About: 12-12-12 (The Concert for Sandy Relief)

As most of you know (recent history), NY & NJ were battered by a horrible hurricane (named "Sandy") and a whole bunch of musicians donated their time to do this great concert to raise $$$ for "hurricane relief".

As to nobody's surprise, The Who put on the best show of the performers who played...

This CD (and future DVD) is also to help raise funds...

The Who set list was comprised of:

Who Are You
Bell Boy
Pinball Wizard
See Me Feel Me
Baba O'Riley
Love Reign O'er Me
Tea And Theatre

But on this CD, they only included:


Who Are You
Baba O'Riley
Love Reign O'er Me

I was disappointed "Bell Boy" didn't make it. It was "thematically" correct for the event and a great performance - but for those fans of CSI... :)

I always find "the mix" fascinating. You've heard me complain about Bobby Pridden's "bad" mixes and Andy Macpherson's "great" mixes and sometimes mixes that "don't make any sense to me" (which could have a complicated background, etc...)

But what is actually fairly interesting is what happens when a "non-Who camp" person mixes a Who performance? What do they do differently to "capture" The Who live sound (or not)?

"12-12-12" was very well recorded, with the exceptions of THE DRUMS. What is it about drums that either folks just can't record properly or that they can't mix properly?

This should be EASY to figure out. You have microphones (old technology) and drums (even older technology). Why are so many drum performances recorded and/or mixed TERRIBLE?

Remember some of the early 60's Who recordings where Keith Moon make sounds like someone is spanking his behind?

OK, that's my point. Why make a drum sound any different than a drum? Or why not record 100% of the drum sound vs. just the top of the snare?

On The "12-12-12" CD, we have that going on.

The guitar/bass/synthesizers/keyboards/whatever all sound GREAT. You have a sense of a "concert hall" (or MSG in this case) - very well recorded and nicely mixed.

But, where as they could have moved the vocals a bit higher in the mix (they don't sound buried, but they also are lower in volume than what was actually coming out of the PA Speakers at MSG).

The drum sound is just awful. The drums at MSG were loud and clear. What we have here is a "toy" drum kit that's sort of there. Everything else is recorded with excellence - great sounding recording, Roger a bit too low in the mix and crappy drums (recorded that way or mixed that way - take your pick).

Sad.

Just to see if they did this only to Zak, I checked out Billy Joel (who followed The Who on the CD). As some of you *might* know, Billy Joel's
The Stranger was the first LP I ever bought! I LOVED Billy Joel before I discovered The Who (and then of course Billy went too commercial for my tastes).

Anyway, the drums for Billy Joel didn't sound any better. The recording? Maybe? The Mix? Maybe? Why? Who knows...

Great 3 Who song CD otherwise...
