I caught a few minutes of a tv docu. on the Carpenters. Les Paul/Mary Ford cited as one of Richard C's influences in his arranging and an old clip was shown of Les & Mary both playing guiars with
swan's-neck type vocal mikes coming direcly out of the guitars. One of Les's inventione that didn't catch on, I suspect. OK while seated but cumbersome if moving around, I guess!

Cor,talk about yankee know-how,eh?
Is there anything he didn't think up?
Mary's guitar playing looked flashy as well.
On a related subject-did you hear the BBCR2 prog on backing singers by one of Diane E's nemeses at 10.30 am last Saturday? If not,it might be worth catching it on Listen Again.
