The Ad-Libs: The Complete Blue Cat Recordings (CD)

(Real Gone) 23 Titel (14 unveröffentlicht)1964/65. Ecopac mit 12-seitigem Booklet.
Auf den Fersen ihrer begeistert aufgenommenen The Red Bird Girls: Very First Time in True Stereo 1964-66 Compilation haben die Produzenten Ron Furmanek und Ash Wells das erste legitime Album herausgebracht, das den klassischen Blue Cat Aufnahmen der Ad-Libs gewidmet ist, mit 24 Tracks, die direkt von den originalen Master Session Tapes stammen! Und unter diesen 24 Tracks befinden sich fünf unveröffentlichte Songs und neun unveröffentlichte Alternativversionen mit drei bisher unbekannten Versionen des großen Hits 'The Boy from New York City' inklusive einer A-Cappella-Demo! Notizen von James Moniz erzählen die Geschichte der Ad-Libs mit Hilfe zahlreicher Zitate von Gruppenmitglied Norman Donegan, während Manhattan Transfer-Mitglied Tim Hauser eine Einführung schreibt. Ein weiterer unglaublicher Fund aus den Red Bird / Blue Cat Tresoren!

The Ad Libs

The Boy From New York City

The Ad Libs

The Boy From New York City

 

Yet another vocal group featuring a female lead in front of an all-male chorus similar to The Sensations, The Essex, and Ruby & The Romantics, The Ad Libs consisted of Mary Ann Thomas, Hugh Harris, Danny Austin, Norman Donegan, and Dave Watt. They hailed from Hudson County, New Jersey and were discovered by veteran saxist John Taylor back when they were all-male and called The Creators.  That group's first single for the minuscule T-Kay label, I'll Never Do It Again, was followed by a pair for Mercury's Philips subsidiary, 1962's Boy He's Got It  and I'll Stay Home (New Year's Eve), licensed from T-Kay.

Taylor dreamed up The Boy From New York City  while gazing at Gotham from his vantage point across the bay, incorporating a boogie woogie feel reflecting Taylor's history of playing in big bands. When he looked up the group to record it, only Austin and Harris were left from the original Creators. Thomas and the others had been added, and their name was changed to The Ad Libs (one report has Taylor re-christening them in homage to a Manhattan jazz joint). Mary Ann's saucy lead, the bopping bass vocal, and a propulsive rhythm were enough to convince Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller, the legendary producers/composers then running their own Red Bird label, to produce The Boy From New York City for their Blue Cat subsidiary (Artie Butler did the arrangement). It proved a #8 pop and #6 R&B smash.

The Ad Libs' sassy Blue Cat encore He Ain't No Angel, penned by Jeff Barry and Ellie Greenwich, barely made a chart impression, and the uncommonly strong On The Corner and I'm Just A Down Home Girl went nowhere. But The Ad Libs persevered, waxing You're In Love for Philips in '67 and posting a 1969 R&B chart entry with Giving Up on the Share imprint (by then Irene Baker was their lead vocalist). In 1981, Manhattan Transfer revived The Boy From New York City, notching a #7 pop seller.
