To view it, go here and select "Photos" from the menu. Paul Levinson, you wrote their "Lemons And Limes". Rashkovsky, you produced it. Can either of you put names to the faces of the group?

Hi, Sean, I have forwarded your mail to Maggie Stredder, the founder and leader of the Ladybirds. Who else could more accurately fill in some of the blanks and give first hand info...? By the way, I have posted a recent picture of Maggie, as well as Maggie's current Ladybird partner Kay Garner, on the "hello" page of my website. Check it out. The ladies are a treat - to listen to, as much as to look at :) Very best, Mark W. -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Perhaps she was his second, or etc. The former Mirriam Johnson of Mesa, Arizona, (and the future Jessi Colter) was the second Mrs. Duane Eddy. And, of course, later she married Waylon Jennings. She still lives here in the Phoenix metropolitan area. The current Mrs. Duane Eddy (as far as I know) is a lady named Deed. Dan N. Phoenix, Arizona, U.S.A. -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

I asked: > ... was the original master (of the long version of Verdelle > Smith's "Tar And Cement") used for the "Zonk!!" CD compilation? Mick Patrick wrote: > Yes it was. ** Mick - I love you!! ** > Is the short version (as issued on 45 in the UK and USA) available > on CD? Are you kidding - it's available everywhere!! Any time I buy a CD I think I might get the complete version but I only end up with the short one. There was an Aussie CD compilation called "People Gotta Be Free" which featured the long version - but it was obviously dubbed from a single. By the way, Miss Smith's Capitol LP features a song "God How Much I Love You", which was O Dio Come Ti Amo from San Remo in 1966. The LP also features A Piece Of the Sky (superb!),Walk Tall and Autumn Leaves - as well as Over The Rainbow & Toot Toot Tootsie It's a mixed bag indeed Thanks Mick Steve -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Mick Patrick wrote about the Chairmaines > ...the Charmaines, the Cincinnati girl group... Is there any > evidence to support the theory that the Fraternity/Dot > Charmaines are the same group that recorded for Date, Columbia > and Minit?... Mick , according to Kev Roberts, The Charmaines that recorded for Date and Columbia were a girl group from Detroit, so maybe they are different groups. There is a revealing article about the Charmaines in this direction: I´m going to continue lazing around and petting my two hairy beasts (Kike y Paca, my two cats). Chao. Julio Niño. -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
