Message: 1 Date: Sat, 30 Aug 2003 12:23:38 +0100 From: Mick Patrick Subject: Re: Alder Ray Here's an Alder Ray discography for Jimmy, Mark, John and anyone else who might be interested. It might not be quite complete and it does not include the records she made for the Challenge label as a member of the Delicates. Can anyone add to it? As Alder Ray: 'Cause I Love Him/A Little Love (Will Go A Long Way) (Liberty 55715, 1964) I Need You Baby/My Heart Is In Danger (Minit 32005, 1966) Love Will Let You Down/Run Baby Run (Revue 11014, 1968) As Alder Ray Mathis: I Want To Get Married/Take Me Baby (Jetstar 122, 1970) As Alder Ray Black & the Fame Gang: Just Because The Package Has Been Unwrapped (Doesn't Mean The Merchandise Is Spoiled)/Put Your Trust In Me (You Can Depend On me) (Sound Plus 2102, 1976) I've posted a nice '70s pic of Alder to the S'pop photo file: http://photos.groups.yahoo.com/group/spectropop/lst Hey la, Mick Patrick -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 2 Date: Fri, 29 Aug 2003 19:22:35 -0000 From: Tony Bayliss Subject: Lee Hazlewood Just come across an interesting E.P. on Mercury MEP - 87. The title is 'The Lee Hazlewood Autobiography' by Lee Hazlewood. It is very funny, performed with a droll delivery and only a guitar backing. It appears to be a promo for his album 'Trouble is a Lonesome Town'. There are 6 tracks: 1: Who Is Lee Hazlewood. 2: Moved From Place Of Birth. 3: His Girl In High School. 4: In The Army. 5: Disc Jockey. 6: Record Biz.

Message: 3 Date: Fri, 29 Aug 2003 18:55:25 -0500 From: Charles G. Hill Subject: Wendy and Bonnie Quoting Art Longmire: > One of the earliest kiddie-pop records I heard was one called > "Mill Valley" back in 1970. I later purchased it and have always > liked it very much (wish I could get it on CD). Another CD that > I didn't hear was one by two sisters named Wendy and Bonnie that > came out a while back, recordings originally done in the late 60s. > Does anybody recommend this, and what does it sound like? Wendy and Bonnie's "Genesis" (Skye SK 1006D, 1969, reissued as Sundazed SC11089 with five bonus tracks) is utterly lovely San Francisco psychedelia with a slightly jazzy feel, perhaps due to the fact that Skye was primarily a jazz label. The girls' last name, aptly, was Flower. The instrumentation is first-rate, with Larry Carlton on guitar, Jim Keltner on drums, Michael Lang and Mike Melvoin doing the keyboards, and Randy Clerly on bass. No orchestral sweetening: this is tight small-combo music with gorgeous harmonies on top. Reissue producer Irwin Chusid (there's another name you've heard before) says that what killed their career was a horrific double play: the sudden collapse of their record company, followed quickly by the death of producer Gary McFarland. This being a Sundazed reissue, you know it's going to sound as good as it possibly can; the bonus tracks are home demos that might have been worked up for the second album that never was. It's definitely worth some of your time. -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 4 Date: Sat, 30 Aug 2003 16:33:06 +0100 From: Mick Patrick Subject: Re: Reparata Phil Milstein: > Many thanks to all who contributed to the recent flurry of Reparata > & The Delrons discographical information. Excellent work, and much- > needed indeed! I agree. Thank goodness there are people out there who still collect original 45s, as opposed to mp3s or crappy bootleg CDs. Without such folk, vital label copy would be lost forever. To me, songwriters and producers are as important as the performing artists. I enjoy looking at records almost as much as listening to them. Well, almost! :-) > Did they ever get to release a proper LP? Also, would we be correct > in assuming "Hash Brown" is aka Harry Lookofsky?

Message: 5 Date: Sat, 30 Aug 2003 15:47:45 +0100 From: Ian Slater Subject: Re: Reparata & the Delrons writing credits Robert: > Thanks Ian for the info regarding the B-side of Your Big Mistake > as well as single #22 Just You/There's So Little Time. I was not > aware of its existence. Is it chronologically the 22nd single? The record is, like most US pressings, free of any mention of issue dates. However, the "Goldmine" price guide gives the year of issue as 1971 which would place it in front of "Octopus's Garden", 1972, "Shoes", and "Jesibee Lancer" (both 1975). The same source gives "I've Got An Awful Lot of Losing To Do" as the flip of "..the Bowery" (Kapp 989) thus filling that gap in the discography. This track (actually "I've Got an Awful Lot of Losing You to Do" is on Kapp K-2050 already in Robert's discography. So, I've tried putting this together with all the dates I can glean to form the following revised discography. I'm sure there'll be more contributions to be made so please come forward if anyone can add to or correct this list. I should add that some of the info. may be incomplete because in many cases I have European issues of the records and some (e.g. the German issue of Octopus's Garden) give few details. 1.

Mark F: > Krimson Kake were Kris Ife and Samantha Jones. It was a one off > single written by Mark Wirtz and Kris. Perhaps Mark will chime in > with some details behind this great song. Mark F, as always, is quite correct. I produced and co-wrote it with Kris Ife as a "one off" single during the Samantha Jones album ("Sam") sessions. Remember, those were still the "singles" days, during which "one offs" were the norm in a shotgun aproach to producing/releasing records, playing the odds of maybe "HITting" something, then following it up with "more' in the event of a "bullseye." Obviously, Krimson Kake missed the target. Happy you like the thing, We certainly had a lot of fun recording it. mark wirtz www.markwirtz.cohttp:// -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 7 Date: Sat, 30 Aug 2003 16:33:04 +0100 From: Mick Patrick Subject: Re: Jerry Keller Rashkovsky: > OBVIOUSLY I DON'T KNOW JACK S--T. > I MEANT JACK KELLER NOT JERRY. > DON'T HAVE A CLUE WHO JERRY IS. Hey Mike, *everybody* gets Jack and Jerry Keller mixed up! :-) In fact, I wouldn't mind betting they receive each others songwriter royalties. A while back I was called upon to write a paragraph about Jerry. Here's what I came up with: Born in Arkansas in 1937 and raised in Oklahoma, JERRY KELLER got an early taste for performing as a member of the Tulsa Boy Singers touring gospel chorale. In high school he led his own quartet, the Lads Of Note. He moved to New York in 1956 in search of solo stardom. Three years later, with a little help from his pal Pat Boone (they met at church, natch), he was signed by the Kapp label for whom he immediately delivered the Top 20 hit 'HERE COMES SUMMER'. His touring schedule took him to the U.K. where his presence helped his sunny anthem reach #1. Keller's releases continued for many years but, with the exception of the 1961 near- hit 'Be Careful How You Drive, Young Joey', the clean-cut fellow never achieved another chart record, although Andy Williams' 1964 seller 'Almost There' and 'Turn-Down Day', a Top 20 entry for the Cyrcle two years later, both carried his name as a composer. There, *now* you have a clue who he is. :-) Hey la, Mick Patrick -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

And their followup was their version of "Seattle" (Colgems 66-5009) which Keith just talked about. Jeff http://lostjukebox.tripod.com -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Thanks for the ad; it's great. This is a great Christmas single! I've got a stone mint copy of this; remind me to play "Loneliest Christmas Tree" to musica in December. While she does sound girlish in a Diana Ross sort of way (though more soulful), I would never have guessed that she was only 11 at the time! And the Canterbury Lisa Miller LP (WITHIN MYSELF) is fabulous as has been mentioned here already. Those of you who know Lisa Mychols, I burned a copy of it for her as possible material for her forthcoming covers CD (and she loved it too).

Message: 11 Date: Sat, 30 Aug 2003 17:26:53 -0000 From: Kory Subject: Lena Zavaroni River Deep - Mountain High is on her 1974 album remarkably recorded on the Stax label. It was produced by Tommy Scott for Ashtree Holdings and arranged by Arthur Greenslade. The album boasts big sounds and big production, but unfortunately, the rest of the LP tanks big time with songs: Rock-A-Bye Your Baby With a Dixie Melody, Pennies From Heaven, Ma, He's Making Eyes at Me. Her precociousness practically throws you up against the wall and makes you beg for mercy. HOWEVER, there is another track to tickle and tease. It's her version of Help Me Make It Through The Night. Wrong on many levels! A ten year old singing "take the ribbon from my hair...lay it soft against my skin... come lay down by my side...euwwww! So bad, I had to include it in one of my "Soft Rock Train Wrecks" comps (a little out of time from the rest of the 60s inclusions but worthy). best, Kory -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
