Subject: RE: Help: Who sang 'What's it all about Alfie?'
Oh my. Tweak the memory lane.

Alfie was in the first book of music I bought with my own money in 1967 when I had started taking electric organ lessons in the 7th grade. I still have the darn thing. Other songs & tunes in that booklet:
Eleanor Rigby
Wipe Out
Born Free (I think that's why I bought it)
can't remember the rest - possibly Unchained Melody - a dozen or so pieces all together.

I wasn't that fond of Alfie, but Burt Bacharach was my idea of elegant in pop tunes & Dionne Warwick was JUST the voice for 'em. Got an album of that 'round here somewhere, too. I'll never fall in love la la....

PS anyone want to buy an unplayed but still playable vintage 1970 Hammond Organ with leslie speakers?
