  9:52am permanent vacation:

With Caprice Records partners Gerry Granahan producing and Hutch Davie arranging and leading the band, the ANGELS scored a pair of top 40 hits with “’Til” and “Cry Baby Cry” in 1961-62. Proficient background singers, the members of the Starlets and Angels were frequently employed by Granahan and others to sweeten other artists’ sessions. Through one of these jobs, the Angels' Allbut sisters met Richard Gottehrer, Robert Feldman, and Jerry Goldstein, partners in the FGG songwriting and production company. They wrote “My Boyfriend’s Back” for the Shirelles,” Gerry Granahan explains. “They asked me if the Angels could do a demo. They were still signed to Caprice Records and I had the name. So, Feldman says to me, ‘I’ve got a song for the Shirelles. Can I use the Angels to do a demo? I said, ‘O.K., just let me know how it comes out.’ I didn’t hear anything from anybody. Then I heard they’re going to sell it to Mercury. I said, ‘How can they sell it to Mercury? Are the girls going to change their name and call themselves the Starlets again?’ ‘No, they’re going to be sold as the Angels.’ I said, ‘No way. I’ll work a deal out with you. I don’t want to go through any hassles. If they want to give up a piece of it, I’ll walk away. My attorney kept saying, ‘I’m working on it.’”

In a convoluted turn of events, Granahan’s unscrupulous attorney worked a deal for himself with FGG, edging the producer-label owner out of the picture. “He sits down with the girls, signs them to Sabina, a label which we distributed then makes a deal with FGG without me knowing about it and sells the name of the Angels to Mercury for $5,000. After the record was a hit, Mercury, in turn, gave the Angels name to FGG and took it out of their royalties. On top of that, when they came out with the first album they took my masters of ‘Til’ and ‘Cry Baby Cry’ and included them without any permission whatsoever.” Soon after, Granahan was paid a visit by a prominent New York hit man. “My attorney had O.K.’d it for this guy to come over and break my legs. He was my best friend and he stuck it to me. I didn’t see all these contracts and he said he had all my paperwork from when he was dealing with them in his house in his basement, with my tapes. Then he says to me, ‘I have some bad news for you. I had a flood and everything got destroyed.’ You sell your best friend down the river all for a couple of thousand dollars? Legally, this is still not resolved since the ‘60s and the Angels are fighting them for their royalties, too.”
