Herb Powers, Jr.
From The Art and Popular Culture Encyclopedia
Herb Powers, Jr. is an American recording engineer. Powers was a former club DJ who joined Frankford/Wayne in 1976, learning the art of mastering records. "Back then the job entailed converting the music from half-inch tape to vinyl. I started putting my name on the dead wax on the first record, because I wanted to keep track of what I was doing. A lot of times, record companies did not give you credit on the records. It was a way for me to know that I actually mastered that record. It was also a way to tell that the record wasn't a reproduction made by a bootlegger." [...]
He now runs his own mastering facility, 'Powers House Of Sound', NYC, NY.
