“Happy memories locked in a basement in the east end of London (Sarm East Studios) with Peter Collins (producer) and Julian Mendelsohn (engineer) rerecording the demos that secured me my deal with MCA Records.
Salt beef sandwiches and latkes from Blooms in Aldgate. Carol on reception. Bashing assorted kitchenware (Drum Talk) and fire extinguishers (Bogart). Hours of guitar overdubs in the tiny control room (Wouldn’t it be Good). Great expectations.”
