I thought it had been done before but couldn't find the thread.

The name probably won't mean anything to anybody but Rayge and Muskrat, but I was reminded yesterday that the label on The Standells' classic garage punk 45 "Dirty Water" says "Arranged by Lincoln Mayorga".

Ian Stewart piano on Led Zeppelin's "Rock And Roll".
People go on too much about the privileged background of politicians but actually Matt Hancock had a very humble upbringing in an Italian workshop owned by a woodworker named Geppetto who turned him into a human boy.

The connection is Ed Cobb; Mayorga had been the Four Preps’ pianist and musical director ( and a Hollywood High classmate).

He also played piano on Cobb’s production, Ketty Lester’s Love Letters (also Tainted Love, for that matter).

Also the Piltdown Men and the deceptively named Link-Eddy Combo.

Mayorga went on to work behind the scenes with a Disney for years, and later became a “pops” orchestra conductor.

And that’s without reading the Wikipedia entry!

You never disappoint, Muskrat.

I knew most of that, including that Mayorga played on "Love Letters" - but I never knew Cobb produced that! Great record.

Going by comments made by the Standells about the "Dirty Water" session (as quoted on THEIR Wiki page), I wonder if Mayorga was even really there, or if he just had some kind of deal with Cobb at the time where he got credit on stuff Cobb did. Even before reading the Standells' comments I wondered how much LM could have really done on that record, beyond maybe suggesting the drum groove or the harmonica break or something.

Surprising only inasmuch as this is the first time I've seen him credited!

It's him, honest!



"So when Led Zeppelin borrowed the Stones’ mobile recording studio in early ’71, Stewart drove it to them personally. And then Zep had Stewart play the very funky keyboard part on “Rock and Roll.”

In interviews with Brad Tolinski, Jimmy Page explained why it wasn’t a big deal for John Paul Jones. “He had no problem letting Stu play piano on ‘Rock and Roll,'” Page said. “When you have the chance to use a master of a specific style, you just step back and enjoy what comes out.”

He also recorded "Boogie With Stu" on the same day.

I think that was the deal, yes.
