Houston-based rock trio Bo Jones (www.bojones.net) shacked up at that city's SugarHill Recording Studios to finish their full-length debut, which was tracked and mixed by SugarHill's junior engineer, Leigh Crain. Crain recorded the 10-song album to 2-inch analog in Studio B, and later transferred tracks Pro Tools for editing and mixing. Guitarist Nick Greer notes how their sound has matured since recording their three-song demo in October 2003. “This time, we laid down two to three guitars using Marshall amps and tried out different miking techniques. We also used the ebow a lot more, and included a string and organ section.”
