"We recorded it in Holland in twenty-five minutes from start to finish. At that point, they had been on tour for a few months, and they were so tight - it was brilliant. It was such an absolute pleasure for me. I think we did it in the second or third take with no drop-ins, no overdubs, no nothing! It was also experimental because we had two different rooms all feeding into the same tape machine - it was great. So my favourite song not on the album is Please."
- Howie B. on recording the single version of Please
