  11:55am ccrides:

Sometimes I think that David wishes he was from a different generation???...hehehe...:)O(:...
  11:56am Mark Dillman:

Please ask Glyn Johns about working with Del Shannon. Del's album produced by Andrew Loog Oldham was originally planned for release with the title "Home & Away" but its released was delayed a whole DECADE before being released on a budget label entitled "And the Music Plays On". Fans of Del and Oldham belatedly recognized the brilliance of the songwriting, arrangements, and effective use of multi-tracking Del's voice on lead, harmony, and back-up throughout this album. On some tracks, Del's double track vocals are on top of each other in the center track, while others are separated on left & right tracks. Very effectively done.

Re: Glyn Johns early interest in Lonnie Donegan: First record I ever bought was Lonnie Donegan in 1961 when I was eight years old. "Does Your Chewing Gum Loose Its Flavor (on the Bedpost Overnight)?" on the Dot label.

Don Arden: Gene Vincent was a client in the UK. He mentioned Arden (once by name) in his later records. He bitterly detested the man.

Everyone who knew Joe Strummer raves about the guy.

the Arden story in the book involves a shot gun pointed at Glyn

The Glyn Johns conversation was great last week when I heard it. Jonathan Richman today the same, music played stellar too, as always. The Clash work was most surprisingly for Mr Johns.
