The mind boggles. My Dear Mr Watson, I'm danged surprised by your question. The answer is so obviously the single "Breakaway" released in late 1969. Never mind that it was co-written by Reggie Dunbar (AKA Murry Wilson) and not VDP. The flipside, by the way, "Celebrate The News" was also brother Dennis' ultimate work of the 60's. Not a bad way to end the decade. Javed -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Ed, Anytime your in touch with Scott agin, would you mind asking him if there is anywhere published on the web or elsewhere a proper discography of both his writing and recording career. (Or maybe someone else knows the answer to this anyway without having to bother Scott.) I'd love to check out a comprehensive overview of all that he's done. He's been so prolific and had such major success with some of his stuff, but there is so little information out there on his career. Another great performer who really deserves a proper CD compilation spanning his career. I do have a Scott English collection on CD as I mentioned in an earlier post, but I think it is a very partial overview. It doesn't have Waterfall Woman on it for a start, which was his follow up single in Australia to Brandy in '72. Would love to hear that again in decent quality!

He called one day to book the BP as backup band on a session he was doing. It was a Sunday that was shared by a landmark birthday (50, 60???) party for my Dad. I told Tom I could not play the session. Evidently, he went down his keyboard players list and got SUN RA(!) to fill in for me. Ergo: a) although credited, I did not appear or perform on the BATMAN LP or CD. b) Sun Ra sat in with The Blues Project. c) I dont know anything about those sessions other than that. However, another time Tom booked us on a session for another artist. This gentleman wore a mask and the song he recorded was a biographical ditty called "The Covered Man" It actually was released on MGM Records. The artist was The Covered Man as well. In later years, he turned up with a "legit" music career as David Soul!!!! Andy Kulberg, the bassist & flautist in The Blue Project, became David's music director and travelled all over the world with him in the 70's. Hope this helps someone. And if it does it could only happen here. Al Kooper not to be confused with Alfred, the butler. -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

As long as you're reminiscing Al would you care to try to recollect the story behind your writing of the soundtrack for "The Landlord"? I was plowing through my soundtrack collection the other night for the first time in a few years and found this OST on United Artists circa 1970. Conducted by you and Charles Calello, sung parts by Lorraine Ellison and the Staple Singers with Chuck Rainey on bass, Eric Gale and you on guitars and included Joe Farrell and Phil Bodner on reeds. Starring Beau Bridges, Lee Grant, Diana Sands, and Pearl Bailey as 'Marge'.... Curiously, -- James Botticelli -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Message: 8 Date: Sat, 28 Feb 2004 14:02:09 -0000 From: Fred Clemens Subject: Re: "I Wonder What She's Doin..." / Barry DeVorzon The Barry and the Tamerlanes song has ben a favorite of mine for years (I never cared much for the Boyce and Hart song of the same name). I have all their Valiant records and their album. Barry DeVorzon was a talented writer before that Tamerlanes came along, but few realize he also gave singing a shot before too. He recorded a number of sides for RCA Victor beginning in 1957, and then Columbia, before setting up his Valiant label especially for his latest discovery, Shelby Flint ("Angel On My Shoulder"). Those earlier sides are among my favorites. For RCA, the favorite goes to "Raindrops On My Window". Since I only have one of his Columbia releases, I feel both sides were equally good. "Betty, Betty (Go Steady With Me)", and "Across The Street From Your House", a song covered soon after by Buddy Clinton on the Time label. (A side note on the Clinton track ...Most people insist that the Belmonts were his backing group for that record, but I feel it's more the Bell Notes. The Belmonts voices simply aren't there) Speaking of Barry DeVorzon compositions, I'm trying to find out something on Jack Owens, who recorded a DeVorzon song "You Flip Me" in the fall of 1958. Of particular interest is the "flip" side (not a DeVorzon tune), "Martian Love Call (A Hand Jive)", which is credited to 'Kohen-Green'. On both sides, he's backed by Al Allen's Orch., and it was issued on the Orbit label, whose slogan was "A Sound Out Of This World". The "Martian" side uses a pre-Chipmunks speed of vocals for the Martians. Anyone? Speaking of "Martians", Tammy Records was also recently discussed here. Tony March (Tony F. Marchionda), who co-owned the label(?), did a Martian/Chipmunk type of record for his label back in November, 1959 called "Italian Martians". It can be heard here: http://www.bobshannon.com/fred/2003.htm (Go to near the bottom of the page) Fred Clemens -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

"Home Of The Brave" by Bonnie & the Treasures has never been available on a legal CD. However, it shouldn't be too hard to locate the track on a bootleg. It's on "Poodle Skirts And Poni-Tails - Volume 1" (Babe 2005), for example.

I'm sure I met them and possibly worked with them during that time, as it was a smaller world then. re: Larry Knechtel/Bridge Over Troubled Water session: Yes, Larry is on Bridge. He was also a good guitar player. I think they recorded the keyboard to Bridge, as well as Hal Blaine's monster crashing drums on the Boxer and others, in the hallway of Columbia LA.

I would like to reiterate that I Wonder What She's Doing Tonight was not a ripoff by any means. Knowing both Bobby and Tommy as well as I did (still work with Bobby occasionally), they didn't need to rip anyone off to make tasty pop records. I like the other record a lot, but see no similarities in the two. It's like the two married people who can't stand each other; all they have in common is their name.

As I remember it, he was a fight fanatic. Having boxed Golden Gloves for awhile as a younger guy, I shared his interest, though not to that extreme. He, Robert John and I were all signed to Famous Music as staff writers, and it's a wonder we got much done, always playing jokes on each other and, as I remember, playing cards.That was around 1970, '71. It was a shock when he died, and I know you and Bobby felt it most. A great man! Best, Austin Roberts -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

What a coincidence of timing. I read Al's first paragraph, about the legendary Sun Ra/Blues Project/Tim Wilson Batman recording, with great interest, as that's long (i.e., since childhood) been a special favorite of mine. Before going on to read the rest of his post, I took a quick break to start uploading a new file to musica. Prompted by the new Starsky & Hutch movie opening this week, a few days ago I fished out my cassette copy of David Soul's The Covered Man 45 and digitized it. Imagine my surprise, then, when after beginning to upload that file I returned to Al's post to discover the rest of it was about that very same record! And imagine my further surprise when I read on and learned that Soul's powerful backing was at the hands of Al and crew, overseen once again by the great Tom Wilson. You can now hear it for yourselves, at the aforementioned musica. (Interesting that both records Al discussed in some way featured men in masks.) I also posted, to the Photos section, a trade mag ad for The Covered Man, which includes a chiaroscuro photo of the masked wonder. Also this week, in searching my storage room for something else (a Soupy Sales coloring book, of all things, which I unfortunately did not find), I turned up a photocopy of a long article, from a 1968 issue of The New York Times Sunday Magazine, about Tom Wilson. In the coming days I intend to digitize that, too, and post it to the Files/Articles section. I'll be sure to give a heads-up here when I do. Happy timing, --Phil M. -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 20 Date: Sat, 28 Feb 2004 17:40:54 EST From: Bob Rashkow Subject: Re: Brandy by English / The Groop Thank you Joe Nelson!!! I loved Mandy in Jan. '75 when it was out, but that was before I knew anything about the origins of the tune. I was kind of hoping that the "uptempo" would be a little bit faster, perhaps not as upbeat as Kind Of A Drag or Bend Me, Shape Me, but Scott's original, with the backing chorus and that spine-tingling middle music part, really DOES have poor Barry over a barrel. I feel proud to have that with my mp3s. In reply to the person asking about The Groop: Their contribution to "Midnight Cowboy" was Jeffrey Comanor's "A Famous Myth", which Comanor himself included on his little-heard 1970 LP, "Sure Hope You Like It." None of the artists featured on the film's soundtrack actually appeared in it, IMHO just as well; it would probably have interfered with the movie's decidedly disturbing (back then, at least) and thought-provoking imagery. (Check the S'pop archives for previous further discussion about The Groop and a few of their other recordings, I believe!) Bobster -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

That was one of the very first records I bought at Relic. I never heard it before, but I ended up buying two copies on the Spokane label. Another favorite by him was on the Dot label, "500 Miles From Home" I think was the title. (I haven't listened to it in awhile. I think it's time...)

Good to see Adam Wade here on S'pop, Clark he was last mentioned by Al Kooper for his great version of Bacharach-David's "Rain From The Skies". If it helps, I have played the Coed 45 version of "Point Of No Return" to musica. The time on the 45 is listed as 2:30. A great song, from writer Robert Mosely. He too was referenced here recently as being the author of the Searchers' "Goodbye My Love". (He also co-wrote Pat Boone's "Big Cold Wind" and the Shirelles' "Sha-La-La"). I always thought that when Adam Wade moved from Coed to Epic he took his Coed tracks with him in the same way that the 4 Seasons did when they moved from VJ to Philips. When the UK Ace CD "The Coed Records Story" came out, it didn't have any Adam Wade tracks on it. Adam's 1962 "Greatest Hits" LP on Epic looks as if it is all Coed material, but it doesn't include "Point Of No Return". Collectables is the reissue label of last resort, although they do fill gaps. I don't have too much faith in their ability to check their product before it is released. It doesn't appear as if any of Adam's Epic tracks are on this CD, and of his Coed material I don't see "Gloria's Theme" from the Liz Taylor film, "Butterfield 8", nor "Them There Eyes", a UK hit for Emile Ford & The Checkmates. But, whatever the reason, we get to hear Adam Wade on musica. Enjoy, Mike -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

The mind boggles. I couldn't agree with you more! I was simply trying to sidestep the Sgt. Pepper vs. everything-else-done-in-the-mid-sixties argument. It has always been my (faith-based, I admit) view that SMiLE was the "work of art" and Pepper was a Psychedelic Pop Album, in a conventional form. 'Sides, penultimate is a cool sounding word. I coach long and triple jumpers, and we work a lot on our 'penultimate step" to transfer the momentum of the run most efficiently into the jump. It's just that time of year again. Watson, if your ears have been burning lately, your invisibility on the SMiLE Shop message board has brought inquiries as to your whereabouts. Someone did point out that you post here at Spectropop, but with all the SMiLE hubbub I think your perspective is missed over there!
