2/4. Singer Patti Labelle tells the story of Brooklyn-born record-producer giant Richard Perry , who has had a hit with just about every genre in his field. Having made a certain name for himself in the 60s with such acts as Tiny Tim, Fats
Domino, Captain Beefheart and Ella Fitzgerald , Perry further cemented his reputation in the early 70s with career-defining albums for Harry Nilsson , Carly Simon and Ringo Starr , whose 1973 LP Ringo reunited the Beatles (though no one track features all four members). This instalment recalls those acclaimed early-70s works.
