...recording day 21...today the weezer recordings advanced like a conquering army, temporarily taking over a second recording studio nearby! While Ric and the engineers spent the day finishing the "comping" of the lead vocals at the main studio, The band trekked a few blocks away to another venerable L.A. recording studio (this one having seen the likes of the Doors and Van Halen over the years!), to do backing vocals. Also Rivers tried to re-do the Wurlitzer part on the new (still untitled song), but all 3 Wurlitzer keyboards we tried to rent had various problems that scrapped the attempt after several frustrating hours. Any way over half of the albums back-up vocal parts were done, and to blow off steam in between takes, the in-house enclosed basketball area was utilized to good effect...
