Your Four Day Getaway With Tony Visconti, Al Schmitt, Elliot Scheiner and Bill Szymczyk!

Sorry, this is not a giveaway contest. However, if you have sufficiently deep pockets ($3499 if you sign up now, $3999 after August 1st) you can spend a four day, extended weekend, Thursday, November 6th through Sunday November 9th, 2014 with four of the greatest producer/engineers of our time (or any time) at the Power Station/New England Studios in Waterford, CT.

The event is a Special Edition Music Producer Fantasy Camp produced by David Fishof's Rock n Roll Fantasy Camp in association with Joe D'Ambrosio Management. Mr. D'Ambrosio's firm manages, among others, the careers of recording and mastering engineers and producers.

According to the press release:

"Throughout the weekend, campers will enjoy a once in a lifetime opportunity to hear behind-the-scenes stories about the making-of classic albums by The Who, Steely Dan, Eric Clapton, The Eagles, Joe Walsh, David Bowie, Beck, T. Rex, Paul McCartney, Foo Fighters, J. Geils Band, Elvis Presley, Madonna and many more.

Each iconic producer will spend a full day with the campers sharing their own recording and mixing techniques, instructions on how to get the most out of an artist, what it takes to make a hit record along with deep, personal insights into their incredible careers.

The Special Edition Music Producer Fantasy Camp will offer a very friendly and comfortable non-competitive environment that promises to educate, entertain and create an everlasting memory. This special event is for everyone from the established music producer to the up-and-coming mixer to the serious music fan!"

I dig reading Mikey's readers comments almost as much as his LP reviews, blogs, interviews ect so I was wondering why no comments on this incredible opportunity were posted. Just imagine the stories you'd hear if able to attend. I know 4K is mucho bucks but adjusted for inflation back to when these iconic artists were producing the world's classic rock and roll the price tag would be about 1K. I must have each and every one of their LPs bought back in time for no more than six dollars. I would love to be one of these R & R campers, being a very serious music fan, but 1k back in 1971 was a little steep for me just as 4K is today. Oh well. And of course one can buy alot of LPs with the money instead. In closing thanks Mikey for informing us about this camp and hope it's a success. Maybe the cost will be reduced for future camps.... Keep rocking.

The website info includes "Mastering: How to prepare your track for release on CD or digital (aac or mp4, mp3, etc)" but conspicuously omits any mention of mastering techniques relevant to analog media.
