Carly Simon - Boys in the Trees

Carly Simon - Boys in the Trees.  The list of musicians and player who do NOT play on this record would be shorter than the one that shows who does play on it.  I swear, everyone but Franz Liszt and John Bonham are on this record.  It's a nice album cover and suits her and the music.  This record was produced by - Arif Mardin.  Here is more on him.  It is my hunch that he was good friends with - or at least had to know - Ahmet Ertegun.  He is from Istanbul, born March 15, 1932 – New York, June 25, 2006, was a Turkish-American music producer, who worked with hundreds of artists across many different styles of music, including jazz, rock, soul, disco, and country. He worked at Atlantic Records for over 30 years, as both an assistant, producer, arranger, studio manager, and vice president, before moving to EMI and serving as vice president and general manager of Manhattan Records.  Mardin's collaborations include working with Queen, The Bee Gees, Anita Baker, Aretha Franklin, Bette Midler, Laura Branigan, Chaka Khan, Scritti Politti, Phil Collins, Daniel Rodriguez, Norah Jones, Richard Marx, Culture Club and Jewel. Mardin was awarded 11 Grammy Awards.
