That formidable set covered Berns’ ascendancy to the forefront of Tin Pan Alley. Mr Success: The Bert Berns Story, Volume 2, 1964-1967, showcases the years when he bestrode New York’s studio scene like a colossus, running his own successful labels, punching the clock as a producer and penning classic tunes with a who’s-who of collaborators. Nestled among 26 sterling tracks (eight debuting to CD) are classics by Berns stalwarts Garnet Mimms, Freddie Scott and Solomon Burke and rarities from icons Ben E King, Barbara Lewis, Patti LaBelle & the Bluebelles and Otis Redding. Berns’ penchant for Latin rhythms is woven throughout the proceedings like a rose between the teeth, nowhere more irresistibly than on Larry Hale’s ‘In Front Of Her House’.
