Welcome to EvO:R Entertainment
The EvO:R The Goods Section|
Welcome to the EvO:R-The Goods Section.
Many websites have been put up to warn people about scams
and services that do not live up to expectations. As a result we have
had a huge void in websites that list services that reach or exceed our expectations.
Every March I send out emails to thousands of people requesting that if they had a great
experience with any company, service, or website involved in the music business to please send me
that information. Well, it seems as if it is much harder to get people to respond and share a
good experience then a bad one so we will slowly build each of our sections based on the results of the March
emails and we will continue to add more and more topics and compliments as we move forward.
EvO:R does not take responsibility for any site or service in this section. We are simply providing
websites and services that have exceeded expectation in the past.

Smart Studios -
Who has recorded at Smart Studios, the legendary studio owned by
Garbage drummer Butch Vig (and producer and engineer of Nirvana's "Nevermind"),
you ask? Well, who hasn't! Everyone from Garbage, Son Volt, Rainer Maria, Beck, Hey Mercedes,
U2, The Promise Ring, Smashing Pumpkins, Paris Texas, and Nirvana!! And tons of cool indie
bands you've never heard of. That's right! This isn't Butch Vig's private studio, as some think.
Smart Studios is open to the public. They'll work with ANY budget and get you in - should you
want to record there. Any why wouldn't you want to?
Smart Studios in Madison, WI. Wow! That's
all I can say. CD Baby members take notice. If you're in the area, record here. Need I
remind you who recorded here? We love them!
Jackpot! Recording Studio -
Portland-based recording studio that is ran by
Tape Op editor Larry Crane. Crane has recorded everyone from Sleater-Kinney, Elliott Smith,
The Go-Betweens, Stephen Malkmus, Pavement, Quasi, and Richard Buckner at Jackpot!. Besides
loving so many records he's recorded, I also read Tape Op! like crazy. I've been a subscriber
for years and have always been a fan of Larry Crane. To hear he's a fan of CD Baby, well,
it made me quite happy....

Makeshift Studio -
Ran by engineer Darron Burke,
Makeshift Studios has done recordings for everyone
from Folk Implosion/Sebadoh front man Lou Barlow, the Damn Personals, Mary Timony,
and Troma Studios Films. What is even more impressive is that the studio features
a bunch of cool, eclectic tube and solid state analog gear that Burke personally
hunted down from old movie houses, studios, film companies, and more. A huge Devo fan,
Burke loves to record those quirky pop records! He's also a swell guy and we here at
CD Baby can't say enough good things about him.

Company Zero -
Evan Rabby did some incredible work on Yaya Diallo's CD Nangape.
Not only did he do a superb mastering job ... he meticulously cleaned the oxidation off
a 22 year old 15 ips studio tape as preparation, resulting in a much sharper sound
than the 7 1/2 ips tape that was used in 1980 to master the LP version would
have given. Evan also does remote and studio recording and small CD duplication
runs. Needless to say, Evan Rabby also mastered Yaya Diallo's Live at Club Soda, again a
remarkable job working only from a sound board cassette. Not much he could do
about the original recording which was not set up to record a record but the
result is so fabulous giving a totally different side of Yaya Diallo's music
that it just had to go on record.
