Yes it was done for the soundtrack.
Avatar Sat. 7/4/15 12:03pm Marc Francis:

4 songs = ep in my head.
Avatar Sat. 7/4/15 12:04pm pim:

An EP (short for extended play) is a musical recording that contains more music than a single, but is usually too short to qualify as a full studio album or LP. - wiki
Avatar Sat. 7/4/15 12:07pm David Shortell:

Boyce and Hart also wrote a song for the previous Matt Helm flick (Murderers' Row) called ""If You're Thinkin' What I'm Thinkin'".
It's performed by Dean Martin's son's group, "Dino, Desi & Billy"!

I enjoy Saranac Ginger Beer in my Dark & Stormy's.
  Sat. 7/4/15 12:13pm noel:

Goya is a decent American one but Idris "fiery" is best.
  Sat. 7/4/15 12:13pm art:

"Ginger Apple Cider" by Aaron Burr Cidery (local to Hudson Valley) makes a dry natural version of ginger beer. A bit pricey, but it's not sweet at all, about 8% alc. and tastes like ginger beer before America grew back their baby teeth (or obsession w/ sweets.)
  Sat. 7/4/15 12:15pm Stefan Dz:

Ginger beer? Have you ever tried plain old Goya Ginger Beer? One of its active ingredients is capsacin, the chemical extract from chili peppers them their heat. It's thirst quenching but it has a strong bite distinctive from European style ginger beers. Highly recommended for a hot summer day.
  Sat. 7/4/15 12:16pm Stefan Dz:

That should have read "that gives them their heat."
Avatar Sat. 7/4/15 12:19pm drewo:

Jacco Gardner and his band played an excellent set this past week here in Tucson. The band did a nice job replicating the baroque psych pop stylings of his new disc 'Hypnophobia'. Heady stuff.

show sounding great Mike!
  Sat. 7/4/15 12:25pm Tom from Detroit:

Put that wig hatON yo heayad now baby!
  Sat. 7/4/15 12:28pm dennis diken:

this version of "Desiree" is blowing my mind! love the original, never heard the remake, and by the same group. very cool!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 7/4/15 12:28pm Artie Haywire:

Great show, Mike!
  Sat. 7/4/15 12:35pm fredr:

Always a great show Mike. Pleasure to hear you again. Happy 4th!!

Reed's ginger beer is good. Available at Trader Joe's.
  Sat. 7/4/15 12:40pm Tom from Detroit:

I love that johnny hurricane@ star club live version of sneakers. I think it might have been you mike that got me hip to that one....
Avatar    Sat. 7/4/15 12:44pm Snortley:

Yes, Reed's. Made with lots of natural ingredients. Many different versions and flavors. I like to make shandy by mixing Red Stripe with their Raspberry Brew.
  Sat. 7/4/15 12:48pm fredr:

You can really appreciate what a great guitarist Syd Barrett was in this song.
  Sat. 7/4/15 12:50pm Stuart Rose:

And what a melody make ole' Syd was.
How many songs were we deprived of when Syd wandered off.
Avatar Sat. 7/4/15 12:52pm David Shortell:

I believe David Gilmour was the guitarist on that Rick Wright song.
  Sat. 7/4/15 12:54pm fredr:

I stand corrected David. It was the flip side of Julia Dream which was sung by D Gilmour. Sorry for that!
  Sat. 7/4/15 12:55pm Stuart Rose:

Yikes, I think you're right, David.
This isn't a Syd song, and the atmospheric guitar does sound like Gilmore's typical sound.
  Sat. 7/4/15 12:58pm Stuart Rose:

Yikes, David, you're right. Always in the mood to give Syd credit. It did have that Gilmour guitar sound, spare and dreamy.

Didn't Wright also pen San Tropez?Another mellow beauty.
  Sat. 7/4/15 12:59pm P-90:

Thanks, Mike Sin! Catch you on the flipside!
Avatar Sat. 7/4/15 1:00pm drewo:
