(Green-Kane-Salmirs) Gary Myers: I don't know anything about Joe London, but I can tell you something about the three songwriters you mentioned. Last year, I sent this group a message asking about a single I'd had for a long time (and still have), "Drums" b/w "The Magic Ring" by Kenny Chandler. "The Magic Ring" was written by Green-Kane-Salmirs and published by Trio Music Co., Inc. (BMI). -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Still sings better than great -- blew me away!" gem -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

I also remember hurrying home from school to see Where the Action Is with Paul Revere and the Raiders, etc. Great days! Hate to sound like my parents, but those were the Good Ole Days! We didn't need MTV in the sixties! KA -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

It was originally recorded by The Quivers and released on the Triola label. The Quivers was a Norwegian instrumental combo - what we called a Shadow Band - two guitars, bass and drums. There's a CD of their material, mostly Norwegian melodies on Triola. Triola was a Norwegian label. The CD can be purchased from Cruisin Records.

Message: 6 Date: Wed, 31 Mar 2004 07:40:18 -0000 From: Clark Besch Subject: Johnny does Sloan / Moog Montenegro / Top 40 Dinning Thanks to Mike McKay for posting the two PF Sloan songs to musica. When "Baby ..." came on, I thought I was listening to PF Sloan's piano intro from his demo! Johnny's vocal performance is just as expected: great! I will always prefer Phil Sloan's version, but it is great to have Johnny's.

I highly recommend the teriyaki steak/ > coconut shrimp combo. All eating aside, does anyone remember Hugo Montenegro's "Happy Together"? If you don't, don't think it's like "Good, Bad, Ugly" with the grunts and all. This was one of my first Moog synthesiser records. I received my DJ copy in late June, 1969. For some reason I can't find it now, but I remember this instrumental sounding very experimental, and may have been one of the first 45 A-sides using the Moog to such extent. Another first for "That" Alan Gordon? I kinda liked it to some extent. I know the song went top 10 in some markets, 'cause I have at least one chart with it #5. Good ole Hugo went to #11 here in Lincoln in Feb. '69 with his version of "Good Vibrations". I have a later (1970?) vocal version of "Lay Lady Lay" by Hugo from the LP "Dawn of Dylan"! If you weren't impressed with the "Hollies Do Dylan", you definitely won't be impressed by Hugo! I heard the Turtles' version (not any of the vocal part, just the instrumental parts) used in a commercial during CBS' "Sunday Morning" show this past Sunday. The legend lives on! I guess no one will ever have to ask That Alan Gordon, "What Ever Happened to Happy?" :) previously: > Are Dick & Deedee the backup singers on Mark Dinning's "Top 40, > News, Weather and Sports"? Sorry, I cannot answer your question, but what a great record that is! It was a hit everywhere but on the Hot 100! They had to pull copies and change the lyrics, but I really don't think many stations quit playing it because of the death of Lu Mumba. I have a tape my brother made off KOMA in Oklahoma City when the song was out, and the DJ says "It's number 3 whether the line is in there or not!". Too bad our kids of today can't have homework problems like Mark had in 1960. By the way, "Top 40 ..." is slated for an upcoming Eric records comp on CD!! Can't wait! Take care, Clark -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

My own ChubCheck faverave is "The Fly," which if my ears don't deceive me uses an electric shaver to simulate the sound of a buzzing insect. > Chubby's ego? Let him have his ego!

I forget who among us suggested it first, but it makes sense to me that Chubby's "I deserve the Nobel Peace Prize"act is mere pro-wrestling schtick designed to promote his live appearances. After all, he can't be THAT delusional ... can he? --Phil M. -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 9 Date: Tue, 30 Mar 2004 12:19:30 -0800 (PST) From: Michael Fishberg Subject: Re: UK Oriole The person who WOULD know the most about this is Paul at Firebird Records, who has a stall just off Portobello Road market on Saturdays. He is a maven on this label, and will tell you the history of its foundation too. Especially interesting is the name, which was a variation of the name of R.E. Levy -- R.E.L. ... Oriole, geddit?
