Hal Blaine - Psychedelic Percussion (1967)
Hal Blaine is the most recorded drummer in musical history. He played on classics by Frank Sinatra (& Nancy), Elvis, Byrds, Love, Supremes, Beach Boys (all of Pet Sounds, Good Vibrations etc.) Simon and Garfunkel and everything Phil Spector did. He was the leader of the Wrecking Crew, consisting of the most active session musicians in Los Angeles during the fifties and sixties. A hip cat, in 1967 Blaine was tripping like everyone else. And this is trippy stuff! I'd say this record is a must listen for all the drummers out there, but it's certainly not everyone's cuppa tea. The album is out of print and is not available on CD.
I'M SORRY! This link is down. I'll ask my friend to upload it again now that I've lost my hard disk
