the Singing Nun -a small taper recorder descended and she recorded a track then sang harmony over it-a strange song that seemed to be about Domination,or Dominoes or something.



My introduction to double-tracking came in 1955 when Peggy Lee demonstrated the technique on the Disneyland TV show. She sang the parts of the two cats Si and Am on "the Siamese Cat Song" from the movie "Lady and the Tramp." They used two tape decks, recording first to one and then bouncing to the other while she sang the second part.



Of course by then I'd already heard a lot of Les Paul and Mary Ford records, but I didn't have a clue about the technique.

Other double-trackers from the early '60s included Dick and Deedee ("The Mountain's High"- 1961) and Jan and Dean ("Linda" - 1963).
