Ellie Greenwich & Barry Mann

Cynthia Weil & Barry Mann

Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil joined Gerry Goffin/Carol King and Jeff Barry/Ellie Greenwich as the pop/rock composition hit machines out of New York’s Brill Building.  Barry often recorded as a solo act performing his own tunes – “Who Put The Bomp” was his shining moment.  Cynthia was happy to compose hits for others.  While Goffin/King and Barry/Greenwich often released teen anthems – and especially “girl group” smash hits – Mann and Weil were all over the board – though their efforts weren’t last on the “girl groups” (Ronettes, Crystals and Paris Sisters to name a few).  They were just as likely to write for Andy Williams, the Righteous Brothers, B.J. Thomas and so many more.
