Poor Side of Town
by Johnny Rivers
#RIPHalBlaine

Drummer and session musician Hal Blaine, a member of the famed Wrecking Crew, died yesterday at the age of 90. According to Wikipedia, "Blaine was one of the most prolific studio drummers in the history of the music industry and his drumming is featured on thousands of records, many by popular artists such as the Monkees, the 5th Dimension, and the Byrds, as well as on film and television soundtracks."

Again from Wikipedia, "Blaine is credited with popularising the "disco beat" after he recorded a "pshh-shup" sound by opening and closing the hi-hat at appropriate intervals on Johnny Rivers' "Poor Side of Town". The effect had been widely used in jazz, but professional recording engineers disliked it because of its resemblance to white noise. The sound subsequently became sought-after by producers in the 1970s."

"The Poor Side of Town" was written by Johnny Rivers and producer Lou Adler. It reached no. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 in the U.S. and the Canadian RPM chart in November of 1966. It features lead vocal and guitar by Johnny Rivers, piano by fellow Wrecking Crew member Larry Knechtel, bass by Joe Osborn, drums by Hal Blaine, and backing vocals by The Blossoms: Darlene Love, Fanita James, and Jean King.

Here's a link to another song that Hal Baline played on, The Crystals "He's a Rebel": https://youtu.be/G_SXJ18EkNw

Once more from Wikipedia, "Blaine played on six consecutive Grammy Award Record of the Year winners:

Herb Alpert & the Tijuana Brass in 1966 for "A Taste of Honey"
Frank Sinatra in 1967 for "Strangers in the Night"
The 5th Dimension in 1968 for "Up, Up and Away"
Simon & Garfunkel in 1969 "Mrs. Robinson"
The 5th Dimension in 1970 for "Aquarius/Let the Sunshine In"
Simon & Garfunkel in 1971 for "Bridge over Troubled Water""
