I hope the Smile tour does come to the US, too - all those raves from our UK friends have made me jealous! I'm off to Hawaii for a couple of weeks - no computer, so I'll be back to being behind again - the story of my life! :-) (Please, no "large files" until May 3rd so that my inbox doesn't choke!) Happy springtime, everyone; stay happy! Mahalo, Country Paul -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Maybe if Mike reads this he can recall the names. The songs are credited to Fuzzy Bunnies Music Co., ASCAP - which ASCAP has no online record of, but the writers are John Turi - Alden Foote - Roger Valdez. Could these be any of the members? -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Yes those are three of the members, Turi was keys, Valdez was drums and vocals, Foote (aka Chuck Alden) was guitar and vocals--the fourth member Robbie? something was bass and vocals. They produced this one themselves with us sitting in the control room--each of us glaring at the other through the glass. Not fun.

Message: 4 Date: Sat, 17 Apr 2004 10:52:33 EDT From: Al Kooper Subject: Obscure girl group records Phil Milstein's fave obscure girl group records: > The Bittersweets: The Hurtin' Kind > The Lovelites: When I Get Scared > Terry & The Tunisians: Tom Tom > The Satisfactions: Daddy You Just Gotta Let Him In > The Tammys: Egyptian Shumba The only one I know is The Satisfactions which I only own because it was written at the publisher I was signed with back then. You must have a twisted sense of humor to announce owning the story of a gal who brings a Hells Angel home to meet her parents. One can't begin to wonder what The Lovelites are scared about....

I remember Stan Ziska quite well. Couldn't remember his name without you though. I have a Laurie and a Columbia single. One is "Who Cares" and the other is "Feelin' No Pain" I think. I met them at the Dion session for "Love Came To Me". Nice lads! Al "wishes he was feelin' no pain" Kooper Who Cares? -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Al Kooper: > One can't begin to wonder what The Lovelites are scared about. The Lovelites weren't afraid of much. They only released one record, but it sure was a good one: "(When) I Get Scared", written and produced by Peter Anders and Vincent Poncia, and released on Phil Spector's Phi-Dan label in 1966. The trio - who took their name from a Supremes record - were mentored by the legendary Doc Pomus, who hooked them up with Spector. Lead singer Joanna DeClemente became Mrs Poncia. Louise Robbins-Posnick is an S'pop member, and Linnie Stern attended the S'pop live Shindig in New York last summer. "(When) I Get Scared" is playing now @ musica: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/spectropop/files/musica/ The full story of the Lovelites, including some great pictures, is available on the group's own S'pop page.
