“What a fun album this was. We recorded it at Rockfield Studios in Wales. It was one of those records where you just have a great time from start to finish. I’m still very good friends with Dave Newton, the guitar player. I have an electric 12-string guitar that I swapped with him for my old pair of Yamaha NS-10s. I think he still mixes on them.
“It took a while to get the drum sound, and at one point Chris Blackwell, the drummer from Robert Plant’s band, drove over and helped us set things up.
“There’s a great single on the album called Inside Out – it got a lot of play on K-Rock. It was wonderful to hear it when I was recording in America. The album was number one on the Rolling Stone college chart.”
