Yes and most of us do not know it.  I love articles about the  "Wrecking Crew."  Truly phenomenal musicians. 


Great documentary as well!

Thanks, DJ, for the mention-in-passing.  My wife sent me this notification from The Washington Post.

NB:  Both articles go on to highlight the dramatic opening to one of my all-time favorite pop songs. "Mr. Blaine was perhaps best known for his drumming on the 1963 Ronettes single Be My Baby  which begins with a powerful boom ba-boom chack  bass-and-snare phrase. Produced and co-written by Spector, the song was ranked No. 22 on Rolling Stones list of the 500 Greatest Songs and was described by Wilson as the greatest record ever produced."
