Ellie Greenwich

The name Ellie Greenwich is synonymous with hit songs. One of the major influences of 60's rock music, Ellie's songs have earned her over 25 gold and platinum records and sales in the tens of millions along with over 33 BMI Awards and numerous civic and Hofstra-Alumni citations.

Brooklyn-born Ellie moved to Levittown at age 11 and was writing songs by 13. At that time she formed her first "girls group," The Jivettes, with two high school friends and the trio performed original songs at hospitals, schools and charity benefits throughout Long Island.

When her mother arranged a meeting for Ellie with Cadence Records president Archie Bleyer (of Everly Brothers and Chordettes fame), the young talent was advised "to keep writing, but finish school," and Ellie did just that. She attended Hofstra University, was it's Spring Queen and was graduated with top honors, a BA degree in English, and a listing in "Who's Who in American Colleges and Universities."

During her latter years in college, she met Jeff Barry. Eventually, the couple married and went on to become co-writers of some of the most memorable classic pop/rock hits.

In 1962, shortly after her college graduation and a three and a half week High School English teaching stint, Ellie began working in the offices of hot songwriters Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller. There, in New York's famed music business headquarters, The Brill Building, she wrote songs with Doc Pomus and Tony Powers and experienced her first chart successes with "This Is It," sung by Jay and the Americans, and "He's Got The Power," sung by the Exciters. With Barry, Ellie formed The Raindrops (doing all the vocals) and they skimmed the top 10 with "What A Guy" and "The Kind Of Boy You Can't Forget."

Joining forces with legendary producer Phil Spector, a string of legendary hits were created, including: "Be My Baby," "Da Doo Ron Ron," "And Then He Kissed Me," "Chapel Of Love" and "River Deep, Mountain High." With Barry, this trend continued with number one smashes, such as "Hanky Panky," "Do Wah Diddy" and the epic "Leader Of The Pack," co-written with Shadow Morton. Also, during these years, Greenwich reigned as one of New York's top demo/session singers and vocal arrangers, working with artists ranging from Dusty Springfield and Lesley Gore to Ella Fitzgerald, Bobby Darin and Frank Sinatra. One of her most exciting sessions was re-arranging the background vocals on Aretha Franklin's "Chain Of Fools" and working with Cissy Houston and the 'Sweet Inspirations.' During one of her many demo sessions, Greenwich met and "discovered" Neil Diamond and went on to co-produce all his early hits such as "Cherry, Cherry" and "Kentucky Woman," doing background vocals as well. Ellie was also producing for Red Bird Records at a time when female record producers were a real rarity.


In the late 60's, Greenwich found continued success in collaborations with Bob Crewe, having a top 40 record, as an artist, with "I Want You To Be My Baby" - in writing for The Hardy Boys TV series - and in singing on popular commercials for Cheerios, Clairol and Ford Mustang . She would become one of the city's busiest female jingle writers and singers through the 70's and into the 80's being nominated for several Clios, including the "Ooo-La-La-Sasson" Jeans spot and entering the Clio Hall of Fame with a Levi's Jeans commercial from England.

In recent years Ellie has worked with Desmond Child, Nona Hendryx, Cyndi Lauper and Paul Shaffer, among others. In 1984, "Leader Of The Pack," a show about her life and music, opened at New York's The Bottom Line. The success of this show led to a 1985 Broadway run at the Ambassador Theater, where it swept up an extraordinary trio of honors: A Tony Award nomination for Best Musical, a Grammy nomination for Best Cast Album and The New York Music Award for Best Broadway Musical.

Inducted into the Songwriters' Hall Of Fame in 1991 - Ellie has developed a sitcom, a treatment for an original Broadway Musical, a children's animated program with original characters, a Christmas movie and she is working on a book. In 1997, the #1 Dance and Pop record in England and Australia was Ellie's song, "The Sunshine After The Rain."

Elton John, Cher, Tina Turner, Mariah Carey, Bette Midler, Celine Dion, U2 Twisted Sister and Hanson are some of the contemporaries who have recorded her songs and "Christmas, Baby Please Come Home," has started the Holiday season for over fifteen years on the Late Night With David Letterman Show. On TV, in movies, in books and magazines, etc. - there's always a Greenwich song. "I guess you've really made it when your name and songs are in crossword puzzles, in Trivial Pursuit and other games and on Jeopardy."

For the songs that continue to weave a backdrop in today's media, for the decades of listening pleasure, and for her enduring contribution to the history of rock and pop music, we salute Ellie Greenwich. [elliegreenwich.com]

John "Mitch" Mitchell (9 July 1947 – 12 November 2008) was an English drummer, best known for his work in The Jimi Hendrix Experience. [Wikipedia]


Pete Drake

Pete Drake (8 October 1932 – 29 July 1988), born Roddis Franklin Drake, was a major Nashville, Tennessee-based record producer and pedal steel guitar player.

One of the most sought-after backup musicians of the 1960s, Drake played on such hits as Lynn Anderson's "Rose Garden", Charlie Rich's "Behind Closed Doors"' Bob Dylan's "Lay Lady Lay"' and Tammy Wynette's "Stand by Your Man". (Drake's work on this last tune is debatable, in that some sources claim Sonny Curtis to be the steel guitar player on that record.)

Drake was born in Augusta, Georgia, the son of a Pentecostal preacher, in 1932. In 1950, he drove to Nashville, heard Jerry Byrd on the Grand Ole Opry, and was inspired to buy a steel guitar. He organized a band, Sons of the South, in Atlanta in the 1950s, which included future country stars like Jerry Reed, Doug Kershaw, Roger Miller, Jack Greene, and Joe South.

In 1959 he moved to Nashville and went on the road as a backup musician for Don Gibson, Marty Robbins and others. In 1964 he had an international hit on Smash Records with his "talking steel guitar" playing on the album Forever. His innovative use of what would be called the "talk box", later used by Peter Frampton, Joe Walsh and Jeff Beck, added novel effects to the pedal steel guitar. The album Pete Drake and His Talking Steel Guitar, harkened back to the sounds of Alvino Rey and his wife Luise King, who first modulated a guitar tone with the signal from a throat microphone in 1939. The unique sound of the talk box with a steel guitar was new in the 1960s, and it made the sounds of vocalizing along with the strings of the steel guitar. According to an interview of Drake:


"You play the notes on the guitar and it goes through the amplifier. I have a driver system so that you disconnect the speakers and the sound goes through the driver into a plastic tube. You put the tube in the side of your mouth then form the words with your mouth as you play them. You don't actually say a word: The guitar is your vocal cords, and your mouth is the amplifier. It's amplified by a microphone."

The equipment was only loud enough to be useful in the studio for recordings.

Drake played on Bob Dylan's three Nashville-recorded albums, including Nashville Skyline, and on Joan Baez's David's Album. He also worked with George Harrison on All Things Must Pass, and with Ringo Starr on Beaucoups of Blues in 1970.

Drake produced albums for many other musicians, and founded Stop Records and First Generation Records. He was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame's Walkway of Stars in 1970 and the Steel Guitar Hall of Fame in 1987. He died in Nashville in 1988. [wikipedia]

Mulatu Astatke

Mulatu Astatke (surname also spelled Astatqé) is an Ethiopian musician and arranger. He is known as the father of Ethio-jazz. Born in 1943 in the western Ethiopian city of Jimma, Mulatu was musically trained in London, New York City, and Boston, where he was the first African student at Berklee College of Music. He would later combine his jazz and Latin music influences with traditional Ethiopian music.


He has worked with many influential jazz artists such as Duke Ellington during the 1970s. After meeting the Massachusetts-based Either Orchestra in Addis Ababa in 2004, Mulatu began a collaboration with the band which continues today, with the most recent performances in Scandinavia in summer 2006 & Toronto in summer 2008. Mulatu's signature instrument is the vibraphone.

In 2005, his music appeared on the soundtrack to the Jim Jarmusch film Broken Flowers. Also, Volume 4 of the Ethiopiques series is devoted entirely to his music. Mulatu has also produced songs for many artists from East Africa, in particular Mahmoud Ahmed.


He has recently released an album sold exclusively to passengers of Ethiopian Airlines. It is a 2-disc set, the first one being a compilation of the different styles from different regions of Ethiopia, and the second being studio originals.

Mulatu recently completed a Radcliffe Institute Fellowship at Harvard University where he worked on modernizations of traditional Ethiopian instruments and premiered a portion of a new opera, "The Yared Opera."1 Currently, Mulatu is an Abramowitz Artist-in-Residence at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge, MA. In addition to a lecture and workshops, Mulatu will be working with the MIT Media Lab on creating a modern version of the krarr, a traditional Ethiopian instrument. [wikipedia]

France Gall - Der Computer nr 3



Der Computer Nr. 3 Lyrics

"sucht für mich den richtigen Boy,
und die Liebe ist garantiert für beide dabei.
Der Computer weiß genau
für jeden Mann die richtige Frau,
und das Glück fällt im Augenblick
aus seiner Kartei.

Denn einer von vielen Millionen,
der wartet auf mich irgendwo.

(Gross: einszwoundachtzig, Kragen: 39, Schuhgröße: 46, stop!)

Der Computer Nr. 3
sucht für mich den richtigen Boy,
und die Liebe ist garantiert für beide dabei.

Lange war ich einsam, heut' bin ich verliebt,
und nur darum ist das so,
weil es die Technik und die Wissenschaft
und Elektronengehirne gibt.

Der Computer Nr. 3
sucht für mich den richtigen Boy,
und die Liebe ist garantiert für beide dabei.
Der Computer weiß genau,
für jeden Mann die richtige Frau,
und das Glück fällt im Augenblick
aus seiner Kartei.

Denn einer von vielen Millionen,
der wartet auf mich irgendwo

(Alt: 22 Jahre, schwarze Haare, von Beruf Vertreter, Kennzeichen: Geld wie Heu)

Der Computer Nr. 3
sucht für mich den richtigen Boy,
und die Liebe ist garantiert für beide dabei."

Doppler - songs to defy (2008)



ouh ouh Doppler - songs to defy, l'album qu'on attendait depuis 4 ans est enfin sorti sur SK records . quelques chroniques de site qui en parle mieux que moi .

Perte et Fracas : "Rien de tel qu'un disque qui reste accroché à la platine, un disque dont vous ne démordez pas. Vous avez trois tonnes de musique à écouter, du neuf, de l'ancien, du coté, de l'inconnu peu propice au grand saut mais c'est ce disque qu'il vous faut et pas un autre. Là, en ce moment même, cette sensation précise et tout le reste peut aller se faire voir. Le second album des lyonnais de Doppler est de la catégorie super glue, celle qui colle aux tympans et ne vous lâche plus. Doppler aura mis quatre ans pour donner suite à Si Nihil Aliud. Une longue gestation pour s'affranchir de l'ombre des Deity Guns et autres mastodontes-ès-noise des années 90 afin de développer sa propre théorie du bruit sans renier les bases. Sept morceaux - seulement répondrez vous, ça fait peu du kilo à l'année - mais tout est travaillé, pensé dans ses moindres détails et Doppler, comme à son habitude, aime tailler sur la longueur des mouvements s'épanchant au-delà des cinq minutes pour se fracasser jusqu' à dix. Et ça, tu l'accouches pas en deux jours. Compositions tour à tour éclatées et ramassées sur elles, déliées et explosives avec une paire basse-batterie toujours aussi colossale, tant dans la précision que la force de frappe, nous gratifiant de joutes rythmiques à se damner. L'effet samba en plein milieu de We are not sick… me rend malade de bonheur. Aucun doutes, c'est deux là sont complémentaires. Quant au guitariste, il se met au niveau, n'hésitant pas à se faire encore plus mélodique que par le passé et avec cette voix légèrement trafiquée, distillée avec parcimonie et toujours à cran, ça vous donne de sacré morceaux épiques. My Third Millenium !! est un long sprint sauvage qui met à genoux pendant que 6 centimetres les met profond et en relief. Car Doppler n'hésite plus à se mettre à nu, ne plus uniquement se cacher derrière les décibels, aller au bout de son idée mélodique et donne à plusieurs reprises dans le lyrisme, un truc brutal et bouillonnant qui retourne les tripes. Les passages plus calmes n'ont rien de l'habituel cliché post-rock. De la vraie mise sous tension, pas là pour simplement faire joli et ménager l'auditeur. Maintenir la pression avec une recherche aiguë du contraste, enchevêtrée dans le tumulte, pour un vrai sens de la noirceur. Les samples continuent de se faire discret, servant l'atmosphère sans la polluer. Doppler a dépassé le stade de simple groupe noise pour partir à la conquête de territoires plus ambitieux. S'attarder sur l'écriture, aller au-delà de la simple énergie physique, toujours présente bien sûr, mais sublimée dans des jeux de construction élaborés au Black Box d'Angers avec Peter Deimel, un souhait de longue date. The Coming Out, final étendu avec une pointe de violon et de stridences, tout en retenu, progression sur la corde raide. Preuve ultime qu'un nouveau palier vient d'être passer. Doppler a élargit sa palette et provoque un sentiment de malaise comme à chaque fois que vous tombez sur un grand disque."

Positive rage
: "Il faut que ça gueule" ! C'est avec ces quelques mots que débute le nouvel album des lyonnais de Doppler. A partir de là il ne vous reste qu'une petite seconde avant de vous manger une énorme claque ! Quatre ans après l'excellent 'Si Nihil Aliud', les fils spirituels des Deity Guns reviennent donc sur le label SK (Ned, Bananas at the Audience, etc.) pour un album tout simplement énorme. Le son, capturé au mythique Black Box par le maître Peter Deimel, n'y est sans doute pas étranger, mais c'est avant tout des compositions plus travaillées que jamais qui placent cet album devant beaucoup d'autres. Toujours aussi bruyant, toujours aussi fan de ses aïeux lyonnais (Deity Guns et Bästard en tête), le trio ouvre son champ d'action, poussant plus encore ses aspects mélodiques, et laissant la place à de plus en plus de respirations dans son pugilat noise. Preuve en est le final "The Coming out" (sa fin est tout de même trop marquée Bästard) ou le passage de samba frénétique sur "We are not sick" ! Il va sans dire que les plans de batterie sont encore une fois remarquables, subtils par moment, et puissant quand les plans le réclament. Ils permettent souvent d'ouvrir les longs morceaux du trio. Côté chant, on garde cette voix légèrement distordue d'inspiration Bästardienne pour un résultat toujours aussi malsain, pendant que la guitare et la basse vous maltraitent avec un savoir-faire impressionnant. Alors, on peut peut-être demander qu'ils se détachent définitivement de l'influence Bästard / Deity Guns, encore très présente ici, mais, en attendant, avec ces sept titres (prêt de 45 minutes), Doppler s'impose irrémédiablement comme un des fers-de-lance de la scène noise française… voir internationale. Respect."

Excit : "Si il est bien un album que j'attendais plus que tout les autres en cette année 2008, c'est bien celui-ci ! 10 ans que le groupe existe et pourtant les lyonnais n'en sont qu'à leur deuxième album précédés de deux EP, dont l'incontournable "Star sexual fantasy" paru en 2001. 4 ans après "Si nihil aliud", Doppler enregistre donc ce "Songs to defy" à la black box avec Peter Deimel aux manettes. 7 titres d'une rare intensité (la formule parait classique mais vous comprendrez pourquoi en les écoutants...), d'une rage frénétique et primaire, d'une technicité à en faire pâlir plus d'un, agrémentés de voix plus présentes qu'à l'ordinaire. Chaque titre me repousse un peu plus dans les cordes jusqu'au KO final. Ce groupe m'impressionne comme chacune de leurs prestations scéniques d'ailleurs. En fait vous comprendrez qu'il est plus facile de parler de celui qu'on aime bien plutôt que celle ou celui dont on est amoureux. C'est pourquoi je ne saurais en dire davantage tout simplement parcequ'il y a des expériences qui se vivent plus qu'elles ne se racontent. Peut être légèrement en retrait par rapport à son prédécesseur "Si nihil aliud", Doppler n'en reste pas moins inégalable. Tout simplement !"

The Mellotron


The Mellotron is an electro-mechanical, polyphonic keyboard originally developed and built in Birmingham, England in the early 1960s. It superseded the Chamberlin, which was the world's first sample-playback keyboard. The heart of the instrument is a bank of parallel linear[1] magnetic audio tapes, which have approximately eight seconds of playing time each. Playback heads underneath each key enable the playing of pre-recorded sounds. [wikipedia]
