  1. Said to be Andy Warhol’s favorite movie. I watched it on YouTube and LOVED the eerie soundtrack. He had to do this stuff orchestrally. I don’t think synths were used in movie soundtracks in 1962. Ahead of its time. It turns out Kay was nominated a few times for Oscars in the 1940’s. There is a large credit in the film. I’m not sure what it refers to. Electronic Harmonics by I.F.M. It’s a grade Z Sci-Fi flick w/ great sound effects & music. Maybe Blue Man Group got their costumes from this flick. There is an early scene w/ some humanoid dead ringers for them
  2. 2 original New Year’s songs. I post them every year. So here they are again. Happy New Year everybody and Bonne Année Bonne Annee ! Here’s To Your Health (Who Knows where we might all end up tomorrow?)
  3. D-18, D-28 are famous for Bluegrass. As for me, I’d want a J-45 or J-15 in that order. . You’ve got to find one that sounds right and they’re not really Bluegrass guitars. I always wanted a J-45 though.
  4. Nothing new from me. There won’t be for awhile. Here’s one I posted a while back. Probably my my best guitar playing ever. Too bad I drown it. out w/ my clumsy piano playing. It’s called PARK THE CAR i’ll be Back to review everyone’s later on.
  5. It would be in the Lieber and Stoller or early Atlantic catalogue — definitely in mono. This one always got my vote. This is my Abby Road. There is so damned much happening here. You year every Note, every voice, every beat and it’s all perfect.
  6. Transcribing some James Bond theme songs to Jazzmaster & classical guitar. (Moonraker, Thunderball, From Russia With Love, You Only Live Twice). Basically soft Bossa Nova style w/ Jazzmaster as melodic instrument in lower register. String pad in background - of course.
  7. A tad younger than 82. I do own a Jazzmaster though w/ 65 style pick-ups - if that’s a clue. They are a thing again from what I understand.
  8. I love the Bakersfield songs & records. But listening to a Telecaster bridge pickup today is like driving an ice-pick into my brain.
  9. You got better recordings than I did - back in the day w/ that thing. That’s a good recording. I remember buying my MMT8 new and trying to reload sequences in it w/ a tape cassette. That was before Alesis came out w/ a disk drive for the machines. 64k barely gave you enough data for a song - let alone a full live set. The HR-16 was pretty loaded w/ useful loops though.
  10. You made good use of it. Alas, I have no recordings I made w/ mine. Ha! I was wrong. I found one. You May recognize a stock loop I embellished upon. BOSSA PARISIENNE
  11. Alesis HR-16 I used it side-by-side w/ its sibling the MMT 8 sequencer. What fun it was back in the day. Kawai K-1 &US- made Ovation acoustic-electric guitar. There was nothing I couldn’t do.
  12. IDunno - really fine guitar playing. Nothing from me for awhile unless I post one of my oldies. Sorry.
  13. I have no idea why. I just know every time I listen to stuff like this, it’s easy to for me to get really bored 99% of Records from the Beatles to the present. Lieber and Stoller hammer another nail into the coffin of modern music.
  14. I'll be watching the prices of US-made Ovations, new & used. I've been wanting one.
  15. Great article. I'm glad to hear about this. I've been using MIDI since before the GM1 standard was established. It rarely gets the credit it's due. I saw in the late 80's that MIDI could be the most liberating technology in the history of music. IMO, it has lived up to the hype. So I'm always happy to hear musicians give MIDI the short shrift.
