Oscar Herrera in the studio, 1998

Summer 1998. Oscar Herrera records with Sam at Natural Sound Studios in Miami. In the video (at YouTube) we work on two tracks from Black Tape For A Blue Girl’s As one aflame laid bare by desire: “Tell me you’ve taken another” and “Russia.”

For the last 25 years you’ve listened to Oscar’s amazing finished vocal performances on these tracks. Now watch as these 20 minutes take you behind-the-scenes into the studio to experience the process of recording: from Oscar singing in the vocal booth to the decisions we made in the control room. You witness the technique of putting together the final multi-track vocals on these songs.

Oscar commented, upon seeing the footage for the first time last week, “Nice to see this. No one really understands how long and arduous the recording process can be until they see something like this.”
