I Left My Heart in San Francisco

• I Left My Heart in San Francisco •

This track was recorded at Columbia’s 30th Street Studio, a large worship space converted into a recording studio, rich with live ambience and two chambers in the basement. It was mixed, however, at Columbia Studio A on 7th Avenue. So the ample dose of chamber reverb — mono in this mix — on Tony’s vocal comes from the stairwell chamber of Columbia Studios on 7th Ave.
