Horehound kick/drums

Hello and thanks Vance.

Before I new your name, I was blown away with the drums on The Deadweather's Horehound album.
In particular the kick and snare. The sound is huge and present from ear buds to subwoofer. I'd love to hear your recollections of recording that record and your thoughts on mixing drums and more specifically,
Getting a deep low kick that translates well on most playback systems.
Thanks,
SteveMc
