Abner Spector, producer,
composer and the founder / owner
of Tuff Records. I remember the
intense and creative song writing
sessions that we had. We
worked diligently composing "Look
At Me Girl" b/w "I Tried" and when
we finished writing the song we met
with Richard Tee to rehearse
the melody so he could write the
arrangements for the song.
A friend, Johnny B. Good introduced
me to Abner in 1963. His
office was on the same floor as The
Broadway Recording Studio, in
fact, it was directly across the hall
from the studio.
Abner's musical knowledge and  
natural instinct was the driving
force in the creation and production for
all of the artists that recorded for Tuff
Records, distributed by Chess
Records.
My respect and gratitude for Abner
will remain forever. His belief in my
musical talents provided me with my
first major recording contract with
worldwide distribution.

Thanks Abner,

Jimmie Raye
