The last time vinyl records saw the kinds of numbers they’ve been selling lately, U2’s Rattle And Hum was topping the charts. Last year, the RIAA reported that at $416 million, vinyl sales had reached levels that hadn’t been seen since 1988.
Back then, albums were recorded and mixed to analog tape – a recording format that has achieved mythical status. Producer/engineer LENISE BENT is one of the first women recording engineers and has worked on many iconic records including “Aja” by Steely Dan, “Breakfast in America” by Supertramp and “Tusk” by Fleetwood Mac. She was also the first woman to receive a platinum album for engineering on Blondie’s AutoAmerican. Lenise has seen the evolution of recording techniques and will be sharing her knowledge and experience with us.
