I'm a big fan of HM Steve sharing his knowledge of recording with us. I've spent equal time on both sides of the glass, but was always preoccupied with bugging the engineer and asking questions.

What are some of your favorite albums, production-wise?

Shudder to Think - Pony Express Record
Slint - Spiderland
Shellac - At Action Park
Labradford - E Luxo so
Turing Machine - A New Machine for Living

(besides obvious choices: Darkside of the Moon, White album, Aja, etc)

Thank you BassDblr, great idea. I'll have to think about that for a while.
It did make me remember a good old friend called Ed Buller, a Brit who recorded and worked with Suede in the UK, who would always carry around "Black Hole Sun" as his reference. If he heard it in any studio, he would know the room better because he knew the song so well.
And that was the first song that popped into my head. I got a ride from my daughter last week and we heard it on the radio, and it still killed me!
Like I said, let me ponder this for a while and get back to you. S

I do the same thing with two albums: Marvin Gaye's "What's Going On?" and James Brown's "Live at the Apollo, 1968". I've listened to them so many times on so many different types of speakers and headphones, that I use them as references when buying monitors or cans for location recording.

As for favourite production albums, other than those two already mentioned, I'd say Sly Stone's "A Whole New Thing", "What's The Story, Morning Glory?" by Oasis, and Nirvana's "In Utero" all had really great production. I really like the rawness of Miles Davis' "A Tribute to Jack Johnson" too. Very cool-sounding album, imo.

Thriller is another one for the 'obvious' list.

If you like In Utero, you should defo check out Shellac's At Action Park - both recorded by Steve Albini at Electrical Audio in Chicago (its a great room - I've only ever been in B, but these were done in A - also, Steve is the guitarist for Shellac).

Also - does everybody subscribe to TapeOP? You should, its my favourite mag... and free.
