Clemente's Book From: Jimmy C ________________________________________________________________________ ________________________________________________________________________ Message: 1 Date: Tue, 19 Sep 2000 16:44:08 -0700 From: Carol Kaye Subject: from Perry Botkin I spoke to Perry about this (we converse quite a bit, especially lately when our mutual friend Lyle Ritz is in the LA for awhile), and here's his answers via email: >>>> I wonder if engineers calculated how many feet of splicing tape it would take to raise the pitch a 1/4 tone, etc. <<< Perry answered: 1 wrap of splicing tape (around the capstan) was a up 1/4 tone and one wrap of masking tape brought it up 1/2 tone. Awfully primitive but it worked. >>>>>>I think I have a fairly good idea of the role Botkin played in the production team of Botkin/Garfield, but I wonder what Gil Garfield's role was.<<<<< Perry's answer: In Botkin/Garfield productions Gil and I co-wrote music and lyrics for the songs and Perry arranged. Gil worked in the booth while I took care of the music in the studio. We worked together on the mixes. Carol Kaye http://www.carolkaye.com/ PS. To anyone in the LA area, Earl Palmer has a regular Thursday night jazz venue where quite a few of the jazz studio musicians (your truly included, playing jazz guitar again, fun!) come down to sit in at "Charlie O's", nice new jazz club on Victory Blvd., corner of Woodman, east (and safe) side of Van Nuys......8-12 every Thursday, no cover. Great club, good Italian food, comfortable and the finest come down to play. 2 miles east of the 405 (exit Victory) and 2 miles north of the 101 (exit Woodman). --------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------- Message: 2 Date: Tue, 19 Sep 2000 22:50:08 EDT From: Jimmy C Subject: Clemente's Book Thanks, Sheila! Looking forward to seeing it. Any truth to the rumor that the Victorians are really Darlene and company? I haven't ever seen a pic of them. And in reading the index of groups in the Clemente book (thanks, John. R.), I see the Secrets are not covered...? One of my favorites... oh well! Best, Jimmy C. --------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------- End
