You know, in those days, there were just bars; down and out, maybe a jukebox, I don't remember music. What I do remember is I wanted Harry to go do his next album (after "The Point") in England. They had the best electronics (with the Germans) in the world. American stuff was junk, I knew. I wanted George Martin to produce him, but he chose the producer who'd done Barbra Streisand, Richard Perry(who I did not get along with) and, bingo! Harry had some hits.
