Some clips of Butch Vig talking about the recording of Nevermind:



In Bloom

Smells Like Teen Spirit

Polly

Drain You

If this was posted already, sorry. I couldn't find it when searching.

If not, enjoy!

Oh man, that album is nuts. There's triggered (synth) kick drums and everything. I never understood why Kurt was "embarassed" by it until we dissected the master tapes in a mixing class (for parts of SLTS, they came with a book) I was taking and realized it actually was "more like a Motley Crue session" (as kurt put it).

Yh its actually a pretty cool job, I admit the drums sound a little dated but they got a pretty live sounding album compared to all the equally over produced crap.

Nevermind, as iconic as it is/was, was insanely over-produced. We're talkin' over-production levels of the "Phil-Collins-would-be-proud" nature.

But heck, I still love cranking it up...but I'll never be able to re-produce the sound of Kurt's Jaguar overdubbed ad infinitum.

I never figured Butch used so many guitar tracks on some songs. Sounds pretty swanky I reckon.
