  1. Add: "Boots"- Reprise 2/66

  2. Where did you read that Jim was on this record? He's not on the AFM contract for the title track at least...thanks!!

  3. In Crawdaddy magazine April '76 writer Alan Ross
    did an article called "Session Man". He talks to
    Jim Gordon."Jim Gordon is the classic session drummer. He started out twelve years ago playing
    with Dino,Desi&Billy,played on Nancy Sinatra's
    "These Boots Are Made for Walking"ect. There are
    some great words from Jim about why he likes being a session drummer and that he had just did
    Van Morrison's new album, but they canned it.

  4. Add: Dino,Desi and Billy -"I'm A Fool" Reprise from '65. Jim gets a credit on the back liner notes.

  5. Jim Gordon quote from "Sounds" Sept.18,'71:

    "My first hit I guess was "These Boots Are Made For Walking",you remember that by Nancy Sinatra?"

  6. Cool! I wonder why he's not on the contract for that session?
