Gary's account runs ...
"I've always enjoyed playing on her records. She expects a lot of the musicians she gets in, and I did things I'd never done before. On The Red Shoes, there were the bare bones of a track, and you had to make up what you thought would fit. She didn't have a perfectionists' iron grip in the sense of: 'These are the notes you will play.' She drew you in the direction she wanted to go.
"She comes across first as a woman and a mother these days. Sometimes I've told her I'm playing somewhere, and she's come along. She's not holed up. I don't blame her for being a bit defensive. She has been bombarded by the media from very young, when she had this huge No 1. She's one of our best. Kate hasn't made enough records. But that's up to her. Whatever she has done has been remarkable."
