In 1990, five years before PreSonus launched, PreSonus cofounder and president Jim Odom was in the business of making records the good ol’ fashioned way: 2-inch analog tape, racks of analog outboard gear, tons of knobs, and plenty of blood, sweat, and faders. One of the bands Jim produced was called Func Haus, an amazing power trio from Baton Rouge. They are still rockin’ today, BTW.
In the YouTube clip above, you’ll spot a long-haired, cigarette-smoking, not-yet PreSonus-cofounder-and-president Jim Odom, engineering the Desert Sky album for Func Haus. Thanks to Wendell Tilley for this rare glimpse into some of the formative days of PreSonus Audio Electronics!
