I love reading about the greats with their own methods of madness with miking/ production etc. These are great encyclopaedias on music!
I was looking to this book to provide ideas/new methodologies...which is what I got from volume 1. In spades.
I read Volume 1 with a pen in my hand to underline/mark all the things that I might consider or recording/mixing "tips". When I was done the book had a -lot- of things underlined/noted.
Hardly happened at all with volume two...with the exception of the Clarke Scheicher interview.
It was well written, but after the 6th engineer/mixer is asked, "How do you feel about digital vs. analog?" the responses begin to sound pretty similar.
If you're not interested in "tips and tricks", then you may enjoy this more than I did.
