On this page we will post links and descriptions of our own playlists with Jay's music on Spotify. As most
of you know he has participated on sooooo many recordings over the years, as a session musician, producer, songwriter,
arranger, and more.
Not everything is available on Spotify, but we will create various playlists with selections from his very long and
multi-faceted career of what is currently out there on Spotify. The lists will also be announced
on his Facebook page as we make them public.
There is so much to discover, e.g. so many songs over the years that you probably did not know he played on.
For the full discography plus more details about each track, see
the Jay Graydon Discography
(alphabetical pages) and/or the Jay Graydon Recording Sessions
Jay's song catalogue is noted in full here with all of
the corresponding releases.
Again, please note, these playlists are far from complete as regards Jay's work in full, since not everything is up
and running on Spotify. For instance, the Steve Kipner album "Knock The Walls Down", with the best guitar solo of all times on
"The Ending", as well as the Aretha Franklin songs he played on, and so many other significant releases, are not
available on Spotify at this point, but hopefully, the missing stuff will be added in due time.
Do feel free to follow and share these playlists. They represent a big chunk of Jay's immense contribution to
the music scene over the years. However, remember that streaming can never represent the same musical dynamics and listening
pleasure as a properly mixed and mastered CD or even better, an analogue vinyl. As you know, streaming is just an appetizer
for the real deal, as regards a top quality audio experience.
We hope the music in these playlists will give you many hours of musical enjoyment!

Jay Graydon: Songs And Selected Session Work
Starting off with a small but noteworthy selection of Jay's session work on hit records over the years, plus a few of
the superb songs he has written. Close to 5 hours of fabulous music presenting the immense versatility of this
hard-working musician, even if it represents only a fraction of his output over the years. You will find some new and some
old gems, e.g. the early session work with Jackson 5, The Osmonds, Shaun Cassidy, Leif Garrett, Donna Summer. Barbra Streisand,
and other stars of the era, two different versions of his two Grammy winning songs AFTER THE LOVE HAS GONE and TURN YOUR LOVE
AROUND, plus a small selection of the songs he has written, and so much more. This playlist is compiled with the kind assistance
of Peter Olofsson. Thanks a bunch, Peppe!
Stay tuned for more to come!
