Shadow Morton, a guy you may confuse with Phil Spector, has died. Morton’s NYT obit will set you straight, if that’s the case.
I’m not positive Morton produced the Shangri-Las’ “Out in the Streets” (a Greenwich-Barry tune that I’ve loved for ages), but if he didn’t, close enough as makes no difference. What matters is this Shindig production of the song, which just flat out stunned me when I viewed it tonight for the first time.
