Spinal Tap A to Zed

Burnett, T-Bone: Producer of remix of "Rainy Day Sun" on 1992 album, "Break Like the Wind." David: "He’s an American and very tall—the tallest producer we hired. He came in and, with the very fine brush of an artist, he broke down the original [1967] recording." Derek: "He digitally reduced the four-track to two-track and then bounced back to three-track to get the center back." Nigel: "Then he electronically rechanneled it to simulate stereo." David: "By that time, we would have hired him to do a whole lot more, but we ran out of money." (BB)
