Clark's bio is enlightening - he grew up in Memphis listening to Sun 45s, Southern soul music, The Beatles and The Kinks. He played in bands and hung around the legendary Ardent studio in his hometown. As he puts it, he "kind of fell into writing in the '80s", however he quickly chalked up articles in numerous top publications like Rolling Stone, Billboard and, crucially, Mix Magazine. This led to him interviewing many people involved in recording - not just producers and engineers but also the musicians themselves. He had the foresight to transcribe the entire interviews and thus has amassed a goldmine of insights into the minds of these experts.
The book is divided into chapters such as "Bass", "Guitar", "Vocals", "Mixing" etc but also has more reflective chapters such as "Creative Production and Recording" and "Production Philosophy". Each chapter features extensive interviews with experts in the field, and every interview is densely packed with insight.
There's a short bio for each of the hundred or so interviewees listening their experience and who they've worked with. They include legendary producers such as Tony Visconti, Roy Thomas Baker and Jim Dickinson, and notable musicians such as Jerry Douglas, Leland Sklar and Wayne Jackson. Also contributing are many engineers and other technical experts who may not be household names but have been present at the birth of many great recordings.
There are countless pithy epigrams scattered throughout this volume, but I'll choose a representative one from producer Norbert Putnam, who played bass on many Elvis Presley sessions: "When you have a purveyor of emotion, like Al Green or Elvis Presley, then you have magic. That is the beginning and the end of it. It is never the equipment. It is not the SSL, Neve, Mackie or Trident console. It is not the snare drum or the reverb... It really is the artist."
