Album 365: Day 167 - Ladder El - Ferris Wheel

Ladder El
Ferris Wheel

Favorite tracks: Genuine, 50/50, Mind Me
Sleeper tracks: Thinner, Fold

This was the first album I recorded at Winterland Studios.  The band was from (I think) Eau Claire and we did a couple weekends of tracking.  I really liked the vibe of the music.  The guitar player was pretty good and I remember he had a Howard Roberts guitar.  The singer reminded me of a white Tracy Chapman...if Tracy was a dude.

They recorded all the tracks in studio B.  Brian, Winterland's chief engineer, mixed in studio A.  I was amazed with how good he made the record sound.  The drums were pieces of crap and the room was small and boxy.  The album turned out really great.

  1. Tracy Chapman sounds like a dude. She always throws me off when I play Song Pop on the female singer catagory.
