Producing an album can sometimes be a very difficult job, with booking studios, Engineers, arrangers, string orchestras, vocalists, etc. & getting it all together, afterwards spending lengthy time mixing & mastering. This album (The first for Lisle) was a pleasure to produce. Over a year in the making is was decided to produce a sound as close to their live performance as possible without sacrificing quality of the recorded works. Many D.J.’s & promotion people have told us we were wrong by not using full back up orchestration & vocalists to “Sweeten” the sound but Lisle felt by doing this they would cheat their listeners by giving their sound but rather the sound of a group of studio musicians.
The songs selected are old favourites that the group includes in their stage presentation & it is hoped you the listener will enjoy the styling Lisle gives to each song, as much as we did recording it. Many times the control room staff were found clapping their hands, tapping their toes and more than once even dancing while the material was laid down.
We hope you feel the same way, so cue up your turntable, crank up your volume and smile with Lisle as we do.
