Must seem silly now that nobody wanted to release a gem of that stature. I started buying your stuff upon hearing that flexi disc that came with Eye magazine years ago. Also got a single of yours, something like "My Foot, My Piano and My . . . Short Shorts?" -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

I have a Fraternity single by the Casinos called "It's All Over" (written by Don Everly) b/w "Tailor Made," which credits Gene as producer. -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 3 Date: Wed, 14 Jan 2004 23:33:25 -0000 From: Glenn Subject: Austin Roberts' "One Word" by the Grass Roots I've uploaded the Grass Roots' version of "One Word" to Musica. Austin's own later version was up there recently. Austin, since you don't own this one, (and weren't even sure it existed!), I thought you, and other S'Poppers, might enjoy hearing this. The main difference between the versions is that the Grass Roots' version sounds like, well... The Grass Roots! Arrangements and styles notably different - bright California sunshine pop on one hand, nifty Southern-dipped pop-rock on the other. Credits for the Grass Roots version: Written by Austin Roberts and John Hill >From the ABC/Dunhill LP "Move Along" (1972) Produced by STEVE BARRI with Rob Grill and Warren Entner Horns Arranged and Conducted by Jimmie Haskell Engineer: Phil Kaye Lead Vocal: Rob Grill Enjoy!
