Re: R.I.P.—Doris Day

I read that "Send Me No Flowers" initially was produced & arranged by Jack Nitzsche, with Bacharach (who was too busy) asking Mr. Nitzsche to have Ms. Day sound like a "white Ronette". The results were not to husband Marty Melcher's liking so that recording was shelved. If s...

Hiromi is immensely talented, but I don't feel the urge to see her.

Re: Les Reed 1935 - 2019

Les Reed had a strong association with Tom Jones and in all the press coverage I've seen since the announcement of Reed's death the same two songs were referenced each time, It's Not Unusual and Delilah, with no mention at all for either Daughter of Darkness or I'm Coming Home.

Re: UK No.1 album contains new Jimmy Webb song

If I`m not mistaken, "Marie" is from Randy Newman`s `74 album, Rednecks. I could spew immoderately for hours over this absurd project, but I won`t. I've always considered this to be one of the most beautiful ballads ever written, let's hope JW can do it justice. https://www.youtube.com/wa...
