Rest in peace Phil Ramone. There's not enough room to list all his producing and engineering achievements but the two lps that probably get the most play on my turntable are the two James Bond soundtracks he produced: Casino Royale (1967) and On Her Majesty's Secret Service.
Rest in peace Hugh McCracken. He was the primary guitarist on The Archies recording sessions. He also played on Paul McCartney's best solo album, Ram, and sessions for John Lennon, Dr. John, Gordon Lightfoot, Jimmy Rushing, Roland Kirk, Roberta Flack, B. B. King, The Monkees, Paul Simon, Art Garfunkel, Phoebe Snow, Bob Dylan, Eric Carmen, Loudon Wainwright III, Lou Donaldson, Aretha Franklin, The Four Seasons, Hall & Oates, Hank Crawford, Jerry Jemmott and Gary Wright.
Forever on the wall in The Original Soundtrack Studio: the soundtrack album to the film Candy, one of the greatest vinyl slabs of cinematic psychedelia. Original score composed by Dave Grusin. Theme song, "Child of The Universe", by The Byrds, with cosmic, celestial string and horn embellishment from Grusin. Roger McGuinn and John York of The Byrds add electric guitar and bass guitar to Grusin's score cues as well. Plus "Rock Me" and "Magic Carpet Ride" by Steppenwolf.
