A wonderful day at Abbey Road in the company of producer James Reynolds as he oversaw a string session in Studio 2, led and arranged by master arranger Pete Whitfield. This was the last of three days’ work, all scheduled for vocal and instrumental contributions to the debut release on the Revival label.
Also in attendance was photographer and video maker Jonathan Stewart, a team from Close Up Productions, philanthropist Greg Perlman, entertaining vocalist Peyton, and the delightful Mustafa Gundogdu aka Mousse T – DJ and record producer – together with his charming partner, Khadra Sufi.
To mark the end of the main recording sessions, a drinks party had been arranged at a club in Golborne Road, Westbourne Park, where I had the pleasure of also meeting ace bassist Ernie McKone and superb singer, Mary Pearce. My thanks to James, Greg and everyone on hand for a memorable occasion.
