Eleanor McEvoy – Forgotten Dreams
Many audiophiles all over the world are familiar with Eleanor McEvoy.
There is no finer musician with which to work.
Eleanor is accompanied by a grand piano and plays several solo instruments herself,
underscoring her beautiful voice, for this direct cut album.
When the opportunity came to work with Eleanor, as you can imagine, Chasing The Dragon jumped at it.
It was decided that it would be great to record a ‘Direct Cut’ album.
They have already released 5 albums using this process, where they record straight to the Neumann Lathe at Air Studios.
Eleanor put in a fantastic performance and, remember you cannot stop half way through when cutting live vinyl.
She had to be note perfect on both sides. Jake, the mixer, and John, mastering engineer, also brought their ‘A game” to the session.
