Billy Talbot Band
Rock and Pop
Tony Brooke's Role: 
Audio Recording Engineer

In May of 2000, Tony Brooke and the Billy Talbot Band set up in a barn in Mendocino to record the studio album "Alive In The Spirit World." Billy is also known for being a member of Crazy Horse, the raw band whose members also include a guy named Neil Young. For this project Billy wanted to recreate the feeling of a live show, so the band played with full stage monitors at their feet. The resultant sound was the best of both worlds: raw live energy with studio quality audio. These videos show the setup in the barn:
