Boz is credited with playing 6 instruments and arranging strings on the album.
He was present throughout the recording sessions including Sunset for finishing.
I'm not sure reduced writing automatically indicates a reduced role?
The additions to That's Entertainment may well have been 'phoned...
This notion comes from the New Year video being suggested as shot in The Sunset Marquis Hotel.
SER is definitely in the Altrincham area, but with Morrissey being MIA, I'd suggest it could have a ring of truth to it.
Would give Chad's comments better context.
Happy to be wrong...
