Shuman, Mort

Vinyl Records and Rare LPs:

Shuman, Mort - My Death My Death
Pop New - LP MS 6358 Reprise
Sealed, Archival Quality, 1969 Stereo Original. Only Copy We Have Ever Seen. “While Either On His Own, Or Teamed With Songwriting Partner Doc Pomus, Mort Shuman Has Authored Some Of The Most Lasting Songs In Pop Music, Including "Save The Last Dance For Me" And "Teenager In Love." Born In Brooklyn To Jewish Immigrant Parents, Shuman Studied At The New York Conservatory But Felt Rejected And Alienated By His Peers In Brooklyn. Identifying With The Black Community In Harlem, Shuman's True Musical Education Came Within That Area's Raucous R&B Clubs, Where He Soaked Up The Sounds Of Ruth Brown And Others. Shuman Started Penning Lyrics At 18 And Found Success When His Songs Such As "Surrender" Were Recorded By Elvis. In 1958 The Songwriter Met Fellow White R&B Devotee Doc Pomus And The Two Took Up Residence In A Small Greenwich Village Flat, Forming A Successful Songwriting Partnership. Together The Duo Signed On As Writers At The Brill Building, Penning Hits For The Drifter's ("Save The Last Dance For Me" And "Sweets For My Sweet"), Elvis ("Little Sister") And Dion & The Belmonts ("Teenager In Love"). Those Early-'60s Songs Represented The Zenith Of Shuman's Creative Output ( "Last Dance" Alone Has Been Played Across The Airwaves Over Four Million Times), But The Songwriter Continued To Write For Janis Joplin, Andy Williams, And The Small Faces, Among Others.” AMG.... more details
