I'm not sure you got the full gist of it - but that's a great story of Wexler, Allman, and Lieber meeting . .
especially when Allman says:
"You're fulla shit. Jerry Leiber's been dead for four years."
That tipped me because in 1967 (four years earlier) - the most potent songwriter and producer of the rock 'n' soul era *had* died prematurely at age 38 - the incredibly talented Bert Berns . .
As some may remember - Wexler. Berns, and Leiber (all Jewish record producers) were contemporaries and had very convoluted and often competitive relationships in the 60s.
I seem to remember both Wexler and Allman shared a wicked sense of humor : )
I hope you agree - there was a little bit more to this story : )
Thanks for sharing . .
(soul music lovers will know - but some readers may be wondering who *Bert Berns* was. . he co-wrote TWIST AND SHOUT but do a bing search then listen to Frankie Scott's ARE YOU LONELY FOR ME BABY or Erma Franklin's PIECE OF MY HEART to get fuller appreciation..)
oops . . in the last sentence - I was thinking Freddie and typing Frankie : )
sorry about that - its been a long long day . .
here's a link so you can hear Freddie:
