Kim: Some people don’t like that musicians are making records in their own houses now. But if you do it right, it's the best place to make a record, because the atmosphere is so relaxed. It does not always have to be in an official studio. Think back to Joe Bahari (one of the founders of Modern Records) and Ike Turner riding in a car with a tape machine all over the south to find promising new musicians. (Modern released recordings by BB King, Elmore James, John Lee Hooker, etc., 1945 - 1967) Years ago, I talked with Joe Bahari. He told me he would cut nine #1 songs in one day… at the YMCA in Memphis. You could still hear the cars driving by.
Rusty Zinn and Paul Oscher’s first albums were recorded in somebody’s lounge rooms and they are CLASSICS!
