MUSIC TO MY EARS

 

 

CD Soundtrack Recording

18 different songs -- 27 different tracks!

Over an hour of great music!

 

  * Asterisk denotes songs recorded live while scenes were shot

** Double asterisk denotes songs with vocals recorded live while scenes were shot, but prerecorded musical accompaniment

 

All other songs were recorded in studio settings, usually the accompaniment first, with various takes of individual vocals recorded later (also in studio settings) to playback of the accompaniment. The only exceptions were the "music box"/vocal and guitar/vocals on the versions of You Made Me Love You used for the dream sequence, which were all recorded simultaneously.

 

All songs recorded on a Marantz PMD-670 digital recorder, summer 2005, except three revised vocals recorded January 2006 (and, of course, the three "bonus tracks" of original acoustic recordings made at the time the songs were first published in the 1910s).
