I think he now lives in Vegas and I > believe is married to Linda November. How interesting, my wife was raised as a Jehovah's Witness. She left the fold many, many moons ago. As might be evident from her being married to a lunatic/atheist Jew. I have learned that the Witnesses are not quite the "cult" religion as they are so often portrayed. Just another branch of the tree--though they have some "different" ideas and do proselytize rather agressively. More importantly, who is Linda November? Does that have something to do with being a Playmate of the month? Is she related to January Jones, Frederick March, April Stevens, June Taylor?

All I could find on Linda November are some of her achievements as a backing singer for Al Kooper (Al's Big Deal/Unclaimed Freight), Don McLean (Homeless brother) and Jimi Hendrix (Loose ends). Anybody know of any others ? Eddy -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Rashkovsky: > who is Linda November? According to Nyro's biog Stoned Soul, Linda November was a backing vocalist on La Laura's debut LP "More Than A New Discovery" (aka "The First Songs"), along with the Hi Fashions and Toni Wine. Mike Carter: > One, that I have to know about and hope someone here can > shed some light, is "How Am I Gonna Leave You" written and > performed by BABS COOPER. This is just like a coca-cola. > One is not enough. A Fabulous track. The intro is to die > for. Where can I find the flip side and more???? I agree, the "Soda Pop Babies" CD is an excellent compilation. Sparkling sound, thirst-quenching track selection and refreshinging packaging too. Heck, it even contains "Just Let Me Cry" by Mina. How bubbliceous is that?! To those who like their pop princesses of the Little Peggy, Brenda Lee and Connie Francis variety, it's a bit of a must have. Babs Cooper? I stand to be corrected, but I think she later joined the Womenfolk. Hey la, Mick Patrick -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 10 Date: Sun, 14 Sep 2003 16:49:05 +0100 From: Stuart Miller Subject: Re: Linda November Shame on Mike Rashkow, shame on you!! Artie is not shacked up with some former playmate or centrefold. Linda November is an extremely well known background/jingles singer out of New York who sang on a load of hits (as they all did). In fact she was mentioned on this site maybe a week or so ago. So not only have you never heard of her but you're not reading the posts properly either! I think Spectro administrators should be told. I reluctantly sense a thread here. Do your worst Mr R. As many singers etc. with months of the year in their names as you can think of, and while we're about it, ditto singers with days of the week in their names too!. If this gets rapidly out of hand, can I offer my apologies now to the rest of you. And you are quite right Mike about the Witnesses. The only one I know is a perfectly rational, normal human being quite capable of social discourse and who never mentions his religion unless asked about it. Phil M, are you suggesting that there aren't any god-fearing folk in Vegas? Tut tut. Stuart -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

My two favorite sides by him are Darling Be Home Soon for the Spoonful and Emily's Illness by Nora Guthrie. I'm sure there are dozens more masterpieces where those come from. --Phil M. -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

I have a confession to make. I'm all Artied out. There are soooo many significant Arties in the world of Spectropop I can't keep track of 'em. I read credits on CD's and rekkids. Artie this and Artie that did a bunch of production/songwriting/what-have-you stuff. I would really like for one of our distinguished panel of experts (if we really have one) to make a list of Arties. Who they are. Who they were. What they did. So I can follow along. Thanks. And you Arties, don't hesitate to speak for yourselves either! Jimmy Butler Schroek, etc. -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 14 Date: Sun, 14 Sep 2003 17:10:47 -0000 From: Bob Subject: Audiosonic Stereo Studios Acetate Hi, I have posted a label photo of an acetate presented to me by Bobby Vee several years ago of a song titled "Mr. and Mrs". We used the song as one of the bonus cuts on the "I Remember Buddy Holly" cd issued on EMI circa 1991. We were never able to find out who the writer of the song was. The demo, as you can see by the photo was recorded at the Brill Building studio and the song was published by Sheldon Music. Can anyone out there help solve this mystery? Thanks!

Not to add to the confusion, but there's an April March too. Married to Warren Zanes, formerly of the Del Fuegoes and a recording artist in her own right.

Message: 16 Date: Sun, 14 Sep 2003 18:46:29 +0100 From: John Clarke Subject: Re: Bobby Lee Trammell The story of the wayward Bobby Lee Trammell is recounted in full in the splendid sleeve notes to his CD on Bear Family "You Mostest Girl" (BCD15887) which includes New Dance in France (Sims 183). Dance was cut in Memphis in 1963 when rockabilly performer Trammell had revamped himself as "The First American Beatle" and features Travis Wammack on lead guitar. Canned applause was also added to make it sound like a live recording. John Clarke -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 17 Date: Sun, 14 Sep 2003 15:52:18 -0400 From: Keith D'Arcy Subject: Mr. Mark Eric Malmborg Hey All, Here's an odd revelation: I was listening to The Four Freshmen "Today Is Tomorrow" LP on Liberty today (not tomorrow), and I realized there's a track on it written by one Mark Malmborg, called "When School Is Out This Year." Is this a known thing (like was it referred to in the liner notes to the Rev-Ola reissue of "A Midsummer's Daydream")? It's a pretty cool track. Cheers, Keith -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 18 Date: Sun, 14 Sep 2003 09:19:59 +0100 From: "Martin" Subject: Jack Nitzsche Update The new Record Of The Week is Edgar Alan and the Po' Boys' "Panic Button" (Rust), arranged and co-written by Jack with Marty Cooper, who also produced it. How cool to find Jack's name cropping up on the unlikeliest of labels and comforting to know that, try as I might, the discography looks like it will never be complete! http://www.spectropop.com/JackNitzsche/index.htm Next week's choices are both excellent: Terry Stafford's "A Little Bit Better" or Billy Ford's "This Is Worth Fighting For". Nitzsche on Radio the is playing the first of the three drum demos. http://www.spectropop.com/JackNitzsche/radio.htm (Drum roll please) There's also a new article, Hertbeat FM, A Jack Nitzsche special broadcast, "the jukebox drive-in with Robbie Owen", 31st August 2003. Roll those drums, sound those trumpets, in fact bring on the whole symphony for "Al Hazan and Jack Nitzsche's Record of the Week": http://www.spectropop.com/JackNitzsche/earlydays.htm The first track is...The Starr Sisters, "Every Beat Of My Heart". Seemingly unreleased but recorded for United Artists, later covered by Cindy Malone, a super Girl Group track from '63. Al has written about the session and supplied a super picture of the former Lute recording artists. Don't miss it! Martin -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Message: 20 Date: Sun, 14 Sep 2003 21:22:21 -0000 From: Martin Jensen Subject: Jack Nitzsche productions Hi I recently stumbled across the superb Jack Nitzche produced 'Daddy, You Just Gotta Let Him In' by the Satisfactions. This track really made me realize how much the man's brilliant string arrangements played a part in the overall 'wall of sound'. Now, I've only heard VERY few Nitzsche produced tracks, so my question is this: has he produced other sides in the Spector mould? If so, I would just love to track them down... Actually, someone should compile a collection of great Spector soundalikes. A CD of such songs surely would bring stars to my eyes. :-) Martin Denmark -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Hello, Keith Yes it is the very same Mark Eric-I read somewhere that he had gotten a song placed with the Four Freshmen. The Mark Eric LP is one of my favorite albums and I'm glad it has gotten some attention of late. I found a copy back in 1989 and I really thought of it as an outstanding example of California pop. I especially love the track "Lynn's Baby" - melodic pop at its finest! I have some questions on this album - what year did it come out in? I have it on the Revue label and it doesn't have any info on the release date. I originally guessed late '67 but I think the Revola website said 1969 was the year of release - I couldn't believe I was two years off.

For some reason I keep getting Artie Schroek and Artie Resnick mixed up...I guess because I have lots of records with their names on the labels! Oddly enough I was going through some LPs last night and found an LP by Artie Schroek I had forgotten I had-it's called "Hello World, Meet Today's People" on Evolution 2004. Produced by Robert Byrne and arranged and conducted by Artie Schroeck. I gotta start paying more attention! Best, Art Longmire -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
