Los Angeles, CA (June 29, 2004)--Trailblazing folk-rocker Peter Case stopped by LA's Cups 'N Strings Studios to transfer new 16-track analog material to Digidesign Pro Tools for his upcoming album, Who's Gonna Go Your Crooked Mile? Selected Tracks 1994-2004, set for a September 14 release. As founder of The Plimsouls, known for the pop standard "A Million Miles Away," Case has enjoyed a flourishing career as a solo artist for the last two decades.

"I got a new sound going," he remarked during sessions. "I'm recording and performing with a great band--it's a hard-hitting record, sort of Garage-Folk-Soul." The new album includes selected tracks from his 1994-2004 Vanguard years and new tracks recorded at engineer Mike Meltzer's TMOP Studio, with Case's son Joshua co-producing/engineering and playing guitar and keyboards.

Cups 'N Strings has won a reputation for superior work in both the analog and digital domains, with a high profile among top engineer/producers like Elliot Scheiner, who called on studio owner/engineer Bruce Maddocks to make the conversions for the upcoming six-album Steely Dan reissue in 5.1 surround. When asked about his conversion experience at Cups 'N Strings, Case replied, "We recorded on 2-inch 16-track tape for that big, fat, analog sound and Bruce has done a wonderful job of retaining that quality in the conversion to digital for the mixing in Pro Tools--the proof is in the sound." Transfers of the analog tape were done from an Otari MTR-90 MkIII to a ProTools HD3 rig and then burned to DVD-R.
