He had countless hit records. You never heard of him.

Hal Blaine, the behind-the-scenes heartbeat of over 40 #1 hits, has died at 90. Many records by 1960s and 1970s artists were secretly recorded by session musicians and singers.

Many of the families in my community had boats (some even private planes) and summer homes. If one of my classmates received a ...
