Nico - I'm Not Saying
I’m Not Sayin’' was the first original single release by Andrew Loog Oldham’s Immediate Records in August 1965. Written by Gordon Lightfoot and produced by Oldham, the song features a haunting vocal by Nico, backed by beautiful orchestration arranged and conducted by David Whittaker with The Rolling Stones’ Brian Jones on guitar with Jimmy Page. The song was chosen by Morrissey as a Desert Island Discs choice on BBC Radio Four. The gatefold sleeve features photography by Gered Mankowitz from the original recording session. The original b-side ‘The Last Mile’ was a co-write between Oldham and the-then Immediate Records’ musical director, Jimmy Page.
