Why is it that the music Burt Bacharach produced sounds so real? What part of the recording and mastering process was it? Was it his miking techniques that accounts for this? The transient clarity still amazes me considering the point in time that it was recorded. The decay in the percussion and instrumentals sound so precise and so close. Breaths can be heard in the vocals of so many of the artists he recorded with. From Dionne Warwick to the Carpenters the sound was a step above many recordings for it's time. I wonder how Led Zeppelin may have sound if Burt Bacharach had been involved.
