This week we bring you our in-depth chat with producer & engineer Mike Fraser. Mike’s credit list is a Who’s Who of rock and metal music. In this conversation, we talk to Mike about many of his notable projects. Getting his start at the legendary Little Mountain Studios in Vancouver in the early 80’s, Mike Fraser was in good company right away; working with such production greats as Bob Rock and Bruce Fairbairn among many others. From his early days working on projects such as Rush’s Exit…Stage Left, Brian Adams’ Reckless, and Loverboy’s Notorious, Mike got his feet wet quickly on quality albums.

Things would go up a notch in 1987 with Aerosmith’s Permanent Vacation. Fraser, Rock, and Fairbairn would collaborate on the making of this comeback album from the Bad Boys from Boston. In this episode, Mike shares some cool behind the scenes stories about making of the album and working with the members of the band during big change in their lives. Mike also reflects on the making of the Pump album that would come out in 1989 and how the experience differed from the previous one.
