Message: 1 Date: Sat, 22 Jan 2005 11:29:03 -0000 From: S'pop Projects Subject: Patty Michaels Julio Niño: > I would like to thank Phil and John Grecco for the fabulous > article about Patty Michaels and also for playing her great > "Mrs. Johnny". I like it very much. Country Paul: > Compliments to "The Patty Michaels Story," as usual, well- > written and researched by John Grecco and Phil Milstein. > Thanks for shining a spotlight into this corner, guys. Read "Lavender Girl - The Patty Michaels Story" by John Grecco and Phil Milstein here: An excerpt: "Lavender Girl", by unknown writer Kathy Legan, intros with awesome, Drifters-ish tympani thuds, crosscut with stings of electric guitar. The lyric positions the singer's mood midway between the metaphorical meanings of the colors green and blue, thus arriving at "Lavender Girl". The melody evokes, of all things, "Oh Holy Night", but there's little Xmasy in Patty's ominous whispering of the title in response to the refrain, nor in the skipping rhythm that propels the song's anxious bridge. The net effect is two fleeting minutes of girl group ecstasy. Listen to "Lavender Girl" by Patty Michaels here: Enjoy, The S'pop Team -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
