Scott Peets' Design FX Remote truck was used to record live performances by James Taylor and band for the soundtrack to Judd Apatow's current film, Funny People. “We spent a couple of days recording James Taylor at the Skirball Center [L.A.],” says Peets. “He and his band performed many of his hits. The song ‘Carolina on My Mind’ is featured in the movie. We also recorded the ‘jam segment’ for the film at Sony Studios.”…More live recording: Venezuelan funk-rock band Los Amigos Invisibles performed at the iTunes store in Downtown Manhattan as part of the Latin Alternative Music Conference.
