Paddy McAloon on Jesse James Symphony/Jesse James Bolero:

“(These songs) came about when I was trying to kickstart my writing again, and I thought, ‘What if I was writing something for Streisand or Presley?’ I decided to write something that would have appealed to Elvis’ own self-image. He liked to identify with mythic things, you can see that in his ‘American Trilogy’. So I wrote something that dealt with him in those mythic proportions: the image of the outlaw, and all the sentimentality that allows the singer.” - Melody Maker, August 4, 1990
