no frills, no nothing, no pastry

 "And when I first heard the sound of 'Heartbreak Hotel,' it wasn't that I suddenly wanted to be Elvis Presley.I had no idea who he was at the time. It was just the sound, the use of a different way of recording. The recording, as I discovered, of that visionary Sam Phillips of Sun Records. The use of echo. No extraneous additions. You felt you were in the room with them, that you were listening to exactly what went down in the studio. no frills, no nothing, no pastry"

p 80 Keith Richards' Life
