    I was just listening to Rainy Days And Mondays at the start of the Live In Japan album and at the part "Hanging around nothing to do but frown", the backing vocals part that sings "Hanging Around" sounds like Karen whilst Karen is singing the lead. Did they use pre recorded backing vocals ?

    That’s one of the guys (probably Doug Strawn or Danny Woodhams) doing backing vocals in falsetto :)

  3. I thought I once read they did have concert equipment that was designed to "augment" their voices (perhaps with a delay); it might have been around the time they were featured in the Shure microphone ads.
