About

Paul was a great producer: thorough, businesslike and loose at the same time. They were very comfortable sessions that followed a pattern. We’d start working at nine or 10 in the morning. Paul would show Denny Seiwell, the drummer [who would later become an original member of Wings], and David Spinozza and Hugh McCracken, the guitar players who split the date, the song we’d be tracking that day. After rehearsing for several hours, we’d cut a version of the tune and then have a lunch break. After lunch, we’d listen to what we had and then record another couple of takes if it was necessary.

We had a 3M MM-1000 16-track recorder and a homemade console at CBS. Studio B was a big room, about 40 or 50 feet long and 50 feet wide with a 40-foot-high ceiling. We didn’t worry about bleeding at all. The setup was real tight and everyone had headsets. Paul was absolutely the best. I was impressed with his musicianship and command of the studio.
