NPR Music has an appreciation of guitarist Billy Strange, a session man famous for his work with the Wrecking Crew, who died February 22.
Remembering Billy Strange, Ace Session Guitarist
Our catalog makes it easy to find recordings that Strange played on. Not only does our catalog list the named performers on CDs, i.e. Speedy West and Jimmy Bryant on Swingin' on the Strings. Volume 2 (CD 18256), it also includes songwriters, producers, backing musicians and other named contributors when the information is available. So if you're researching recordings that include a particular producer or sideman, you can find it in our catalog even if the CD wasn't under their own name.
