To be more precise, the book mentions a Spector-produced version of 'Baby, Let's Stick Together' by the Paley Brothers, recorded after Spector did the song with Dion - but that was not specified in the above. The question remains the same, though. Has anyone heard the Paley version? One of the Paley brothers is quoted as saying that their version was some of the best work Spector had done since the 60s.

Priscilla's singing has given me so much pleasure over the years, and her entire persona -- at once vulnerable and aloof, naive and worldly -- utterly fascinates me. The best I can offer in tribute is to play to musica a 1967 recording by The Rainy Day Friends on World Pacific, entitled Away To Some Other World, written by Priscilla Paris. While I was at it I also played the flipside, Don't You Feel Rained On?, written by Steven Stills. --Phil M. -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
