All About Steve / Discography
NOTES: "You Are What You Is"

This was the first real studio album on which I ever played. I remember going up to Frank's house one night and staying for nine days. When you worked with Frank in the studio, you could just record and record until you couldn't stand it anymore. Then you sleep a little bit, you get up, maybe eat some Raisin Bran with room temperature milk and record, then record some more. Then there will be material out with you on it for many years to come. You Are What You Is was a challenging record to make. Some of the material was very hard for me and I was surprised at how patient Frank was. I remember how he would sit directly next to me at the console, punching me through the guitar parts. Moments like that are blazed into my memory, never to be forgotten.
