The Old Swinging Gate by Rodd Keith
The now-defunct song poetry business offered amateur poetry/lyric writers to have their own written work put to music. The prolific Rodd Keith, who was known to many as the "Mozart" of the business, sung these wonderfully strange lyrics over the many musical templates of his backing band. The ability to adapt the amateur lyrical content provided into shaped, consistent tunes made Keith one of the best in the biz. This compilation provides a look into Keith's career and relics of an industry only found in mid-century America.
