Message: 1 Date: Tue, 16 Sep 2003 09:01:26 -0700 From: Kim Cooper Subject: Linda Perhacs Country Paul, Linda Perhacs didn't drop out of sight so much as make that one record, then move on to other pursuits. But yes, I have been talking with her, and we plan to sit down soon for a taped interview. Kim -- Scram PO Box 461626 Hollywood, CA 90046-1626 http://www.scrammagazine.com Scram #18 out now with Emitt Rhodes, the Ramones, Marty Thau, Smoosh and more. -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 2 Date: Tue, 16 Sep 2003 16:59:50 -0000 From: Patrick Rands Subject: Re: Ginny Tiu & The Few Hi Ian, Thanks for the response, I knew my info was a little bit sketchy. So I'm excited to learn that there is a second Ginny Tiu girl group 45 out there (Amaret 104, which I guess I've never heard). I guess our only hope that Lesley recorded a version of the Michael Gore/Carole Bayer song is if she herself kept the demo version to herself - something to ask her if I ever meet her in person :). My understanding is Lesley does have a bunch of her early demos still in her possession (something I gathered from an interview she gave last year on the PMP website). The Ginny Tiu song also left me wondering if there were any other Michael Gore songs that Lesley didn't record (as well as the question how did Ginny get a hold of it to begin with?). :Patrick -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 3 Date: Tue, 16 Sep 2003 14:55:16 EDT From: Bob Rashkow Subject: Re: Sugar Shoppe The dialogue at the conclusion of "Skipalong Sam" is classic 6Ts stuff. Laurie Hood is not only beautiful but she has just the right style for her and Garber's "hip rap" before the other two come in and start giggling away. "You been trippin'?" (She thinks about it a second.) "Skippin'!" "Cool," replies Victor, which sends both of them into giggles of flowery ecstasy. Only in '67.

Message: 4 Date: Tue, 16 Sep 2003 18:45:01 -0000 From: G. Monteleone Subject: Peggy Lipton's album Hi, all! I'm new to the group and just had a question for you: Does anyone have Peggy Lipton's album, titled Peggy Lipton, in their possession? I've looked on the web endlessly for the credits--All Music Guide and Artist Direct both have incomplete lists. Here's what I'm looking for: what did Carole King & Charles Larkey do on the album? Did they play instruments on any of the tracks, produce, arrange, what? I'm hoping someone can look at the liner notes and get this information. I know that Carole had a hand in writing five of the tracks on it-- "(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman", "It Might as Well Rain Until September", "Wasn't it You", "Lady of the Lake", and "Who Needs It"--maybe they played or sang on them. Any help, or any websites that you could refer me to, would be GREATLY appreciated! -GM -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Brad Harvey used to live in Moline, but is now down around Nashville. He did the review for Mojo and got paid, but they never ran it. No relation to me. It would make a neat flick or tv show. -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

With a big thankyou going to Mick Patrick. It's a really good interview. Love & thanx Darren (Beverley's son) -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 7 Date: Wed, 17 Sep 2003 04:07:41 -0000 From: Charles A Sheen Subject: Phil Spector on A and E I thought they could have gone more into detail on a lot of stuff, other than that I liked it. Does anyone in the group know any way that I can contact Phil (lol, I know , a real difficult task) but I would like to get in touch with him (like a lot of people). Anyways, one detail I wish they'd mentioned is the fact that Fanita James and my father were also in the studio when He's A Rebel was recorded, it wasn't just all Darlene (I know I'm picky, but hey, that's my dad, lol). Hope all is well with everyone. rock on, Charles Sheen -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 8 Date: Wed, 17 Sep 2003 15:32:32 -0000 From: Mark Wirtz Subject: A&E Spector Bio Apart from the chilling interview with Ronnie, a dehydrated, lo-cal, low-carb glossary, mostly distinguied by an annoyingly repeated close-up byte of a tone arm lowering itself onto the opening groove of a non-Spector LP. I can only hope that perhaps E's "True Hollywood Stories" might get motivated to do a more revealing job. mw ;) -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 9 Date: Tue, 16 Sep 2003 20:24:24 -0000 From: Art Longmire Subject: Gale Garnett and the Gentle Reign Another Canadian artist I have a bit of interest in-I have a Columbia 45 of Gale Garnett and the Gentle Reign called "Breaking Through" that is pretty good and quite different from her big Grammy-winning hit "We'll Sing in the Sunshine". It's a soft, somber number with sort of Gregorian chant backup singing and an Indian influence, including a sitar. I wondered if anyone on Spectropop had heard any of her three LPs with the Gentle Reign? I've never seen any of the LPs and as far as I know nothing has been released on CD by this group.

Indeed. Obviously it was quite painful for Ronnie to retell the story of how she left Phil; you really do feel for her. Otherwise Spector was portrayed as perhaps expected: brilliant artist, but a seriously dysfunctional human being. Seemed to me that one hour was just not enough time to cover everything.

Boy, I wish they had used that entire clip!!! Charles, it seems your dad was on a lot of Spector sessions, even tho' uncredited....a great talent!! -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

She now lives in Toronto, where she is a full-ime writer and a part-time actress. She had a bit part in "My Big Fat Greek Wedding" as one of the bride's aunts.

Members of it were subsequently drafted by Sean Bonniwell to become The Music Machine. --Phil M. -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 16 Date: Wed, 17 Sep 2003 17:56:08 EDT From: John Berg Subject: Re: The (1967) Knack I am a new member to this group, which I discovered recently while googling around in search of information on The Knack (the Mike Chain/Dink Caplin group, not the later one nor the UK one.) Thanks to your older postings I discovered that the band released 3 further singles -- I've had the first one since it was released back in the late '60s, as I grew up in LA and tried to follow the local scene pretty closely. Alas that I never knew of their later 45s -- guess Capital didn't put as much marketing effort into those releases? In any case, thanks to Spectropop I now know the titles of all 4 Knack singles, and over the past couple weeks was able to obtain all but their last 45 via a search on the Gemm website. No sign yet of "Freedom Now"/"Lady In The Window". NOW FOR MY QUESTION: How do I find "Musica" to listen to stuff your group members post? And how do I get in touch with Jeffrey Glenn and the others who posted information about The Knack? My buddy Neal Skok here in Seattle tells me that he thinks The Knack cut a whole LP, which was never released. Presumably it would have included at least some of the 8 cuts on the 4 singles? I plan to contact Alec Palao to see what he might know -- he has lots of "insider" contacts and usually can find out if something exists and is available to the reissue crowd. I will also contact Joe Foster at Rev-Ola, who recently has been in touch with me for some help on the forthcoming CD reissue of the second "Them" album on the Tower label from 1968.

Hello Art, Not quite - she was born on a ship in Auckland Harbour... ;) Since her parents are/were not Kiwis - she is ours only by the accident of birth.
