…While Randi may not be a household name, it’s safe to say that anyone that’s ever listened to music is familiar with his work.

… You’ve Heard These Hands, the autobiography written by Wrecking Crew keyboard player Don Randi (written with Karen “Nish” Nishimura) gives us a close-up look at the musical and personal journey of one of its key members. … Don Randi’s You’ve Heard These Hands is a fun, breezy read, full of behind-the-scenes anecdotes from the pop music world of the 1960s and 1970s. It’s worth checking out if you’re a ’60s music enthusiast, or if you enjoy entertainment autobiographies.
