Thanks Rob for sharing this. I didn't know that Kazdin was among the
consumers of 1950s hi-fi and the radio row aesthetic. I guess it was
inevitable that multi-miking of classical recordings would eventually
supplant the traditional one mike technique, but certainly he was not the
first to do it. And I feel that there can be overkill in the latter
approach that is not germane to the former. Thoughts?
