Jeff Lemlich: > Sounds like the version by Copper 'N Brass, on the Amazon label. > It actually got some Northern soul spins in the 70s. Jeff thanks so much. I went to recordmaster and it shows it was the only record they released and it was in 1970. I thought for sure it was one of them I spun but in April 1970, I was in boot camp for the U S Army.

Not quite complete, but it'll do for now. http://perso.wanadoo.fr/denis.schwartz/ Eddy -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Yea, I have one Eldo 45 of the Ding Dongs. I think they came out with two. As a matter of fact the Ding Dongs were the Robins.

Message: 4 Date: Sat, 01 Nov 2003 10:40:56 +0000 From: Simon White Subject: Vince Hill in Bert Russell shock. Talking of UK cover versions... British uber-crooner Vince Hill did a song called "Push Push" written by Bert Russell (Berns) and Phil Medley. Whose is the original version - assuming this isn't it? -- Simon Have you been, Walter? -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 5 Date: Sat, 01 Nov 2003 14:04:44 -0000 From: Scott Charbonneau Subject: Re: Tommy Boyce and The Pleasers "A Girl I Know (Precis Of A Friend)" can be found on the Rhino CD "Teenage Kicks: UK Pop 1 (1976 - 79)", released in 1993. This was one of many volumes in their "DIY" series covering punk/new wave/ power pop from the US and UK. Most, if not all, of the volumes in this series were cut out by 1995. With a little effort, and luck, a copy of this should be easily had. Great track, too. Scott -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

The Chicago Transit Authority was first with it released at least by airplay. Because summer '69 for me and my palz was the summer of "I'm A Man" with the Ginger Baker-Like long drum solo that the LP version of CTA's I'm A Man featured. JB/got out of Navy Boot in March '70 (out of Navy itself in March '71, another story~) -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

DJs And while were on the subject, let's not forget Jim Pewter and Brian Byrne aka "Mr. Rock n' Roll" from KRTH (K-Earth 101) in LA from the '70s.

Message: 9 Date: Sat, 01 Nov 2003 15:47:49 -0000 From: Mick Patrick Subject: Roberta Day Oh dear, my record collection has let me down, just when I needed it. So I need some help please. I require songwriter, arranger, producer and publisher information for the following record: Roberta Day "Someday" (United Artists 792, 1964). Hopefully, someone out there has a copy. I don't. Feh! Hey la, Mick Patrick -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
