Sound City and Real to Reel

Sound City and Real to Reel Empty Sound City and Real to Reel

Post by GloriousEmpire Thu 30 May 2013, 9:59 pm

Out on holiday I happened to catch the Sound City documentary movie, commemorating the closure of the legendary San Pornando Valley studio where so many legendary albums were crafted before the digital recording age put an end to the art of tape splice recording.

The movie features a collaborative original sound track "Real to Reel" comprising a diverse range of musical legends and includes the Helter Skelter/American Woman-esque "Cut me Some Slack" put together by the ex-Nirvana remnants Dave Grohl, Pat Smear, Krist Novoselic and remaining Beatle Paul McCartney. Fabulous stuff.

The movie and sound track had passed me by and I wondered if any one else had missed this little gem too and might appreciate the shout out. My personal fave on the album is Centipede by mostly Queens of The Stone Age, which evokes a peculiar image of electronic-era Radiohead produced ahead of the digital transition. Staggering.
