WPGC - Harv Moore - I Told Santa Claus I Want You


Special thanks to WPGC's 'Morning Mayor', Harv Moore for the above.



Harv Moore writes:

In 1965 I was producing records for a band called 'Nobody's Children'. I got the name from nationally renowned independent record promoter Joe Cash. The band was originally called 'Adam's Apples'. They were students at Suitland High School. I had them under contract with United Artists Records for two years. Then I produced a re-make of 'I Can't Let Go' (the Hollies hit), and placed it with Neil Bogart at Buddah Records. So, 'Nobody's Children' was then under contract for two years with Buddah.

I had written a Christmas song called, 'I Told Santa Claus I Want You' with a Beach Boys sound in mind, but I had no one to record it. I rehearsed it with the guys from 'Nobody's Children' who were still under contract with United Artists Records, and we recorded it at Edgewood Studios in D.C. with engineer Ed Greene. It was 'Phil Spector meets The Beach Boys'. I was a huge fan of both. The kids did a helluva job on it. Lee Travers borrowed a glocksenspiel from Suitland High School for the production. It came out great.

I sent it to Florence Greenberg at Scepter Records, and she loved it. They released it just before Christmas in '67. Unfortunately, that was the year that stations around the country had backed off of Christmas songs. It did get played on WMCA in New York though! And, of course, Cousin Duffy played the hell out of it at 'PGC.

I produced under the name 'Phil Music'- a play on words. Back in the day we used to pad up to news time at the top of the hour with instrumental 'fill music'. The labels on UA, Buddah / Bullet and Scepter all read "Produced by Phil Music".
