Recording at Columbia Square on Sunset Blvd. with engineer Ray Gerhardt. Producing British duo Chad & Jeremy's hit "Distant Shores" (and meeting their bassist/songwriter/manager Jim Guercio). Producing Gene Clark's solo debut single, the masterpiece "Echoes" (including Leon Russell's mesmerizing orchestral arrangement). Songwriter/producer/artist Johnny Walsh's fantastic one-off single for Columbia, "The End," composed by Ian Whitcomb. Jamie And The Jury (a group that recorded for a few labels) and their catchy 45, "This Too Shall Pass." Larry Marks' forced move from Columbia to A&M and signing the Merry-Go-Round. The generosity and culture of Herb Albert & Jerry Moss. Producing Emitt Rhodes & The Merry-Go-Round recordings such as "She Laughed Loud" and "Missing You" (which he composed). Studio aggregation The Garden Club's "Little Girl Lost-And-Found" (which featured songwriter Ruthann Friedman as vocalist). The Merry-Go-Round's lack of national success. Producing Southern California's West Coast Branch for their A&M release, "Colors Of My Life." Working with Phil Ochs and producing his Pleasures Of The Harbor album (selections of which are presented in rare mono mixes), which represented a stylistic shift for the singer-songwriter. Working at A&M studios and mastering with Bernie Grundman. Phil's fascination with Lenny Bruce. Larry Mark's own single on A&M: "L.A. Break Down (And Take Me In)." Producing the Flying Burrito Brothers seminal debut album with engineer Henry Lewy (and the fuzz pedal steel sound of Sneaky Pete). A reunion with Gene Clark and producing the albums of Dilllard & Clark and the single "Why Not Your Baby."

In an episode first aired on June 29, 2009, host Andrew Sandoval brings you another exciting installment of "Come To The Sunshine" this time paying tribute to the short-lived, but endlessly fascinating Colgems label. Developed by Columbia Pictures and Screen-Gems Music in 1966 as something of a vanity imprint for soundtracks and recordings by The Monkees, it is their many non-Monkees releases that hold particular interest for fans of '60s pop. The label's topsy-turvey A&R approach led to a psychedelic single from Hoyt Axton, last gasp rockin' soul from Jewel Akens and the awesome country rock of the Lewis & Clarke Expedition. With talented producers like Gary Paxton, Stu Philips, David Gates, Richie Podolor and Jack Keller, it is surprising how many non-hits the label turned out in a four year stretch.
Episode #57 of "Come To The Sunshine" presents 45 single slices of Colgems' 45 rpm magic - all from original vinyl (not a CD in the house folks) - with music by: The Monkees/Hoyt Axton/Lewis & Clarke Expedition/Sally Field/Jewel Akens/Hung Jury/Fountain Of Youth/Paula Wayne/Sajid Kahn/Peter Kastner/P.K. Limited/New Establishment

September 03, 2012 09:39 AM PDT
In an episode first aired on Labor Day September 3rd, 2007, "Come To The Sunshine" #28 was host Andrew Sandoval's first ever Gary Lewis Telethon!
The show features more than two hours of nothing but the best of Gary's criminally underrated recordings (such as selections from his great later period albums like "I'm On The Right Road Now," "Listen" and others). The show's goal was for Gary to get his critical due and never ROCK alone!
Nevertheless, this irreverent program is not affiliated with the former Jerry Lewis Telethon. Information can be found for that at http://www.mdausa.org/telethon/
