The West Coast Years

West Coast Years.png

This CD contains 23 songs featuring Hal Blaine, Bo Diddley, Tony Joe White, Denny Doherty (lead singer for The Mamas and The Papas), Wayne Newton, Bo Donaldson & The Heywoods, Jim Grady and The Rowan Brothers.  10 of the songs have never been released until now.  Although none of the artists on this CD came from Philly, these sessions were produced by John Madara on the West Coast and deserve to be a part of That Philly Sound.


This historical CD was produced by John Madara, who wrote and produced with partner, David White, such timeless classics as "At The Hop" (Danny and The Juniors), "Rock and Roll Is Here To Stay," (Danny and The Juniiors), "The Fly" (Chubby Checker), "You Don't Own Me" (Leslie Gore) and "1-2-3" (Len Barry, who co-wrote the song with Madara & White).  These and countless other hits by Madara & White helped to create "The Sound Of Philadelphia."


This CD contains valuable information on the arrangers and musicians on each song and the engineers and the studio where it was recorded.
