To me it sounds like an attempt to double her vocals by laying one copy on top of itself, slightly delayed, but at the same speed. This creates that unnatural sound that borders on phasing, as one sound beats against the other, creating slight cancelling of some frequencies to one degree or another.
I wonder why he didn’t fix that at the time the album was made then?
Well, Richard also say that the "effect" on the song "Get Together" was not intentional.
I don't understand how that can be, either.
If you’re talking Offering, all the bouncing of vocal and orchestral tracks gives it a muddier sound. Minimal choices back then.
Even with bouncing, if your levels are too high, your going to get distortion. Yes in the analog world you can go above 0db, but that’s when you run into distortion territory.If you’re talking Offering, all the bouncing of vocal and orchestral tracks gives it a muddier sound. Minimal choices back then.
One of the most alluring shots of Karen ever.WOW, I can't believe I missed this one, it appears A&M placed 2 different ads for Please Mr. Postman in Billboard (one I posted above) and now this one issued in Dec 21, 1974 well ahead of the album Horizon ever being issued. I like this one!!!!

Amen to that! So true.I adore that slight 'catch' in her voice - she judges it with complete perfection.
It imparts the yearning and level of sincerity of the lyric with absolute effectiveness.
I am astounded sometimes as to the control she had over her voice, what she could do with it and how she could make you feel with it.
I'm grateful for what beauty she gave us but also can't help but think with longing as to what we have missed, when we lost her.
^^Beautifully said !
"As we eye the blue HORIZON's end...."
That first line of the lyric seems to tie into the structure of the entire HORIZON album !
