This chapter focuses on the time after Andy and Nina signed with RCA at the end of 1966. It was a step up to one of the majors that already had demonstrated a commitment to black artists, among them Harry Belafonte and Nina's good friend Miriam Makeba. Andy had also formed Ninandy Music as the publisher for the couple's compositions and expanded his management duties by signing a handful of new acts. Most important, he had negotiated Nina's four-city tour with Bill Cosby, a young black comedian and actor and right now one of the hottest acts around. He was a co-star in the popular I Spy television series with Robert Culp and had already earned four gold records, the first comedian ever to do so. Eager to build on his success, Warner Bros., Cosby's label, had recently launched “Bill Cosby month” with a goal of selling a million albums in a six-week period.

Keywords:   Andy, Nina, RCA, black artists, Harry Belafonte, Miriam Makeba, Bill Cosby
