I worked with R Dean Taylor briefly in 2007 while working at the Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame - we inducted Love Child. He was a reserved, kind man, but I remember was low key annoyed that we inducted that song rather than his solo stuff. I had no idea he passed, heard about it 20 minutes ago listening to your show, thanks for the great tribute.

Heard the "hits' when they came out, but in '68 the college radio station where I was librarian bought a score of Philles singles. I just kept blasting them over and over in the McIntosh/Bozak system in the library. My synapses were permanently fused. This last week has been a deep dive into every emotion. NO one hits home more than Ronnie.

Sylvia's Mother:

Brian: “First time I heard ‘Be My Baby,’ I was driving and had to pull over. It blew my mind! I want to do something good as that. It’s like Einstein’s theory of relativity. Eventually, I got to work with Hal Blaine. He was supposed to play the snare on the second beat as well as the fourth. But he dropped a stick. He left the mistake in and it became ‘bum-ba-bum-BOOM!’”
