DON'T YOU JUST KNOW IT / RIP HAL BLAINE — (1929-2019)
« Last post by Admin on March 11, 2019, 05:03:15 PM »
HAL BLAINE — Legendary drummer and Wrecking Crew member Hal Blaine has passed away at age 90. He was one of the most popular, and most recorded, drummers of all time. What a legacy, and what a life. This one hits close to home. Hal—along with the great Earl Palmer—played on most of Jan Berry’s sessions for Jan & Dean in the ‘60s. He also served as contractor for Jan’s sessions, and had a role—both speaking and playing—in Jan & Dean’s 1966 television pilot “On the Run.” Hal and Jan were close personal friends who socialized together outside of the studio. Hal was 12 years his senior and very much like an older brother to Jan. Hal was devastated by Jan’s 1966 life-changing automobile accident. He spent a lot of time at Jan’s bedside, and played on all of Jan’s post-accident recordings, beginning with the first “Carnival of Sound” related sessions in 1967. I am grateful that I got a chance to interview Hal. He was always gracious and loved to talk about his time with Jan, and Jan’s influence on his career. Hal called me after receiving a copy of my book The Jan & Dean Record, and I was truly thankful for his enthusiastic support of the project. Thanks for the music, Hal. Rest easy, my friend. You had a long and productive life, and we are all the richer for it. “Here we go . . . Top, fellas!” – Mark A. Moore, Author of The Jan & Dean Record

Yep, Jan would do it over and over again until he either got it where he wanted it, or would slap it on as album filler and come back to finish it later.  That's what happened with DMC; Jan wanted to keep working on it, but he needed to submit a completed album so he put the earlier version on the Drag City lp and then kept working on it for a single release.  NGIS has a more convoluted history but there are three completed versions.  There are two versions of (HTC)FAOTW and two versions of YRKHTHAG.   I know Jan worked on Popsicle and Hot Stocker again around '65.  Dean, PF Sloan & Artie Kornfeld have all said something to the effect that the technological limitations they faced in mixing AAACSCBRATA down for radio airplay diminished that record, so Jan also faced limitations but I think he had to balance these things more.  Trying to work with everything that went into his musical career while pursuing a medical degree meant he sometimes had to round out albums or submit singles that weren't everything they could be, and letting matters that weren't going to yield sufficient results (like remixing AAACSCBRATA) go if he was going to achieve what he knew needed to happen.
