Name any important artist or producer and Jack Nitzsche probably worked with them at some point during a career that spanned four decades and literally thousands of sessions.
Every facet of Nitzsches glittering career is incorporated here, from songwriter (Needles And Pins) to collaborator with the Rolling Stones, from recording artist in his own right to Oscar-winning soundtrack composer.
More than half of the tracks selected have never been on CD before and the booklet contains a wealth of never-publicly-seen images, provided especially for this project by Jack Nitzsches son, Jack Jr, plus full, freshly researched notes from Mick Patrick who has interviewed a large number of those connected to this project.
From the moody beach stomp of "The Lonely Surfer" through to the complex string charts of the James Gang's "Ashes, The Rain and I", by way of Doris Day, The Righteous Brothers and Tim Buckley; this is a stunning collection.
I've been making my own Jack Nitzsche compilations for years now and it's great to finally have these hard-to-find tracks in true sonic fidelity.
Shame they couldn't have used Buffalo Springfield's ethereal "Expecting to Fly" but, kudos to Mick Patrick and Martin Roberts, there is a list of all the tracks they couldn't use (but would've liked to) at the end of the detailed booklet, which, apart from rare photographs and session logs, boasts testimonials from the likes of Marianne Faithfull, Judy Henske and Andrew Loog Oldham.
This disc will be driving my hiphop neighbours to distraction from this point onwards. Any chance of a volume 2? With room for Lou Christie's "If My Car Could Only Talk"??
