Overview
The Last Legacy of E.Y. "Yip" Harburg is a collection of songs and stories co-written by "Wizard of Oz" lyricist E.Y. Harburg and "Santa Baby" composer Philip Springer. Reviewing the songs they wrote together, many years after Yip's death, Springer realized how masterful and poetic Yip's lyrics were and how special the songs they wrote together were. This set of songs was selected by Springer himself as an interesting and entertaining showcase of their collaboration. For the first time, Springer tells the undocumented back story to his creative partnership with Yip Harburg and how each of these songs took shape, giving a unique insight into the very nature of collaborative songwriting. Following their first meeting when Springer was just 24, Yip brought Springer into his inner circle and they remained loyal friends throughout the decades. Along with photos and memorabilia, Springer depicts the camaraderie between himself and Harburg during Harburg's last years. Yip Harburg spent the last night of his life at Springer's home in Pacific Palisades, California, which Springer recounts in this special project. The CD can be obtained by contacting Tamar Springer and will be sent gratis to a US address by USPS media mail.
