...and the award is presented to:
RICHARD FINCH - PRODUCER / ARRANGER
A Slice of History...
Young TK Records prodigy Richard Finch was 17 or 18 when this picture was taken in 1972. He'd already logged LOTS of studio engineering and recording hours at TK before this photo was even snapped. Rick also played bass in a country/western band prior to forming 'KC and the Sunshine Band' with warehouse worker, H.W. Casey.
Casey stated in copy from a 'KC and the Sunshine Band' tour program: "Rick is an electronics genius. To be his age and to know what he knows and to do what he's done is amazing and unique." Casey also goes on to say in a TK Records press kit from March 27, 1976 that,
"Rick was accepted in the studio faster than I was."
Isn't it nice to read positive, truthful press for a change?
Updates...More news coming soon... in the meantime, enjoy the music!!!
*************************It is an undisputed fact that Richard Finch IS perhaps one of the most talented music producers/arrangers/innovators of the 20th Century. Moving into the 21st Century, that gift never wavered. The proof is in the countless finished productions and in the THREE first round ballot Grammy Award nominations Rick received in 2010.
Hundreds of songs were produced in the Production Kitchen in Ohio in less than three years time - artists young and old, from the USA and from other countries - ALL hoping Rick would put his signature sound on their music. They were never disappointed with the final product.
What's playing is just a sample - we'll be rotating songs in and out, so be sure to visit often!
A noteworthy accomplishment!
Congratulations to Rick Finch, for being the Co-Writer / Producer of 'BOOGIE SHOES' - a song on one of the
10 BEST SELLING ALBUMS OF ALL TIME! - 40 Million Copies Sold... SO FAR!!!
