Loewe began to visit the Lambs Club, a hangout for theater performers, producers and directors, he credited The Lambs for keeping him working until his career expanded, left a share of his royalties of Brigadoon to The Lambs Foundation. He met Alan Jay Lerner there in 1942, their first collaboration was a musical adaptation of Barry Connor's farce The Patsy, called Life of the Party, for a Detroit stock company. It enjoyed a nine-week run and encouraged the duo to join forces with Arthur Pierson for What's Up?, which opened on Broadway in 1943.

Patti Dahlstrom

Patti Dahlstrom is a respected singer/songwriter, recording artist and teacher. Born in Texas, she cut four albums in the seventies, co-wrote the Helen Reddy hit "Emotion", before enjoying a renaissance and renewed visibility in 2010. Dahlstrom was one of five children born in Houston, her aspirations to become a singer were evident from an early age. Having started to make up songs in her pre-teens, she was writing by the time of her adolescence, was given to examining record sleeves for the songwriting credits while burnishing dreams of seeing her own name in such a setting. In 1967, she left Texas to pursue a career in music in Los Angeles. After three years of struggling, Dahlstrom broke into the world of professional songwriting, she was signed to the publishing division of Motown, where she was mentored by Berry Gordy. She struck up a fruitful and enduring songwriting relationship with Severin Browne, brother of Jackson Browne. Russ Regan signed her to Uni Records and, in 1972, her first album, the Toxey French-produced Patti Dahlstrom, was released.

Moving to 20th Century Records, headed by Regan, she followed with three more albums, The Way I Am, Your Place or Mine, Livin It Thru, produced by Michael J Jackson and Michael Omartian, Jack Conrad and Bill Schnee, Larry Knechtel respectively. The albums featured an impressive cast of musicians and prominently displayed Dahlstrom's gritty, engaging vocal style and her perspicacious songwriting. Among the notable songs from Dahlstrom's 20th Century tenure was'Sending My Good Thoughts To You', which she co-wrote with Artie Wayne, dedicated to her friend Jim Croce. Implicit in the song's lyric is the notion of continuing a loving friendship with someone after that person's death, this consoling message has helped it endure. In one of her most plaintive and subtly heart-rending vocal performances to date, Dahlstrom included the song on Your Place or Mine in 1975. Despite the fact that there was no break out hit single for Dahlstrom herself, her popularity as a songwriter for other recording artists was considerable.

Notable among the recordings of her work are "Ain't No Way To Rise Above" by Anne Murray. Dahlstrom's second album, The Way I Am, included "Emotion", a song that had arisen when Artie Wayne, Warner Brothers Publishing's General Manager, brought a copy of a Véronique Sanson album to Patti, with a view to her providing English lyrics. Dahlstrom was taken by the song "Amoureuse", set it to her own words to form "Emotion". Confusingly, there was another contemporaneous English version of the song, with translated lyrics by Gary Osborne, which retained the title'Amoureuse'. However, it was Dahlstrom's version, recorded by Helen Reddy, that became a US #22 and US AC #1 hit in 1974. In 2009, Véronique Sanson declared in an interview to the French magazine Platine that Dahlstrom's version remains her favorite version of Amoureuse. In the seventies, Dahlstrom's recording career came to an end when she declined the opportunity to make a fifth album, was, by her own request, released from her contract.

She cited exhaustion among the reasons for the decision. Years Russ Regan publicly disclosed his surprise and confusion that Dahlstrom's albums had not been high-profile successes, saying, "In my career there are two female singer/songwriters who I signed, that should've been stars, Patti Dahlstrom and Harriet Schock", she continued to pursue songwriting through the seventies and eighties, as well as branching out into photography. Photographic assignments included working on set with Robert Altman and shooting an album cover and 1978 tour book for John Denver. Returning to Texas in 1990, Dahlstrom taught songwriting at The Art Institute of Houston before swiftly being made Department Director. In addition to teaching, she pursued studies of her own, including a degree in Liberal Arts. Following a birthday trip to England in 2007, Dahlstrom decided to move to London in 2008, undertaking a Masters in Professional Writing, she lived there until 2011, when she was convinced to move to San José del Cabo, Mexico.

In March 2010, the CD Emotion - The Music of Patti Dahlstrom was released by Rev-ola. The 20 track compilation, drawing on Dahlstrom's four albums, was the culmination of renewed internet-based interest in her music, mounting for several years; the package contained a 24-page booklet with essay by Mick Patrick, revitalised sound quality consequent to work by Norman Blake and Joe Foster, design and artwork by Andy Morten. Engineering was by Nick Robbins. Norman Seeff's striking photographs of Dahlstrom were used throughout; the compilation scored a four-star review by Kingsley Abbott in Record Collector magazine.
