Aspen.

1. "...Writing was dead, movies were dead. Everybody sat like an unpeeled orange. But the music was so beautiful."
2. Phil Spector being made out to be some kind of aberration when he put out the best record ever made, "You've Lost that Lovin Feeling. We all made love to the music. And the word love was used and used and used in all the music. Over used, again and again, because that's where it was at... " 3. ....Have you ever listened to "You've Lost That Lovin Feeling, " where the girls are saying oohhhh and suddenly, naturally, just right, come in with "Baby, " against Bill Medley's building vocal line. Repetition. Every head in America must know the last three drum choruses of "Dawn" by the Four Seasons. Paradiddles. Repetition." Quotes from 'A view from the Bandstand' - John Cale (The Velvet Underground) From Issue 3 of Aspen Magazine. Designed by Andy Warhol and David Dalton. Published December 1966 by Roaring Fork Press, NYC. Link to Aspen Website; http://www.ubu.com/aspen/aspen3/index.html
