The secret behind Les Paul's multi-track recordings (1950)

This image of the legendary
Les Paul as septuplets appeared on the back cover of the October, 1950 issue of Capitol News.

At that time, it had only been a couple of years since Paul began to experiment at home in his garage with multitrack recording. His innovations would soon change the recording industry forever.

Mary Ford on the Oct. 25, 1953 episode of CBS TV's educational series, 'Omnibus'.
