We tried something new on this recording. Terry Furlong ran an extension from inside the center of the machine and dropped it over the edge so I would have power while it was turning. I set up my "Studio" in one of the Chariots, and placed two microphones on either side of the head of an outside row horse. Merrick Price would start the Carousel, Allan Mueler manned the organ, and I rode the Carousel for the whole time. The effect we achieved makes you feel as if you are rideing on the Carousel, especially if you wear headphones or play this CD on a 5.1 Surround Sound System. The Merry Go Round stops with the microphones close to the band Organ. After a short pause (to take on riders) you can hear Merrick ring the bell and we are off for another ride. We actually recorded a half hour of music this way. I was fine until I got off at the end, and then I was so dizzy I couldn't stand. Of course Merrick thought this was quite funny.
Note: This music sounds best using head phones.
