Want to know what the longest-running TV cartoons of all time are? That's a hell of a lot of colouring in. Top Cat? They were created for specific, yet different, purposes. This is because JPEG discards most of the information to keep the image file size small; which means some degree of quality is also lost. But if you take a closer look, the JPEG image is not as sharp as the original image.
Then the goal was to make a record. No fallback jobs. No better incentive than that.
All the Ted Hutt stuff was very produced and very slick, and this was the last one we did with himвthe third out of three. This one, it has all the production qualities that Ted brings to the table, but I was able to get out from that whole Memphis sound thing and go back to the more emotional style of the early songs.
And this was one of the first records where I thought we got closer to hitting that mark. And it took 15 years to get there. You said that Lucero tries to write classic rock radio hits, which is something that I think gets lost on people.
