Song of the Day: Gary Holton and Casino Steel, “Baby I Love You”

As far as I know, if singer and actor Gary Holton is a relative, he’s a very distant one. Today would be his 70th birthday. Sadly, he died at the age of 33 of an overdose of morphine and alcohol. In the mid-1980’s he joined forces with Norwegian musician Casino Steel, and they produced a couple of albums that sold well in Norway. “Baby I Love You” was written by Jeff Barry, Ellie Greenwich, and Phil Spector and originally recorded by the Ronettes in 1963. It has also been recorded by Andy Kim and The Ramones. This performance is from 1984.

  1. Like this bit of history and apparently you are nearly a rock star 🤩. The inclusion of the confederate flag on one of the keyboard stands is super weird!
