New Music Tuesdays! “Make The People Sing” and “Daydreamer” from Vintage Masters
Decca artist Sandy Szigeti, best known for his 1971 release America’s Sweetheart (produced by Ricky Nelson) knew how to make good records and was a master of Sunshine Pop.
Not only was he a prolific artist unto himself, but he also produced records for other colleagues, including Lynn Ready who’s gritty, trippy Psych Rock swirls together the acids of Cream, The Guess Who and Bachman Turner Overdrive.
Before, during and after Sandy’s time with Decca, he never stopped making music. Now, for the first time, a collection of previously unreleased Sandy Szigeti tracks reminiscent of The Byrds, Donovan and The Animals are available on the Fervor Records Vintage Masters release Make The People Sing.
Recorded between 1965-1974, Make The People Sing features songs like “Make Believe World” and “Bringin’ It Home”, which can be heard in American Horror Story (FX) and the 2013 film The Way Way Back, respectively.
As a producer, Szigeti did a bunch of sessions with Lynn Ready, a former original Mickey Mouse Club Mouseketeer who eventually became known for his musicianship and recorded as a sideman on numerous Motown albums.
The cuts that came from this partnership were much more experimental and mind-expanding with a heavier rock and roll overtone, enhanced by Ready’s powerful scratchy rock voice and wailing guitar solos.
Hear the full story on the new Fervor Records Vintage Masters release Daydreamer, which includes a song called “Thirsty”, as heard in the 2013 film Arthur Newman Golf Pro.
Both albums are available worldwide as of today.
