Workaholic and all round nutter,
This review is from: Hollywood Maverick: The Gary S Paxton Story (Audio CD)
Seems you have to be totally crazed to produce great music and Gary Paxton after tasting life on one side of the tracks went to the other and became a Born Again Christian.Hence the Art Reynolds Singers who cut the original of a gospel song the Byrds would cover.
Whatever the man knew what he was doing and he did it
Here on this first compilation of his productions are 31 songs in chronological order from the Pledges in 1958 to the Art Reynolds Singers in 1969.Along the way it takes in the first hits which featured Paxton as a singer (Skip & Flip)-Clyde Skip Battin would later provide a straight link to the Byrds-/Paul Revere & the Raiders,the Hollywood Argyles and Bobby Boris Pickett whose group the Cordials had already had a single out produced by Paxton.
There's a thick booklet with an interview and label scans
