Message: 1 Date: Wed, 29 Oct 2003 09:41:26 -0500 (EST) From: Andrew Jones Subject: Re: To know him is to love him.......in court Paul Urbahns, and anyone else interested: GOLDMINE, April 25 1997, page 10, column 1: "Phil Spector has won back the rights to his first hit. In late March ['97] the legendary producer won a fight in British courts over the rights in Britain to the music and lyrics of 'To Know Him Is To Love Him' ... "Spector successfully argued that the 28-year copyright assignment to Warman Music in 1958 (which then licnsed the song to British-based Bourne Music) expired in 1986. The victory could mean thousands of dollars in back royalties for Spector. ..." -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

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. Art and Mark, I agree with the frustration of leaving singles off Cds. Altho I cannot fault Rhino too much for leaving off a non-45 song (I haven't even heard it, so I guess I'd better find the Lp & listen!), I COMPLETELY agree with a group with such little recorded output as Rose Garden. Not putting on all of their 45 sides when they only had 2 (3?) to begin with is ridiculous!! My biggest peave of this type is Rhino leaving off Johnny Rivers' #60 45 "Right Relations" which I love! How can you put his crappy "Whiter Shade of Pale" Lp track and leave off a hit??!! Unforgiveable!! Thanks, Clark -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Anybody have any information on this ? Are these actually playable records ? What size is this ? Any information at all appreciated !

This episode comes on > Wed night 10/29/03 at 9:30pm, on most PBS stations. Thanks for the tip, I definitely will try to catch J. B. if my local PBS station runs it. I have more records by James than by any other artist...although he is one of my musical gods I must say I've viewed him in a bit of a different light since reading Fred Wesley's biography "Hit Me Fred!" recently.

Unforgiveable!! If I had to guess, then that's simply because the label made the mistake of getting the artist involved. That is one gigantic mistake. Never, ever get them involved. They will always have some song that was a hit or that people liked that they hated and that they don't want on the package. That's why you get Dion collections that never include Be Careful of Stones That you throw, the supposed complete Melissa Manchester missing several charted hits for no good reason, The Shades of Blue on Collectibles missing one A-side (How Do You Save A Dying Love) which they asked to be left off. I could go on but when you get these collections put together its next to impossible to get them done right when you have to deal with 1) Labels like CCM which are too cheap or lazy to include non-LP tracks even when there is room, such as the Rose Garden and the We Five comp. (also missing 1 a-side) or Collectibles doing Beverly Bremers but leaving off another 8-10 tracks all recorded on the same label (Scepter). 2) People putting the collections together who have no concept of the artist they are compiling and are not bright enough to pick up the Whitburn books to check chart records. 3) Artist involvement, the one sure thing that guarantees that there will be songs missing. -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
