PRODUCED BY Ian Anderson
Recording engineers: Ian Anderson, Andy Williamson,
James Duncan, Mike Downs, except:
Ian Anderson's Sankyo and Powell flutes were supplied by All Flutes Plus, London. The bamboo flutes were made by Patrick Olwell of VA, USA. Ian's cute little acoustic guitar was built by luthier Andrew Manson of Devon, England. It is strung with D'Addario strings. Vocal and other microphones, in-ear monitors and radio gear were by - you guessed it - Shure Bros. (the Harley Davidson of Microphony!).
Martin Barre plays expensive guitars by Fender through even more expensive Soldano Amplification and very reasonably priced, very old, Marshall Speakers. He uses GHS strings, possibly because it's easier to say than D'Addario.
Doane Perry plays Premier Drums, Paiste cymbals, with Promark sticks, beating the shit out of Remo drum heads, wreaking havoc with his DW pedals, pounding the daylights out of Latin Percussion and RythmTech accessories and packs them all away in HardCase drum cases.
Andrew Giddings gently massages Roland Keyboards, Hammond Organ Module, and a Hohner (squeezy thing) Accordion, delivered to the outside world through a Mackie mixer.
Jonathan Noyce plays Fender basses through SWR amps. His strings are D'Addario, but not because GHS wouldn't give him any.
The audio tracks were recorded and mixed with the Mackie HDR digital 24 track and the Mackie digital mixer, the D8B.
