Next I brought in Al Gorgoni and Carl
Lynch to play the guitar parts, since I did not play guitar.
Al and Carl were two of the busiest and best guitar players
in the New York recording scene. After that I added the singers.
Each time when I added another element I added a different
type of reverb. Each generation seemed to add to the distinct
sound of the record. When I finished it and played it for
him he hated it. He was really angry. He felt that I wasted
his money. I disagreed with him. I played the record for Jerry
Leiber and Mike Stoller. They loved it and offered to buy
it and reimburse him for all of his expenses. When I went
back to him and told him that Leiber and Stoller loved it,
he had second thoughts about it. The record was released as
Sally Go Round The Roses by the Jaynetts.
On side B was just the band track without the Jaynetts.
It shot up the charts. The disc jockeys
loved it. They thought the record had a real unique sound.
The producer never paid me any money, but he did put "arranged
by Artie Butler" on the record. That was my very first
arranging credit, so I guess I did get paid in some way. Other
producers started calling me to arrange sessions for them
and they wanted the same band I used on Sally Go Round
The Roses. Oh boy
was I in trouble. It was about
time that I take a few arranging lessons. The record will
of course always hold a special place in my heart. It hangs
on my wall where my high school diploma would be hanging ....
had I graduated high school.
