"The business of making records has worried me so much and I'm only just beginning to come to terms with it or, rather, I've found a solution. I'm delighted to say that I've made my last "studio" disc. From now on everything will be live, all or nothing, selected from a mountain of tapes waiting for me in Paris. I cause lots of problems because I don't believe in editing and splicing—a bit of this, a bit of that. I never play anything the same way twice, the acoustics vary from hall to hall and so do the off-stage noises of my audiences. My producers and engineers tear their hair out on my behalf but I refuse to compromise. I believe in the real thing."

From an interview given in 1997.
