  1. Seven Songs, except, “Will you love me tomorrow”, were written by Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil..”Will you love me tomorrow” was written by Carole King and Gerry Goffin and was recorded by Smokey.
    Bossa Nova was recorded by Eydie Gorme. On Broadway and Saturday Night were recorded by The Drifters, Lovin’ Feelin’ by the Righteuos Bros, Kicks, Paul Revere and his raiders,
    Uptown, by the Crystals, and We Gotta Get Outta this place , The Animals. You could add “walking in the rain’ by the Ronettes or ” Soul and Inspiration”, again by the Righteous Bros, to the 7 songs…The list goes on…I had the great pleasure and honor of meeting Cynthia and Barry, and working with Barry in the mid 70’s. It was a highpoint for me. Even then, they were legendary. They wrote some of my favorite songs. Favorites evenb before I knew them. Great people…
