    Hard choice for only one. I think it'd be Electric Ladyland.

    first song written and recorded with Brian Johnson in AC/DC, “You Shook Me All Night Long”. Not a bad start to a band...

    I'm terrible with superlatives but perhaps my choice would be Advision Studios, Fitzrovia, London, June 1972. The band YES occupied the studio with producer/engineer Eddie Offord to record their classic album, Close to the Edge.

    But perhaps it is better to not be there and witness "how the sausage is made," as they say.

    At least the session for Steve Howe's nine-note outro figure for Siberian Khatru would have been interesting. Offord sent his assistant out into the studio where he put the mic for Steve's Leslie on a long cord. He spun it around the studio over his head so you get up and down doppler and volume change. In the mix they panned it back and forth as well. For Steve's outro solo he asked Offord to give him a couple of bars and then pull the band out of his cans so he wouldn't be constrained by the tempo of the band. Fun stuff!

    I was in Olympic Studios for maybe ten minutes while Led Zeppelin were recording their first album. I had no idea who they were, but they sounded pretty exciting. My main memory is the sound level in the monitoring room. I'd swear the level at the desk was higher than at a Deep Purple concert.

    Let There Be Rock. The story goes that one of Angus' amps exploded and caught fire while he was playing that final title track solo and George nodded to him to keep playing and finish the song. I'm not surprised either, that solo sounds like pure fire

    I've worn out countless copies of this vinyl. Mike Bloomfield, Al Kooper and Bruce Langhorne make the whole thing a rock fest.
