Theme From Arena ambience

Work on FL LP4 continues.  We're using an old Vantage, single-cone solid state bass amp for the guitar ambiences on Theme From Arena.  The presence and treble are turned right down, the mid and bass boosted, with a careful pickup selection on Brian's Jaguar ensuring the warmest, cashmere tone possible.

Soon it'll be time to start putting the lead parts through the front porch (last used as an echo chamber for the percussion on this track), and transferring certain drum parts onto 1/4" tape for maximum analogue saturation.
