I kind of like these two myself although I thought The Definitive Rock Chorale version of "Grass" was a bit better--same producers and same arranger. Maybe better vocals.

I drove to their apartment, I think it was Bill's. I was going to follow them into the city. They told me they would pay my toll, so just to follow them. When we got to the toll booth at the tunnel Bill sticks his hand out and makes a waving gesture to suggest he paid for my toll. So I step on the gas and breeze by the toll guard without paying. Well of course they did NOT pay and I was chased down by the cops. The Jerome Brother`s laughter was heard reverberating in the tunnel for hours. The Brothers soon move to Long Island. My wife and I went to visit. I discovered that both brothers lived next door to each other. They told me when they bought the homes they told the developer "We`ll take TWO!!! Bill was extremly afraid to fly and one day he was lamenting to Garry and I how terrified he was about his up coming flight to London. We tried to calm him down and I always imagined how that plane looked in flight for you see bill weighed around 400+ lbs, maybe more. And I could just see that plane flying on a TILT, one wing facing the sky the other the earth. I love the Jerome Brothers. That alan -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

I'm sure we all know the Beach Boys' Omaha Beach-style assault on the German language in "Ganz Allein" (In My Room). Well, check out this lot, drawn from what has to be the strangest Beach Boys collectible CD after the Manson album: Strandjungs : Los komm und tanz (Dance Dance Dance) Mama Betty's Band : Reise nach New York (Fun Fun Fun) Strandjungs : Hey komm (Do It Again) Strandjungs : Der Sonne hinterher (All Summer Long) Strandjungs : Surfen auf'm Baggersee (Surfin' USA) Michael Holm : Kein Alibi (She Rides With Me) Strandjungs : Auf nach Hawaii (Hawaii) Strandjungs : Mir ist so heiss (You're So Good To Me) Petula Clark : J'ai pas le Temps (No Go Showboat) (I swear to God I didn't make that one up - W.) Peter & Alex : Wir wollen nach Haus (Sloop John B) Strandjungs : Kleines rotes Cabriolet (Fun Fun Fun) Benni & the Others : Tot tgi vo cun Skis (Surfin' USA) Strandjungs : Irgendwo (Kokomo) Strandjungs : Kleines Surfer Girl (Surfer Girl) Strandjungs : Zurück zu Dir (California Girls) "Strandjungs" is German for Beach Boys; Petula Clark is French for "Home Counties Dominatrix" - ("the man's Graaahhhhhss" - aaaargh). Pet Sounds, folks. I have no clue even what language "Tot tgi vo cun Skis" is; perhaps someone could enlighten me. I'm getting a headache ...

Message: 4 Date: Fri, 24 Oct 2003 21:56:51 -0500 From: Orion Subject: Re: Austin Roberts I have 3 LPs by Austin Roberts, he was one of those singers IMHO that was sunshine pop that at times bordered on bubblegum. I love his LPs, the only song I really remembered growing up was "Rocky" which Billboard would indicate was his biggest hit while Cash Box thinks it was "Something's Wrong With Me". I do wish he would join the group, I am sure he has plenty of music history he could share. Orion -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
