The 3-track E.P. by Mary Ann, released on Goofin', is recorded in more or less the same way; except no room microphone is used.

The picture on the left shows how the drums were recorded. The drums are recorded with one microphone only: the RCA BK5 ribbon.

Close to the bass drum a mike is positioned to correct the sound of the bass drum on the recording if neccesary, but is not used in the mix.
