Sonic quality, live vs studio to there and back again.

Here is a thought I had a while ago. This idea definitely spawned because I spend so much time in both the Studio world and Live sound world. lets jump back to say 1970, albums like Simon and Garfunkel "Bridge over trouble water" and the first from Black Sabbath, Beatles broke up but released "Let it be"  there was also releases from Johnny Cash, The Guess Who, Humble Pie, Creedence Clear Water Revival and many more. Less then a year ago was Woodstock and later this year the Biggest ever Rock festival in History was going to happen in England "Isle of wight Festival" with 600,000 in attendance. Big time in music, later this year we would also lose Janis Joplin and Jimmy Hendrix.

Besides the music history lesson I want to compare the a few things, if you went to Woodstock and maybe some of you did :-) it would have not been that great of a sonic experience, I have seen the tech and seen what was being used, Bill Hanley did a great job with what they had and for its day it was a serious leap forward.... to be continued....
