Thread: Best drum recordings?

  1. #126
    I really think that Joe Jacksons drums on all his albums were particularly well recorded. Not sure if that's worth a mention, but the drum sounds on Laughter and Lust really blew me away, then I listened to Other Joe Jackson albums and became very impressed by the quality of the drums. Jump 'n' Jive has excellent jazz oriented sounds, while almost all his albums seem to be meticulously recorded. You know that those are real drums being played when you hear them.
    I got nothin'

    ...avoiding any implication that I have ever entertained a cognizant thought.

    Probably not the OP (or anyone else) is looking for, but I love the drum sound on the second Kiss album, Hotter Than Hell. Yeah, I know, it sounds "terrible", but it's the perfect antidote for all those excessively process drum sounds we've heard since the early 80's. There's just something about the way the drums sound on Got To Choose that I can't get enough. Wouldn't be the perfect production style for all music, but for this band, and this record, it works. All those "lo-fi" people have been trying to recreate the sound of Hotter Than Hell for the last 25 years.

    I love Joe and his band. To see Doug Yowell and company really show their stuff, you could check out this fantastic concert.

    Nobody ever jokes about men wearing make up and platform shoes.

    Maybe because it was the formative record in my musical arc but I find Bruford's drum sound on Fragile to be absolute perfection...

    McDonald & Giles, particularly his snare
    Bobby Caldwell (Captain Beyond)
    Guy Evans, particularly his toms

    Pretty much any recorded drums engineered by Walter Quintus on the CMP label.

    Something that made me fall in love with other forms of percussion instruments was "Shakti with John McLaughlin - A Handful of Beauty." I had never heard a Tabla, Ghatam, or a Mridangam before listening to this album.

    I'm one of those who likes what Dennis MacKay did with drum sounds. Lenny White - Venusian Summer, Brand X - Unorthodox Behavior, Gong - Gazeuse!, and Al Di Meola - Electric Rendezvous are solid examples.
