And for all its length, it's not even a complete collection of Red Bird's output; some songs that were excluded had even surfaced on previous Charly vinyl anthologies. That said, there's still a lot of great music here, and the flaws in execution may not matter to some fans. Track Listing - Disc 1.
But the Red Bird roster was deeper and more diverse than that, as this generous two-disc, 60-track set shows. The various girl group hits are here, as well as lesser-known sides by the Tradewinds ( New York’s a Lonely Town ) and Tiny Tim ( April Showers ), among others. Leiber & Stoller sold off the label and its associate imprints in 1966 to concentrate on writing and producing.
