Rockpile - Born Fighters

Found this gem on YouTube uploaded by BILL5th it's a 1979 BBC(?) documentary featuring Dave Edmunds & Nick Lowe of Rockpile in the recording studio at the height of Lowe's production career.

30 years on it seems a bit quaint, recording on tape, recording tricks instead of effects etc but it's interesting to see Lowe's take on production - which pretty much revolves around how it would sound on radio (no internet then ;-) .. and also for Edmunds revealing anecdote on how Phil Spector got his wall of sound just using three tracks!

Enjoy!
