    In the old days, people really worked to record a song in a new way:

    Great video...really cements for me the idea that this song is a modern masterpiece. 10cc took a chance on this unorthadox recording/production technique and it paid off handsomely. Question: when the rhythm guitar was isolated, did anyone else think it sounded like an unamplified electric?

    I remember reading a guitar mag interview back in the day regarding the recording of that song.

    Amazing stuff.

    . . . and to think, that all the technology used today still turns out some of the most bland, soulless cr@p . . . and these guys used the "basic" technology of the time - with great technique - to create one of the most beautiful pop songs of all time !
