Ragovoy's production work exemplifies the classic New York "Big City" sound of the 60's. His catalogue includes numerous hall-of-fame classics, almost all of which are included here in their original versions (Others can be heard on Vol. 1 and the forthcoming Vol. 2 of Ace's "Bert Berns Story", Jerry and Bert having worked together in the mid 60's). The CD highlights include the rare original version of "Time Is On My Side" by trombonist Kai Winding, the even rarer debut 45 from Howard Tate "You're Looking Good" (also never previously reissued) and titles from both Jerry's first session (the Castelles) and his most recent to date, playing piano on Howard Tate's new version of "Get It While You Can".
