Words about music (594): Paul Rothchild

Producers are curators of an artists best work. They save the best, throw away the rest. Then, when the artist hears the finished product, his self-esteem is boosted and perhaps he can go back in and do a take like the one the producer just made for him. But if you play them the whole take with them sounding so terrible, it destroys them because they hear how awful they are. I'm not talking about every artist just self - destructive ones. Elvis' later works were put together the same way. Some of Linda Ronstadt's stuff was even done that way, and she's not self-destructive as far as I know.
