"I'm Not In Love" Isolated Vocal Loops

Here's another case of something that's common today but state-of-the-art way back when. I've posted here several times about the making of 10CCs "I'm Not In Love," a hit that relied on an amazing array of tape loops used as the pad element of the song. Today we would just play these loops on a keyboard and sequence them in a DAW, but back then these custom loops were actually played on the faders of a console during mixing. Check out this movie about how it was done.

The movie below allows you to hear all of these loops isolated by themselves. It's a fascinating piece of days gone by. Here's the song in its entirety where you hear the loops in context.
