First-Rate Sonics & Exceptional Arrangements of Classic Led Zeppelin tunes!
Don’t you wish all rock albums sounded this good!!!
Vanessa Fernandez covers Led Zeppelin tunes in “unplugged” acoustic arrangements.
“The result is a spectacularly natural and ultra-dynamic drum sound similar to what Glyn Johns achieved on the latest Eric Clapton album.
Tim Pierce’s guitars are equally well-served in a recording by Michael C. Ross that’s nothing short of stupendously transparent, dynamic and natural… I’ll put it to you this way: if you play this record really loud and you don’t enjoy what you hear, blame your system!”
– Michael Fremer: 9/11 Music, 11/11 Sound
Engineered by Michael C. Ross, mixing of the all analogue album, “When the Levee Breaks” by Vanessa Fernandez, was completed at United Recordings (formerly known as Oceanway Recordings).
The mixing was done in the legendary studio A with it’s great sounding custom built mixing board.
The album was mixed down to 1/4 inch 30 ips tape and delivered to Bernie Grundman Mastering where the mastering and lacquer cutting was done.
All the above elements combined to create memorable and immensely satisfying versions of several well known Led Zeppelin songs and the results are in an album of epic musical and spectacular sonic quality!!!
