Buddy Morrow, Big Band Beatlemania, Epic BN-26095, 1964

We’ve sort of moved from the schlocky discount Beatles knockoff records into the schlocky higher brow Beatles knockoff records.  Buddy Morrow most definitely had an impressive career playing in and then leading big bands, beginning in the 1930s.  Of course, by 1964, while there still was a big band scene, and rock & roll was just one type of music played on the radio, the sales of big band music was approaching zero.

So if groups like The Beatles and The Dave Clark Five were on top of the charts, Buddy was going to make sure his fans, who would probably sneer at buying a Beatles record, could still get their music, only done in the Morrow style.

The two Dave Clark Five songs on the album are probably only included because they shared the same Epic label with Buddy Morrow.  If he was on MGM, there would have been two Herman’s Hermits records.  Either way, this one doesn’t really make me feel glad all over.

Today’s Summary:
