In the pre-Beatles era, and before the widespread proliferation of singer/songwriters, there was The Brill Building in New York, a near classic musical model of business vertical integration. Once inside the building, you could write a song or make the rounds of publishers until someone bought it. Then you could catch the elevator to another floor and secure a quick arrangement, a lead sheet for $10, get some copies run off at the duplication office; book an hour at a demo studio; hire some of the musicians and singers that hung around; and finally cut a demo of the song. After that, you could hawk it round the building to the record companies, publishers, artist’s managers or even the artists themselves. If you made a deal, there were also radio promoters available to sell the record.
Pop songwriter Neil Diamond, a veteran of the Brill Building song factory, became one of the best-selling MOR performers of the ’70s. Singing his own melodramatic quasi-gospel songs in a portentous baritone, he has amassed worldwide sales of 92 million records, recording over 35 Top 40 singles and 18 platinum albums. Still working today, he draws upon his encyclopedic knowledge of song construction, to continue crafting material that enthralls his legion of followers.
