Message: 2 Date: Thu, 29 Jul 2004 14:25:04 -0000 From: Michel Gignac Subject: Mystery song to musica I have uploaded a 1968 song by french canadian band Les Sextants, called "Pourquoi Pas Moi" (Why Not Me?). Does somebody know what was the original song in English? The writers are Marshall, Passman and Jerry Ragovoy. Thank you, Michel -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Hi Spectropop people, I've posted a pic of their LP sleeve in the Photos section. It's on the last page of subfolder Miscellaneous > Named folders > Girl Singers. I'm not sure if the photo is of their original LP cover or re-release. The LP was made in Canada. No year of release enywhere. The Carefrees on the pic look rather old for 1964. Does anyone remember how the original LP looked like? Is it the same? -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Pretty inventive approach too--then he wrote a totally different song over the track called "Forget It" and released that. Maybe not illegal, but certainly something to remember him by. If he didn't like the song, why the hell did he cut it in the first place? Di la, Rashkovsky -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 5 Date: Thu, 29 Jul 2004 16:24:20 -0000 From: "hawkeyes95" Subject: Arkade (again!) to Musica Joe, thanks for the Arkade side I did not have! I have just posted their last single, "Fools Way of Lovin'" to Musica. I'll keep it for a short time, as it is outside the SPop era slightly. I believe it is sans Austin Roberts just as Austin thought. It is written Walsh and Price only, so Austin memory is (as usual) likely correct. The picture sleeve for the Chinese (I believe)45 does have the same US Pic sleeve photo, just close up, with all 3 members. It is pretty obvious that Austin is not singing lead, but a pretty good song either way. Hopefully, everyone now has most of the Arkade songs they need until someone in Japan puts out a legit Cd. :) Take care, Clark -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
