Jimmy Page And "Goldfinger"

17 September 2009

In the film It Might Get Loud, Jimmy Page tells The Edge that he recorded "Goldfinger" with Shirley Bassey.

This is certainly plausible and would be awesome to include in the Music Routes database.

But I like to get confirmation for things like this. After all, studio musicians with long careers often get some pretty crazy ideas. Bernard Purdie thinks he played on a Beatles record and that Ringo did not. Big Jim Sullivan says that Herbie Flowers remembers him at the recording sessions for "Space Oddity".

My Google Fu is failing me on this one. Everything that reports that Page played on "Goldfinger" pretty clearly got it from the movie. It's a long, long, long shot, I know, but anyone have any independent confirming information on this?
