Limited online to only 20 copies on random-color* vinyl, this 7" 45rpm record is the result of a rare 'live to disc' recording by Jeremy Enigk and Tomo Nakayama. Comes with beautiful centerfold 'lathe' artwork and custom 45 adaptor.
*colors are completely random and specific colors may not be requested. Even though 'blue' is pictured, you will most likely not receive a blue record.
Live On Lacquer preserves music in a way that is timeless and genuine. Much like the way records were made in the mid-20th century, these songs are captured live and cut in real-time onto lacquer discs with our 1940’s Scully vinyl lathe. Once cut, the lacquer masters are immediately sent off for plating and pressing. Each song is recorded in one take with no editing, allowing for the truest expression of the artist's performance to be captured. The recording method used here is 100% analog and retains a level of humanity and imperfection often lost in modern digital productions.
The following equipment was used to make this record:
Microphones - Lawson 251, Neumann KSM 104, Royer 121, Coles 4038 (pair)
