But very few people really know much about the real Millard and much has been made of his "eccentricities". But at the end of the day, Mike the Mike is a legend and this trailer for an upcoming short documentary not only reveals a bit about the person but also delves into how he was able to get such incredible sound using 70's recording equipment. Current technology used by today's tapers still can't quite capture the quality that Millard was able to capture. Equipment similar to Mike the Mike's was used to record a show at the Greek Theater in Berkeley by The National. Even Matt Berninger of The National is blow away by the sound achieved calling it "Juicy Sonic Magic" . It's an amazing project and a great look at the man, the myth, and the legend (and legendary way he taped shows). The film also features the only know available photo of Mike Millard. I'll forever be linked to Mike the Mike by my own recording made the same night as the famous Listen to This Eddie Led Zeppelin show at the Forum in 1977. It's really cool to see how he did it and learn a bit more about him. Please check out this trailer and look for the full release. It's really cool!
