CHRIS LORD-ALGE....

BACK IN THE MIX WITH STEVIE NICKS....
It was announced today (November 1st) that Dave Stewart was meeting up with Chris Lord-Alge for the first day of mixing Stevie's new album. Chris has a long history with Stevie stretching back to 1991's "Timespace". She seems to prefer him over other mixers... which was well documented in the "Destiny Rules" documentary during the recording of Fleetwood Mac's 2003 "Say You Will" album. Chris mixed Stevie's last album "Trouble in Shangri-La in 2001 and did some work on "Say You Will".

It appears things are moving along quite nicely on this album... Won't be long now!


"Chris Lord-Alge has an uncanny knack for making rock tracks both hard-hitting and hit-parade-friendly. The triple Grammy-winning mixer has become a genuine legend of the studio industry, to the extent that Allmusic.com needs eight pages to list his 750-plus credits. The first are from his early days as an assistant engineer at H&L Studios in New Jersey. This was followed by a stint as staff engineer at Unique Recording in New York. Lord-Alge moved to Los Angeles in 1988, and in subsequent years he added names such as Prince, Tina Turner, Stevie Nicks, Joe Cocker and Peter Frampton to his résumé.

In Lord-Alge's early days his activities also included engineering, keyboards, programming and producing. But since the late 1990s he's focused exclusively on mixing. The list of those who have benefited from the Chris Lord-Alge mix treatment is inordinately long, but to name just a few: U2, Snow Patrol, Sheryl Crow, Dave Matthews Band, Savage Garden, Green Day, Placebo, Alanis Morissette, Bon Jovi, Faith Hill, Melissa Etheridge, the Futureheads, Fleetwood Mac, Pink, Foo Fighters, Black Eyed Peas, Courtney Love, Heather Nova and Santana."

He did some fantastic work on Timespace, but gah, TISL had some major mixing problems...

Still, if it's being mixed, it's done. Holy crap!

Robert: what were the mixing issues on TISL? Just curious if it's anything very noticeable to the average listener.

Hmmm... With the previous success of the Planets of the Universe dance club promo remixes (#1 on Billboard Dance Charts I believe?), not to mention DJ Tracy Young's (amongst others) Stand Back & Deep Dish's Dreams, maybe we'll see some new professional Stevie promo club remixes soon??? I wish DJ Tracy Young's remix of Edge of Seventeen would officially be released... Love me some Stevie on the dance floor!!!! ;)
