VA - See You In Your Dreams! The Dynamic Sound Of Eddie Kramer 1968-1979

Well, here is a mixtape I made with music produced by maestro Eddie Kramer 1968-1979. I deceided to only include songs where he was mentioned as a producer, I know he made a lot of classic recordings at the same time as an enginer only. but I did not include any of them, cause I think Kramer was an extraordinary producer with a smart and unique rock sound way back in the 70s. He produced many LP's by Kiss, and in my opinion he produced their best albums (except from Paul Stanley's 1978 solo album, wich is the best Kiss album I think, both in the way it sounds and for the songs). I believe the first album he produced was the self titled LP by the psychedelic hippie-rockers Graffiti in 1968. Personally I think Mott's (Mott The Hoople) excluded and hated album Shouting And Pointing from 1976 is a hell of a good rock/heavy album, far better than many of their earlier stuff (esp their earliest recordings). It's also pretty funny he produced Twisted Sisters first, and self released single from 1979, Kramer's versions are sadly replaced (or crappy remixed) on their debut album that was released the year after.
