The first waiting for her… CD was neon. It was recorded in late 1998 and early 1999. The drums were recorded onto a 4-track tape recorder in a house that the drummer and I were renting. Those tapes were then taken to my work (at radio station KKBQ-FM), dumped into a ProTools system, and then each of the instruments and vocals were recorded direct into ProTools.
The mixes were burned to a CD and taken to a Houston duplication company, where we got 100 copies made on CD-R, with black printing on the front of the CD. The cover was printed somewhere else and the dupe company packaged it all together for us.
The quality isn’t great, but I still think it sounds okay for a band that was only together for a few months. The only real issue is that the drum mix was stuck at how I dumped them into ProTools, so there are some bad level, especially the snare drum in places.
