Reginald Dwight is the only one I know. Elton John.

I knew the Yardbirds question as well.

i'll keep the answer to myself to see if anyone can find it other than through google/wikipedia.

i have to admit that i have a couple of versions of Train Kept a Rollin' in my Windows Media Player collection, so I could see in the track info who the original writer was.

Cool. What album did Rolling Stones manger Andrew Loog Oldham take out a full page ad on to promote in the British music press in 1966, when he had no way to benefit from the profits whatsoever? (hint: the act was the #1 most popular group among Brits in 1966).

I'm going to take a wild guess and say The Who?


EDIT: I misread the question; didn't realize you were looking for an album title. After Googling, however, I will say I was way off. The band he is referring to was not a British act.

KCJohnny

Yes! Pet Sounds is universally regarded as the greatest rock album of all time along with Sergeant Pepper's Lonley Hearts Club Band which came out a full year fater Pet Sounds. Andrew Loog Oldham, at his own expense promoted Pet Sounds sheerly for its artistic merit - he gained no profits from its sale.

phisherman

ChiefJustice

Pet Sounds is great.

I'm not sure I would call it the bestest EVAR though.

At the time,it was a new sound that the Brits were crazy for.

It still holds up today....moreso if you live in California.

Yep, That's the song. Dr. Robert is about Robert Zimmerman, aka Bob Dylan. Afterall, he's the one that INTRODUCED them to drugs.


On a side note...anybody have XM radio and listen to XM40 in the mornings? Dylan has his own show and it's pretty cool to listen to and I'm not even a big Dylan fan. Yesterday he was talking about making Bloody Marys and his recipe for them. He sounded half-crocked. Hilarious.
