It's from the FAB Fuzz Acid & Flowers website at The Chartbusters Personnel incl: Mitch Corday, drms; John Dubas, bs; Vince Gideon, gtr; Vernon Sandusky, gtr, vcls 45s: She's The One/Slippin' Thru Your Fingers Mutual 502, 1964 Why (Doncha Be My Girl)/Stop The Music Mutual 508, 1964 You're Breakin' My Heart/Can't You Hear Me Calling Mutual 511, 1965 New Orleans/Lonely Surfer Boy Crusader 118, 1965 Kick Wheeler/Selfish Girl Crusader 124, 1965 One Bird In The Hand/Maybe Crusader 129, 1966 Leavin' You/One Bird In The Hand Is Worth Two In The Bush Bell 652, 1966 Grass Houses/Dance Dance Bell 683, 1967 Originally known as Bobby Poe & The Poe Kats, from Kansas, they moved to Washington DC at the start of the sixties. Bobby Poe dropped out of performing to handle the management side, but the remaining members carried on under the same name, backing Big Al Downing. In 1964, as a side project, and in response to the wave of Invasion sounds, they cut She's The One with the above line-up as The Chartbusters, and bust 'em they did! This meant leaving the comfort of Big Al and going for it as a bona-fide sixties band. They took their chance and, having invaded the sixties invasion, stayed with it through to the end of the decade. Few genuine rock'n'roll groups from the fifties can have made the transition more successfully or lastingly. Vernon Sandusky later became lead guitarist for Roy Clark, a guitarist, banjo and fiddle player from Virginia. --Max Waller I would still like to know if there is a collection of their tracks out there. Thanks! Chris -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 2 Date: Wed, 14 Apr 2004 10:41:16 -0000 From: Kanguru Subject: Thelma Camacho One of my favourite singers from the '60s was Thelma Camacho. I love the way she sings and her voice too. She wrote very good songs in her First Edition days, songs like "I Passed You By" and "All That I Am". Unfortunately she did a very awful LP in the '80s. It's a disco LP, and it's not so good like the First Edition days. I know that she released some singles, and if I'm not wrong she was part of New Christy Minstrels. Does anybody know if she released another album after leaving the First Edition ? -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Anyone else know more about this band? Did they put out any records or were they just a singles band? Chris -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 4 Date: Tue, 13 Apr 2004 08:01:09 -0000 From: Lex Subject: Shangri-Las help! Help!!! I'm in the process of building a website dedicated solely to the Shangs, and need help from people. I'm trying to get any info, images, interviews any memorabilia, anything, to provide for reference material and info that other fans may wanna read. It's strictly Shangri Las, SOOooooo, if anyone reading this has anything they can contribute to the site please e-mail me, I expect the site to be up in the next month or two. I have a lot of work to do trying to stylize the site so it looks all teen angst, and funky. What prompted me to do this was the fact that I found pages on various sites, and bits here n there, but not one concise all-Shangri- Las fan site. Spectrepop and Redbird are a joy to read, and have thus far provided immense inspiration and information! Many thanks for any help I can get. -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
