This music was recorded digitally on January 24, 25, and 26, 2008, but then mixed to nice fat juicy one-inch analog tape over the next four days at Ocean Studios, Burbank, CA, where Saint was assisted by ALBERT MATA. Straightaway, the righteously mad master of mastering, JOE GASTWIRT, took things into his own hands on Rhapsody Drive.
The complete and full realization of DIRTY BABY, stuffed with gloriously generous reproductions of Ed's 66 pics and enough ghazals (both printed and recorded) to gas a Phillips station, if not a Standard, and including tragically hilarious guest appearances by Nels as Saddam Hussein and Jean-Bertrand Aristide, is available at surviving bookstores, museum shoppes, and the usual online purveyors, from DelMonico Books-Prestel (prestel.com) and sports this ISBN: 978-3-7913-5083-7.
