The Session

‘Ain’t Like The Rest’ is a song on Caleb Henry’s ‘California Mistake’ record. Recorded in the spirit of the great southern rock and honky-tonk bands of the 70s and 80s, this song captures Caleb’s swagger and confidence as a performer and player.   

This 23-track session was recorded with the whole band playing together for the basic tracking, with additional parts and vocals done as overdubs. You can hear some of the tracking bleed in the drum overheads! This is the exact set of tracks used for the final mix. The stereo mix in the session was created using Plugin Alliance plugins exclusively.
