Loaded in way more gear than we own (thanks, friends, for the loaners), set up a bajillion mics and started burnin' up tape today. So far so good! The word "THICK" comes to mind.. We're moving pretty fast - should have had 7 songs today, but the tape ran out about 3 seconds before the end of "Bad Places" and we decided to bag it for the night. So, 6 down, 11 to go!! Looking forward to tomorrow.
