This is a great story about the ranch, listing Earth, Wind & Fire in the also-ran section at the end, missed the opportunity to observe that the reason a black soul music band recorded there was because three of the band at that time, including lead singer Phillip Bailey, were from Denver.


They were indeed, Mark, as well as East High School graduates, as I recall. We have Philip Bailey's book Shining Star available on our shelves for any interested in checking out this bit of Denver history.

I received my degree in Music Engineering from the University of Colorado and had the pleasure of using the NEVE mixing board that was donated from Caribou Ranch. The late Roy Pritts who taught engineering at CU at the time had a lot to do with helping that acquisition happen. Thanks for the interesting article!


Thanks so much for sharing that, Mike! Is the one donated to CU the same one in the early photos?
