Aimee Mann weds ‘Bachelor No. 2’ and ‘Magnolia’ albums together for Black Friday Record Store Day reissue

Singer-songwriter Aimee Mann says it was just luck that she was working on songs for the album that became “Bachelor No. 2,” while her friend the writer-director Paul Thomas Anderson was writing the screenplay for “Magnolia.” “We were both starting our creative processes at the same time,” Mann says recently from her home in Los Angeles. “And so we were talking about the themes that we were writing about. “I remember him coming to the studio a couple of times while we were recording,” she says. ...
