Particolari ancora nascosti o poco noti su Rock Bottom? Ne indica qualcuno, en passant, Bill MacCormick: "Rock Bottom is the one album I would have loved to play on. Knowing that, in another universe, it would have been Gary Windo, Francis Monkman and me helping Robert interpret much of that music, is frustrating. Well, only in a way because what Robert et al produced was one of the most wonderful and hear-rending collections of music ever recorded. Not all of it was written in Venice. When Robert and Alfie moved into the flat in Lebanon Park in Twickenham bought for them by lustrous and radiant Julie Christie I remember asking Robert what had inspired Little Red Robin Hood Hit the Road. “Alfie”, he replied, “asked me to write something to make her cry”."
