They Sing In Italian!!, (I have Volume 1), which features 29 recordings by various American superstars of the early 60s, including Gene McDaniels, Paul Anka, Gene Pitney, Bobby Vinton, Lesley Gore, Neil Sedaka, Ben E King, The Everly Brothers, Terry Stafford and others.

Message: 2 Date: Sun, 26 Oct 2003 20:19:53 EST From: Paul Urbahns Subject: Phil Spector - To Know Him Is To Love Him In the new revised edition of "Out Of His Head" there is a picture of Phil coming out of the High Court in London in March 1997 when he regained the rights to "To Know Him Is To Love Him". Does anyone know the background on this, why would he have to go to a British court? Paul Urbahns -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

It's very surprising to me that Bill Jerome not only fails to mention his brother Steve on his website, but he also neglects to mention Reparata and the Delrons...the group that got the Jerome brothers started in the music business!! I also don't see any credit given to John Abbott who, in my opinion, was the genius behind the Jerome Brothers' initial success. One of my favorite records produced by the Jerome Brothers was an obscure release of the song "We Were Lovers" by Darin D'Anna. (World Artists 1045). It's a cover of the Exciters recording and it is GREAT!!! Has anyone else ever heard of this record????? -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

My > question is... who is the girl group that's backing Darrell on the > record? Jeff.......How ya'doin'? "Play That Gaucho Guitar" is a song I wrote with Ben Raleigh for Elvis' movie "Fun in Acapulco".....but it was never used. We gave our friend Al Gallico the publishing and he suggested that we make it an instrumental. He got Jerry Kennedy to record it for Smash, but I never knew about or heard the Jamie record. As far the "obvious" attempt to recreate "Dance to the Guitar Man"..... I never heard that either. I did, however, try to emulate Duane Eddy's style since he was one of my early guitar idols......and was kind enough to show me how to play in his "Twangy style" when I met him in 1959. As I'm writing this.....I remember Al Gallico was a close friend of Harold Lipsius, the owner of the Jamie label and probably pitched the song originally for Duane but was turned down. Harold probably liked the song enough to give it to another one of his artists. Another Spectropop mystery solved? Only the Shadow knows!! regards, Artie -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 5 Date: Mon, 27 Oct 2003 10:41:01 -0800 (PST) From: Mike Nathan Subject: Tommy Boyce and The Pleasers Who knows anything about the late Tommy Boyce's involvement in the late 70's with production of a band called "The Pleasers". I vaguely remember a great tune with the line "You made me cry last night, when you told me that you were leavin'....". An pointer to a CD would be the ultimate prize!

The Chants released one of my songs "Do the Choo-Choo" [Byron/Wayne] which was the b-side of "Dick Tracy" on M-G-M records. By any chance could you play it to Musica? Thanks and regards, Artie -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
