    CLASSICBANDS DOT COM said: “According to former roadie David Blayney in his book SHARP DRESSED MEN: Linden Hudson co-wrote much of the material on the ZZ Top ELIMINATOR album.”
    (Linden never received credit or monies for his work on this huge, multi-platinum, grammy nominated record album) ++

    LICKLIBRARY DOT COM (in 2013) ZZ TOP'S BILLY GIBBONS SAID: “the Eliminator sessions in 1983 were guided largely by another one of our associates, Linden Hudson, a gifted engineer, during the development of those compositions.” (end quote) (Gibbons admits these facts after 30 years, but offers Linden no apology or reparations for lack of credits/monies) ++

    MUSICRADAR DOT COM (in 2013): Interview with Billy Gibbons (ZZ Top guitarist), Gibbons broke 30 years of silence about Linden Hudson introducing synthesizers into ZZ Top's sound. Gibbons said: “This was a really interesting turning point. We had befriended somebody who would become an influential associate, a guy named Linden Hudson. He was a gifted songwriter and had production skills that were leading the pack at times. He brought some elements to the forefront that helped reshape what ZZ Top were doing, starting in the studio and eventually to the live stage. Linden had no fear and was eager to experiment in ways that would frighten most bands. But we followed suit, and the synthesizers started to show up on record.”

    The Linden Hudson story has returned after more than 30 years to haunt Billy Gibbons. The internet made that possible.

    ABOUT THIS TUTORIAL:
    Tutorial by Linden Hudson
    Linden: Film/video sound engineer of 25 years experience
    ++++
    This tutorial discusses a feature that is available on many video/film style portable field audio mixers. Some of the sound and dialogue that is recorded by the sound man on a video shoot is outside in windy conditions. Assuming all has been done to shield the microphone properly, a person should also consider cutting off some of the low end with a low cut filter which is built into each mic input of many models of field mixers. Two models are shown in the video. One shown is a cheapo but workable mixer the other (442) is a high end and popular mixer. The very low end of dialogue will not be missed, will make the track sound less muddy, and will help with wind noise. Trust me. DO NOT BE AFRAID, GO INTO THE LIGHT, CUT SOME LOW END OFF.

By Linden Hudson. Linden has been a location sound guy in video and film production for over 20 years. He makes cheapo tutorials that give good info and good ideas. Before Linden worked in Film and Video he spent the better part of 20 years working in recording studios and in music production. In fact, Linden Hudson was on the pre-production team of one of the biggest record albums in history, the ZZ Top "Eliminator" album. In fact this album is registered certified "diamond" status (diamond status starts at ten time platinum, it's huge). Linden also wrote a song on that album ("Thug") but he had to sue ZZ for his money (it sucks). You can read about Linden's "not so pleasant" experience with ZZ Top at: lindenhudson.com/fa .
