Eddie Kramer: "From the Other Side of the Glass"; New Book And Film
sound engineer and producer Eddie Kramer has
worked with everyone from the Beatles and Led Zeppelin to KISS, Jimi
Hendrix and Rolling Stones. Now he’s preparing to tell his tale
with the book and film documentary, «From the Other Side of the
2012, Kramer will celebrate his 50th year
in the business and his 70th birthday.
These milestones have prompted him to push forward with ‘Other Side
of the Glass.’ Based on many of the historic rock ‘n’ roll
photographs he’s taken over the years, the film and book will cover
the years ’67 to ’73 -“rock ‘n’ roll at its peak and

Cornell Daily Sun.
continues to talk about being in the right place at the right time,
explaining that “it was the perfect crucible of all of the
influential, royal greats of rock ‘n’ roll - the Stones,
Traffic, Small Faces, I mean, it was just marvelous.”

to be mind numbing (in a positive way), and that this particular
class will be remembered long after their diplomas turns yellow.

“inventive and don’t turn anything down.” Coming from someone
with his credentials, that’s “Rock ‘n’ Roll 101.”
