I'll start with these: Artie Ripp, Artie Butler, Artie Kornfeld, Artie Resnick, and just for the hell of it..how about Brooks Artie--anyone buy into that?

It's definitely sort of light sunshine pop. The liner notes say that they were heavily influenced by the Mamas and the Papas. One thing I notice about this group-one of the members has possibly the most unusual facial hair I've ever seen-makes him look like a Satanist or a vampire. And the other three look so clean cut!

Message: 3 Date: Sun, 14 Sep 2003 23:20:27 +0100 From: Ken Mortimer Subject: Re: The Breakaways / Vicki Brown Thanks Artie For jogging my memory - the other version I have of 'From the Inside' is by Yvonne Elliman (now what on earth became of Yvonne Elliman???). I'm really interested to hear that Cilla Black overed the song as well - that's a version I must hear so I'll start looking about. Thanks for the info. Take care. -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

There is one really great song on there called "Please Phil Spector". The writer and singer is unknown, but I know that Ellie Greenwich, Mikie Harris and Jeannie Thomas sang back-up.

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. Yes Keith, I mentioned the "When School is Out This Year" track in my liner notes to the Rev-Ola reissue. I wanted to include the song on the reissue, but since Mark isn't the artist that recorded the song, it obviously would have been inappropriate. Unfortunately, he was unable to locate his demo version of the song. Mark on the track: "That was a dream come true. Yeah. And it was kinda by accident because I had been trying to get a recording contract since I was sixteen." Steve Stanley -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 7 Date: Sun, 14 Sep 2003 22:55:22 -0000 From: Ron Sauer Subject: Re: Spector on A & E Not sure if it has been mentioned here but A & E is having Phil as the subject of "Biography" on Tuesday, 09 -16. They called it a "premiere" so I assume it's new. Ron -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 8 Date: Sun, 14 Sep 2003 23:19:17 +0000 From: David Young Subject: Phil Spector on TV Greetings, gang, I'm pleased to announce that the subject of this coming Tuesday night's "Biography" on A&E is none other than Mr. Phil Spector. It's scheduled to be shown at 8:00 p.m. and again at midnight here in Seattle, and I'll plan to have each of two VCRs record it both times so I'll have three copies for those who want to see the program but don't get that network. Unfortunately, despite the fact that there were two posts here recently about an upcoming appearance by Phil on CNN, apparently each of the messages had incorrect information and I missed it. It would appear that he was a guest on "Paula Zahn Today" on Friday night, not some other show on Saturday or Sunday as suggested here by the well-meaning posters. Would someone who successfully taped the Zahn appearance kindly contact me off list? Also write me privately about my spare videotapes of the A&E special.

Message: 12 Date: Sun, 14 Sep 2003 19:58:54 -0700 (PDT) From: Steve Harvey Subject: Walmart of Sound There was a vinyl bootleg with such pseudo-Spector productions. I think 'Daddy, You Just Gotta Let Him In' by the Satisfactions was on it too. -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 13 Date: Sun, 14 Sep 2003 23:44:41 -0400 From: Country Paul Subject: Connors/Spector; Twilettes; Paul Harris; RIP... First, I got this e-mail from Carol Connors today (Sunday): > A&E's biography tuesday nite sept.16 8 p.m.....me!!!! Well actually it's a biography of Phil Spector, airing on A&E. The 8pm starting time is Eastern and Pacific; "consult local listings," etc. Next, for the past few weeks, I've been enjoying a highly strange 45 via the net about which I know nothing beyond the artist and title: The Twilettes, "Where's My Baby." The sound is 2 1/2 minutes of magnificence - a low-budget but effective Spectorian track, an astonishingly haunting call-and-response gospel vocal, and, for the first 90 seconds or so, eloquent lyrics (my favorite line: "My heart is still broken / waiting for the door to open.") In the last minute, the lyric descends to the pits of triteness and literalism, hitting its nadir with, "Did he join the Navy or the Marines?" But then again, there's that sound, that gorgeous sound. So: (1) Does anyone have any info on this, please - label, producer, writer, background? (2) Does anyone have it available to play to musica, or is it in print somewhere? (3) Think about it - "The Twilettes" sounds close to the French "toilettes" - would I the only person to make this unfortunate connection in my [dirty] mind? Last new business: am I the only person using Internet Explorer finding that I can listen to one piece on musica, but when it comes time to try for a second, IE refuses to behave? On or off-list help welcome. Catching up on "old business".... Keith D'Arcy, Re: Smokey And His Sister/US 1967 WB LP: > The LP was produced by Paul Harris (don't know the scoop on him), > and it's good, but not as magical as those 45s. Paul Harris was, I believe, an Elektra producer who, if memory serves, produced the early Elektra rock sampler with four groups including The Doors and The Lovin' Spoonful. To Robert Stewart, David Young, Mick P., and all involved with the Spector/Drifters/Big Top thread, thank you! I have nothing factual to add, only these compliments: (1) your erudition blows me away, and (2) it's knowledge like this that makes S'pop the encyclopedic archive of record that it is. Finally, RIP Warren Zevon, Johnny Cash and John Ritter. I met Zevon twice - sober and totally blasted - and liked the former better. Superb talent; hell of a way to go. Re: Cash, I loved his sound and his integrity from the first time I heard "I Walk The Line." WFMU and WNTI in Hackettstown, NJ (www.wnti.org) played some remarkable tributes to him; the guy on 'NTI made a comment I agree with that Cash's body was still alive, but his heart died when his wife, June Carter Cash, did. May he find a special place with his beloved in the heaven he sang about so eloquently. Country Paul (still running a week behind) -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Mike, if I remember well (and I should, I have the record in front of me) "Please Phil Spector"'s singer was a group: the Attack. A really funny song.
