Dick Campbell Sings Where Its At.

Album Produced by Lou Reizner, Mercury Records SR 61060 (stereo)

Recorded in 1965 at Universal Recording Studios, Chicago, Illinois, by:

DICK CAMPBELL (vocals & acoustic guitar): I Had Written a couple of "Dylan-esque" songs which Mercury liked. Columbia had Dylan and Mercury didn't. They asked me to write ten more, Come back in two weeks, and make an album. So I did and this is it.

MIKE BLOOMFIELD [electric guitar]: Producer Lou Reizner hired Bloomfield to get the Bob Dylan sound. Mike had backed Dylan when he first "went Electric" at the 1965 Newport Folk Music Festival and also played on Dylan's Highway 61 Revisited.

PAUL Butterfield [harmonica]: What's a Dylan song without a harmonica? Paul was the best "harp" player in Chicago, so he was hired too. Butterfield brought along his band which included guitarist Elvin Bishop, but Bishop didn't end up on the album.

SAM LAY [drums]: Sam, like Bloomfield, was also a member of the Paul Butterfield Blues Band. He Backed Dylan at Newport and on Highway 61 Revisited. A member of the Blues Hall of Fame, Sam has backed blues greats Howlin' Wolf and Muddy Waters.

MARK NAFTALIN [organ]: Another Butterfield member, Mark cleverly played the carol Joy To The World during the bridges on my song Aphrodites Child. A European band used my name Aphrodites Child before hitting as Vangelis with Chariots of Fire.

PETER CETERA [electric bass]: Peter was with a band called The Exceptions and they recorded a song from my album, Ask Me If I Care. He later became the lead singer and bass player with the group Chicago, and wrote major hits such as If You Leave Me Now.

THE EXCEPTIONS: This noted Midwest band also included keyboardist Marty Grebb (who went on to the Buckinghams), Jimmy Vincent (guitar), and Billy Herman (drums). Marty played finger cymbals on Where Were You, Later recorded by Ian and And The Zodiacs.

ALSO: Drummer Larry "Wild" Wrice, who has played with legends like Marvin Gaye, Lou Rawls, and Count Basie; and my good friend (and cousin) Artie Sullivan on vocals and tambourine. Artie recorded one of my songs Its Time, released on Swan Records.
