“We took off so quickly and did so many things in a four-year-period. We were making the kind of music for these big places and huge stadiums, but I started to want to do more of a rock album. Rather than do what we normally did – Annie and I working together and inviting odd people to play on things – this time we went to a studio with players and cut it like a band performing live on stage.
“We had Clem Burke on drums, and we flew in certain people like Jimmy ‘Z’ Zavala. The idea was to record with the band that we would tour with, and that’s what we did. The Revenge tour was our biggest tour, and this was our biggest-selling album outside of our Greatest Hits.
“The funny thing about Eurythmics was, we had to release different singles for different countries. Missionary Man was more of an American track, and it was huge, but they didn’t really comprehend it in the UK. That seemed to happen with us. We had a song called There Must Be An Angel (Playing With My Heart) [from the album Be Yourself Tonight], that was number one all over the world, but I don’t even it was even released in America.”
