"It was recorded live, but not broadcast live. I multi-tracked to an 8 -track Otari mx5050 tape machine and mixed it at a later time. The main thing to take away from this is there is no artificial reverb on these tracks. That’s just what that surprisingly small 15x15 room with tile walls sounded like; essentially a chamber reverb. Jim liked reverb so much during this time that he loved being right in the middle of it, playing around with its natural decay. Notes are made a little more percussive so he could enjoy the wash of reverb bathing him, almost like a conversation with a room. This recording will stand out in my mind as one of the most special moments I’ve been involved in. I still own the cheap acoustic guitar he played for this session and will cherish it forever. A few years after this recording, the KVRX building was torn down so this is one of the few documents of what this special room sounded like. I still want to build a chamber reverb with these dimensions and materials some day."
