RIP Martin Birch.

I wish he had a biography, or did more interviews. There really isn't much out there about his early engineering days. As an engineer myself, Iíve always loved his approach.

I only really remember one quote about Then Play On where he said Green and Kirwan mainly worked on their songs alone in the studio. This is easy to hear in Closing My Eyes, Show-biz Blues, When You Say, Although the Sun is Shining etc. For a long album, there really arenít a lot of band songs besides the jams, Coming Your Way, Before the Beginning, One Sunny Day, and maybe a couple more. Perhaps thatís why Like Crying is such a treat.
