hey folks. any alice in chains fans here? if so, can you tell me why i greatly prefer the sound and mix of the self titled album to either facelift or dirt? i have some ideas im pretty sure about (the insufferable drum reverb being the most obvious) but im interested in the insight of others with more experience. obviously my taste is subjective, but can someone tell me some of the key differences? ...

LIVE from the Midnight Circus Talks with Chris Beard!

May 26, 2015, 2:00pm - May 26, 2015, 4:00pm


When you grow up in a house filled with the blues, when your father grew up on Beale Street, when music was in your DNA, then blues is who you are and what you do. Chris Beard is a modern blues guitarist and singer like few others. His personal connections to the blues were forged with the living blues men he’s sat with since childhood. Born in 1957, Beard is the son of Joe Beard, a fine blues guitarist who grew up on Beale Street in the 1950’s before moving to Rochester, NY. When family friends like Matt “Guitar” Murphy and Buddy Guy stopped by, young Chris became their willing pupil. After years playing the clubs in and around Rochester, Chris was offered the opportunity to record. In 1998, he released his debut recording, Barwalkin’, on JSP Records. That record earned Beard a W.C. Handy nomination as Best New Blues Artist. Chris produced his follow-up disc, Born To Play The Blues in 2001 to the critical acclaim of the blues press and earned Beard the title, Prince of the Blues. Then, in 2005, Beard released Live Wire, a stirring combination of live and studio performances for Northern Blues “Blues is my roots,” says Chris. “I grew up as Joe Beard’s son in the house of ChrisBeardthe blues. I grew up around Buddy Guy and Matt Murphy. The influence of Buddy has been major. All he has to say to me is ‘Keep on doing what you’re doing.’ Matt always told me that the guitar has to become an extension of you. That will always stick with me.” But on this new record, Beard, a world class guitarist, devoted time and energy into establishing his unique and compelling voice. With the combination of Beard’s assertive voice and his exciting guitar, this record is a seamless combination of traditional blues with a contemporary edge.

The Word

  • The Daily Adventures of Mixerman - Anybody who has ever spent time in a recording studio should read this. And those that haven’t spent time in a recording studio should read it just to get a taste of what they DON’T miss. As a musician and engineer/producer, some of the accounts in the book had me ROFL while other stories just ring VERY true.

    Andreas Gisler
  • Zen and the Art of Mixing - "Finally, a book that teaches the Art of great mixing, not the pseudoscience. At long f*#@ing last."

    Ken Scott - (The Beatles, Pink Floyd, David Bowie, Elton John)
  • Zen and the Art of Mixing - "Dough head. You gave away the farm."

    Aardvark, cohost of The Mixerman Radio Show. (Alan Parsons, Johnny Reed)
  • Zen and the Art of Producing - "Mixerman is a fearless, erudite and witty writer and thinker. Buy this book. Buy all of Eric Sarafin's books. NOW." 

    Dave Pensado (Christina Aguillera, Beyoncé, Pink)
  • Zen and the Art of Producing - "Informative and entertaining, this is a book that any 'wannabe producers' (and several established producers) should keep in their racks to constantly use as a reference."

    Ron Saint Germain (Jimi Hendrix, Mick Jagger, Living Colour)
  • Zen and the Art of Recording - "Zen and the Art of Recording describes an approach rather than a recipe. This is important because in the real world nothing works the same way every time. This is an excellent overview of the issues to be considered along with a broad variety of proven techniques for addressing them."

    Bob Olhsson (Stevie Wonder, Jackson Five, Marvin Gaye)
