    The guy that invented Multi-track and changed the world of recording forever. Man...Ampex (I'm pretty sure it was them) milked ol Les for every idea he had. Sure they built him tons of gear to put in his studio...But they went right out and patented all of his ideas and made bazillions. ( I think that's how the story went)

    Anyway...I'm truly thankful for the pioneers of our industry and respect their talents and opinions. I'm really kinda saddened that many of these legends are passing on.

    Back to the pic....I'd love to have been able to spend a day or two in that studio.

    Peace,

    James

    By the way, notice the speaker placement in the top photo.

    I caught that. Les was a true pioneer. I remember reading an interview that he was cutting stereo LP's before the majors were.

    He did alot for the industry.

    Peace,

    I think Protools sounds "warmer" just having these pictures on my computer. The mojo just drips off the screen.

    It looks a lot like Sun Studio in Memphis. Talk about stepping back in time. Linoleum floors, that choir room acoustic tile stuff on the walls, cables running all over the floor, no booths--that's where this all started. I wonder what we can learn from that?

    I particularly like the single micing drum technique. Even though it was mono it appears he believed in treating a kit as a signal instrument.

    Either that or he ran out of tracks.

    Great photos, thanks Lynn.

    Les is my friend Jim's uncle.

    He says the family gathering are a full blown jam session. Everyone plays!

    How fun.
