It's a drag scene at the moment. Everyone's playing the same stuff—James Brown, Otis Redding and Wilson Pickett. It's stalemate! So we're going right back to dig up some old numbers from the Dion-Everlys era. There was some good stuff out then that we could adapt to our style. And it's just the right time.
