Subject: RE: Will Spauldings Oh Wows
Hey Bob, again I really appreciate you doing this 'oh wows' concept again. Perhaps you know this, but the 1983 song "Midnight Blue" by Louise Tucker and Charlie Skarbek came from the Beethoven classical composition "Sonata," which is where many probably originally heard this. |
Also, I dug up some information about Little Peggy March, as one of her songs was featured in this concept. And I found out that the legal firm that handled her money, Coogan Law, had squandered all of her fortune and left her with just $500 when she turned 18 and went to claim her money. A real sad story for a very talented singer who deserved so much more!
I don't about you, but I really do like the Four Tops version of "Walk Away Renee" better than the Left Bank version. Levi Stubbs certainly had a one in a million voice! Also, thanks for playing "Sweet Gingerbread Man," you don't hear it much anymore but it's one of my all-time favorites.
