I listened to the other 2 records from '79 that were done at Variety Recording in NYC, "Sleeping Beauty" and "Strange Celestial Road". Again, there are a lot of similarities in the recording on all of these records (and they're all pretty great, to my ears), as far as the actual set up and balance goes, but there are differences too. These 2 have a different drummer, Eddie Thomas, so while all the panning and micing are the same, he plays a lot more gently, and on top of it he's mixed lower. And Sunny is playing electric piano on almost every cut, but its recorded the same, basically in mono. "God is More Than Love..."  still has the most intense mix of them all. There were other Arkestra albums that were recorded at Variety, I may pull them all out over the next few days. There are also NY albums done at Bob Blank's studio.

'78 and '79 are great years for Arkestra records, between the Italian recordings of '78 and all these NYC records of '79....ok continue into Detroit records of '80.....These were the years I first got to see the Arkestra play live (in Boston, with the OVC light show running as well) and I'm glad I was around at that time for such a great introduction to an incredible musical experience.

happy listening, ihor. Hope you slip in "Donovan's Greatest Hits" while you've got the hi-fi warmed up.

I’d like to add my thanks for the recent emails about the Trio
album – gonna be cranking up the turntable this weekend!

 

I’ve always (actually not always – it came as a surprise) understood
that Sleeping Beauty and Strange Celestial Road were cuts from one and the same
session – that has always underlined for me how much the sound on Sunny’s
albums is down to the production – cos they sound pretty different to me!
