Message: 1 Date: Wed, 21 Apr 2004 19:43:31 +0100 From: Mick Patrick Subject: Fred Anisfield Question for Al Kooper, or anyone who can help. Hey Al, my pal Tony at Ace Records, having finished work on the new Howard Tate CD (there, that got your attention!), just called in the hope that I could help him some on his latest project, the sleevenotes for a forthcoming Gene Pitney CD. He was after some background info on the songwriter Fred Anisfield. All I could tell him was that Fred wrote many excellent songs, several of which, like "Backstage" and "Where Did the Magic Go", were recorded by Gene Pitney. Ruby & the Romantics cut "Does He Really Care For Me" and "We'll Meet Again" (no, Dame Vera fans, not that song!), two more top of the range Anisfield co-writes. As you were both supplying songs for Pitney, and others in the Aaron Schroeder stable, I was wondering if you ever crossed paths with Fred? I heard he worked on the road as Gene's music director. Can you verify that? Any stories you'd care to share? Btw, as you seem such a fan of Baby Jane & the Rockabyes (aka Henrietta & the Hairdooz), I thought I'd check that you knew that, thanks to girl group maven John Clemente, the outfit have their own page here at S'pop. Well, they *would*, wouldn't they? Click here: Hey la, Mick Patrick -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
