This episode features a conversation between Luther
Russell and I with producer John Leckie - if you aren't
familiar with his name, you may be with the acts he's worked with
(working backwards chronologically): My Morning Jacket - New Order
- Radiohead - Robyn Hitchcock and The Egyptians - The Posies -
Stone Roses - XTC - Dukes of Stratosphear - Human League -
Simple Minds - Magazine - Be Bop Deluxe - Wizzard - Mott The Hoople
- Barclay James Harvest - Syd Barrett - Pink Floyd - Roy Harper -
Paul McCartney and Wings.
For the purposes of our discussion, we focus on three key albums he worked on at the onset of his career: the pair of Plastic Ono Band releases by John and Yoko, and All Things Must Pass. It's those first two that we examine in detail, fifty years on (well, a little Pink Floyd too). John has the stories and the insights - it was our honor to host him (and keep him from his dinner).
