Recording "live" with a band in a real studio

We recently recorded 3 songs in a great studio in Belmont, Ca. OTR is real. Two inch tape, no pro tools, no pitch correction, etc. I felt clean as I was laying down vocal tracks. The trio was ON and I loved the energy. I'm not here to knock new technology, nor do I want to bring negative vibes to any recording, but I have to say, the idea of recording raw sound became very comfortable. I forgot to think about post editing. I began to trust my abilities and relax. "Letting go" let everyone focus on the task at hand, and the task at hand became fun, creative and pure. Music is and should always be about sound. Anything else seems to be noise.
