WHAT'S A MATTER BABY (IS IT HURTING YOU)

Latest update on 17/09/2017

Artist: Timi Yuro
Author: Joy Byers/Clyde Otis
Label: Liberty
Year: 1962

Brill Building pop, finished and produced by Phil Spector, in the footsteps of producer Clyde Otis, who just came over from Liberty. One of the few things Phil produced on this temporary payroll. He'd been payed a year in advance, which enabled him to start up his own Philles label. As for Timi Yuro, things worsened when she lost her voice in a series of throat operations in the early eighties.
