A few years back I interviewed Nino Tempo for Spectropop magazine. Here's what he told me about ILHYLM: NT: "I got the idea of it when I heard a song by the Byrds on the radio and it sounded like bagpipes. It could have been almost any track on the album 'Younger Than Yesterday', on which producer Gary Usher utilized electronic drone sounds, possibly by running sitar tapes backwards, to achieve a sound similar to that of bagpipes. It might have been, I don't remember anymore, but that gave me the idea, and I thought what song to use and I came up with 'I Love How You Love Me' . . .When I produced 'I Love How You Love Me', I didn't have to answer to anybody. I cut everything first, separate from the bagpipes. The guitarist might have been Jerry Cole. I told whoever it was, 'Just play everything in a low register through a fuzz box'. So he played something and I said to just keep repeating that section. And he just kept playing it over and over and over. I put the vocal on it, then brought in the bagpipe player, the only one I could find. You don't get a bagpipe player through the union. He couldn't read music. He said, 'I can only play what I play'. Suffice to say it was a labor-intensive process wedding the bagpipes to the track. I told you that 'All Strung Out' was a great disappointment. Well, this was another one. Atlantic put it [LHYLM] out and thought it was going to be an absolute smash. Then, a short time later, two brothers in England called the Ryan Twins copied it exactly as close as they could." Me: "Including the bagpipes?" NT: "Yes. Just recently a friend of mine sent me a copy, and it was a copy of our record but it was done so poorly." -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

It's a medley with > Wonderful World. It was certainly an interesting style for the songs - too bad he didn't know the words, chords or melodies. gem -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Of these two versions of the song, Nino & April's came first, of course. See here: http://www.spectropop.com/NinoTempo/index.htm And/or search the S'pop Archives.

Re: the cover, I like it, actually. > I googled for it & saw it listed here (top of page): > http://www.doowopshoobop.com/vartitle.html The Anders & Poncia set and other Brilltone CDs sound really interesting; must check them out. Unfortunately, my computer has just crashed badly, maybe permanently. Hopefully, it's repairable. If not, it may be a while - gotta rebuild EVERYTHING! We'll see...

Another song connecting these three is "Galveston," which Webb wrote and Campbell had the hit version of, but of which Ho had the first release. I always loved the Reprise LP sleeves, which promo'd their wildly ranging roster which ran the gamut from Hendrix to Ho.

Message: 6 Date: Fri, 13 Jan 2006 16:48:06 +0000 From: Austin Powell Subject: Herb Bernstein My New Year's Resolution was to tidy up my singles and so far, so good...Today I chanced across a Herb Bersntein production from 1975, a version of Goffin/King's "One Fine day", by Julie, arranged by Harold Wheeler. It's on the Tom Cat label. UK catalogue number TOM 1 - US number YB 10454. Tom Catalano's label I think? Also, Herb worked with Diane Renay on at least one track, but the title escapes me for the moment. Back to the filing, and dusting!

Message: 9 Date: Fri, 13 Jan 2006 18:46:30 +0000 (GMT) From: Philip Hopson Subject: Re: I Love How You Love Me Wasn't there an even earlier version of "I Love How You Love Me" in England, by Maureen Evans?: - a hit as well, I believe. This version, featuring a melliferous vocal by the Welsh songbird; which in no way could be considered querky in any department: vocal interpretation or arrangement, was just simple, straight-ahead easy on the ear. No histrionics, but Maureen's mellow alto aptly suiting both tempo and lyric admirably. Anyone know of Maureen's current situation, (if she is still with us etc). Did she ever record anything in Welsh? (as I can remember her singing a duet with Harry Seacombe on a T.V. show once). -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
