When I met Bill Porter back in '81 he was a guest lecturer at what was
then called Full Sail Recording Institute. He played us several of his
personal favorite tracks during class, and I think the one he was most
proud of was Roy Orbison's "Running Scared". He pointed out how much
real dynamic range it had; it's pretty quiet at first, but then it
gradually builds up to a big crescendo at the end. He had also been
the house mastering engineer for Monument, so he was able to tweak the
whole signal chain to get the maximum signal-to-noise ratio out the
finished records. I have a few original Monument vinyl pressings of
Orbison albums, and none of the cd reissues even come close to
sounding as good.

Besides being a great engineer, Bill was also a true southern
gentleman, and I just wish now that I'd taken more time to talk with
him while I had the chance.
