    Sorry if this already has been covered, but what are some of your favorite non-obvious drum recordings of all time? I'm not necessarily talking about the performance itself, but the way the drums *sound*. I'm looking for the hidden or under-appreciated gems.

    For me, the super "in the room" sound of Bill Berry on REM's Life's Rich Pageant album and Tom Maginnis on Buffalo Tom's Sleepy-Eyed album hit the mark. You?

    Almost anything recorded at "sound city". If you have not seen the documentary see it you will know exactly what I mean.

    "Where Will I Be?" from Wrecking Ball Emmylou Harris. Daniel Lanois producer Mark Howard engineer.
    Old school and simple.

    Almost any Elvis Costello. "Watching The Detectives" comes to mind first.

    +1 on anything from "Wrecking Ball" - rumor has it they used SM-57s on the OHs.

    Recorded in a living room, beautiful sounding record:



    This whole record sounds amazing:



    Another great, overlooked TP record:

    Bowie's latter 70's snare sound. Eventide rack and gating.

    Paul Cook's drumming on "Never Mind The Bollocks". Sounds like bombs going off.

    I have always enjoyed the drum sound on Gish by Smashing Pumpkins.

    Bill Berry drove that band! When my son was learning drums and playing John Bonham stuff all the time I told him to listen to Bill Berry, Ringo Starr, and Phil Rudd if he really wanted to learn what drumming could be.

    I think Bonham would win a popularity contest in this category.

    Some good drum sounds from Stanton Moore, Richie Hayward, Matt Cameron, Phil Collins,
    ?uestlove's drums sound nice on the Tonight show.

    Matt Chamberlain has had some nice drum sounds.
