Default good recorded drum sound: ELP 1970

The engineers where in top form on this, sounds like a modern recording:

Except maybe the bass drum, which is more of Buddy Rich kind of sound. it needs more meat...

Definitely... I heard something like BR said he could outdrum most drummers with one hand, but for Carl he needs two!

Another BR witticism was what Carl doesn't steal .he plays quite well.

great kit helps... nicely tuned too. But it sounds like it was recorded yesterday! I can see a single MD421 overhead, maybe another mic in the back?

Yea, I didn't see any close in mics (besides on the kick). There's that MD421 that looks to be in the middle and I think a room mic or two. The mic behind the kit too. Pretty minimal.
