The Making Of 10CC's "I'm Not In Love"

Reader Jonathan Roberts sent me a heads up about the documentary based around the making of 10CC's big 1975 hit "I'm Not In Love." I had posted this about 3 years ago, but when I went back in the archives to check the post out, the YouTube video that I had used had been removed, so here it is again with an even better video version.

"I'm Not In Love" was 10CC's biggest hit and is considered a masterpiece of production. The band was really ahead of their time in the way they used samples as the bed for this track.

For those of you who have never used magnetic tape machines, you'll be both horrified and amazed to see what they had to go through to get what can so commonly be done with any sampler or DAW today.

This video is great in that it breaks down the production techniques and allows you to hear the isolated tracks, then hear how they fit in the track with the other instruments.
