Also from the back cover: Vincent Marino, drummer, used only the standard set of percussion instruments. No sound gimmicks were used, other than added reverberation and echo chamber as commonly employed in recording studios to get a live sound. All the special effect sounds were actually produced on the console by Cliff Duphiney. A good microphone pickup was or paramount importance to get these sounds on the track – in the grooves. Bruce Sweden, top-flight and highly desired recording engineer was at the controls in the engineer's booth at Universal recording studio in Chicago. Bernie Clapper, Chief Consulting Engineer.
