Message: 3 Date: Sat, 01 May 2004 09:20:32 EDT From: Al Kooper Subject: Re: Back To Mono As a student of recording techniques, i hate mono. Not much info for these thirsty ears here. I have learned important information from stereo versions of "I Only Have Eyes 4 U" by the Flamingos, "You Keep Me Hangin On" ny The Supremes, etc. Many years ago, I found a Japanese import of a one disc Phil Spector collection IN STEREO!!!! It's one of my most prized posessions. "Be My Baby", "Walkin' In The Rain", "Do I Love You" etc. Some brilliant mind asked to borrow it when Spector was inducted into the Hall of Shame and I'm sure that guy had a private laugh over that usage. I just listened to it the other day - it's still amazing.

As I understood it, the Gilbert Becaud version wasn't released until 1964(?). I came across an early version during my Lion safari by French Artist, Gloria Lasso, from 1962. It was on the same EP as her Lion rendition, and the featured song.

I only have a few Lost Nite records, including a couple of early 1960's issues, and some later reissues. I seem to recall hearing that Lost Nite became the Collectables label. Would you want that listing too?

Message: 7 Date: Sat, 01 May 2004 07:31:49 -0700 (PDT) From: Ted T. Subject: Murray the K Very nice to see the discussion and remembrances of Murray the K. The 'Swingin' Soiree', with it's resolute R&B slant, was a life saver to many (including me) between 1959 and 1963. Actually, Murray put his name on quite a few various artists LPs, a dozen or so, I'd guess, and they usually sold pretty well in the metropolitan area. At least a few of the early LPs were on the Chess label. A couple were recorded live at the Brooklyn Fox during Murray's all-star revues. One has become famous for featuring the Ronettes at the height of their heights. His shows, invariably during school vacations, often at the Brooklyn Fox, and later in mid-town Manhattan at the RKO 58th Street, were almost always big successes. Anybody who ever saw Murray in his prime at these shows can testify to his brilliant ability to tease, tweak and excite an audience, especially when he had headliners like Jackie Wilson by his side or ready to burst out from behind the curtains. After the British invasion, the Submarine Racewatchers Club evolved into the Murray the K International Fan Club, where you received an ID card, signed by Murray, that formally certified that the bearer 'is what's happening, baby.' Finally, round about 1965-66, Murray released at least one more single that I can remember, titled, aptly, 'It's What's Happening Baby'. He just talked over a rhythm track, 'lone twister' style, commenting on current musical and political trends. The record didn't get any plays on NY radio, though, except once or twice, oddly enough, on WWRL. I think it was on Red Bird, but somebody better check me on it.

It seems to me that horn line came from a song on the first BS&T LP - was it "I Love You More Than You'll Ever Know"? (Al?) And, I think I once heard that Al and/or BS&T got it from a Coltrane lick. gem ----------------------------------------------------------- New @ S'pop: The Daughters Of Eve, Nora Guthrie, Ron Dante, Please Phil Spector, Girls Go Zonk!!, Priscilla Paris...

It seems to me that today's young listeners dont' get much concept of variety - one has to change stations to hear something different. (I think some of these stations could just program a drum machine all day and their audience wouldn't notice the difference!). I feel very fortunate to have grown up with the musical variety of the late 40's (when I was VERY young )- late 70's. gem ----------------------------------------------------------- New @ S'pop: The Daughters Of Eve, Nora Guthrie, Ron Dante, Please Phil Spector, Girls Go Zonk!!, Priscilla Paris...

He'd call from London sometimes in the middle of the night just to talk (and talk about the Darts). I worked with Bobby Hart for 25 years and wish they had written together in the 70's, 80's and 90's. Anyway, his wife Caroline found one of his books with a very funny note to me in it and sent it to me. Tommy was definitely one of a kind.

It looks like their web hosting service (powweb.com) is having major problems, I've been having trouble accessing other sites that are hosted with them. Rat Pfink ------------------------------------------------------------------- I emailed Borderlinebooks and the email was returned. I have previously sent them emails, suggesting corrections and/or additions as I am sure all of us could. This is the first time I ever had the email bounce. However, I might add there was a time back in 2001 when they were changing/updating servers that they were down for almost two weeks and came back. I am hoping it is something like this and nothing more. They were a great resource. I do have the latest copies of three of their books, if anyone should need anything from them. Peace, Orion ------------------------------------------------------------------- There was some discussion of this in the 60's newsgroup. Apparently the site is being updated, with (God willing) at least some error corrections finally being implemented. Joe Nelson ------------------------------------------------------------------- Yes, I recently received an email from Max Waller of that site. It seems they were so overloaded with emails that they overlooked the one about their website contract renewal, so it expired. They hope to be back up within a month. gem ------------------------------------------------------------------- I don't know whether the Borderline Books website is gone permanently. But Fuzz, Acid, & Flowers is probably fully archived at the Wayback Machine: http://www.archive.org/index.php If you know the URL of a website (or can find it with a search engine), plug it into the Wayback Machine, and you can see how that website looked at different dates. This works both for websites that have been updated and for websites that no longer exist. It's a little tricky in the case of Fuzz, Acid, & Flowers, because that website appears to have used absolute rather than relative links for internal navigation, but now I'm getting too far off topic. E-mail me if you want further tips.

When I was 15, a friend an I were hanging around outside WRIT (Milw) about 2AM and, instead of yelling at us, he invited us in and showed us around. A few years later, when I heard him on WLS and wrote to him, he answered my letter and even mentioned a little story about me on the air one night. Several years ago, after getting Stew Salowitz' book about WLS, I tracked Weber down, wrote to him, and he responded with a very gracious letter - a very nice man. gem ----------------------------------------------------------- New @ S'pop: The Daughters Of Eve, Nora Guthrie, Ron Dante, Please Phil Spector, Girls Go Zonk!!, Priscilla Paris...

Message: 22 Date: Sun, 02 May 2004 08:14:28 -0400 From: Mikey Subject: Re: Back To Mono Al, agreed about the Spector stereo. Actually, the Ronettes Lp was released in true stereo in 1963/4. Phil actually DID mix alot of his stuff to stereo, he just wanted the 45s to be mono for Radio play. He wasn't adverse to making a few extra bucks by selling the stereo LP for more than the mono, as did all record labels at that time. If you want to FREAK, get ahold of the 5 Cd "Spector Sessions" set. It's a "Gray Area" Cd, but it is amazing because it comes from "safety tapes". Not copies of mono masters, mind you, rather, Phil had Goldstar run a stereo machine off the board outputs that was running all the time, thru the tune ups, meetings, run thrus, etc. thus, it recorded EVERYTHING that happened during a Phil Spector Session, including Phil joking around with the musicians. It's like being in the control room with Phil, Larry and Sonny!!

I really love this much more energetic poppier version than the Grassroots one. Ray Whitley wrote the songs and I think wrote their followup, "Backwards and Forwards" too. I'm wondering if anyone out there knows Ray's story?? He wrote some songs for Vee Jay artists I believe and also wrote "Ive Been Hurt", the Bill Deal & Rhondels classic. The Sensational Epics did it earlier on Cameo. Was Ray from Chicago, by chance?
