Quotations and trivia

Hugh Padgham asked about co-mixing with Neil Dorfsman:

"We didn't do it together. He mixed two or three songs and I mixed the rest. I didn't mix the single 'We'll Be Together', 'Be Still My Beating Heart', 'They Dance Alone' or 'Little Wing', but I did all the others and I mastered the whole album and put in some little effects. Sting was there with me most of the time and approved the mix. We did it on a SSL at A&M studios in Los Angeles."
