So, anyway, the whole vinyl thing. I don't know if I'd say it's better or worse than vinyl. It's just....groovier. Maybe there is some unfounded level of connection that happens when music travels the purely analog journey from musician to recorded media to stereo to your ears without the mathematical process of conversion to digital. I wonder if there was ever a vinyl printing of Mark Mothersbaugh's Music for Insominacs, which was a totally computer-programmed, digitally recorded, cd release. That would be interesting.
I'm on a roll

I've got to agree (1" reel-to-reel, 16-track), but they probably would've scrapped together as much money as possible and gone into a studio, so 32 track is not out of the question. From 1984-86 I worked as a writer for a number of heavy metal magazines so I was exposed to many of these types of bands and the way they operated. I wasn't into heavy metal, but I did get to tour with many of the big bands at the time (Iron Maiden, Dio, Ozzy, etc.). It's a long story. Those bands hit it big more in the mid-80s than the early 80s but I don't know if that has any bearing on the crux of your story.
