Wow, check out this footage of the great Andrew Lood Oldham as he oversees recording by the fantastic Vashti Bunyun recording her "Winter is Blue" from the 1967 documentary Tonight Let's Make Love In London. Yes, that is the legendary producer/engineer Glyn Johns working the board. What an embarrassment of riches!

Today is the birthday of Beach Boy Dennis Wilson who would have been 65 this year if not for his accidental drowning in 1983. Here is his beautiful "Barbara" recorded in 1971 but not released until after his death on the Beach Boys' rarities collection Endless Harmony. It's been said that this recording was unfinished; that one of the two piano parts was a guide track for strings to be later added.
