That's why anj opera star nowadays can hope to | make a popular record that will I sell." 1 It's easier to make a pop record, which may take an hour or so to wax than operas. Most of the operas take a week to record. Merrill explains that the longest part is spent in "balancing" — setting the orchestra and the different voices' at just the right distances from the mikes. "Some voices are stronger than others," he says, "so the singers are. usually at varied lengths from the mike. Not mentioning any names, but there are some who sneak up.over their chalk-marks, so they'll sound bigger on the record. The control room usually itatches that, though." u Which makes it attempted oral scene-stealing. THE POPULAR SIDE: If imitation, as they say, is the sincercst j form of flattery. Kay Starr and' Frantic Laine should feel mighty flattered these days.
