You know, I'd say your description of "Room" fits even better with Jackie's "Needles and Pins". I can't think of too many early sixties records that used such densely layered acoustic guitars in what was otherwise a rock 'n' roll arrangement. That sharp, metallic sound not only foreshadows folk-rock, but it also fits the title of the song. Those guitar riffs actually put the image of needles and pins in my head. I must admit, though, I'm not quite willing to commit myself to a position on what was the first folk-rock record! S.J. Dibai -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

So it was no big surprise later when I learned that the other "brother" Bobby worked with was the same singer from the Knickerbockers. -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

But I have one seems I read somewhere that Martha Sharp and Sandy Posey were the same person. Is this untrue? Forgive my ignorance. - Bill -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
