Back in 1976

In 1976,I owned a studio in Indiana which by 1979 had become Intermedia Broadcast and Filmsound,with partners Don Morrell and Mark McClain.In 76 I also started to travel in Latin America.In 1978 I went to Mexico City to visit my brother Pete(who was an exchange student at La Universidad IberoAmericana),but also to visit El Centro de Crabacion,a new complex of three round recording studios in Mexico City that I had read about inREcording Engineer/Producer Magazine.The director was Jose Antonio Zavala(of The Hermanos Zavala-who were for decades The national Ambassadors of Mexican music to the world-traveling to China and all points on the globe from the 1950s forward).Jose Antonio recieved me warmly that summer day,and gave me a private tour of the complex.Then,he turned me over to Mexico's all-time most famous recording engineer, Antonio"Tony"Carbajal.Tony had recorded virtually everyone who was anyone in Mexico over a span of about 50 years when he died in the 90s.At any rate,Tony and me spent literally that whole afternoon together.He told me how he had recorded Rod Stewart there just a few weeks before,and Jose Feliciano just days prior.He hauled out a stack of 2" tapes and played his ongoing productions-one after another-on the big 3M 24 track with the huge tape looping across the weird "front-mounted"heads.It was an incredible day I will never forget.Tony was also an actor(ie the TeleNovela"Vanessa" with actress Lucia Mendez,who I later worked with live in concert),and worked in a slew of TeleNovelas and movies and TV soundtracks..Lucia Mendez' tour promoter at that time was Mario Villacorta,a friend from El Salvador.RIP the legendary Tony Carbajal.Sound engineer for the ages!
