Message: 4 Date: Sat, 13 Nov 2004 02:49:06 -0000 From: Mark Radice Subject: Just re--released my first LP on CD from1971 ( I was 14) If anyone is interested (gee I hope so?) I just re-released my first LP Dad GEne Radice was the engineer (Hendrix, Lovin Spoonful, Vanilla Fudge, Cowsills, Mamas and Papas, there I think that's sufficient name dropping) and I think it sounds GREAT! But why wouldn't I? Seriously, this was back in the days when we actually had to hire a full orchestra (we did) and has over 20 well known musicians on it including Hugh McCracken (more name dropping) who was Paul McCartney's guitarist at the time, and lemme tellya, at 14 years old to have a guitarist who KNEW A BEATLE was the biggest thrill of my life! I couldn't sleep knowing he would be there the next day....and his work on this LP/CD still stands up, I'm so proud of it.... So far I have sold over 50 this week! I know, no biggie, but hey. Please go check it out if you're so inclined....thanks :) Mark -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Do you, by any chance, recall a singer named Stuart Self? He recorded for Ermine in the early 60's and label owner Bill Erman said he thought Self was from Cincy. He was kind of pop-country and his real name was apparently Starret Harden Self - may have had band called the Gents. gem -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

I met his ex-wife about 2 yrs ago. Although I doubt that she would have any session info that is not already on his website, I can try to contact her if you think it's worthwhile. gem -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Very cool track, but my favourite Kane Triplets' opus remains their vocal version of "Mission Impossible". That baby can be found on the RPM CD "Girls Go Zonk!!": > Dollops of girl group angst with dramatic arrangements and > production. Wonderful stuff.

You can read more about the "Girls Go Zonk!!" CD here and here Among the group's other releases was a version of "Spanish Boy"; not as hot as the Merry Clayton original (on Capitol), but probably as good as the Rubies' rendition (Vee Jay). It's now @ musica: Details are: The Kane Triplets "Spanish Boy" (Kapp 596, 1964); Written by Rudy Clark, produced by Allen Stanton, arranged by Mort Garson. Has anyone heard their first record, "Oh Ricky"? Hey la, Mick Patrick -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
