Wow, her level of involvement after reading all the comments now makes sense. I remember some things from around that time (dating myself here).

She wasn't the only one with "issues", a need to "supplement" instruments electronically, and recording in your ex's bedroom? Eek!

I agree, though, it would have been nice on this release to have heard more of those "oooo" , "aaaaa" vocals that were erased. But, that's ok.

I wasn't sure I was going to buy this release. But, after reading all this, I think I will. This was one of my favorite areas musically.

No. Some parts may have been recorded there, but I would think very little. Lindsey said he kept the recording out of the house, for his girlfriend's sake. Mick said in his book,

"It took us 18 months, working under completely different conditions from what we were used. We had started out at Rumbo Sound in the Valley, where the basic tracks were cut. We then moved production to the studio Lindsey built in the garage of his house, called the Slope, where we would mix and do the overdubs. It wasn't really a proper studio per se; everything was recorded right in the control room. The acoustics were the wooden floor, the bathroom, the carpet, the hallway. To minimize wear and tear to the property, John Courage brought in a trailer with phones and a TV and a place to hang out."
