The previous post featured music by Alan Hawkshaw recorded for the Themes International Music library; he also composed and recorded for Bruton, KPM and perhaps a few other labels. More famously, he masterminded the Mohawks (of “Champ” fame) around 1968, changed the sound of the Shadows between 1968 and 1972, and acted as a musical director,  arranger and session musician for Serge Gainsbourg – e.g. on SG‘s masterpiece albumsHistoire de Melody Nelson(Philips 1971-03-24) and L’homme À Tête De Chou (Philips 1976-11-18).
