Bob Crewe and Ellie Greenwich in the studio achieved some great music and we continue to find out more.(photos including Frankie Valli below - courtesy of George Schowerer) Our latest research reveals sessions Bob did with Jean Thomas on demos of songs in late 1964 that have never been heard since including songs written by Ed Rambeau and Bud Rehak. With over 900 songs in the BMI lists with Bob's involvement he remains a continued focus for us and a growing number of people. We started to research Bob Crewe’s career several years ago after the release of Mick Patrick and Malcolm Baumgart’s celebratory CD “Bob Crewe Presents…..The DynoVoice Story… The Label That Had To Happen”.
But with news earlier this year of Bob working on a biography there is hope of the story behind the music being told. In the meantime we continue to find and archive his creations.
For now we can enjoy another celebration of Bob’s skills at the blog of Don Charles…by clicking …..THE POP CULTURE CANTINA.
He remains relatively unknown and his achievements very much under appreciated. It is time that was changed and we recommend this blog.
With 8 volumes of 'Seasons' Connections compiled from our growing collection it is such a pity a record company with Bob couldn't have helped us celebrate this great producer. And we know he still has some tapes and acetates even though many were lost with the collapse of his music labels. Don's blog post helps sets the record straight for those who don't know of his work. We hope to find out more in time.
