Happy Birthday to Dudley Moore. Brilliant comedian (along with partner Peter Cook) and the star and music composer of the great 60s film Bedazzled, from which we got our name (and logo). He passed away March 27, 2002. Would have been 78 today.
Documentary footage of a Hollywood Recording Session in 1969. I think there are some famous "Wrecking Crew" type players in there. Isn't that Earl Palmer on drums? Start naming 'em :)
UPDATE: I followed some links back from sites linking to this post and found out the following: They're actually recording an LP, not soundtrack music ( I think I can be forgiven for thinking that though), and it's The Plaster Caster Blues Band - ST (1969).
The personnel according to this site (who I assume took it from the liner notes) is Bobby Bryant (Trumpet), Arthur Adams (Guitar), Jules Chaiken (Vocals), Max Hardy (Drums), Gildo Mahones (Organ), Gildo Mahones (Piano), Gildo Mahones (Keyboards), Ellen Sander (Vocals), George Harmonica Smith (Harmonica), George Harmonica Smith, Clifford Solomon (Saxophone), Clifford Solomon (Tenor (Vocal), Bob Thiele (Producer)
For Deram DM 124, they kinda lost their way...for a bit. "Casino Royale" by Mike Redway. All I can say is that, in spots, he sounds like Viv Stanshall. Mike Redway released loads of records on Woolworth's budget Embassy label. I have to admit I am not totally positive this is DM 124, but I am pretty sure it is. Let's just move along.
"The feature-length documentary about mercurial frontman Arthur Lee and his proto-psychedelic rock band Love, will finally see a release on DVD later this summer on July 29."
"Produced and directed by first-time film makers Chris Hall & Mike Kerry, "Love Story," the film was originally shot in 2005 and '06 and had its world premiere at the 50th London Film Festival in October 2006 (its US premiere came in 2007 at the Los Angeles Film Festival, but never did find a regular theatrical release)."
