When you strip away the creative veneer of work done in the studio, which in itself raises all sorts of audio possibilities, in a live setting you simply have the musicians combined interpretations of the tunes at that moment and this is what makes Purple such a great band. Knowing the tune inside out and realising just some of the variants and directions within that tune, both recorded and unrecorded, and being able to stretch out musically…..wonderful stuff! I saw Procol Harum a few years back from a front row seat and like Purple it was just such a privilege seeing these artists perform. Not from the ageist point of view but the fact that they are performing, creative artists in their natural habitat! By the way, despite my considerable age I’m new to this site, and just want to say a massive thank you to all who make it work so we can enjoy the posts and debate. Thank You!!

    Adel @2 and Gary @3,

    Great commentary….

    I actually love the Bananas album and the cover thereof. Rumor has it that those two guys were whooshed into space and landed on Mars. They apparently have a thriving banana custard pie business. The locals remain in Heaven, rather Space, with the pastry delights. Just sayin’…. ;>

    Peace,
    Ted

    Ted @4 sounds yummy.. I am off to Mars 😋
    Gary @3 that’s why some old vinyl records produced in the 70s sells for thousands of pounds. It capture the spirt of the band recording live without all that digital technology.
    I wonder how much an old 70s Made in Japan LP is selling for on ebay!?
    Peace and Love to Mankind
