I've always loved Clifton Chenier. My mom used to put his records on when I was little, and my fascination for the "King of Zydeco" has never waned.
When Chenier went into the studio he'd say, "when it's red, it's gold." That is, when the recording light was one, he'd make a gold record. He worked his whole life recording in one take. The sound of his fingers clack on the accordion keys knowing he'd only just stepped into the booth is fantastic.
We got another discussion of one-takes in the car world now that GYM5 is out, showing Ken Block's attempt to sate the world's collective lust to see hoonage on San Franciscan streets. StreetsideStig focused on what's really important about the video, and the rest of the discussion gives a good sense of where car culture is going.
