 Michael does have a point, as other than his reference to Tedesco, Pitman is the name of the course taken by mostly young women to become shorthand typists, with all those squiggly lines.

I wonder if there was a member of the wrecking crew named Pitman, or was it that later to be proved a nut job Spector just being ironic.....

A-HA......found it Bill Pitman was an electric bassist and guitarist in The Wrecking Crew, and he was born in 1920, so he's actually 96 years old......way to go Bill.

Quote: "......Indeed, when Spector produced the enormously popular record "Be My Baby" in 1963, he named the jam session on the flip side "Tedesco and Pitman," after two of his favorite guitar players: Tommy Tedesco and Bill Pitman......."

 Actually, I believe they're referring to session guitarist Tommy Tedesco.

 help us if the only thing this record is remembered for is an appearance in an 80's movie. Myself, I like to think of it as the record that almost made Brian Wilson crash his car when he first heard and spurred him to keep pressing on.

 A-side may have been featured in the movie, but was not included on the soundtrack album.
