  • THIS BRILLIANT COMPILATION WAS PRODUCED BY THE LATE HAL

  • WILLNER, WHO WAS AN ABSOLUTE MUSICAL GENIUS AND SOMEONE VERY

  • CLOSE TO ALL OF US HERE AT THE "LATE LATE SHOW."

  • OUR HEARTS BROKE WHEN HAL DIED OF COMPLICATIONS FROM COVID-19

  • IN APRIL.

  • ( LAUGHTER ) NOW, AS I MENTIONED EARLIER, YOU

  • WORKED WITH THE PRODUCER HAL WILLNER ON THIS PROJECT.

  • HOW DID YOU MEET HAL AND WHAT DID HIS FRIENDSHIP MEAN TO YOU

  • BOTH?

  • >> HAL WAS A LEGENDARY FIGURE IN THE NEW YORK MUSIC SCENE.

  • I THINK WE MET HIM FIRST THROUGH REED.

  • HE'S SORT OF BEEN AROUND.

  • HE SORT OF WAS LIKE A FIXTURE OF NEW YORK CULTURE, AND, YOU KNOW,

  • HE HAD A REALLY BROAD UNDERSTANDING OF MUSIC.

  • HE WAS LIKE A MUSICAL ENCYCLOPEDIA.

  • HE WAS THE MUSIC DIRECTOR FOR THE SKITS OF "SATURDAY NIGHT

  • LIVE" SINCE I WAS AROUND.

  • SO HE WAS AN AMAZING COMPOSER OF COMEDY MUSIC BUT HE PRODUCED

  • RECRDS FOR MARIAN FAITHFUL AND LOU REED.

  • I GOT TO PLAY GUITAR ON MARION FAITHFUL'S ALBUM THANKS TO HAL,

  • AND I WAS IN OBSCURE SIDE PROJECTS WITH HIM.

  • WE WOULD DO IMPROV BANDS AND STEVE BUSCEMI DOING SPOKEN WORD

  • POETRY, REALLY ODD, OFF-KILTER STUFF.

  • AND HE WAS REALLY FUN AND OPEN TO EXPLORING NEW AVENUES.

  • AND HE WAS REALLY FUN AND OPEN TO EXPLORING NEW AVENUES.

  • >> HE WAS SPOTIFY BEFORE SPOTIFY.

  • HE HAD THE MOST OBSCURE REFERENCES.

  • LIKE IRANIAN FUNK AND LITHUANIAN DISCO.

  • >> HE WOULD SEND PLAY LISTS FROM HIS PHONE OF LITHUANIAN PORN

  • MUSIC.

  • ( LAUGHTER ) HAVE YOU HEARD THIS ITALIAN MIME

  • COMPOSURE, HE ONLY MAKES ALBUMS WITH SEWING MACHINES, AND REALLY

  • WEIRD STUFF.

  • >> James: I KIND OF WANT TO HEAR THAT ALBUM NOW.

  • YOU'RE PERFORMING THE SINGLE "MAMBO SUN" BY T. REX.

  • EXPLAIN WHY T. REX AND MARC BOLAN ARE SO INFLUENCE TOLL THE

  • MUSIC WORLD.

  • >> IT'S VERY DEBATED WHETHER HIM OR BOWIE CREATED GLAM ROCK.

  • I THINK HE AND LILL RICHARD DID.

  • HE WAS VERY INFLUENTIAL.

  • >> PEOPLE WONDER WHAT HE WOULD HAVE DONE.

  • HE OBVIOUSLY HAD BIG HITS COVERED IN THE 80s by power

  • station.

  • SO HE'S KNOWN BUT HE BASICALLY DIED EARLY, SO HE COULD HAVE

  • DONE SO MUCH MORE WORK, AND HAL WAS A HUGE FAN OF HIS AND, YOU

  • KNOW, WE BOTH WERE BIG FANS, SO HAL WAS NICE ENOUGH TO LET US

  • SING ON THE RECORD.

  • >> YOU DID A BOOK REPORT ON UP WITH OF HIS POETRY BOOKS, RIGHT?

  • >> THAT'S A LITTLE EMBARRASSING.

  • I WENT TO ONE OF THOSE HIPPIE SCHOOLS AND DID A BOOK REPORT ON

  • MARC BOLAN'S POETRY BOOK CALLED "THE WAR LOCK OF LOVE" WHICH IS

  • ALSO MY NICKNAME FOR MY DOWNSTAIRS BITS.

  • ( LAUGHTER ) >> James: THE ALBUM IS
