"Be My Baby" exemplifies the Phil Spector "Wall of sound.”

Over 35 musicians were in the studio playing playing at the same time when this record was recorded.

I really wish I could time travel and sit in on a session from back in the days. One of my life long dreams is to produce a record using people instead of keyboards, and my biggest dream ever is to have an orchestra and write and conduct a piece. 

wow. what an insane guy.

Fuantleroy teaching himself how to play guitar then producing his own songs is mad. 

not that his guitar playing sounds all that great, but what it represents is great. the fact that he’s expanding his talents is amazing.

Just imagine what it was like when Stevie Wonder taught himself how to play piano after learning the harmonica. then think about the songs Stevie Wonder has went on to write…

James is one of the best songwriters and vocal arrangers of our time and most people have no clue.
