Yeah, I like it cooked a certain way works for me too. I love old signal chains on voices too (I read an article by the recording engineer for Adele* in response to Tony Visconti alleging she was autotuned in which he described the entire signal chain which went so far as to use an actual echo chamber!). I knew someone who was adamant that, not vinyl, not 78s through those ear trumpet sound directors (knew someone who believed that) but wax cylinders were the only, one, and true accurate reproduction of the voice. Yeah, whatever.
- I think it was that song that I’d walk into a shop and delightedly think for a second it was Merry Clayton singing gimme shelter. Which is awesome. Her solo version that is. She obviously sang the original too.
