Message: 1 Date: Fri, 12 Sep 2003 17:07:39 +0100 From: S'pop Team Subject: New at S'pop: The Beverley Jones Story The public singing debut of Beverley Jones, the S'pop Team's favourite BritGirl du jour, took place at the Electric Light Club in Alderman's Green, Coventry. She was just 4-years-old. To encourage his reluctant daughter to sing that night, her father promised to buy her something special as a reward. So Beverley got up and performed an old song entitled 'Little Mister Baggy Britches'. Dad bought Beverley a blue plastic handbag the next day. Within a decade she had become something of a local celebrity, known as Coventry's answer to Brenda Lee, soon to embark on a recording career. Mick Patrick met up with her recently and captured her story for posterity. Click here for the full deal: http://www.spectropop.com/BeverleyJones/index.htm Beverley's best record, "Hear You Talking", cut with London- based beat group the Prestons in 1964, is currently playing at musica. Gosh, could that be Jimmy Page on guitar?! Take a listen and see if you agree: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/spectropop/files/musica/ Enjoy!

Message: 6 Date: Thu, 11 Sep 2003 21:43:07 -0000 From: Ian Chapman Subject: Dickie Goodman All this talk of Dickie Goodman thread made me dig out "Senate Hearing", which he cut on 20th Century in '63. At the hearing of crime syndicate boss "Little Joe LaVacci" the cut-ins are provided by the Angels, Crystals, Jaynettes, Essex, Stevie Wonder, the Miracles, Dion and Jan & Dean.

It's available on Rhino's "Have A Nice Day #6" and Varese Sarabande's "Dick Bartley Presents: On The Radio #2". I think The Buoys LP is also available as a CD reissue on Collectables. -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 8 Date: Thu, 11 Sep 2003 16:45:35 -0700 (PDT) From: Steve Harvey Subject: Beatle's Early Invasion Before the Fabs came to the US George came over to Benton, IL to visit his sister. The local radio station interviewed him in 1963 and was probably the first to play Beatles stuff due to his sister, Louise, bugging them all the time to give his kid brother's band a spin. While over here George played with a local band doing Hank Williams and Chuck Berry covers. He also picked up some lps including the one by James Ray (who died in the 60s and seems to be forgotten by most). That's where George heard "I've Got My Mind Set On You". The rest is history. I finally found the LP on C on Collectables for $6 last year. They were deleting it. -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 9 Date: Thu, 11 Sep 2003 23:48:46 GMT From: Mark Subject: Re: The Younghearts Hi James! Here's an interesting factoid regarding the Tempos/Younghearts' output for Canterbury: When they switched to Minit, they re-recorded both songs ("Countdown: Here I Come" and "Little Togetherness"). Sad to say, the remade "Countdown" sucks swampwater (the original on Canterbury is FAR better); I'd hate to hear how bad the revamped "Little Togetherness" is, considering that the original is my favorite Northern soul tune.

Message: 16 Date: Fri, 12 Sep 2003 08:16:34 +0100 From: Austin Powell Subject: James Ray James's version of this Rudy Clark song (he also wrote "If You Gotta Make A Fool....") was on his (only ?) LP, "James Ray" released on Caprice (LP/SLP 1002).....It's listed as "I've Got My Mind Set On You Pt. 1 Pt 2 but is only 3 mins 28 seconds long ! Strangely the track wasn't included on a 1983 vinyl, sort of "Best Of..." release by UK's Charly Records. My very battered LP says all tracks were recorded at Regent Sound Studios with Robert Liftin as engineer. Six of the twelve tracks were Rudy Clark songs. Has anyone seen a James Ray CD ?

Um.....who's holding out? Brian's been touring the world to critical and popular acclaim since 1999, and has released several livealbums during that time. As of right now he is working on a studio album, putting the finishing touches on a show he will headline next month for the Carl Wilson Foundation at Royce Hall on the campus of UCLA with Sir Elton John, and rehearsing for the mind-boggling premier of the Smile tour, which begins in England in January.

Message: 19 Date: Fri, 12 Sep 2003 13:43:56 +0000 From: Stuffed Animal Subject: Tallyrand Music/Sammy Turner Mike Rashkow: > I don't know anything about Shadow helping Jeff and or Ellie > run Talleyrand. I doubt it. Actually Talleyrand was Neil > Diamond's publishing company - Jeff and Ellie had no part > in it. Not so! Jeff Barry and Ellie Greenwich helped Neil Diamond start Tallyrand Music in the mid 1960s, and they were co-owners of this publishing company with Neil. Some years later, they let him buy out their shares. Can someone please post an obituary for Sammy Turner? Don't direct me to a website . . . post an obit. I want to know how he died.

Back in 1975, I wrote a jingle for Sugar Crisp and I could swear that at the session the person doing the voice of Sugar Bear was introduced to me as Jerry Keller (I remember him looking somewhat bearish with a cast on his recently broken arm). I also remember the beautiful Bing Crosby-like voice. However, on the search engines I've only seen the name Sterling Holloway given credit as the voice of Sugar Bear.

Well Sterling Holloway certainly had a high, sort of squeaky voice, so the Crosbyish voice used for Sugar Bear could not have been his (and thus may still have been Jerry Keller's). If yours' was the "Can't get enough of Super Sugar Crisp" jingle, it was a gooder! --Phil M. -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
