🔸”It’s the prime example what we were talking about before, I mean, the track ‘Breakthru’ sort of stemmed from Roger, really, it’s basically his track. But the sort of a capella vocal bit in front was from someone else, as we’ve said: we have 30 tracks, and that was a little piece that I thought was quite good, and I didn’t want it to go amiss, and I just said, ‘Oh, well, we’ll just put it in front of “Breakthru”.’ It’s basically another song, sort of seem to go away quite nicely, so, we just snipped it.”
