Fair enough, but I did find a similar claim while perusing Spectropop's reprint of Tony Russell's Guardian obit of Don Gibson: > What established him was writing 'Sweet Dreams', a hit in > 1956 for Faron Young but now inseparably linked with the > name of Patsy Cline, who recorded it seven years later. > 'Oh, Lonesome Me' and 'I Can't Stop Loving You' followed > in 1957, both written, Gibson claimed, on the same day, > June 7.

The desire for rarity comes more I think from overexposure to the everyday than a desire for rarity for its own sake, although a bit of that pathology creeps into my searches on occasion. Rarity implies to me unheard and unknown and when it comes to picking up oldies, since I've heard so much during my 55 years, I need something 'new' and at this stage of the game that means rare practically by definition. > Another breed of collectors is the Completists.

I spent about 15 years wanting to own every sweet soul group ballad 45 out there. I have about 2500 of 'em but that's not complete. I've reached the stage where I am saturated and don't want any more. In fact I want less to make more room for more different records. > If your > version of Completism also requires that you collect > every known bootleg of your particular musical > obsession then you're truly doomed.

The theory, according to a woman I know, is that women by definition embrace things holistically and differently than men who want to quantify and qualify life, generally a non-quantifiable experience. This translates to racing pages, sports stats and, yes, records. Record collectors in fact are more jock than many sports fans. There's more to keep track of and know the stats of. -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Message: 5 Date: Thu, 15 Jan 2004 18:17:35 +0000 From: Phil Milstein Subject: Re: new-old discovery John Sellards wrote: > What is the one vintage song you've recently discovered that > completely knocked you out? The best new-old thing I've heard lately is a raggedy-ass rehearsal take of "I've Had It" by The Slades (originally The Spades), included on Ace's 1998 collection The Domino Records Story. In fact, the entire CD is a revelation to me, highlighted by such blazing numbers as The Slades' "You Cheated", their follow-up "You Gambled," Joyce Harris's (backed by The Slades) answer "I Cheated," The Slades' reworking of the classic "Summertime", and Joyce Harris's wrecklessly libidinous "No Way Out" (the promo photo of her, included in the booklet, is a stone eyepopper). The label's sound was primarily in the rocknroll/rockabilly vein (Ray Campi, for instance, contributes a killer "My Screamin' Screamin' Mimi"), yet diverse, with The Daylighters contributing some excellent R&B sides, some great whiteboy doo-wop ("You Cheated") by The Slades, and some real good pop ballads (mostly by Joyce Webb). Rob Finnis handled this compilation, and his liner notes tell the story of a most unique record company. The Austin-based Domino was essentially a consortium formed by a dozen or so songwriting students, led by their instructor. They started with some decent resources and a lot of energy and enthusiasm, yet little hands-on experience. Domino peaked with the success of "You Cheated" in 1958 but went into decline shortly after, due to some strategical missteps, some bad luck (such as The Slades, their cornerstone act, all in college and unwilling to do proper touring), and an inability -- or unwillingness -- to play the Payola game. Members of the ownership group departed in semi-regular spurts, and when the end came, in 1961, the consortium was left with just three members (all women, by the way) in it. I believeThe Domino Records Story is still in print. Check Ace's website, at http://www.acerecords.co.uk --Phil M. -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 6 Date: Thu, 15 Jan 2004 16:00:49 -0700 From: Rex Srother Subject: Record Collecting as Darwinian Residue My wife and I discussed record collecting apres-viewing "High Fidelity" (an upbeat homage to record collecting I'd say, as opposed to say "Ghost World" which was kind of sad). She postulated that "list-making" and "record- collecting" might be left over from the male's Darwinian instinct of categorizing and ranking - choosing the alpha and sub-males in a tribe or herd. While we still do this socially (who's wearing the Italian suit at the reunion), she suspects men are hardwired to continue this down "need" to rank down to "Which 5 songs best represent cross-dressing" or "My compleat discography of Johnny Cymbal red vinyl Kapp Japanese releases". -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Who d'ya think is buying all those > dolls, Hummel figurines, Beanie Babies, teapots and > depression glass? Hello Kim, I think you're right on the money as far the gals being quieter about it. I'm fascinated by the differences between men and women's collecting habits, and how people first got into this hobby in the first place. It's true there are whole genres of music in which I have never heard of a female collector-"doo-wop", for instance. Also rarely hear of women collecting blues recordings. It does seem that as far as memory goes, in junior high and high school there were an equal number of male and female music fans-I'm not sure why that would translate into many more men becoming record collectors as adults. By the way, I checked out your Scram website and read the Emmitt Rhodes interview excerpt, it was excellent. His reminiscences of his time in the Palace Guard is a fascinating and troubling story. I have been an Emmitt Rhodes fan ever since late 1970 when his song "Fresh As a Daisy" was a pretty big hit on my local radio station KFXM. Although I'm a bit ashamed to say I never bought the 45-my allowance at the time didn't stretch quite far enough to enable me to purchase it! I have the Orange Empire 45 "Like Falling Sugar" but I'll never look at it in quite the same way again after reading your interview.

I guess this is a good time to ask Rashkovsky if any soul artists recorded "Mary In The Morning". I think the lyrics to this song would lend themselves well to a deep soul rendition -- "The ache is there, so deep inside me". Ron Dante -- were you the singer on a 1967 song called "Flower Girl", produced by Al Kasha? Thanks, guys, and keep up the informative posts!

Message: 11 Date: Thu, 15 Jan 2004 23:48:08 -0000 From: Guy Lawrence Subject: Chuck Berry's best/Austin Roberts While I fear a thread on great Chuck Berry lyrics could go on ad infinitum I simply can't resist giving my own favourite a shout. From "Brown Eyed Handsome Man": "Milo Venus was a beautiful lass She had the world in the palm of her hand But she lost both her arms in a wrestling match To get a brown eyed handsome man" The same song also contains an amazing piece of surreal poetry: "Flying across the desert in a TWA, I saw a woman walking 'cross the sand She been a walkin' thirty miles en route to Bombay To get a brown eyed handsome man" - then there's the stunning baseball verse. As I said talking about Chuck's good points could go on forever! Austin, I have all the 1910 Fruitgum Co. albums right here next to me and I can't find your name on any of them. Might you be thinking of another bubblegum act or should I have got my 45s out? Massive respect to you, by the way, for that cool Scooby Doo vocal!

Easily in my all-time top 10, "Daddy Rollin' (In Your Arms)" - especially the last verse where Dion catches that magical something about the blues that Howlin' Holf does in "Smokestack Lightnin'" or even Elvis does in "Blue Moon" or "Tomorrow Is A Long Time" - is the ultimate shiver moment for me.

The CDs that have re-recorded versions are usually marked, you get a "warning"-although sometimes it's in very small print. What I really hate are these CDs they're pushing where the fine print says "These are re-recordings featuring at least one member of the original group"-just terrible. The only time I was ever fooled was when I bought what I thought was a greatest hits album by Sam and Dave on Gusto Records. It turned out to be all re-recordings, and all inferior to the originals. But since I got it for just a dollar at a thrift store, it was no great loss! Sometimes these rip-offs have a silver lining, however. Another thrift store purchase I found was a late 60's compilation album on Design Records that prominently featured several tracks by "Simon and Garfunkel" -these proved to be rare Paul Simon solo tracks from the late 50's-early 60's. And there were other great songs by Roy Orbison, Chuck Jackson, Johnny Rivers (a song from the 50's where he sounds about 12 years old) and other great artists. All vintage stuff, but the label was pushing it as new recordings! Art Longmire -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

It doubles as spine tingler when Spanky sings "or put your girl to sleep sometime with rats instead of nursery rhymes." For me it's one of the most powerful songs to come out of the era.....and still holds up today. Near the end when the vocals drift off into the piano break is another S/T moment.

You said a mouthful...I just love Spanky and Our Gang, a group that "serious" music historians will probably always overlook. "Like To Get To Know You" is probably my favorite record by them, along with "It Ain't Necessarily Byrd Avenue"-I love that lyric "Up to my brain in rain"! The "coda" section of "Like To Get To Know You", commented on in an earlier post, is one of my favorite "spine-chilling" moments, especially the mono version on 45. I just wish some enterprising record company would issue the group's original albums on CD...Collector's Choice, maybe, since they finally saw fit to issue the Association's catalogue recently. Does anyone else have the New Wine Singers LP, this was Elaine "Spanky" McFarlane's first group. It's more of a straight folk LP.

Is California in Asia? :-) Seriously, I can't help you with a copy of the Bermudas' 'Blue Dreamer' (Era 3133, 1964), George, but I can tell you a little about the group. Allow me to quote a paragraph from the "Where The Girls Are, Vol 5" CD booklet. I wrote it, so it must all be true! HA! Seriously, the information came from Rebecca Page, a member of the Bermudas: The Bermudas, the Majorettes, the Georgettes, Joanne & the Triangles and Beverly & the Motorscooters: these are just some of the recording appellations used by singer-songwriter-producer- businesswoman Rickie Page and the female members of her musical family. She and her omnipresent husband George Motola also ran Troy Records, the original 1964 outlet for 'MY BOYFRIEND' by BECKY & THE LOLLIPOPS, yet another name used by the Page clan. This particular outfit comprised Rebecca 'Becky' Page, her older sister Joanna, their mother Rickie and Susie Kuykendoll, Rickie's sister. Rebecca shared lead vocals with Rickie, whose oldest daughter Sheilah sometimes took her place in photos of the group. In 1957 Rickie Page had begun a stream of recordings using her own name for every label under the California sun, not to mention some in Nashville. She also waxed as a member of the Jordanaires, the Spectors Three and Bobby 'Boris' Pickett's Crypt-Kickers; factors which make her one of the unsung heroines of the early- 1960s Los Angeles scene. Rickie is still active in the music business, composing songs from her base in Fresno, California.

Although there are some notable exceptions (Lillian Roxon, Caroline Coon, Gerri Hirshey and others), the vast bulk of the writing upon our musical past has been done by men, as well. Those who, like me, are into music trivia, labels, catalogue numbers and chart positions (yada yada yada...), are, in my experience at least, generally male as well. Joel Whitburn, Tim Rice, Paul Gambaccini, Norm N. Nite, and all of the people of my acquaintance who compile databases of record label master numbers etc. -- male. Must be something in the DNA... ;) A belated Antipodean welcome to Austin Roberts (loved your stuff since I was a lot smaller than I am now ;), and Ron Dante (same spiel...). Never thought I'd see the day when I could talk to you. Cheers, Mike Stachurski, Librarian-in-training DUNEDIN, NZ "Learn everything, a narrow education displeases."
