SOURCES
1 The composer of "As The Clouds Drift By" is only given as "Brodsky" on the various 7" releases but his / her full name was included in the Library of Congress Copyright Office registration of the song: http://archive.org/details/catalogofco1966320512libr.
A Library of Congress Copyright Office registration for the song "Be My Best Friend" from 1972 is as follows:
BE MY BEST FRIEND; w & m Sandra Brodsky, a.k.a. Sandy Kane. 1 p. © Sandy Brodsky, a.k.a. Sandy Kane; 30Dec71; EU3 04601.
So is this the same "Sandy Brodsky" as the composer of "As The Clouds Drift By"? It seems very likely but I've not been able to confirm it. If someone can help please email me at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
