If I had a penny for every time a company has left off key tracks of an artist's output, I would be a rich man...they lose a lot of sales that way. For instance, Rhino put out an Association compilation a while back and didn't include "Rose Petals, Incense and a Kitten", one of my FAVORITE tracks by them...without that track I couldn't spring for the CD.

Message: 3 Date: Thu, 23 Oct 2003 21:31:36 +0100 From: Martin Roberts Subject: Jerome Brothers Country Paul asked about The Jerome Brothers: > I'm trying to remember which artists they were involved with, > but I'm blanking out. Any hints, please? Hi Paul, Shortly after I'd been introduced to the wonderful Reparata & the Delrons and various other 45s bearing the legend, "World United Productions", "Real Good Productions" or a simpler "Produced by Bill And Steve Jerome" the equally wonderful Mick Patrick supplied, through "The Phil Spector Appreciation Society", a Xerox copy of "Bill & Steve Jerome - The Early Years, profiled by Edward R. Engel" for "Time Barrier Express". For lovers of the back-room boys of 60s pop, it's indispensable. The vocalists and groups that they signed to their own labels and/or wrote and/or produced for reads like a who's who of 'almost greats'. Starting with early 60s doo-wop with The Chants, Harps, Palisades, Cupids, Demolyrs, Camelots, fine rock 'n' roll with Barry Darvell, Darin D'Anna, various girl groups (many involving assorted Reparatas and Delrons), harmony/rock groups including Kenny Young's, San Francisco Earthquake, Left Banke, Ox Bow Incident, Front End, Blades Of Grass, Fifth Estate (who recorded Gordon-Bonner's "Do Drop Inn" - not the same song as Jean Mays) and many, many more. Plenty of other Bonner and Gordon compositions are to be found amongst the Jerome Brothers' productions, including The Furnacemen's, "Sleeping Out The Storm", which I think soft poppers would love. But as I introduced in my earlier letter, their explosive, uptempo doo-wop records are hard to beat. The Harps' "Marie" is on "The Laurie Story, Vol.2" and when there's some room I'll play another groovy item to musica. Martin -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

I think these were all there were, but I have to check with Mick. He knows more about my records than I do. Thanks for asking. My personal favorites are "I Hear The Grass Singing" (for which I have been praying that pot would be legalized--hey guys psssttt over here--I've got the jingle ready) and "Variations On A Theme Called Hanky Panky" --the execution may be a little less than what we tried for, but it wasn't easy).

Message: 6 Date: Thu, 23 Oct 2003 23:19:57 -0000 From: Martin Jensen Subject: New addition to musica Hi folks, Since joining the group some months ago, I have really enjoyed listening to all the cool tracks in 'Musica'. So, wanting to contribute a bit myself, I have uploaded a '66 single called 'Naked When You Come' by the Danish pop group the Lollipops. I really like the somewhat eerie feel of this song and the effective arrangement. I seem to recall having read somewhere, that the recording of this particular song was supervised by an American producer living in Sweden at the time. Throughout the 60s the Lollipops did record some other equally great songs, especially a great Motown-like one called 'Stop (Before You Break my Heart)'. As far as I know, they did not find success outside Scandinavia... Hope you like the song. :-) With regards Martin, Denmark -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

I have been in touch with him for several months and encouraged him to join the group many times. He worked a lot with Johnny Cymbal, with whom I also wrote a little bit. Very nice fellow. He's going through some difficult times. Anyone who is familiar with him and his work might like to contact him and tell him about the wonders of S'Pop.

Message: 13 Date: Fri, 24 Oct 2003 08:25:22 -0700 (PDT) From: David Coyle Subject: Re: Simon & Garfunkel As a result of no money and a changing of jobs (and the help of not winning a contest), the Simon & Garfunkel/Everly Brothers tour was both a dream come true and a wish unfulfilled for me. I had resigned myself to not being able to catch the show in Columbus the other night. I pondered the possible opening acts and had come to a conclusion that they would be their own supporting acts. A Paul Simon set, an Art Garfunkel set, and then the big reunion. Then I found out it was to be the EVERLY BROTHERS! Crud. What a perfect lineup! As it is, I thought to myself that I could rest assured that hearing both acts in their prime would be best, and that I would be better served by listening to their classic recordings, and the wonderful available performances from Lincoln Center 1967 and Central Park 1981. And surely hearing the Everly Brothers live in 1993 would be only a little improvement over hearing their classic Cadence/Warners period. But I too would love to hear reviews of this dream tour, so I can vicariously experience it through the stories of others who didn't miss it. Write on!

Hi Mark, I disagree, I love both The Hardy Boys records. "Carnival Time", "Good, Good Lovin'" and "I Hear The Grass Singin'" are all great songs from the 2nd LP. Sadly, it seems these albums will never get reissued on CD. There were demos posted here awhile ago which were just as good as the LPs.

Hi Keith, I would also say, in regard to the Dandy Warhols, if you like them, be sure and check out the Brian Jonestown Massacre. They just put out a new album ..."And This is Our Music" and it's really great stuff. Vintage equipment, 1960s mentality, with some modern song structure. They are touring now too. :Patrick -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

I have a single on Dot 45-16758 by the Coronados - "The Nomad" b/w "Center of Attraction". I think was a regional hit in the southwest. The sound is stomping 60s garage rock. I dont think it's the same group that did "Good Morning New Day" which has female lead vocals. We could have another case of 2 or more groups with the same name!

Very nice fellow. He's going through some difficult > times. The posts on Austin Roberts got me to thinking about one of his records I've had for a long time called "Mary and Me" which seems to fall into the category of both "soft pop" and "sneaky attempts to get songs about marijuana into the top-40". I also remember his hit from the early 70s called "There's Something Wrong With Me". Art -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
