LEN BARRY'S GREATEST HITS -- The Original Masters


This CD features 11 of Len Barry's greatest hits, including "1-2-3" and "Like A Baby."  They are from the original masters, recorded in 1965, not re-recorded sides.  Len co-wrote 9 of the songs on this historical CD.  These songs 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 of John Madara & Dave White.  What followed were two other smash hits, "Like A Baby," again written by Len and Madara & White, and "Somewhere," written by Leonard Bernstein and Stephen Sondheim for the film "Westside Story."  All 11 songs were produced by Madara & White.


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


This one-of-a-kind CD is presented by John Madara.  Besides producing all 11 songs and co-writing with Len seven of the songs on this CD, including "1-2-3," Madara & White wrote and produced such timeless classics as "At The Hop" (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."
