As I'm sure you know It was a Jackie DeShannon song as was Needles and Pins. The Searchers did a great job with both of them.

 

Jackie was the first to record Needles and Pins but she didn't write it.  Sonny Bono wrote it.. and if I'm not mistaken thats him to her right in the vid I posted above.

Unless I've missed it there seems to be no commentary about the death of Phil Spector.

There is much debate about whether he should be 'RIP'd, since he was convicted of murder, and also was known as a bullying and abusive character. Although no excuse..I think it should also be noted that he had a lousy upbringing and a lifetime of mental issues.  Genius and insanity?

 

My view is that to deny the amazing music he created not only denies its place in the pop music canon, but also dismisses the talents of those who performed it. rather than trot out the usual suspects. Baby I Love You, River Deep.. etc.. here are a couple of lesser known songs.

Yes, it was the Playhouse and the building is still there......although it keeps changing its name.

Was it called the Gaumont Theatre at some point?  I remember going into a place very much like it for a 'schools' performance of a very much abridged 'Great Expectations'. I could swear it was called the Gauont and I think the Playhouse had by thenn moved to the new modern premises.

I have a 78 of John Barry Seven 'Big Guitar'.  Sounds a bit naff now to be honest.. but I suppose it was pretty 'radical' at the time.

 

 

Anyway. JB went on to do some terrific music for lots of films etc...

 

This is better... except for Forsyth...

 

 

 

I do believe that's Cherry Wainer on organ with Lord Rockingham's X1..

 

And our American cousins..

 

 

And:

It was the Odeon Noddy ! I went to see The Platters there. I must have been about 13 at the time.

Re the Gaumont, didn't it become ABC Nottingham? It started life as The Hippodrome.

The Gaumont was a cinema on the next corner - where Wollaton St meets Goldsmith Street.   The building was demolished many years ago and replaced by this.
