Maybe someone out there wrote liners > notes for the CD and just forgot to turn them over to the producers? Not too much trouble at all, Mark. In fact, I enjoyed digging my Reparata and the Delrons 45s out and remembering all the joy of those wonderful days. The following list is fairly comprehensive. I included all the credits listed on the singles. Since you were particularly interested in the writing credits, it might be interesting to note that Rep shares writing credits on four of the B-sides. I don't actually possess singles # 1, 20 and 21, so my information is limited in that regard. 1. YOUR BIG MISTAKE Ernie Maresca Reparata and the Delrons Laurie 3252 2. WHENEVER A TEENAGER CRIES E.

Message: 3 Date: Mon, 25 Aug 2003 10:34:33 -0400 From: Mike Edwards Subject: "One Less Bell To Answer" Geoff asks: > Does anyone know if anyone recorded "One Less Bell to Answer" before > the Fifth Dimension? Apparently Keely Smith did in 1967 on Atlantic. If anyone can play a copy of Keely's version to musica I'd appreciate it as it is on my wants list. Incidentally there is a very full Bacharach discography (with a search facility) at: http://www14.brinkster.com/hitmaker/ Like all good lists, it serves to remind you of the holes you have in your collection.

I just burned those lps along with a third one on Valiant onto CD since I never see any CD collections of Shelby's early stuff. -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 6 Date: Tue, 26 Aug 2003 08:13:28 +0100 From: Mick Patrick Subject: Re: RIP - Ed Townsend Original Message from Martin Roberts: > Thanks, Simon, for playing Ed Townsend's "Who Would Deny Me" > to musica, a cracking song and a new one to me. Mick Patrick, > in the 'good old days' of C.90s, was the first to introduce me > to the vocal recordings of Ed. At the time they were perhaps > to soulful for my tender ears but the tunes had that something > that kept me replaying them. I no longer have a tape player > but one track I remember very fondly is Ed's version of "Down > Home". Perhaps he'd care to play it to musica? OK, I've done as requested and played the Ed Townsend version of Goffin/King's "Down Home" to musica. It was issued on Liberty 55516 in 1962. Ed Silvers produced, while the 'arranged and conducted' credit goes to Bert Keyes. To my ears, Ed frequently sang out of tune but that kind of thing doesn't bother some folk and it doesn't prevent this being a fine record. Lend a shell- like: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/spectropop/files/musica/ By the way, the other side of the record is a pre-Exciters version of "Tell Her (Him)" which I can play it to musica if requested. However, there's no denying the great man's talent as a songwriter. In addition to the aforementioned "Foolish Fool" by Dee Dee Warwick, I'd like to recommend a few others: "What Does A Girl Do" - The Shirelles (Scepter) "Coming Back To You" - Maxine Brown (Wand) "Do It With All Your Heart" - Dee Dee Warwick (Blue Rock) "Tears Of Joy" - Chuck Jackson (Wand) "The Love Of My Man" - Theola Kilgore (Serock) "How Can I Forget" - Charlie Whitehead (Dynamo) "Since I Found You" - Maxine Brown (Wand) "I Might Like It" - The Shirelles (Scepter) "I Am A Witness" - Tommy Hunt (Wand) "That's Not Love" - Dee Dee Warwick (Mercury) "Gotta Find A Way" - Maxine Brown (Wand) Hey la, Mick Patrick -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 7 Date: Mon, 25 Aug 2003 20:26:49 -0000 From: John Henderson Subject: Del Shannon/Brian Hyland "Wasn't Del Shannon one of the people that kept Brian Hyland going? I remember reading in some liner notes, that Brian had thanked Del Shannon for being there when he almost gave up. I think Del Shannon's work from what I have read goes far beyond his actual vocal talents and deep inside the music industry with several artists." As has been mentioned, yes it was Del Shannon that got Brian Hyland to record "Gypsy Woman" at a point in his career when he really needed another hit. Del had input on the production too, I think. Interesting to note that playing keyboard is Max Crook who played the "musitron" on Runaway. Brian toured a few months ago with Bobby Vee, the Chiffons, Fabian and Tommy Roe. Friends and I saw them at Casino Rama in Ontario and Tommy was in great voice, his son was the drummer. -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

I know that both Cissy Houston and Dionne Warwick have both done the song but don't have a year. Cissy's version is on one of Burt's albums.

Message: 9 Date: Mon, 25 Aug 2003 20:31:33 +0000 From: Beatle Bob Subject: Re: Del Shannon Hey Art, Just a hot tip to you and all of the great Del Shannon fans out there. There is a great modern day garage/Britsh Invasion style band from Detroit called Freddy & The Four Gone Conclusions, that just released a cd entitled The Wigged Out Sounds Of... on one of my favorite U.S. labels:Get Hip Records. The cd has an unreleased Del Shannon composistion called 'Stand Up' and features Del's original keyboard wiz - Max Crook- playing his late 50's, custom-built, Musitron keyboard on this track. The rest of this cd is a standout as well. Beatle Bob -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
