Blood sweat & tears are most 3rd or worse generation if you move back beyond 2000.
Pat Merrick quality is mediocre, overpriced, plus he as a person is f##kin useless.
Dana Smith is awesome hes a super nice guy plus all his stuff is 1 st gen going back to 1980 (!!)
Are there any other guys like Dana? IE guys with a catalogue who have been recording stuff themselves since way back...?
