The new diaries have become an impressive documentation of the whole process of recording that MK is undertaking nowadays.

He quite often said, that you have to avoid to become like a kid in the sweets shop (given the endless possibilities at BGS).
Apparently he does a lot of tweaking and fiddling to find the perfect sound for the specific song, I assume it must be challenging to detect the point when a song has to be considered as finished. Honestly, I do appreciate the passion and time he puts into recordings, but I'm in the same way fascinated by these "one take & first take" recordings like "Haul Away".

Maybe he should consider to do another EP just in one day - rough and unpolished, let's called "Twisting By The Pool II"....

"Haul Away" being done in one take..makes you realize that we are in for a real treat once the album is released. Can't wait! I'm curious about which song Ian had to add some percussion work onto..as Guy says.."This was an example of a recording which took an unexpected turn as time went by and it was decided that the drums needed a different approach.".. maybe a song that they played on tour?..which leaves "Privateering" or "Corned Beef City".

I did notice a few changed notes in the singing of Privateering as the tour progressed, but I don't think the drums changed (unless I just didn't notice anything). And speaking of Corned Beef City, was that one played anywhere else except Glasgow? Cuz I haven't seen any other recordings.
