  • "James Bond on Electric Guitar" CD review

    FYI in case anyone's interested:

    Review from Vintage Guitar Magazine out in May:
    “Following two excellent volumes of spaghetti western themes, Lou Pecci shows he’s as comfortable with John Barry compositions as with Ennio Morricone’s, and as deft on overdubbed electrics as previously on gut-strings. His own “Black Path” would make Vic Flick, the late Bond guitarist, smile. No doubt, whatever genre he tackles next will be equally fun and creative.” – Dan Forte - "(c) Dan Forte; all rights reserved. From Vintage Guitar, July 2014."

    And you're Lou? Very, very groovy accolades indeed. Bravo!
    Every paint-stroke takes you farther and farther away from your initial concept. And you have to be thankful for that. Wayne Thiebaud

            Hmmm... I dunno... maybe co-influence.

            Rock and roll predates the James Bond movies, bubbling up through the 50's and coming to a head in '56/'57. Distorted single and double stop lead guitar was well-established in the blues and the burgeoning surf rock scene was coming on strong by 1961, a full year before the first James Bond flick, Dr. No, came out in the UK and two years before it was released in the US (May '63).

            If anything, the familiar James Bond guitar signature is more a response to the then-hot surf rock sound.

            Of course, the sub-genre of biker movie themes basically fits under the surf-rock instrumental umbrella -- and all of it, of course, was a big influence on the sound of 'psychedelic' and acid rock lead guitar sounds and riffing.
