Coo, this takes me back to a happily misspent youth. As you've no doubt guessed, this CD concerns the Brill Building and the denizens within, those ineffable writing writing teams and solo's, who wrote the soundtrack for millions of teens across the world. For a while back then, these good folk and their output were the epicentre of first-rate pop music, which redounds and resonates to this day...steady there...but by now, most of these tracks are certifiably 'golden oldies', is all, and I love 'em (well, mostly).

Compiled and annotated by well known anagram Groper Odson, he starts with a reasonable summary and life and conditions at the Brill, names the most notable teams and solo's and merely mentions some of the great songs. Why not?, we know them so well. Well, three were new to me, Myrna March, Vinnie Monte and Birdie Green, they're OK, fit the bill. As for the rest (three from the 50s, balance from from 1960/62), if it doesn't immediately spring to mind, it's a B side or LP cut (Dion's "Dream Lover").

For me, many a personal fave. First heard the Shirelles at a youth club, took me a while to work out the lyrics, pretty risqué for the times. Never bought Bobby Vee, tho remember a passionate night - nothing mucky! - to an LP of his. Barry Mann suffered at the hands of UK cover merchants The Brook Brothers and Viscounts, and Tony Orlando, having scored a major hit over here with "Bless You", couldn't give away his "Halfway To Paradise" due to the cover by our own Billy Fury. "Pretty Little Angel Eyes" I bought, realising later that it was an uptempo doo-wopper. Two or three others I bought in period, but a lot of these tunes were all over the radio, so no need (and they were 'pop', after all).

The title of this Compilation is a misnomer. A lot of these songs had nothing to do with the Brill Building (1619 Broadway) but came from 1650 Broadway the home of Aldon Music.Carole King worked there with Gerry Goffin as well as Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil. Good selection though
