Maureen Sickler, Rudy Van Gelder's assistant, remembers: "Rudy got to remaster many of the Blue Note albums that he originally recorded, and I was lucky enough to be in the control room with him when he worked on the "Soul Station" album. The sound was so beautiful it was breathtaking. I could hardly believe I was in the same place it was recorded, and working with the man who single-handedly captured all that music."
