Live at 5, Monday, April 16

On this day in 1939 Mary Isobel Catherine Bernadette O’Brien was born in London. She got the nickname Dusty as a kid from playing football (soccer) in the streets with the neighborhood boys. She and her brother took the last name Springfield when they sang as a folk duo in 1957. In 1958 she joined The Lana Sisters, but after 2 years decided she would sing with The Springfields. This was a folk trio with her brother Tom and Reshad Field. The group recorded Folk Songs from the Hills
in Nashville, Tennessee, but broke up in October of 1963. In November 1963 Springfield released her first solo single, “I Only Want to Be With You” and by 1966 she had gone to #4 in the US and #1 in the UK with “You Don’t Have to Say You Love Me”. A version of the song that she recorded for a 1979 special Live at the Royal Albert Hall is our Live at 5 today.

Claude Russell Bridges was born on this day in 1942. When he was in high school and playing in Tulsa nightclubs he changed his name to Leon – the name on a fake ID that he was given. In 1958 he moved to Los Angeles and became a session musician playing piano on many Phil Specter records. In 1965 he released his first single and in 1969 he was working with Joe Cocker as his co-producer. In 1970 Leon Russell put together the band for Cocker’s Mad Dogs and Englishmen tour.  In 1970 he also released his first solo album Leon Russell. Today on Live at 5 we hear a song that was originally on Leon Russell and the Shelter People and with New Grass Revival it’s “Stranger in a Strange Land” from the 1981 album The Live Album.
