I recently got the reissue of Armed Forces, and this is what EC has to say about BB in the liner notes.

"On the eve of recording this album a girl arrived on my doorstep from America. At best we were strangers with a coy and theoretical entanglement. I thought that she was to be coming for a short visit and that I might at least satisfy my curiousity about her. However, she turned up with eight pieces of luggage like a mail-order bride and moved in. I was too stupid and vain to resist. She'd later claimed to have inspired most of the songs on this record---all of which were already written when we met. This was said also about the previous release---a chronological impossibility---and many of my other compositions to this day. It is a tragic delusion about which I wish I could say: "I shall not dignify that with a response" but "dignity" doesn't come into this story."
