This is IPI’s first pure Chicago Blues release, a wonderful performance of down-home blues. And to add to the excitement this will be the first in a series of tapes that are recorded multi-track but mixed down to a two-track master right in the session, creating a two-track master on the fly in real-time. That is, the music is being mixed down to two tracks as the musicians are playing in the studio. No post-session EQ, compression, mixing, etc. The result is fresh spontaneous sound done in a wonderful studio atmosphere. The name “High Cross Sound” will denote this in the future, recorded by engineer Anthony Gravino of High Cross Sound. But without the wonderful musicians and their authentic blues performance it would mean nothing. In this case, both the sound and performance came together to produce an electric result.
