Gerry McGee in the Recording Studio

Bonnie Bramlett, Johnny Sandlin and Walter, Jr. Join Pat Mire On His Latest Film Project

6 September 2010

The phenomenal Bonnie Bramlett, a member of Delaney & Bonnie & Friends in the late 60’s and early 70’s, recently joined Lafayette singer-songwriter Walter, Jr., in the studio of legendary recording engineer and producer Johnny Sandlin for Pat Mire’s latest film project, “Sushi and Sauce Piquante,” on the life and music of guitar virtuoso Gerry McGee. Sandlin, one of those responsible for the Southern Rock sound of the Allman Brothers Band and others in the 1970’s while at Capicorn Records, recorded Ms. Bramlett and Walter, Jr. performing a powerful version of Walter, Jr.’s “Back On The Bayou Road.” Gerry, who played lead guitar on Delaney & Bonnie & Friends’ “Accept No Substitute” in 1969, added his own rousing guitar tracks to the piece, resulting in a bluesy collaboration that, no doubt, will be a musical highlight of the film. Production on the film continues into the fall and through the winter, with filming planned in Los Angeles, Seattle, Lafayette and New Orleans.
