So yeah, so, but February 11th, which I remember because it's St. Bernadette's Day, I rang Robbie and said, "Look, I really want to make this record," and whatever, and he said, "Grand," and within three weeks, I was in Jamaica making the record, which was unbelievable. So I rung him February 11th, I think it's three weeks, or maybe not, a bit, a bit longer, February 11th, I rang him, March 16th I got there to started recording, which is pretty incredible. So he and Sly and all just managed to pull together like the whole fucking thing in like, three weeks, so I knew what songs I wanted to do because they were the ones that, you know, really meant a lot to me. It wasn't like, "I want to make a reggae record; give me lots of CDs," you know what I mean? I'd been living on this shit for, you know, whatever...it's my drug, you know.
