In Their Own Words: The Producers discuss McCartney’s Flowers in the Dirt

This week sees this re-release of Paul McCartney‘s 1989 album Flowers in the Dirt and in this very special SDE Premium Feature* SuperDeluxeEdition.com talks to four producers who between them, were responsible for nine of the album’s 13 tracks.

TREVOR HORN was best known for his work with Frankie Goes To Hollywood and was one of the hottest producers on the planet in 1987, when he and his partner STEPHEN LIPSON drove down to Paul’s studio to work with the ex-Beatle. MITCHELL FROOM was a new producer at the time, who was basking in the success of delivering a US #2 hit for Crowded House (Don’t Dream It’s Over) and CHRIS HUGHES was an experienced and highly respected talent who’d produced (and played drums) on all the Adam and The Ants albums before playing a key role in Tears For Fears‘ mega-selling Songs From The Big Chair (he also co-wrote Everybody Wants To Rule The World).
