Re: Jim on the radio
Jim would not have fared better at Decca, with Owen Bradley at the helm in Nashville and a quonset hut studio vastly inferior to RCA Studio B from a sonic, engineering and equipment standpoint! Owen also described himself as "musically ignorant" in a published interview, Decca was using an inferior tape for masters in those days, there was too much leakage into mics so the three tracks were not as clean as they should have been (due to poor isolation and the fact everybody was crammed in the studio like sardines), and Bradley admitted he only got Patsy on the right path when he started to pay attention to what Jim Reeves and Chet Atkins were doing at RCA.
