"Veitnam Nights" The Making of 26th Edition

The 26th edition of the making of series is about the song which is coming out soon on Garageband Records as the S.O.A.z Feb. 2008 Flavor of the Month very soon. This song was made around the same time frame as "Bosses", "Verbs", "Damn Shame", "Cream Cheese" and others mentioned before in other Making Of Series posts....

November 2005 was the time frame. Before Greenguy's return to the Garageband BBS Rap Hip Hop Forum (a polar event) and after the Roland 880 EX had been sold and was no longer being used.

The studio equipment used in APG Studios to over-come the lack of the Track Machine (Roland 880 EX) was a very high quality mike filture, a good mike, and a very nice Mike Stand & Spit cover. The mike was lined onto the PC and the recording was done on the software known as ACID....

The method with the Roland 880 EX was similar but, Cakewalk was the software used to mix down and the Mike had no stand & no spit cover, They used a clean sock as a spit cover back then.

The mike & all that was upgraded to compisate for the lack of the track machine. The studio was no longer portable as it was with the 880 EX though....

Now, this song "Veitnam Nights" had an instramental that Big L used in the past, it was Omega Redd's collection of instramentals that inspired Common Ground to record this. It was Madden 2006 that inspired Va'Les to have Marty Booker's name in the Hook:

"You don't wanna end up droppin the ball like Marty Booker"

That was written By Va'Les although Kwin MD spoke the lyrics there...

The Miami Dolfins did just cut Marty Booker recently too.

That laugh from the 2nd Hook heading onto the 3rd verse was unrehersed. Va'Les was naturally laughing & got caught on record, Redd & Kwin laughed at how it sounded in the sound & they both insisted that Va'Les keep it in there as a addlib...

That's the fun we have when the Common Ground 3 records together....
