Message: 1 Date: Fri, 13 Feb 2004 01:49:47 -0000 From: Mick Patrick Subject: Shirley Spector I just found the following message on the S'pop Public Bulletin Board. I'm about to be incommunicado for a few days. Maybe our resident Spector experts would like to discuss the message while I'm away. If not, I'll want to know why not. :-) > Phil Spector's older sister Shirley once managed a band called > Kip Tyler and the Flips. They cut some great rockabilly sides > for Ebb ("She's My Witch", "Rumble Rock"), Challenge ("Jungle > Hop", Starla and others. Among the members where Sandy Nelson, > Steve Douglas, Bruce Johnston and others. Questions, what became > of Kip? What became of Shirley? Is that Shirley's voice on "Ooh > Yeah Baby", the flip of "Jungle Hop". Did Phil have any input > into their records (sure sounds like a wall of sound on "Rumble > Rock"). Any info about the group, or the earlier group the > Sleepwalkers that they grew out of? There's a good story in > there somewhere, Kim Fowley might have been their roadie also.
