Michel Pagliaro: M’Lady/Pagliaro/Pag/Pagliaro Live

Greg Shaw, Phonograph Record, 1973

ABOUT A year ago we reviewed a single called 'Some Sing, Some Dance' by one Pagliaro. Genuine pop-rock being so much scarcer in those days than it has lately become, we waxed ecstatic over this nugget which reminded us of nothing more than the Revolver Beatles with Phil Spector at the controls. The record of course disappeared into the gulfs of oblivion, but that didn’t stop us from tracking down as much as we could of the man’s recorded legacy and trying to find out what we could about him.
