‘I still don’t know if the title was the right thing to do. The consensus seems to be, in retrospect, that it hurt rather than helped. But I went with it because there were so many connections to the earlier album. It’s supposed to be something like a day in the life of New York, seen through the eyes of several different characters. The tracks are continuous and all in the same tempo, though the actual grooves change around it. That was a technical trick which I felt worked very well, it seemed to give the whole thing a kind of relentless drive like the energy of a big city. And I loved working with Marianne Faithfull (on ‘Love Got Lost’). Anyway, I reckon this is one of my best albums and certainly my most underrated.’
