Bob Crewe:
Sight and Sound, Compositions in Art and Music


This book was the first publication to explore both the extraordinary musical life and the remarkable paintings and sculptures of one of America’s greatest-ever songwriters. Best known for having written and produced some of the seminal records of midcentury popular culture, from “Big Girls Don’t Cry” for the Four Seasons to “Lady Marmalade” for LaBelle, Bob Crewe was a multifaceted artist for whom a passion for painting and the visual arts provided a lifelong counterbalance to music. Mr. Albrecht’s introductory essay tied together the many complementary facets of Crewe’s personal and creative lives, including his queer sexuality and complex relationship to the era’s gay culture.
