Steve Barri

Considered one of the most enduring music makers of the 1960s and 1970s, Steve Barri began his career as a staff producer/writer with Dunhill Records where he produced such hits as “Dizzy” by Tommy Roe, the Grass Roots’ seminal debut album “Where Were You When I Needed You” (as well as subsequent albums), Barry McGuire’s global hit “Eve of Destruction,” “You Baby” (The Turtles), “A Must to Avoid” (Herman’s Hermits), and “Ain’t No Love in the Heart of the City” (Bobby Bland). He went on to produce Mama Cass (including all her 1969 hits). In 1975 he formed funk group Rhythm Heritage and had hits with TV theme songs including “Theme From S.W.A.T” and “Keep Your Eye on the Sparrow” from“ Barretta.”  He also produced John Sebastian’s 1976 album “Welcome Back.”
