Elvis Costello's "Imperial Bedroom"

Hi Geoff,

On your production of Elvis Costello's album "Imperial Bedroom" (one of my favorite records) it sounds like many different textures and 'characters' were employed as far as vocal sounds go... even on individual tracks. Any comments on the technical approach to this process or the concept behind it? Thanks.

Basically my approach on that album was to apply ideas I had on different ways to record vocals no matter how weird it sounded at the time, I really went overboard and as you can hear on the record that was the result, there was a lot of equalization involved. Geoff
