I have two CDs-worth of Brian Hyland material that I have grabbed from here and there, and this guy should have been a huge star, he is very talented. I also have a DVD of Brian doing 3 songs live during the 80s. Pretty cool stuff!! Mikey -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Yes, John, I can!! My friend Ron Furmanek was producing a comp and was looking in the vaults for tapes of "Sally". He found several, and when he played them back, he found one tape that was significally cleaner and had less hiss than the others. This tape was a "stage" tape, it had everything except the organ and I think some percussion. So, this tape was used for that comp since it was so much better sounding than the final mix which was like 4 generations down. Thats the story!!

Message: 7 Date: Sat, 6 Nov 2004 09:33:35 -0600 From: Barry Subject: Jaynetts Discography I wish someone would compile a Jaynetts CD... Meanwhile, I found this on the web: The Jaynetts: This first 45 is actually Baby Washington singing lead on two songs for The Hearts, that had been recorded in 1957. This set of The Jaynetts was Zell Sanders' (The President Of J&S Records) way of keeping all The Hearts various members together and also of having enough members to form two groups. Zell Sanders would not use this name again for another five years. J&S 1765/1766 - I Wanted To Be Free/Where Are You Tonight (1958) The Jaynetts core members from 1963 ~ 1964 Were Lezli Valentine, Marie Hood And Louise (Harris) Murray. Other members: Ethel Davis, Selena Healey, Ada Ray Kelly, Marlina Mars, Mary Green Wilson And Iggy Williams. Tuff 369 - Sally, Go 'Round The Roses/(Instrumental) (1963) Tuff 371 - Keep An Eye On Her/(Instrumental) (1963) Tuff 374 - Snowman, Snowman Sweet Potato Nose/(Instrumental) (1963) Tuff 377 - There's No Love At All/Tonight You Belong To Me (1964) The Poppies: A Group made up of various members Of The Jaynetts (no relation to the Dorothy Moore group). Tuff 372 - Johnny Don't Cry/(Instrumental) (1963) Tuff 377 - There's No Love At All/Johnny Don't Cry (1964) (Same label number as above 45, but comes in promo issue only) The Clickettes: Members Lezli Valentine, Marlina Mars And Iggy Williams. When The Clickettes (The Barbara English version of the group) left Zell Sanders' Dice Record label they found out that Zell Sanders had all rights to the name, so they changed their name to The Fashions. Meanwhile Zell Sanders started to use the various members of The Hearts and The Jaynetts to form a new set of Clickettes. This was the only release from that line-up. Checker 1060 - I Just Can't Help It/(Instrumental) (1963) The Patty Cakes: A group made up of various members of the Jaynetts, with a novelty song about the Beatles. Tuff 378 - I Understand Them/(Instrumental) (1964) The Z-Debs: A group made up of various members Of The Jaynetts. Roulette 4544 - Changing My Life For You/I Would If I Could (1964) Zell Sanders formed another set of The Jaynetts on the revived J&S Label, core members now Evangeline Jenkins, Johnnielouise Richardson (Of Johnny & Joe Fame, suffered a stroke and died in 1988 at age 43), Linda Jenkins And Georgette Malone. J&S 1177 - Cry Behind The Daisies/Is It My Imagination (1964) J&S 1468/1469 - Chicken, Chicken, Cranny Crow/Winky Dinky (1964) J&S 1473 - Peepin' In And Out The Window /Extra Extra, Read All About It (1965) J&S 1477 - Who Stole The Cookie/That's My Baby (1965) J&S 1686 - Looking For Wonderland, My Lover/Make It An Extra (1965) J&S 4418/4419 - Vangie Don't You Cry /My Guy Is As Sweet As Can Be (1965) - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - LPs Tuff LP 13 - Sally Go 'Round The Roses - 1963 (the picture on the album cover was pieced together by Zell Sanders, It shows Lezli Valentine, Ethel Davis And An Unknown Young Lady) - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - The Jaynetts As Solo Artists: Vernell Hill (Ethel Davis): Tuff 381 - Long Haired Daddy/Sometimes Love (1964) Louise Murray (Currently Performs As The Two Hearts With her husband, Donald Gatling): Verve 10376 - For Some/The Love I Give (1966) Mary Sue Wellington (Mary Green Wilson): Tuff 400 - Saved/Save A Little Monkey (1964) Ada "Cry Baby" Ray (Ada Ray Kelly): Zell's 252 - I No Longer Believe In Miracles /Give Our Love A Chance (1963) Zell's 260 - I Cried To Be Free/Oh Come Back Baby (1964) Lezli Valentine (Now Retired From Music Business -- Works For The Postal Service) All Platinum 2305 - I Won't Do Anything /I've Got To Keep On Loving You (1968) All Platinum 2308 - I Won't Do Anything / Coward's Way Out (1968) Junior Achievement ? - Who Said To Make It Legal / ?

Message: 8 Date: Sat, 6 Nov 2004 12:55:38 EST From: Paul Urbahns Subject: Sally Go Round The Roses John Fox asked: > Sally Go 'Round The Roses" always seemed to have 2 versions > --one with and one without an organ. Can someone shed some > light on this? The original hit version had the organ and was issued in mono (as was the album). When Steve Hoffman was preparing a series of Collector's LPs for MCA he found an early underdub version of the song minus the organ, but in stereo. He had intended to remixit to true stereo but, not finding the organ part, he issued it without the organ. He left MCA soon afterwards, and the folks there (at MCA) did not know anything about product, so whenever anyone requested "Sally" they gave them the only digital copy they had, which was without the organ. Steve had never intended it to be issued outside of that one album. It was intended as a stereo first for collectors only. Without the organ the song sounds "stripped" and incomplete. The best version so far is the one on on the CD "The All-Time Greatest Girl Groups" (Varese Sarabande 302 066 110 2, 2000), which is the stereo version with the organ synced from the mono master. Hence, the organ is much weaker sounding than on the original mono mix. Paul Urbahns -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

I have two Lezli singles on All Platinum. She did credible versions of The Moments' "Not On The Outside" and my favorite "I Won't Do Anything". Never took her for a Jaynett. Viva Spectropop!

Artie's self-constructed rhythm section is faithfully replicated and the girls are bathed in echo, masking the fairly unintelligible lyric. To add to the quirkiness, the song is constructed over a twelve-bar verse and three-bar turnaround, except for the last verse where the Jaynetts bring in the chorus two bars early, regardless of the track! I've played my weary tape copy to musica. If anybody has happens to have a better copy, please let me know. PC -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

I remember finally finding a copy of the Fifth Estate's "Ding Dong The Witch Is Dead" LP, and being surprised at how different some of the released songs were from the alternate/demo versions on the Boston Skyline CD, which is excellent in its own right, but is hardly a best-of collection. I thought Sundazed was supposed to do some sort of Fifth Estate reissue, but never heard anything more about it. David -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Definitely agree! Brian's Del Shannon produced, self-titled 1970 LP was just put out on CD (Hip-O-Select) and is a total gem. "Gypsy Woman" is total class, and even his version of "The Thrill Is Gone" (of all things) is completely credible. Brian's always been a definite step above your average 60s pop star.

Mikey, I was impressed when I did the Brian "Yellow Polka Dot Bikini" demo at Allegro. He was really a nice kid, and yes, very talented. I have no idea where the final was done but there wasn't much difference. They basically stayed with exactly what they did on the demo.
