Description

The Brill Building is an 11-story Art Deco office block at 1619 Broadway, Manhattan; the hub of the US music industry it was where the songwriters who shaped 50s and 60s R&R, R&B and Pop music wrote and published their hit songs. It came to public prominence during the mid/late 50s when the term "The Brill Building Sound" was coined, to describe the R&R and R&B records being written (and in some cases, recorded) there. By common consensus, the late 50s/early 60s Brill Building 'First Team' comprised seven songwriting duos, Jerry Leiber & Mike Stoller, Gerry Goffin & Carole King, Doc Pomus & Mort Shuman, Burt Bacharach & Hal David, Neil Sedaka & Howard Greenfield, Barry Mann & Cynthia Weil, and Jeff Barry & Ellie Greenwich. Other significant Brill Building songwriters at this time included Ben Raleigh, Jack Keller, Bob Hilliard, Phil Spector, Bert Berns, Hank Hunter, Helen Miller, Tony Powers, Larry Kolber, Artie Kaplan, Mark Barkan, Tommy Boyce, Bill Giant, Bernie Baum, Florence Kaye and Bobby Darin. Songs by all of the above are featured on this 64-track cornucopia of timeless Pop music, which juxtaposes a plethora of hits and million-sellers comfortably alongside a handful of obscurities and collectors' rarities.
