ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Len Barry's Greatest Hits -- The Original Masters, features 11 songs by the great, soulful artist, Len Barry. Len co-wrote 9 of the songs on the CD. These are the original masters recorded between 1965 and 1966, not re-recorded sides, and show Len Barry's incredible talent with a style that was uniquely his own.

Len Barry achieved worldwide success with his #1 record, 1-2-3, written by Len and the record producing/songwriting team, John Madara & Dave White. What followed were two other smash hits, "Like A Baby," again written by Len and Madara & White and "Somewhere," music by Leonard Bernstein and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim. All three songs were produced by Madara & White and are featured on this CD.

Before going out on his own as a solo artist, Len Barry achieved success as the lead singer of The Dovells. They had several top 20 hits, including the #2 record, "Bristol Stomp" and "You Can't Sit Down," which reached #3.

This one-of-a-kind CD is presented by John Madara through That Philly Sound, which is dedicated to the music that came out of Philadelphia during the 50s and 60s. Besides co-writing with Len and producing "1-2-3," Madara & White wrote such timeless classics as "At The Hop" (Danny and The Juniors), "Rock and Roll Is Here To Stay - Producer (Danny and The Juniors), "The Fly" (Chubby Checker), and "You Don't Own Me" (Leslie Gore). These and countless other hits by Madara & White helped to create "The Sound Of Philadelphia."

The CD contains valuable information on the musicians who played on each song, the arranger, the year the song was recorded and the studio where it was recorded.

Make this historical CD a part of your oldies record collection!
