I enjoyed the workshop in Chicago yesterday with Alan Parsons. It was a great experience for those in attendance recording a song with Chris Siebold. Alan has an illustrious career beginning with being involved with some of the later recordings by The Beatles, recording Dark Side of The Moon, and his own, ongoing work with the Alan Parsons Project.
His book and DVD set provide lots of information on recording.
