I knew Paul well and had been around him in the early Free days. A lovely sweet guy, quiet and shy in many ways. We recorded basic tracks at Island Basing Street Studio one - using my 'classic' rock set-up. AKG D12 on bass drum, AKG 224 on snare, Toms and Overheads Nuemann U87's. Bass D'I and AKG D12. Guitar AKG D20 and AKG C12A. Most guitar overdubs were done at Sawmills in Cornwall - blasting the Marshall cabs out into the valley around Fowey. We worked very fast in those days - I'm not sure there was much discussion - just set-up, get some sounds together and record.
