Les Paul and Mary Ford: Track by Track

I’m gonna end this Les Paul Tribute off with with a video that is both entertaining and a peak into how Les really recorded their music.

Now, this was before the mulit-track tape invention so, this is considered Sound on Sound.

While watching this, realize that the audience back then had no idea what Les was doing or how. Pretty much Alaister Cooke is referencing the fact that people were indeed wondering if Les and Mary were doing some kind of electronic trickery….

The answer really was no, as the recording process was even more difficult with the two tape machines. But think of this… if you went into a recording studio back then, the only way you would get a full band sound it to bring in a full band.  This was new ground for sure.

Thanks to Fred Robbins for the share of this video!
