Capturing Michelle

[Michelle was] very easy to mix. There were no decisions to make, we'd made them all in the writing and in the recording... we would mix [songs], and it would take half an hour, maybe. Then it would go up on a shelf, in a quarter-inch tape box. And that was it ... I advise young groups these days, write 'em great, rehearse them up so you know 'em, have a good relationship between yourselves and go in and record them the simplest possible way that you can, mix it that day and have done with it. I wish I could take my own advice.
