    Delaney and Bonnie Bramlett were my early favorites in that mad scramble of 1960s rock, with Clapton, Cocker and others all playing on each other's sessions. It was glorious stuff, the heyday where the music was still alive. Bonnie was terrific in "Momma, He Treats Your Daughter Mean," and my favorite from her is "Lay Down My Burden."



    Songwriter Dave Mason has seen his song become a rock standard covered by many performers to their great success. Here's his 1970 version. Lead guitar and drum work are in my opinion better than anyone else's, strongly reminiscent of the cross-pollination between the Brits and American rockers. There's a great midway departure from the expected riffs I find particularly good.

    I knew little of Dave Mason back in the day. It's taken me the long way around to totally appreciate him.

    Normally this would go under movies or TV but the subject is music and the amazing studio "session musicians" who saved the Beach Boys, the Monkees and hundreds more from the 1960s onward.

    Leon Russell and Glenn Campbell were among the members of a West Coast musical legend called the Wrecking Crew. Sinatra and dozens of top entertainers insisted on booking these mind-boggling performers who could play ANYTHING.

    The Wrecking Crew is absolutely terrific, a labor of love by a Crew member's son. Runs 103 min. Four stars.

    Occasionally hilarious, here and there heartbreaking (the ruins of a divorce)...and so much talent, love and respect for each other that they were truly the tight group of musicians so many turned to.

    This isn't to downplay the wonderfully-tight Atlanta Rhythm Section, or Muscle Shoals magic-makers. And I'd be nuts to forget the Michigan music heard around the world from MoTown's spectacular Funk Brothers.

    But song for song the Crew outnumbered everyone while they were active. And when former members made it big, they hired their old pals.

    Here's another music documentary well worth the time, about the recording studio Sound City.

    I was gonna say nice harmonica. Then I see at the end that Stevie Wonder accompanied on harmonica. That explains it.
