Message: 1 Date: Wed, 24 Mar 2004 10:00:27 -0800 From: Michael Godin Subject: Re: The Guess Who I had Chad Allen, the original lead singer of the Guess Who on my Internet radio show, Treasure Island Oldies, earlier this year. He and I chatted and played "Lost Treasures" by The Guess Who for over an hour including of course Shakin' All Over. In my opinion, their version far surpassed the Johhny Kid & The Pirates original. It was a fascinating interview and Chad, who I have known for many years, is a wonderful guy. He still has a great passion for music. Judging from the response from listeners all over the world, they too appreciated the time Chad took to come to the studio for an insightful visit. Cheers.

The female lead on Night Time Is The Right Time live is Hendricks. Don't recall a female counter lead on Tell The Truth; just the Raelettes ensemble.....

I've got this 45 and what a fun record it is, a 4 Seasons inspired take on Judy Garland's classic with great falsetto and harmonies, plus a nod to the Beach Boys with the "whoa whoas". Despite the beat being a tad too bouncy for my taste, I'm sure a lot of S'poppers would get a kick from it. They can judge for themselves, as it is now playing in musica. B-side "Runaround Girl" is also firmly in the Seasons style, but with the strong lead guitar it more invokes their later Philips records. The label credits The Portraits featuring Jerry Tauney -- is he the same as Jerry Tawney, who had a 45 or two on Liberty? I note you're credited as co-arranger on "Rainbow" and have sole arranger credit on "Runaround" -- did you work on any other records for Sidewalk (and its sister (?) label Uptown)? I've got quite a soft spot for these labels, half of which seem to possess Bob Summers or the delightfully named Harley Hatcher as writer and/or arranger-producer. > With the record out, we appeared on TV-8 Dancetime in San Diego and > Priscilla was on the same show with her current single (which, IIRC, > was on York). Guess it must have been "He Noticed Me"/"Help Me" on York, super two- sider also arranged by Don (T)Peake. Sounds like he must have been a fan of Charles Green and Brian Stone's friend Jack Nitzsche. > BTW, I'm new in here (as of a few days ago), first learned of the > group from Jeff Lemlich, and was encouraged to join it by Phil > Milstein, both long-time online friends.

Message: 7 Date: Wed, 24 Mar 2004 14:25:50 -0800 (PST) From: David Coyle Subject: The Paul Simon Songbook Can anyone tell me why I never heard anything about "The Paul Simon Songbook," PS's rare solo album, being reissued? This is the album Paul recorded in England in 1965 after the failure of the first Simon and Garfunkel LP, including tunes that would be reworked with S&G over the course of their remaining albums. This included two songs never re-recorded in a studio setting by one or both parties. Simon has resisted reissuing this album for years. He even disavowed some of the songs in the original liner notes, stating that he "did not believe in them" as he once had. Definitely, there are some awkward moments in the album -- Paul's somewhat shaky start to "I Am A Rock," notable foot-tapping during some of the choruses. But Paul sounds more angry on some tracks, including "Sound Of Silence." Very definitely in the folk singer- songwriter mode. It's interesting to note that "Side Of A Hill" is quite different from the "Canticle" which provides the counterpoint to their later recording of "Scarborough Fair." Similar lyrics, different melody. The reissue has two bonus tracks, alternate versions of "Rock" and "A Church Is Burning" (which includes 6-string guitar rather than 12), but the liner notes are no update from the original pretentious, dismissive scribes from 1965. One gets the feeling that Simon hasn't changed his views on the album and simply allowed them to reissue it without his input. I stumbled across this in Wal-Mart of all places. Definitely an "ohmigosh!" moment. And it's a Columbia Legacy reissue, produced by Bob Irwin, so it's not some grey-market budget product. Definitely a must get for Paul Simon/S&G fans...

Message: 9 Date: Wed, 24 Mar 2004 05:58:24 -0800 (PST) From: Lapka Larry Subject: Cameo/Parkway Dear S.J.: I also have a lot of bootleg Cameo/Parkway material stashed away, so although I can listen to these songs when I want like you can, I really think the general music loving public is being stiffed by these guys. By the way, my son loves Chubby Checker. My son is eight years old. If that isn't reason enough to put out a legitimate CD of Chubby's hits, I don't know what is.

He also co-wrote the incredible Everlys track "Lord > Of The Manor." Steve Harvey added: > Terry Slater also wrote their often overlooked hit, "Bowling Green". I hadn't known the same cat wrote both those exceptional songs. Together they crystallize for me the essence of the Everly's late- '60s/progressive period, when they were at one of their creative peaks yet repeatedly struck out at the proverbial box office. It seems that Warners made a solid attempt to re-market the act, but, as the Beach Boys also experienced, having an "oldies" name at that time was a commercial albatross. --Phil M. -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Even tho many are "downer" lyrics, they really hit you in the heart and make you feel better. Plus, many are very uplifting as well. I have to again thank my buddy Spectropopper Doug Richard for getting me to truly recognize Phil's greatness. His pop songs are wonderful too. The Varese Cd of demos is a "must have".

Message: 12 Date: Wed, 24 Mar 2004 10:30:10 -0000 From: Billy G. Spradlin Subject: Re: "Guess Who?" Lloyd Davis: > The studio had only one microphone, a mono recording deck, and no > playback monitors. The guitars were plugged into and mixed through > a single amp. When the drums were judged to be too loud, they were > moved away from the mic. I feel that Randy Bachman's "The TV studio had only one microphone" was kind of a tall tale. I have seen many pictures of 60's American TV studios where they had 3 or more boom mics around. That Canadian TV station where they recorded must have been extremly primative or just cheap to own only one (and maybe only one camera too?). "Shakin" is a little distorted but you can hear everything. Its not a murky, muddy recording like "Louie Louie". My guess they stood in a circle around that one mic and bashed it out. I have heard Johnny Kidd's original and many covers but nothing has beat the Expressions/ Guess Who's version. I love Chad Allan's horse voice, the snarling almost outta tune guitars and someboy hitting a wrong note near the end. A garage band classic.

I understand that Mary & Lorraine had a falling out in the 70's; hope they can patch it up. I'm speaking solely for myself, but if you can do *any* sort of update story on the group members, it would be greatly appreciated. And it's even possible some of the other members would enjoy it, too (Anybody?) You may have met someone named Phil at the Spectropop party; there's a few of us who belong to Spectropop; but it wasn't me. But I'd LIKE to go to one of the parties in the future.

So far, I have found the following C/P subs: Wyncote (their budget label), Lucky Eleven, Sentar, Windy C, Vando, Fairmount, Winchester, Key-Loc, and Cheltenham. Some of you may recall that MGM bought Cameo/Parkway in 1968 and out of that merger came four albums: two on Cameo (Ohio Express' first LP, Village Stompers), one on Parkway (Bunny Sigler), and one on Vando (Chris Bartley). Then along came Allen Klein and Abkco, and the rest is history -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Watched Bob Seger get inducted into the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame last week on VH1. Sad to say that due to Allan Klein, his true rock n roll best is still unavailable. You think that Capitol stuff was good? You ain't heard Bob Seger rock for real until you hear the Cameo (Hideout originally) stuff!! That's what I want to hear first from these vaults. makes sense with the induction so recent. Take care, Clark -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Speaking of Paul > Revere, anyone recall the song "Undecided Man"? I believe it was a > "b" side but recieved significant airplay at liberal Top 40 stations. Jim, indeed, "Undecided Man" is a truly great great song! I feel it to be Mark Lindsay's stab at his own "Eleanor Rigby"--and a darn near perfect one, at that! Similarly, Todd and Utopia did "Life Goes On" on "Deface the Music", their take off on the Beatles, and again, a great job! Then, if Rick Springfield hadn't already done his take on "Eleanor Rigby" (the 11 minute hard rock version with Aussie band "Zoot"), his closest would be the excellent "Like Father, Like Son". I really like all 4 songs alot and once played them back to back on my radio show. Back to "Undecided Man", it was the "B' side to "Good Thing" and as Dex Card called it on WLS when he played it, it was a TSW (Two sided winner)! WKYC played it alot too in Cleveland and it did chart many areas. I was glad to get it on Cd finally when Sundazed reissued the "Spirit of '67" Lp after the song had been shunned for their Sony double Cd greates hits package.

Message: 17 Date: Thu, 25 Mar 2004 01:49:32 -0500 From: Country Paul Subject: Antonio Prieto/"Rumores" on musica Now playing at musica: Antonio Prieto (y Orquestra de El Carioca), "Rumores" (wr. Joaquin Prieto, pr. unknown) RCA-Victor [Mexico] 76-1205, 1961. Definitely rockier than the version of this song that Julio Nino posted a few weeks back, this was all over the radio in Puerto Rico when I was there for Christmas vacation in 1961. Sadly, the flip side (totally forgettable) presents Prieto as a middle-road guy, but this rock ballad – or “rock lento” as the label calls it - "gets it." Suggested further listening: Jesse Belvin's beautiful "Guess Who" and Ray Peterson's original "The Wonder of You," both RCA Victor and around the same era, and both worth finding. (To my ears, Peterson's original totally eclipses Presley's later rushed remake.) I'm way behind on posts again - hope to catch up soon!

Yes, that kind of thing became a brief mini-fad, after the "Canadian Sunset"-like intro of "My Guy" (Actually, I think there are one or two notes different). Tony Clarke's "The Entertainer" (great record!) began with "I've Got Plenty Of Nothin'" (or maybe the actual title is something else?) gem -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

In my mind I can hear > April Stevens cooing the song while wearing a transparent negligee. Nice song, though I think I'd like it more if it was a bit breathier - a la the late Priscilla Paris.

The U.S. label was Parrot I have a 45 by him, "That's What Sends Men To The Bowery;" his identity remains a mystery, but I rather like the track - almost too cute to be as poignant as it is. Phil Milstein: > While searching online for some further information on the death of > Priscilla Paris, I located a site that carries current and accurate > mini-obits of prominent names.... Sad to note the passing of J. J. Jackson, an original MTV VJ, who I knew when he worked at WBCN in Boston. Great guy, very musically astute and mellow. Also Mary Ann Fisher - I didn't know anyone still remembered her; glad they do. Happy to note the coming of Cameo-Parkway catalog. Re: the citation by "superoldies" of Georgie Young & The Rockin' Boys ("9 More Miles"), I thought I was the only one who remembered that! Lloyd Davis, that's a great history of the Guess Who's origins. (Sorry I got the Expressions' name wrong.) I remember "Till We Kissed" and "Hey Ho (What You Do To Me)" quite well; both were very good. Their quality probably reinforced my distaste for the group once the self- conscious voice of Burt Cummings took the lead. Thank you's to: ...Jeff Lemlich, for the Keepers of the Light 45 - much rockier (and dare I say, punkier) that the later Alzo & Udine and Also solo work. Kinda fun, and indicative of some of the fresh interesting stuff posted at musica these days. ...Billy G Spradlin, Re: Rhino Handmade CDs > "No One Was There" is in mono. I think it's a beautifully impressive > song, reminding me of the Association's work at the time. Would have > loved to have heard a stereo mix/remix. Also interesting to me that > Harper's Bizarre copied the same arrangement as VDP's MGM version. Thanks for the report, Billy. I've got several of these on 45, but I think I'm gonna have to spring for it and buy it and the companion "psych" CD as well. ...Gary Myers, for the Bernie Schwartz discography. He had significantly more releases than I had thought. I think "Follow Me" from The Wheel LP could've been a hit if it had been recorded better; the same possibly with "Peace on Earth." The man certainly had a nice voice. More to come, Country Paul -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

It now seems that is probably not the case. Googling Browning Bryant, I have learned he was born in Pickens, SC, was a child movie star, and is still recording to some degree. From the Child Movie Star site, ''Browning Bryant was a protégé of country music great Eddy Arnold, and appeared with him on the Kraft Music Hall. I have two of his albums, "Patches," and "One Time in a Million." He was a powerful young singer with a clear, melodic voice. His songs ran the gamut from playful ("Running Bear"), to pop ("Jean"), to thought provoking ("Papa Says").'' There's a Yahoo discussion group about him, in which he also participates: It mentions new CD's by him, but you have to be a member of the group to get into the files where's they are described in more detail.

Message: 22 Date: Fri, 26 Mar 2004 00:04:38 -0000 From: Bob Celli Subject: John West's Recordings with Gary Lewis & The Playboys Some time ago there was a question about John West's participation on any of Gary Lewis and the Playboys recordings. I finally got an answer from the former president of Gary's fan club, who was very up on these things. His answer to me is below: Bob Celli Hi Bob, I was deleting old emails and found your question about John West playing on the playboys records with Gary. Per Gary (and take this with a grain of salt) John didn't play the cordovox on any of the records. Leon Russell usually played the keyboard parts on all the pre-Army records of Gary Lewis & the Playboys releases. Keyboard being piano or harpsichord, although I know that an organ was used on some tracks as well. Gary did tell me that during the recording of the HITS AGAIN LP that he and the Playboys played their own instruments on 11 tracks. Snuff Garrett wasn't involved in the the release of that LP. He produced SURE GONNA MISS HER at the same time as SHE'S JUST MY STYLE. I guess Gary fired him then for not releasing a double sided hit. Gary and Dave PELL produced the SHE'S JUST MY STYLE and HITS AGAIN LPs. I know the first LP, THIS DIAMOND RING, was done with all professional sessionmen--the group wasn't allowed in to play on it. You know Snuff and his control! Hope that helps. If I get together with Gary next month I'll ask him again about who played what on the records. Take care, Bob -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
