One More Time

a feature documentary
by Alan D Boyd
Producer/Editor Charlene Rule


From Bowie to Bond, Elton John to Ella Fitzgerald, ONE MORE TIME tells the behind-the-scenes story of the British session musicians who defined the sound of music for a generation.

to About


ONE MORE TIME is a feature documentary capturing the legacy of the British recording scene from the late 1950’s to the early 1980’s, as seen through the eyes of the session players who both defined and were defined by the era; and who played on some of the most well-known and well-loved songs still enjoyed today.


Born from the ashes of the second world war, ONE MORE TIME brings the musicians together for studio sessions in London. The film offers a rare insight into how music was made in a time where musicians faced a gruelling schedule while they raced around London’s renowned studios recording thousands of tracks in the golden era of British recording.


Through the unique humour and story telling that was a hallmark of the players, ONE MORE TIME gains a rare insight into a bygone era. By bringing them back together the film will put on record anecdotes from the heyday of the London music scene as they share them with each other. 


The musicians will be contributing interviews to discuss their careers and lives before, during and after their time as session players along with contributions from producers, engineers, studio managers and the stars who were all part of a time when British musicians were arguably the best in the world. 


ONE MORE TIME is a celebration of music and musicians delving into the good-times and the bad-times. From studio to stage; Bond to the Beatles; Ziggy to Zeppelin; ONE MORE TIME is the first time many of these stories will be captured in a film and through intimate filming in a studio environment a unique chance to see how some of the worlds most iconic music was made.


to The Players

The Players

This is a film about the players, the people who you rarely saw but who brought the music to life. During the peak of the London session scene these guys were doing four sessions a day and sometimes taking on live work in the evening. A few emerged from the scene as artists in their own right while others moved on when it all started changing due to technology and a new generation.
