Jerry Ragovoy, R. I. P.

Jerry Ragovoy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: "Jordan 'Jerry' Ragovoy (September 4, 1930 – July 13, 2011)[1][2] was an American songwriter and record producer.

His best-known composition 'Time Is on My Side' (written under the pseudonym of Norman Meade) was made famous by The Rolling Stones, although it had been recorded earlier by Kai Winding and Irma Thomas. Ragovoy also wrote 'Stay With Me', which was originally recorded by Lorraine Ellison, and was performed by Mary J. Blige at the 49th Grammy Awards."
