Everything But The Girl: Tracey Goes To Dollywood

Lucy O'Brien, New Musical Express, 23 August 1986

"Rob, our drummer, turned up to the first rehearsal with the idea we were vaguely bossa nova-ish. The first thing I said was, 'D'you like Country and Western, Rob?', and his face fell. 'Of all the musical forms in the world it's the only one I can't stand!' 'We'll have to do something about that', I said, and in the end we had them all listening to country music. Now you never see Rob without his collar clips and bootlace tie." (Tracey)
