Eleanora Fagan b. Philadelphia PA Apir 7, 1915 / d. NYC July 17, 1959 (44)

Ruth Lowe (August 12, 1914 – January 4, 1981) was a Canadian pianist and songwriter. She wrote the song after her husband died during surgery. The song was later covered by many artists, including Frank Sinatra and The Ink Spots.

In 1936, Ruth was working in the 'Song Shop' in Toronto when Ina Ray Hutton brought her all-female band (the Melodiers) to town. Her piano player had taken ill, and Ina was frantically trying to locate a good-looking blonde lady replacement. Ruth Lowe auditioned, and became the regular pianist in Ina Ray's band. At age 23 (1938), Ruth married Harold Cohen, a Chicago music publicist. It was a very happy marriage that only lasted one year until Harold's tragic demise during an operation in 1939. In her deep grief, Ruth returned to live in Toronto. In her lonely apartment, she composed "I'll Never Smile Again".

The song "I'll Never Smile Again" was first heard on the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's (CBC) radio program Music By Faith, in an arrangement by Canadian musician Percy Faith, who would soon go on to fame in the USA and the world. Approximately a year later, Ruth passed a copy of the tune to a saxophone player in the Tommy Dorsey band, hoping to have Dorsey hear the tune. Dorsey thought the tune had much merit, and arranged it for his very young singer, Frank Sinatra. It was Sinatra's first great hit, and really launched Sinatra on his phenomenal career. Later she wrote the lyrics for still another Frank Sinatra hit, "Put Your Dreams Away (For Another Day)", Frank's 'signature' song, (which was also played at his funeral). The tune was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 1982.

Although I took this from the B side of the single ‘I Am A Rock’, the song was included on the LP Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme. It seems that every S&G album had one or two hidden gems on them. And they stand the test of time.

According to a July 14, 1967 article on Warwick in Time, Bacharach stated, "She has a tremendous strong side and a delicacy when singing softly — like miniature ships in bottles."

Warwick was signed to Bacharach's and David's production company. In November 1962, Scepter Records released her first solo single, "Don't Make Me Over"

He started playing in Toronto when he was only 17 in a band called Brannigan’s Boys which made one album for the Dominion Records label in 1970. That was when he wrote My Green Valleys! As a multi-

His association with producer / musician Fred McKenna lead him to the set of CBC TVs Singalong Jubilee, which Reid appeared on for a couple of seasons. He was also a sideman for the John Allan Cameron Show, Harry Hibbs Show and The George Hamilton IV Show.  It’s been recorded by The Wolftones, Tommy Makem, The Irish Rovers and about 30 other artists.

This song was the first song on Jack Bruce’s first solo album ‘Songs for a Tailor’  released in 1969. Actually, it was his second solo album; the first one stayed hidden on a shelf while Bruce was still performing in Cream with Eric Clapton and Ginger Baker. For some strange reason Ellen’s first album was released after the second album. So the first album is really the second album and the second one is really the first.

The song was written by Jack Bruce with words by his poet friend, Pete Brown, who penned most of the original songs in the Cream’s repertoire.
