If You Would Like to Hear This Record

Because of various problems with public blogs and rights problems, I have decided to take my blog and convert it to a private email. If you’d like to listen to this album (and more) or any other album I am posting here, just send me your email address at radiovickers1@gmail.com and I will put you on my list. Along with this album, I have a gigantic archive of my vinyl digitizations that gets added to every week. I do them myself and de-click them. Most sound pretty darned good, if I do say so myself.
This is not some come on. Just caution on my part. It costs nothing and there’s nothing to join. Just an email address. I have about a hundred people on my list at the moment. Come and join the musical fun.

Hilly Michaels was a New York based session drummer, who performed on the Sparks “Big Beat” album in 1976, which was produced by Rupert Holmes. Michaels was the only session musician to go on the North American tour with Ron Mael and Russell Mael of the Sparks

In 1979, Jake Hooker worked with Hilly Michaels to capture a million dollar deal with Warner Bros. Records and a MTV video to promote Calling All Girls in 1980 with Roy Thomas Baker as the producer. He was in a relationship with Marianne Faithfull during the mid-1980s when they lived together in NYC, from where in 1985 Faithfull entered the Hazelden Foundation to end her heroin addiction.
