I realize that it's a bit gauche to come out and ask for favors in my first post, but I can't think of a better place to drop this request. So I've been assigned to write a paper about 60s-70s multitrack recording that focuses on a particular work and the possible issues that might come up with regard to properly preserving this work. I've of course picked RAW POWER as the main character, so to speak, owing to the various incidents of production tomfoolery which have given fans such headaches over the years (and, of course, because I love it).
So, my humble request: can anyone point me to any sources - print, liner notes, onlines, whatever, as long as it's reasonably credible - which give any detail about the recording, mixing and mastering process? I took a quick trip through the archives of the forum to see if this had been brought up previously, but if so, I missed it; there's obviously a lot of interesting material here about the different versions, but most of that seems to be based on walking backwards from whatever version is under review (also, frankly, it's hard to put all of the insight found on this forum into one coherant piece; I'd be eternally grateful if someone could spell it all out for me). The more technical the info, the better - what kind of tape did they use? What did the board look like? Etc.
Thanks in advance, and I promise that future posts won't be so goldbrick-y.
