Great musician who really went off the deep-end with that Carrie Snodgrass/Neil Young incident....

Specs!

A marvelous, marvelous arranger. I always thought of him as the man who made Phil Spector's wall of sound concept into a reality.

Specs produced the Paris Sisters' album, a true 60's sunshine pop masterpiece (see Art Of Pop #50). He also was involved with two of my very favorite girlgroup sides, producing Lesley Gore's "What Am I Gonna Do With You," and cowriting The Cake's "Baby That's Me."

...that Carrie Snodgrass/Neil Young incident....

It was even weirder than that. It was after Snodgress and Young had split up -- she was in bed with Paul Williams, writer of schlock-rock songs and "comic actor." Only in Hollywood...

I like his work with Bob Lind.
