Gene Pitney - somethings gotten hold of my heart
April 5th: On this Day 1955, Ray Charles married his second wife Della Beatrice Howard Robinson; the couple had three children and divorced in 1977. 1962, The Beatles performed at the Cavern Club in Liverpool as part of a special night presented by the Beatles' fan club. The Beatles wear their black leather outfits for the first half of the performance, for old time's sake, then change into their new suits for the second half of the show. 1967, Monkees fans walked from London's Marble Arch to the US Embassy in Grosvenor Square to protest Davy Jones' planned call-up.

Gene Pitney came to my house and picked me up for this job in a huge black chauffeured limo because he was so pleased with the sound jobs I did for him at the Los Angeles Universal Amphitheater and the Hartford Meadows.
Gene Pitney Legends Show at the Hartford Meadows. I ran the sound. Gene was so thrilled of my mix saying "He (Roger Catlin) never gives good reviews." and "after the third song I had all this room". Because I made him and his orchestra sound so good the very next day or job (I can't remember which) (It was the South Shore Music Theatre job), Gene came to my house to pick me up for the ride to Boston in a super huge black stretch limo. Quite a thrill never to be forgotten or repeated. Such a great man was Gene.

My favourite Apple-related reading of these past few days: Keith James' great day-to-day review of the Iveys' UK tour of February-March 1969 with Gene Pitney, Marmalade, Joe Cocker & The Grease Band (which included future Wings Henry McCullough) and the Mike Cotton Sound (who is credited on Mary Hopkin's "Post Cart" album). My friend Keith has written quite a few Iveys/Badfinger publications over the years, and this is really one of the best. Unlike the previous one, which was devoted to the last UK Badfinger tour (with Man), there is not a hint of sadness of despair here... the Iveys were fighting hard to get to the top and Keith takes us 45 years back to witness the band's first major tour after they were signed to Apple Records, so it's all about positive energy and good times.
Will pretty please cover any Gene Pitney song or any Phil Collins melody? Only he could pull them off.
