New York, NY (April 8, 2020)—Legendary producer/engineer Eddie Kramer will be the focus of an upcoming documentary, From the Other Side of the Glass, expected to shoot over the coming year, according to a report in Variety.
Throughout the classic rock era, Kramer recorded endless numbers of top acts, including the Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, Traffic, Kiss, Derek and the Dominoes, Peter Frampton and the Woodstock festival, among others. Today, he is still a fixture today in the world of pro audio, developing a long-running series of signature plug-ins for Waves, as well as often speaking as part of Mix with the Masters at NAMM and AES, sharing his insight and experience to a new generation of recording pros.
The project will be produced by documentarians Joe Berlinger (Metallica: Some Kind of Monster) and Spencer Proffer (Chasing Trane), and directed by John Dorsey (Year of the Scab). Rolling Stone magazine will also be involved in the project.
Having engineered a slew of era-defining Classic Rock albums, the name “Eddie Kramer” can be found in the credits of five Led Zeppelin albums, starting with Led Zeppelin II; Peter Frampton’s era-defining Frampton Comes Alive double-album; the Beatles’ “All You Need is Love” and “Baby, You’re A Rich Man;” multiple Kiss albums; and most notably, all four Jimi Hendrix albums released during the guitarist’s lifetime—Are You Experienced, Axis: Bold as Love, Electric Ladyland and the live album Band of Gypsys—as well as many of the collections of unreleased music that followed his untimely death in September, 1970.
Kramer, also an avid photographer, has exhibited his vintage rock photos in recent years at venues such as Morrison Hotel Gallery; a traveling exhibition of them is planned for during the film’s production and the shots will be eventually rounded up in a coffee table book by the publishing arm of Meteor 17, Proffer’s convergence and production venture which is also producing the film.
