|Van Dyke Parks
Rob Pemberton recently wrote to Van Dyke Parks regarding Rylander efforts to compile a complete list of all Ry's guest appearances on record over the years. For your reading pleasure - here is his gracious reply!
There's no Ry Cooder playing on Song Cycle. He played on the recently produced "Doctor of Rock and Roll" tribute album to Lowell George however, on a song called "Trouble", sung by Lowell's daughter Inara and with strings arranged by me. It was a lot of fun just sitting down and playing with Ry once again. If you want to find how to get a copy (I don't have one myself) you could call the attorney who threw the project together: David Helfant 310 821-9000. Maybe he would help.
I'd love to read all about your effort when/if the results are made public. Is it on a web site? Please advize.
Thanks for letting me know about "Colours". I'm thinking about including it on my web site (what a transition!) at: http://www.brerwabbit.com/parks
With four kids, you gotta be busy! So thanks for taking time out for Ry as he's the last to toot his own horn. Your results will fill quite a void.
For details of the album, see Van Dyke's own site at page http://www.brerwabbit.com/parks/songcycl.htm© 1968 Warner Brothers
