good question, Joe. Just to make sure I've got them straight, is the mix that appears on the US Anthology the same mix that was on See All Her Faces
, or is it the US single mix? Beyond that I can't think of anywhere else it may have appeared.
I remember reading Rashkow's comments in Paul's book...jeeesh!
On the one hand i can understand where he's coming from- this wasn't even meant for Dusty, it was meant for Ellie to release, and the mix they handed over was supposed to be the final version. I'm sure there was personal investment and pride in the work they did.
ON THE OTHER HAND...who's to say Dusty was aware of any of that? She received the record, and since it was HER name on it, she probably went ahead and did what she had done with countless other recordings, tweaked them to her relative satisfaction. Was Rashkow's main issue that he didnt like the drummer, or that he was under the impression the singer would dutifully add her vocals regardless of how she felt about the final product, with no questions asked? If that were the case, it seems an interesting contradiction, as he was working with a female artist who also flexed her creative muscles. Either way, his reaction, all of those years later, was a bit much.
