Oral History Information
Brooks Arthur began singing at an early age and began taking voice lessons to sing in his temple before he was a teenager. While working in the mail room of a record company, Brooks heard his first live recording and fell in love! He soon was hired to engineer some products, which lead to a storied career recording several of the girl singing groups popular during the 1960s and their hit songs including “My Boyfriend’s Back” by the Angels and “The Chapel of Love” by the Dixie Cups. As a producer, he gave us such albums as “Astral Weeks” by Van Morrison, “Brooklyn Roads” by Neil Diamond, and several albums for the comic Adam Sandler.
