Anthony "Tony" Harris is the son of Jack H. Harris, the famous movie producer of the original 1958 science fiction horror film 'The Blob'.
Tony recorded a pair of fantastic 45s for a Los Angeles-based imprint called Dee Gee Records in the mid-60s. The 'Songbook' LP includes these two superb 45s and explores a brief moment of time in his career for the record industry.
Following two records on Triumph in 1965, he became writer-producer for the L.A. based Dee Gee Records till its end in 1966. Harris then started to break into the soundtrack biz. In 1968, he signed with the VMC label and Duke Baxter's 'Everybody Knows Matilda' became his biggest success.
The A side of this album is dedicated to the singer and performer and the B side to the producer and arranger.
