ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The 1968-69 folk-rock group from New York City released “Makes You Wanna Sigh” backed by “Once There Was A Child” on Philips Records (40620) in June 1969. Produced by Vic Millrose and Alan Bernstein, the band featured former Children of Rain vocalists Pam and Alan Ross, along with guitarist Frank Fuchs, bassist Mike Ekster, and drummer Steve Turok. The group was short-lived, disbanding in August of ’69, when Pam and Alan relocated to Nashville to begin a country music career. Former Children of Rain member Denis Meacham wrote the group’s A-side single “Makes You Wanna Sigh,” playing slide guitar on the cut, as well as second guitar on “Red Corduroy”—scheduled to be the group’s second release on Philips but jettisoned when Pam and Alan moved to Nashville. Brilliant but unsung harmonicist Jack Goodfellow lends his skills on "Makes You Wanna Sigh" and "Red Corduroy."

A favorite anecdote of the group was the night they were rehearsing in one of Mercury Records studios in New York City when, after roughly half an hour, Jimi Hendrix emerged from the studio's darkened control room. "Sounds great in here, guys," said the rock legend. "Keep up the good work!" Hendrix had been napping in between sessions down the hall, where he was producing fellow Philips artists the Hamilton Face Band.

Ross Legacy’s one and only release on Philips, “Makes You Wanna Sigh,” backed by “Once There Was a Child,” along with the originally scheduled second release, “Red Corduroy” and “A. Philip Rosenblatt,” include string and horn arrangements by Paul Leka, a well-known producer, writer, arranger who wrote and produced the No. 1 hit “Green Tambourine” in 1967, as well as co-writing and producing another No. 1 hit in 1969, “Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye,” which enjoys a second life as a long-running anthem chant at sports stadiums around the world.

Ross Legacy producers Vic Millrose and Alan Bernstein, who co-wrote "A. Philip Rosenblatt," intentionally spelled the title name with only one letter "l" in Philip, hoping to draw attention from Philips label execs to their song.
