WMFU DJ Irwin Chusid
has put together a tribute website to music producer Tom Wilson
. Wilson was born in 1931 and died young at 47 in 1978. Among the musicians he worked with: Sun Ra, Cecil Taylor, Bob Dylan, Simon & Garfunkel, Pete Seeger, The Mothers of Invention, The Velvet Underground, Nico, Gil-Scott Heron, and Professor Longhair. Some of his notable and more far-out productions
, include the Bob Dylan "Like a Rolling Stone" session which was the subject of the much repeated Al Kooper organ riff anecdote
. He had been president of Harvard's Young Republican club, graduated Harvard cum laude, and was African-American
. He was also friends with Wally "Famous" Amos
, and it was through Wilson, that Amos, at the time an agent at William Morris, came to represent Simon & Garfunkel.

In 1966 the Tifton Record Company's efforts to cash in on the popularity of the Batman TV show resulted in the release of an LP called Batman and Robin
. Though the jacket credited “The Sensational Guitars of Dan and Dale”, the musicians were in fact members of Sun Ra’s Solar Arkestra
and The Blues Project
. The wonderful folks at WFMU
have made this unlikely collaboration's wonderfully infectious music available
for your downloading pleasure. Very fun, lively stuff, with a warm and rollicking sound. I've fallen in love with it.
