I've been getting back into Scopitones in a big way over the last few weeks, and one of my new projects will be an attempt to post all of the U.S. made, S-Series Scopitones (I'm only missing 3 or 4 out of the original 74, and can hopefully fill in from YouTube or some kind contributor) over at our sister site Scopitones.com.
"We were really excited to stumble upon a Scopitone machine in a coffeeshop/thrift store in Montreal! Scopitones were like film jukeboxes. They were invented in France in the early 60s and inspired the music videos of our more modern times. Brian has long been a fan of Scopitone "music films", after learning about this site where you can watch some of them!"
I remember when Roddy recorded this in Boston, where I was living at the time (playing bass in Dumptruck). I got to attend a bunch of the sessions produced by Michael Jonzun of The Jonzun Crew ("Pac Jam"). I know that it was recorded for a film soundtrack (somehow I remember Kelly McGillis was one of the stars) and then rejected. Roddy put it on Aztec Camera's Love LP and ironically it went on to become one of their biggest hits.
