4.0 out of 5 stars Cool Cats and a Hound Dog. 12 Mar 2013
By Geffers
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Of all the Jewish songwriters that inhabited New York's Brill Building just off Times Square in the 50-60s Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller are probably the most well known. In this book in collaboration with David Ritz each tells their story a couple of alternate pages at a time .How they met ,fortuitous meetings with Lester Sill ,The Bihari Brothers etc and about their song Hound Dog which had been originally recorded by, Big Mama Thornton and almost forgotten about till Elvis hit the charts with it.
.The stories come cascading out ,how they were warned off from getting too close to Presley ,their runaway success with a slew of hits with R&B group The Coasters ,their involvement with other music big guns of the time such as Phil Spector ,Don Robey ,Hi Weiss Shadow Morton,Jerry Wexler to name a few.
.They had to tread lightly when dealing with complications with the Mob also lightly in another manner in their handling of the tantrums of singer Peggy Lee.
.Naturally they give a good few pages over to the formation and running of the Red Bird label which they owned along with George Goldner ,,heavily involved was producer Shadow Morton and fellow Brill,writers Ellie Greenwich and Jeff Barry. Of interest to the reader will be a proposed but failed merger with Ahmet Ertegun's Atlantic records and then the demise of Red Bird with the duo virtually handing ownership to Goldner on a plate only for him to let it then slide ,ending up with him then selling all the master recordings to Nashville's Shelby Singleton.

5.0 out of 5 stars Leiber & Stoller autobiography 28 Sep 2011
The two great names of 50 & 60s American songwriters, the late Jerry Leiber & Mike Stoller, tell their story. But this isn't a dry autobiography; it's a conversation with the two composers taking it in turns to recount anecdotes from significant points in their story. If you're into this type of music, you'll love it.
