Many years ago when Victor Feldman was in The Tom Scott band, which played in Southern California a lot, I would have talks with Feldman. He was friendly and nice. Once I asked him if Miles Davis really anything had to do with writing the song Seven Steps to Heaven, a song on a Davis album with the same title. Victor just smiled and didn't comment.

Also nice seeing Bobby Troup. He was in 3 Perry Mason episodes, and I've seen two of them in the last week (one with Martha Vickers and one with Barney Kessell).

Insightful review which seems almost as ahead-of-the-curve as its subject, Allhallowsday...

I realize it's probably a stretch as long as the Cahulawassee but I wonder if John Boorman heard the electronica and bluegrass banjo mashup prior or during the production of DELIVERANCE:

You apparently found merit in my remark regarding influence of music and film artists. Who knows who composed Electronica in DELIVERANCE, but it's an interesting juxtaposition with banjo... but are they together...? "Ruby" is probably the best track on APPLES' 2nd album.

Yes, and even when I can't relate to the music being reviewed, the writing style's always interesting.

No, Allhallowsday, I don't think the two are ever together. It's the idea of featuring those disparate instruments within the same soundtrack.
As to the electronica in DELIVERANCE, it's John Boorman's synthesizer - possibly programmed by Paul Beaver - if I had to guess. (Beaver and Boorman previously collaborated on "POINT BLANK".)

Cool, I remember "Dueling Banjos"... and that throbbing creepy score... I had looked it up, probably BOORMAN.
