On Road Apples we had the benefit of working with Don Smith and Bruce Barris again. We still had plenty to learn about studios and it made sense to team up with these guys, we really enjoyed working with them last time and there was one less unknown [a new producer] in the recording equation. We booked five weeks at Daniel Lanois's Kingsway Studio in the French Quarter of New Orleans. This studio atmosphere was way more relaxed and informal when compared with other he'd used. The studio is in an old mansion with 14-foot ceilings. The rooms have a terrific natural sound. Most of the time we all played in the same enormous room where Don and Bruce and the consoles were. When we needed a break the pool table and kitchen were close by.
