Fallen Angels was a sweet encore. Now you really upped the ante. Did you feel after the first two, you had unfinished business? I did when I realized there was more to it than I thought, that both of those records together only were part of the picture, so we went ahead and did these.

Why did you decide to release three discs of music at once? It’s better that they come out at the same time because thematically they are interconnected, one is the sequel to the other and each one resolves the previous one. Is there something about the 10 song, 32 minute length that appeals to you? Sure, it’s the number of completion. It’s a lucky number, and it’s symbolic of light. As far as the 32 minutes, that’s about the limit to the number of minutes on a long playing record where the sound is most powerful, 15 minutes to a side.

My records were always overloaded on both sides. Too many minutes to be recorded or mastered properly. My songs were too long and didn’t fit the audio format of an LP. What’s the challenge of singing with a live horn section? No challenge, it’s better than overdubbing them. You like to be spontaneous in the studio, but here you’re working with tight arrangements and charts. Did that require a new way of thinking for you?

It did at first but then I got used to it. There’s enough of my personality written into the lyrics so that I could just focus on the melodies within the arrangements. As a vocalist you’re restricted within definite harmonic patterns. But you have more control within those patterns than you would if there were no boundaries whatsoever, it actually takes less thought, hardly any thinking.

So I guess you could call that a new way of thinking. If I did that the song would fall apart, nobody would be able to follow me. Are you concerned about what Bob Dylan fans think about these standards? These songs are meant for the man on the street, the common man, the everyday person.

Maybe that is a Bob Dylan fan, maybe not, I don’t know. Has performing these songs taught you anything you didn’t know from listening to them? Do they mean more to you when you hear them now? They do mean a lot more. These songs are some of the most heartbreaking stuff ever put on record and I wanted to do them justice. Now that I have lived them and lived through them I understand them better. They take you out of that mainstream grind where you’re trapped between differences which might seem different but are essentially the same.
