CinematiCA #189 / SPECIALE LES REED

In questo episodio: uno SPECIALE dedicato alla carriera di Les Reed (1935-2019), musicista, session payer, arrangiatore, direttore d’orchestra, band leader ed autore di tantissime hits musicali tra il 1964 e la fine degli anni Settanta! Dagli esordi con John Barry Seven alle produzioni strumentali per la Piccadilly Records, fino ai successi su Decca, Fontana e Columbia con Applejacks, Kathy Kirby, The Fortunes, Lulu, Herman’s Hermits, Tom Jones ed Engelbert Humperdinck; le versioni italiane dei suoi brani con Little Tony e Mal, stranezze dal suo catalogo discografico come i novelty records con Frazer Hines; e ancora i successi per Des O’Connor e Mireille Mathieu, le colonne sonore per il cinema – lo score cult per Girl on a motocicli del 1968 – e i temi per i jingle e la radio…
