Most of the singles expire tomorrow while LPs by the Righteous Brothers, Kit Kats and others were just put up. Seller is Fanattics.

Message: 4 Date: Thu, 11 Dec 2003 17:12:39 -0000 From: Michael Subject: Pop Fans In The New York Area... Hi everyone. This Saturday night, those of you in the New York area are invited to stop by Rififi/Cinema Classics (332 East 11th Street, between 1st and 2nd Avenue) between 10:30 PM and 4:00 for my monthly undertaking, POP GEAR! Myself and Kittybeat and Dawn Eden (a name many of you know from almost 100 CDs that feature her liner notes, such as 'The Association, Just The Right Sound' or The Collector's Choice Peter And Gordon compilation), will spin a fab mix of the finest 1960s garage, psych, beat, Mod, surf and everything 'n between. And on this particular night, we're turning POP GEAR! into a MOD CHRISTMAS BALL by sprinkling in some psychedelic seasonal sounds and rare 1960s holiday recordings into the night's usual soundtrack. We deck the walls (not the halls) with vintage 1960s magazine articles, and we play rare 1960s video clips on the large videoscreen all night. Now that I've been posting in here and conversing pop music with many of you (both on and off list), it would be great to meet some of you in person. Come celebrate the holidays in 1960s style at the... POP GEAR!/MOD CHRISTMAS BALL! Saturday December 13th RIFIFI/CINEMA CLASSICS 332 East 11th Street (between 1st and 2nd Avenue) New York City Thanks! -Michael (PS: If you can't make it this Saturday, remember that POP GEAR! is always the second Saturday of the month.) -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 5 Date: Thu, 11 Dec 2003 21:17:03 -0000 From: Rob Stride Subject: Best lines From Songs A couple of my favourites: Eric Carmen - Nowhere To Hide "Sippin' on a scotch and soda, a shadow in the corner booth, so philosophic and drunk on grown-up truth" And Bowie - Life On Mars "Now the workers have struck for fame, `cause Lennon's on sale again" I wonder if this was the starting point for the song "Fame" written and recorded by Lennon & Bowie some 4 years later for "Young Americans" Album?

How high did it go in the UK? No 12, November 1957 - later taken up as a football chant (= soccer). pb -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

If I'm not mistaken, he was the boy soprano in the original recording of Benjamin Britten's opera "The Turn of the Screw." -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
