Here’s a photo from July 6, 1965 in Studio A at the Capitol Records Tower. I’m wearing an outfit that I designed and made, a 2-piece Pink Polka Dot bell bottom pants and top. Pictured, from extreme left: Al DeLory on organ; me; Tommy Tedesco, guitar; Billy Strange, guitar; Don Randi, keyboard; mystery man, bass. Anyone know who the mystery man is? **Thank you, Cliff Adams for recognizing the great Bill Pitman on bass.
This session included the following recordings: Smokey Joe’s (released 11/65), That’s The Boy (finally released as part of a compilation in 2009) and four other unreleased tracks, all produced by Steve Douglas. Arrangers for the session were Billy Strange and the legendary Jack Nitzsche.
Here’s the same outfit today:
