Sweet Baby James

• Sweet Baby James •

As the entire album was recorded at Sunset Sound Studio 1, there are many excellent chamber reverb examples throughout. Taylor’s lead vocal gets a tasty dose in this track. As is so common with a reverb chamber, the effect is not there to simulate a space, but to make the track sound larger, more interesting, more ear-grabbing. It’s more about timbre than space.
