"Mitch, you probably dont
remember the Master Beat, we recorded in the Warehouse back about 13 or 14 years,
but I stumbled across your site and thought Id let you know that the tracks
you engineered and mixed for us were the best sounding of all the work we did,
whether it was at other Philly studios or with other Warehouse/Sonic engineers.
People are always ready to denigrate ones work, so I thought Id pass on kudos, albeit a little late "
