BBC Four – Masters Of Pop
A fantastic new 3 part series Masters Of Pop started on the BBC4 recently, narrated by Nile Rodgers, this is a guide to the role of the music producer. Lamont Dozier, responsible for the Motown sound, features, as does my personal favourite producer Joe Meek, 60s genius and master of the overdub. A full in depth and technical demonstration by Tony Visconti into how he created, with David Bowie, “Heroes”! This shows not just Visconti’s ingenuity but Bowie’s visionary brilliance. RIP.
