There was a frum band back in the 70s called “The Stanley Miller Band.” They put out a few albums* at the time. Does anyone remember them, and more importantly, did any of their albums ever make it to CD? I would love to listen to the music again, if it’s around somewhere.
*album – a round plastic disc with a hole in the middle. One would place it on something called a “record player,” drop a needle on it, and it would make beautiful music.March 8, 2011 2:37 pm at 2:37 pm #750026AinOhdMilvadoParticipant
I don’t know if they made any albums, or if they did, where they are available, but…
That name brought back memories.

I don’t think it’s available anywhere. I have “The Stanley Miller Band American Simcha” as an mp3 file. If the mods allow, I can email it to you, or post a link to a temporary “you send it” file.March 8, 2011 3:37 pm at 3:37 pm #750029cherrybimParticipant
Stanley Miller also played at my wedding and is a music talent.
Dr. Stanley I. Miller has been practicing holistic chiropractic in Brooklyn and Rockland for the past 25 years. I assume that he will answer your questions at:March 8, 2011 3:39 pm at 3:39 pm #750030
That would be awesome.
I would greatly appreciate it!

It would probably be a good idea to contact the copyright holder first.March 8, 2011 4:35 pm at 4:35 pm #750032csr1Participant
Is this the same Stanley Miller as the chiropractor? His website is: http://www.drstanleyimiller.com/March 8, 2011 4:38 pm at 4:38 pm #750033rebbetzin hocksteinMember
why don’t you contact the copyholder first? Great idea! Why don’t you check with Dr. Stanley Miller, chiropractor, in Monsey. He is the same Stanley Miller of the Stanley Miller band.March 8, 2011 5:31 pm at 5:31 pm #750034
They didn’t post the link I set up for download (totally understandable).

Daas Yochid, thanks for the info. Apparently it’s as easy as clicking on a link to try to contact Dr. Miller. (And that’s cool, I was wondering if it was the same person. I remember him from NCSY [open to the public] concerts in the seventies.)March 8, 2011 5:49 pm at 5:49 pm #750036guy-ochoMember
In gal-paz in Israel, for 100 Shekel ($28) they will fill up your iPod with the latest jewish music. How is this permitted? they are copying it numerous times and making money off of it.March 8, 2011 5:58 pm at 5:58 pm #750037bezalelParticipant

I believe they are the same. I just wasn’t sure enough to post it.March 8, 2011 6:19 pm at 6:19 pm #750038
Well, I did it – emailed Dr. Miller about the albums. I will post the reply when I receive one. Thanks for all your help.March 8, 2011 8:52 pm at 8:52 pm #750039cherrybimParticipant

WHAT? If it is music they have the copyright and the full rights to then they can sell it at any price they want. To do that is very dumb on their part, and I am quite suspicious to put it mildly.
However, Reb Moshe Goldman’s son sells his father AH’s albums for bulk download at a very low price, far lower than the stores, and as he is the copyright holder or at least the holder of the electronic music rights, he can do so (and it is probably his father’s ratzon that he do this as he did it before his father was niftar as well). Reb Moshe AH had other parnosso and I do not think he ever set out to make money on any of his albums; I think he really did it because it was his avoidas Hashem to compose as he did.
However, if that Gal-Paz deal includes any music from Noam Hafakot or Moishe Laufer, to name just two, then it is ossur and illegal.
Also, is this Gal-Paz doing it or their employees? I always felt that their employees were given free rein to do what they want (like changing money, and all kinds of little shtick deals) in both the NY and EY stores.June 29, 2018 1:09 pm at 1:09 pm #1549443
Yes, the Stanley Miller Band did indeed issue 3 albums during their career.
The band consisted of 6 musicians, 5 of them playing for 13 years together. That’s one reason there was a bit of magic in their music….they could literally (and actually did) play in their sleep…but, rarely played the music they did the same. They would constantly improvise on stage…but, that said, their main purpose was to be misameach the chosson and the kallah, and, I will bet most if not all will say they did.
Stanley (Simcha) would play his flute while jumping rope for the new couples….I saw that on numerous occasions. He was (and still IS) a superb flautist and is one of the best saxophone players I’ve ever hear.
The band would gyrate in step with the people on the dance floor.
There were many good chassunah bands during these years, but, there was only one Stanley Miller band.
They released 3 albums on vinyl, none of which were ever released any other way…which is a bit ironic as two members of the band were professional mastering engineers with thousand of CDs mastered. Hopefully, sometime in the future, this will be remedied.
Much more to say…maybe later.

That’s a record, not an album (those terms were used interchangeably at the time, of course).April 6, 2021 9:25 am at 9:25 am #1962709
It’s been such a long while since the last post on the Stanley Miller Band…there are even grandchildren of the couples who were married off..but take heed, perhaps in the near future, there will be some music released so that we can relive those heilig daysApril 6, 2021 10:08 am at 10:08 am #1962738
Lefty, are the old records being rereleased, or are they recording something new?April 20, 2021 3:24 pm at 3:24 pm #1966385
Initially, the old albums will be released…hopefully off of the original tapes…or what can be found of them, as it is quite some time since their original relases..but band members are planning to reunite for these productions. Please stay tuned as, I’m yirtze HaShem they hope to get started on things…in the right time.
