Emmy Lou Harris's song Connection that won a Grammy for best Country Vocal this year. It was recorded / produced by Brian Ahern who told me that the vocal and all instrumentals were done with an AEA R44 CNEX . He had planned to switch mics if the sound was wrong, but it always sounded right.

Over sixty years ago, when audio was on the cutting edge of physics, teams of this country's brightest engineers were developing equipment for sound recording and reproduction. They could afford to work without the commercial constraints placed on today's designers.

RCA developed a superior series of recording and broadcast microphones that included the 44BX and 77DX. The 44 and 77's smooth top end and uncolored sound make them studio favorites today. They are also visual icons of an era when technology and glamour were synonymous.
