Bad Production & Good


Shows how a mediocre song can be transformed into a great song with good production values.

The post below, Phil Ochs' "Crucifixion," sounds like crap on its recorded version because it's horribly over-produced. (I can't find a recorded version such as in the Youtube video - I guess it exists somewhere, but sure as hell not on iTunes.) It's a song crying for the Billy Bragg treatment, i.e., performance only with highly amplified, distorted, electric guitar.

What many Obama supporters worry about...
