Message: 1 Date: Mon, 19 Apr 2004 13:25:22 -0700 From: Hal Muskat Subject: Tex and The Chex It took years to finally go somewhere other then Atlantic Recds or my head to inquire about a band I used to see and hang out with back on Long Island & Brooklyn in the early 60's. I still have the bands biz card and photo! Imagine how absolutely elated to find this list AND a reference from Alan Gordon, the bands drummer(?), to Tex and The Chex. I met them when they played a couple gigs in Syosset, hung with them @ in Brooklyn @ Sid Gordon's bowling and gambling and at some other parties in Coney Island and some of the guys showed up @ my 18th b'day party. I'd love to hear from Alan and find out what ever happened to Tex and the rest of those band mates. What a trip to read your credit list. Wondering if you ever met my cousin, sessions drummer Gary Chester? Hal Muskat -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Two off the top of my head: > The Bittersweets---What a Lonely Way to Start the Summertime > The Beas---International Girl Maybe a girl group is no longer obscure if it has appeared on a "Girls in the Garage" bootleg compilation? The Beas track is on one of the "Girls..." CDs. The Bittersweets track, however, hasn't shown up on any compilation, as far as I know. I have it on tape, and it's one of the best Shangri-las ripoffs ever: oodles of eerie atmosphere and bad attitude. And the worst obscure girl group I've heard: The Chips. On Philips, I believe.

Message: 4 Date: Mon, 19 Apr 2004 16:24:39 -0400 From: ACJ Subject: Re: Del-Satins; Kelly Garrett First, about the Del-Satins' "Feeling No Pain": Is this the same early Burt Bacharach song that our ol' pal Paul Evans once recorded? And, if memory serves (and it sometimes doesn't), Kelly Garrett - or someone with a very similar name - was a regular on a short-lived '70s revival of "Your Hit Parade" on CBS-TV. (It co-starred Chuck Woolery, which brings up other subjects, I'm sure.) ACJ -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

It's quite a mover so place high all > expensive ornaments :-) And I write: Both tracks (as Ken knows) have had their moments on the Northern Soul circuit. But they are what I would call "Northern" and not necessarily "Soul". Terrific Sixties Discotheque records then. Simon -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

I wrote: > The song is "Mr. Lonely" by Bobby Vinton. Rodney R: > No, I have Vinton's song. It goes: Lonely--I'm Mr. Lonely etc. Two other songs come to mind: Mr. Lonely by the Videls (I don't think this is it). Lonely Blue Boy by Conway Twitty. -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 9 Date: Mon, 19 Apr 2004 03:18:27 -0000 From: gogogo_ohyeah Subject: Shangri-Las help Hello all, I've had some fantastic emails, and it's all helping me to construct a great Shangri-Las website. If anyone has any odd pic sleeves or can find unusual/rare images from magazines that can be scanned that'd be awesome. If you do scan any images please include in the email the magazine it's from and the date, and most importantly if it's available, the photographer for credit.!! Someone mentioned in a newsgroup about a Rolling stone magazine in the 80's that had an item with mary Weiss in it, Ive looked through old Rolling Stones from the 80's that I have. Does anyone know of this? ALSO, have the Shangri-Las ever been in Mojo Magazine? I have a lot of the issues but am missing approx 40. If anyone knows of an issue they've appeared in please email me the issue number, as I have access to a full collection. Thanks again... :-) -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
