I just want to bring up something that Clark wrote about in his book and
might have gotten lost in this discussion -- sometimes the polarity of
the mics get mixed, especially in overdubs. Clark discussed the
quandary of a recording where the band is one polarity and the singer is
the opposite. Which way do you want to listen to it??!! (As I've said,
I don't consciously notice the difference, so that's one less thing for
me to worry about! :-)
