Being the 32nd Anniversary n'all, I thought it was high time I posted my two-year research project on the making of First And Last And Always. This study is based on new and exclusive interviews and draws on many primary sources.

And an exciting and entertaining read as well ... :) ... now this should bring quite some revisions (and extensions) on the SistersWiki, too ...
I've already linked it to the - shamefully rudimentary :oops: :oops: - First And Last And Always album page and to the Recording Sessions Page,
which I had started just a week ago in order to get The Sisters' sessions - at least basically - sorted ... :lol: ... what a joke compared to this ... :lol: ...

thanks for bumping this, what a great read.

And now I know why AE was simpatico with Jim Steinman - "he spent time working through the night adding unnecessary extra layers to the arrangement."
