This time we continue with Jerry Donahue’s notes in the CD insert, where we are being introduced to the new producer, Glyn Johns.
“He has engineered &/or produced top acts such as The Kinks, The Stones, The Who, The Eagles and The Beatles, among many others. Trevor made the call and to our delight, Glyn agreed. Obviously our music was known to be somewhat specialized [sic; he is a USA guy, after all], and certainly very different from the acts he had worked with up to this point, and I think that he saw it as a bit of a challenge. Knowing Glyn as I do now, that would have attracted him.
“Well unlike so many renowned producers, who typically would just wait for you to show up on the day of recording, Glyn asked to come to our pre-production rehearsal, asking to hear all of the material that we had put forth for consideration – not just the ten or so that we would have settled on by then.”
More next time.
