Brill Building songwriter Barry Mann, who famously married his co-writer, Cynthia Weil, enjoyed a brief parallel career as a singer. He registered a massive hit in 1961 with a fearless parody of the Doo Wop genre, 'Who Put The Bomp (In The Bomp Bomp Bomp)', which boasted one of the most preposterous recitatives in the history of pop music. His other well-known releases include 'Warpaint', 'Counting Teardrops', 'Little Miss U. S. A. ', 'Bless You', 'Footsteps' and 'Teenage Has-Been'. These are all included on this unique compilation, which comprises his regular releases between 1958-1962, and by way of bonus tracks includes 14 of Mann's songwriter's demos, recorded between 1959-1962, which include songs like 'Don't Play No. 9' and 'Venus In Blue Jeans'. These demos have only ever previously appeared on a long-lost bootleg, while his first 45, which he recorded as "Buddy Brooks", has never previously been reissued in any format.
