Sound Opinions replayed a 2006 interview with music producer Jon Brion last week. I’m a big fan of the Aimee Mann albums he produced, and I reckon “I’m with Stupid” is her best work. The interview is possibly the best feature I’ve heard on Greg Kot and Jim DeRogatis’s fantastic podcast, with the highlight being the looped track “I was Happy with You.” What a talent….AND he mentioned that both “For Your Pleasure” and “Siren” , the Chris Thomas produced Roxy Music albums, were their finest recordings. Well there was never any doubt about “For Your Pleasure” but I’ve always enjoyed the overlooked “Siren” the most and it was nice to here some form of validation for that piece of work from Brion.
Check the show out when you get a chance here.
