PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is the first in a series of great obscure record finds by artists in various stages of their careers, all produced and arranged by veteran record producer/arranger/artist, Alan Lorber as a part of his "New York Music Story" reissue series & book which tells the story of the music industry through the hits he made between 1960-65. The following is a brief synopsis of the songs contained in this compilation: Chevy Chase (that’s him on the cover doing what Chevy does) made his recording in 1969 as part of Chamaeleon Church, in which he was the drummer and pianist; the two versions of Cass Elliot singing “Didn’t Want to Have to Do It” is an important historical story itself. In 1964 Alan Lorber developed a group called the Mugwumps, which consisted of Cass, Denny Doherty, Cass’s first husband Jim Hendricks and Zal Yanovsky, and recorded them for Warner Bros Records. The recording is historical because before they became Mamas & Papas and The Lovin' Spoonful, they were the Mugwumps. The album was not released until 1967 after both successive groups hit. After cutting the album the Mugwumps broke up (it’s all told in “Creeque Alley”). Lorber then developed the Lovin’ Spoonful. During the “Do You Believe in Magic” session, John Sebastian asked if Cass who was leaving for L.A. could cut a recording of a new song he had written. The result is here in two versions, one with harmony, and the other without, both with Sebastian on guitar with guitar solos by him him and Zal Yanofsky; Gary Bonds recorded “My Love Song” for Lorber's label with Buddah in 1975 just before he recorded with the E-Street Band; the legendary 1964 Susan Rafey recording “The Big Hurt” taken from her soon to be reissued Verve album "Hurt So Bad", finally is reissued here; Anthony Newley’s “Image of Love” was cut in 1964 in New York City for a BBC art film while he was performing on Broadway in his hit musical “Stop the World I Want to Get Off”; Bert Berns, songwriting/producer legend ("Hang On Sloopy", "Twist & Shout", Neil Diamond, Solomon Burke, Drifters and countless others) recorded this moving history, "The Legend of the Alamo" in 196O; “I’ll Belong to You” is most likely the very last studio recording McPhatter made, which Lorber produced after he had recorded Clyde’s acclaimed “Songs of the Big City” album for Mercury; Johnny Cymbal came back to work with Lorber in 1975 to record these unique sides after Lorber had made all Johnny’s earlier hits including “Mr. Bass Man”. Lastly, tenor sax great Bob Mintzer (now lead of the YellowJackets and his own albums) made these recordings as part of the Atlantic Records “Papa Nebo” group, which has also been reissued on the Iris Music Group label.
