Milstein writes: > I'm working up a list, for an eventual compilation, > of "surprising" original versions I nominate the Shorty Long original of "Devil With The Blue Dress On", surprising because it's almost a ballad, sounding nothing like the Mitch Ryder version we all came to know first; and also it's nothing like Shorty's other "hits" (Here Comes The Judge and Function At The Junction) which were funky and humorous.

I've had a few complaints along these lines. The scans read fine at my end, but they're apparently not imaging large enough in all browsers. Not wanting any members of our aging Spectropopulation to strain their eyes any more than necessary, I will rescan at least the text versions soon. And, if there's a call for it, do up some of the other articles (Donnie Brooks, Jerry Butler, Mike Clifford, Patsy Cline, Dick & Dee, Bobby Edwards, Gene Krupa, Marcels, Ann-Margret) at the same time. Do you think scanning at an additional 33% will do the trick? 50%? Al Kooper wrote: > .......The Glimmer Twins Medley - a whole continuous side of > Stones tunes at 120 BPM! ...

There's the notorious You-Know-Who Group ["Roses Are Red (My Love)], documented here previously....and the different-but-also-notorious Masked Marauders! Phil X.

This song is one of the great treats almost lost to time; thank you for the resurrection (complete with the surrounding "psychedelic BS")! Hints of the Beach Boys, plus a precursor of a very strange UK record called "Person To Person" by The Hypothetical Prophets (Columbia in the US, c. 1983). A very sinister couple reads UK sex adverts over a strange and beautiful track that borrows (I wonder if consciously) part of one chord progression from the above (the strange one after the verse). Anyone have any info on the HP's? It's one of the strangest records I have in my collection. > ...Basil Swift & The Segrams...lovely cover version of Brian > Wilson's exquisite "Farmer's Daughter." I love the song itself, but the record is "Swift" indeed; sounds like it was recorded on speed - and helium! What *were* they thinking? Fun, though. Thank you very much for posting both. Phil again: > I'm working up a list ... of "surprising" original versions, i.e. > songs where a later version is generally thought to be the original. Please include my new fave, the Top Notes' "Twist & Shout." Also, may I suggest the Valentinos' "It's All Over Now." For Tom from Boulder, CO (whose e-mail I don't have, or I'd ask off-list, since the songs are from the mid-70's although they sound like late 60's): Do you have any information on two Denver/Boulder area bands who contributed killer cuts to KBPI's "homegrown" album on 1976? The exceptional "The Other Man" by Spooner could be a Buffalo Springfield song, and "Van Nuys" by The Drivers is a very nice nice tight light pop song that sticks with you. (I worked in the KBPI, Denver radio mill in '74 - popular station, loads of talent, and a revolving-door hellhole to work in. I was #48 to quit or be fired in a two-year period; when a fellow jock who "sponsored" me out there got canned four weeks later, he was #51! Ah, radio....) Laura Pinto: > Most of you Ron Dante fans out there probably know that Ron's is the > voice you're hearing in the TV commercials for Yoplait yogurt here in > the States. Yes, that's Ron singing "Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie Yellow > Polka Dot Bikini." Not to take anything away from Ron's very credible cover, but did the producers know that Paul Evans, the original artist, is alive, well and still working (and a member of S'pop as well)?

However, I have never seen a copy, nor have I ever even seen it listed in any other UK discography (see for example Record Collector magazeine issue #100).

I guess Casablanca was flying so high then they even would've put out country songs in Disco style. I got a Casablanca LP of New York radio personality Frankie Crocker singing "Tuxedo Junction", "Prisoner of Love" and "September in the Rain" in straight 4 on the floor versions. It has Plas Johnson, Sonny Burke, Ray Parker and Wilton Felder playing on it. Anyway do you remember your bands name? I think I'll give it a try.

Great book as it is, I feel I have to point out that it was written by the respected soul writer Bill Dahl, whilst Weldon was responsible for the hundred or so rare photos in the book. Bill Dahl's very full text over the 348 pages makes the book a fine purchase, and on the basis of a picture being worth 1000 words, they are probably roughly even!

But it was the main tune in the 1971 movie Melody and was > in that context released as a single in Japan. It had a still > from the movie on the picture sleeve. Good research. I don't recall the film "Melody" but it makes sense. "Melody Fair" would have been a hit for Bee Gees. From the same LP, I was driving around last night and put on "First of May" - very similar in sound/production as "Holiday". Russell Prowse: > This might help: Wow, that link has everything. It was apparently released in England as a single in '71. Thanks for your help. Art: The title track "Odessa" is beautiful, very English. The LP/CD takes a few listenings to appreciate. Some songs seem to be fillers but over all a nice concept LP. The "First of May" was one of my favorites, too. It actually shows up as "b" side with "Melody Fair" in a UK release three years after the LP was released in early '69. There is also an instrumental version of "First' on Odessa. It was truly the Bee Gees' quantum leap into progressive rock. Jim Shannon -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 13 Date: Thu, 04 Mar 2004 14:36:18 EST From: Austin Roberts Subject: Re: Bee Gees' Odessa Although I'm a big fan of most of the Bee Gees Music, my favorite cuts are with Robin as the lead vocalist. His is one of the most unusual and haunting voices I've ever heard. Also, for some reason, the Bee Gees Holiday reminds me of the Left Banke's Pretty Ballerina. Don't really know why. Both songs are two of my favorites of all time. Austin Roberts -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

It is often included in greatest hits packages by the Bee Gees. I have an old European double LP where it is included. Mike Page -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 15 Date: Fri, 05 Mar 2004 08:36:35 +0100 From: Eddy Subject: Re: Bee Gees' Odessa Hi Art, Saved by the bell is a ballad and much too sweet for my taste. Nice big production though! It was a huge hit all over Europe : # 2 in the UK and # 1 in many other countries. Personally I found it a bit of a disappointment compared to the Bee Gees at the time, just like Robin's Reign album. But apparently the Bee Gees themselves liked it enough to include it on their 2001 Their Greatest Hits - The Record 2cd compilation. But then again, maybe that's just because it was such a huge hit here. Eddy -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 16 Date: Fri, 05 Mar 2004 19:03:47 -0000 From: Julio Niño Subject: The Tammys & Lou Christie Go Zonk!! / Millie / Johnny Cymbal Hola everybody. Mick Patrick wrote about "Girls Go Zonk!!": > View track list here: Guau ¡, very interesting web page about The Tammys and the turgid Lou Christie. Thanks Mick. These last days I can't get my mind off a little song by Millie "Mixed Up, Fickle, Lonely, Self Centred, Spoiled Kind Of Boy" (first issued in 1966 as Brit WI1002/ B-side), included in the recent Trojan CD "Time Will Tell" as a bonus track. It's an uptempo poppie song in pure GG style. I´ve read in the CD booklet that the track was recorded in NYC in 1966, but they give no information about the writers or the producer. I'm convinced that it must be a cover. Could anybody tell me more about this song?. Changing the subject, I've been listening to some Johnny Cymbal early recordings. I always find very sexy "Mr. Bass Man" (I refuse to explain why, I'm going to try to protect the ruins of my reputation). The superlative backing voices in "Marshmallow" and "There Goes a Bad Girl" have caught my "ear", I love them. Who were those girls?. Chao.

Message: 17 Date: Thu, 04 Mar 2004 11:17:40 +0000 From: Phil X. Milstein Subject: Re: You Are What You Eat credits update I finally got off my butt and checked out the credits on the You Are What You Eat album. I was mistaken in crediting John Simon alone for "The Wabe," which is currently playing at musica. Both artist and writing credits actually belong to John Simon and Peter Yarrow together (with nothing left over for poor Lewis Carroll). The album itself was a 1968 release on Columbia Masterworks, with the production credited to Simon, Yarrow and Phil Ramone. By the way I don't know if it's commonly known that The Band back up Tiny Tim on his two cuts on that album, I Got You Babe (in a duet with the adorable non-singer Eleanor Bucharian) and "Be My Baby." --Phil M. -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Message: 20 Date: Thu, 04 Mar 2004 14:17:26 EST From: Austin Roberts Subject: Re: What happened to those "Hits" Hey Dave, I've had a lot more non-hits than hits, as I'm sure we all have. I thought "Shelly Tell Me Why" (as River Deep, I think) had a shot. I was surprised when "Boo On You," by me as Bazooka, didn't happen, as it acted like it wanted to. I thought "Sing Out The Love" by The Arkade was gonna happen, since KHJ in LA picked us up out of the box (I think we went all the way up to 99 on the top 100; wow!). I thought my first single, "Mary And Me," looked good, as it was top 10 wherever it got play, but unfortunately not enough people played it. "Something's Wrong With Me" confused us until Jerry Fin, the great promo man for Chelsea Records, figured out that after it got 3 weeks of good airplay in any market it would sell like a mutha. "Rocky" surprised me as to how fast it took off, all over the world actually. We all thought my version of "Keep On Singing" (although it did go top 15 Adult Contemporary) would be bigger top 100 (where it went to 50, I think). Helen Redddy's record was bigger. Also, John Hill and I wrote for and produced me on a record called "Georgia, I'm Coming To You" on PIP (although I don't remember what we called the group), that I thought could happen. There have been many country records I've had as a writer that became big hits, and some that didn't that I was hoping for. Bottom line, you do what you do and hope it's in the cards. I can't complain. Best, Austin Roberts PS I still wonder why Hanna-Barbera didn't release some of our Scooby Doo trax as singles. -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 21 Date: Thu, 04 Mar 2004 10:24:26 -0700 (MST) From: That Alan Gordon Subject: Re: Hit$ and Misses Dave O was asking about songs we thought just couldn't miss. Well, as Art Baker used to say, "Dave O, You Asked For It!" Garry Bonner and I were in the studio in L.A. back in '67. Dino, Desi & Billy were the act. As I recall, Dino was the only one present. We recorded "Two In The Afternoon" and "Kitty Doyle". We also did "When The Good Sun Shines" Hank Levine did a beautiful arrangement,. Dino did the vocals on the first two songs, and left the studio. Garry and I were listening to the beautiful track of the third song, we took out the Bambu papers and kept listening over and over. And then it happened: "The Idea". The angels above must've been bored and in need of a good laugh. I stood up and said, "I've got it! We will be the act to do this song, but we'll do it as two young kids, Elmo & Almo." We returned to the hotel. The Ideas were coming fast and furious. We summoned Charles Koppelman and Don Rubin from New York. We would put the record out on our own label, Daddy Best Presents. Charles and Don arrived in a few days and set up a meeting with Mo Ostin at Reprise. Mo liked the CON-cept! Full-page ads in all the trades, although Elmo & Almo themselves would never be seen. An artist drew two characters, young boys with a flower in each of their hair. The next step would be a Saturday morning TV animated show. We huddled together at the hotel room as Charles set up a meeting with Mort Werner, VP of development at NBC. When Charles mentioned "I hope Mort likes The Idea," I stood up and replied, "Of course he'll like it!," emphasizing the words by stomping down with my right foot. Alas, I was not wearing shoes, and underneath the thin carpet was a thick slab of concrete. YEAOWWW! I thought I'd fractured my heel, but X-rays showed only a bruise. Nevertheless Charles and Don got me crutches. The meeting with NBC went well, BUT: all was contingent on the single being a hit. But when it was finally released it made it only made as far as the low 90s on Billboard, and that was the end of Elmo & Almo. A postscript: About 2 years later, I got a letter from the DMV [Division of Motor Vehicles]. I had to go down and renew my driver's license. It was a rainy day when I was going to do it, although I dreaded going to downtown Brooklyn, not to mention waiting all day on that line that never ends. When I went to my closet to get my trenchcoat, there in the back of the closet I saw my old Elmo & Almo crutches. THAT'S IT!!! If I was on crutches, they'd be BOUND to let me go to the head of the line. I arrived at the DMV, a building specifically designed to hold several hundred malcontents with multiple identities. I placed the crutches under my arms and entered the building. I felt like Walter Neff, Fred MacMurray's character in "Double Indemnity," as he boarded a train feigning a broken leg. I limped in, then put my left foot up and held it. After several minutes, I began to get a cramp in my leg. I slowly put my left foot down, and then slowly lifted my right foot up. I realized I was doing the freakin' Hokey Pokey! No one gave a damn about the jerk in the trenchcoat -- I could've been only a head on the ground, with no body attached, standing there, and they STILL wouldn't've let me go to the head of the line. All because of Elmo & Almo. Best, That Almo -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 22 Date: Thu, 04 Mar 2004 08:05:53 -0800 (PST) From: David Coyle Subject: Tim Buckley on "The Monkees" I believe the song Tim Buckley performed on "The Monkees" (final episode?) was "Dolphins," written and originally recorded by Fred Neil who also wrote "Everybody's Talkin" and "Other Side Of This Life". I haven't been a longtime fan of Buckley's and I only have his first two albums, but I too was struck by the vocal resemblance between he and Micky Dolenz. I always thought of Tim Buckley as sounding like a serious Micky Dolenz. But would Dolenz have had Buckley's range? On a semi-related note: Has anyone noticed that current opera-pop (is that accurate?) sensation Josh Groban has a strange resemblance to Buckley?

Via: "The most successful British instrumental group in chart history, The Shadows, are back together for one last hurrah. Hank B. Marvin, the legendary guitarist whose style influenced dozens of young aspiring axemen from Peter Frampton to Mark Knopfler, will reunite with bassist Bruce Welch and drummer Brian Bennett for what’s being billed as The Final Tour, a massive 37-date itinerary that starts on April 30 and concludes at the London Palladium on June 14. Universal will release the 45-track double CD, Life Story -- The Very Best Of The Shadows, on June 26. The album will include the newly-recorded instrumental 'Life Story,' which really does bring the story of the 'Shads' full-circle as it was written by Jerry Lordan, who recorded their first smash 'Apache,' a massive No.1 hit in 1960." - michael -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
