I couldn't find anymore information as to what song it was.


Red co-wrote a song with Mark James titled "When The World Was Round" that Petula Clark recorded for her 1970 Warner Bros. album "Memphis." I don't know if Red wrote any other songs that were recorded by Petula Clark.

Nice find. Memphis was cut at American Sound in 1969 and produced by Chips Moman, so it's not surprising to see James and West land a tune on the 1970 LP.

I wonder if this one was inspired by Dusty Springfield's superb 1969 "Dusty In Memphis" album?

Very nice topic! Red was the better one of the group, at least he showed interest in music and had a go at writing some decent songs. I read, that when Red was out on the road with Elvis in the beginning, it was Scotty Moore who showed Red a few guitar chords when they were travelling in the backseat of a car or in hotel rooms etc...must've been great times! So Red progressed from there.

Good topic, Doc. Apart from a few "off topic" comments, which always happens. You kept it on track by telling them to stay "on topic" good on you.

Yes, Clark's sessions were 100% inspired by Springfield's work at American Sound.
