I would like to thank you for your contribution to the sounds that filled my hands in the air in front of my wardrobe window for years.

Any recollections about the Sneakin' Sally and Double Fun sessions?


First time I worked with Robert was on Sneakin' Sally - great tracking in New Orleans with The Meters and Lowell George, Island Mobile Studio at my house in Sussex for overdubs - vocals out doors. Mixed at Basing Street. Fast and great fun. Double fun less so - heavy New York session scene, costly, did not think the songs were quite there.... Lovely guy to work with, humorous, sharp, dedicated.... check out AWSR? for Robert Palmer chapters.
