Might be interesting to post these examples as we come across them.
I was pleased to see Ralph Humphrey credited as one of the percussionists on the soundtrack to Stephen King's I.T (Richard Bellis)

I was quite surprised to hear Mike Keneally play on some tracks of Ulver's "Blood Inside" :shock:

And that list isn't even complete. I bought the Blade Runner Soundtrack on vinyl some months ago and found out he played synth on it.

Max Benett was one of the bass players and Shelly Manne was one of the percussionists on the soundtrack recordings for Rosemary's Baby

Max is 83, still plays great, I would recomend anything from his famous band LA Express with Tom Scott.

One of my most horrible vinyls is Shankar - The Epidemics featuring L. Shankar and Steve Vai.

Robbie Krieger's last solo album, Singularity, is like a Zappa reunion. It features Tommy Mars, Arthur Barrow, Vinnie Colaiuta, Sal Marquez, Walt Fowler, Bruce Fowler and/or Albert Wing on seven of its ten numbers.

Agreed. Very likely a candidate for the most horrible record of all time. I bought it and listened to it once when it came out and don't have the slightest intention to put it on ever again.

Bruce Fowler not only contributes to the soundtrack of Short Cuts as player and arranger, he actually appears in the movie (alongside Gene Estes) as part of the club band backing Annie Ross.

The Doors’ Robby Krieger Announces New Album, ‘The Ritual Begins at Sundown,’ a Collaboration with Frank Zappa Alumni (Preview with ‘The Drift’)
By Adrian Garro on February the 21st, 2020.

Robby Krieger is a legend, his riffs and work as a principal member of the Doors renowned for years — and on April the 24th, he’ll release his first new solo album in a decade.

The Ritual Begins at Sundown will be released via the Players Club/Mascot Label Group, and was announced on Friday. This will be Krieger’s ninth proper solo record and the first since Singularity, which was released in 2010.

For this record, Krieger worked with a host of musicians known for their work with Frank Zappa — namely, writing partner/producer Arthur Barrow, plus Jock Ellis (Trombone), Sal Marquez (Trumpet) and Tommy Mars (Keys) as well as AeB Bryne (Flute), Vince Denim (Sax), Chuck Manning (Sax), Chad Wackerman (Drums) and Joel Taylor (Drums).

That amazing ensemble of musicians coalesces on the track “The Drift,” a breezy, jazzy instrumental that was premiered along with the album news

“I was hanging out with my buddy Arthur Barrow and we had some songs we had been fooling around with then we got some other friends involved,” explained Robby Krieger in a statement about how this record came about.


The Ritual Begins at Sundown will feature 10 tracks, all of them instrumental, recorded at Krieger’s own Horse Latitudes Studio in Los Angeles — Krieger and the Zappa alumni even tackle the Zappa track “Chunga’s Revenge,” in addition to the other nine original compositions on the album.

If you haven’t yet, click here to read our recent feature on the Doors’ Ray Manzarek, including reflections from Krieger and drummer John Densmore.

Here’s the record’s track listing:

1. “What Was That?”
2. “Slide Home”
3. “The Drift”
4. “Chunga’s Revenge”
5. “Hot Head”
6. “Yes, The River Knows”
7. “The Hitch”
8. “Dr. Noir”
9. “Bianca’s Dream”
10. ‘Screen Junkies”

Will that be the Beefheart song, sandwiched in between the Zappa and Doors covers?
