If you're keeping score at home, the piece on the previous entry aired here of Music Factory that was IMO really bad was called "Poem By The Sea". Not spectacularly bad enough to get laughs from, though.

I recall "Society's Child" well. We anti-racist 1960s teens loved the song. Little did I know Janis was just from a few miles away.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 2/22/17 4:12pm Irwin:

Janis's first four albums are available on a 2cd set. There's some incredible songwriting, lyrics, and arrangements on those albums. Shadow Morton produced the first three.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 2/22/17 4:15pm Irwin:

Shadow Morton produced "Leader of the Pack." He also made the Vanilla Fudge a top 10 act, then ruined their career. en.wikipedia.org...

Richie Havens and Shadow Morton died two months apart in 2013.

Richie had such a nice voice that was bordering on overdrive/distortion when he called on it. That perfect warmth that a tube amp sometimes has.
