Message: 1 Date: Thu, 27 Jan 2005 00:20:01 -0000 From: Various Subject: Re: phantom song challenge A couple of responses to Rob Pingel's request for a song ID: > Surely some S'popper who knows every song every recorded > can help. My phantom record was released sometime between > 1963-66. It starts off with a very stark sounding verse. ... Not a hard one for Chicagoans. From spring 1966, it's "Don't You Know" by Keith Everett on Temp-Ting label. The song made WLS' Top 10 -- pretty good for a local which didn't hit nationally. Clark ----------------------------------------------------------------- Someone must've gotten this already; if not: 1966, Keith Everett, "Don't You Know" -- big WCFL spin.

Message: 2 Date: Fri, 28 Jan 2005 15:25:17 -0000 From: Julio Niño Subject: "Last Night In My Daddy's Arms" Hola Everybody. I want to thank David A. Young for playing in musica the wonderful ode to incest "Last Night In My Daddy´s Arms" by Kerri Downs. I love it. This afternoon I was listening to it with headphones and ( even though I tried to hold it in) I couldn't help laughing loudly several times. The people around looked disapprovingly at me. I'm going to think of pop songs about incest, like Serge Gainsbourg's " Lemon Incest" or the calypso "Shame and Scandal in the Family" (I like very much the French version by Les Surfs). Another song in which I've always perceived an incestuous perfume (I know that many people would urge me to visit a psychiatrist or even an exorcist when I say that) is "Di Papa", (say, daddy) by Spanish crooner José Guardiola with his little sister (around four or five then) Rosa Maria. It's a version of the French song "Dis, Papa" that sounds to me madly camp and tortuous. I don't know if there are any versions of the song in English. I´m going to take a siesta. Chao. Julio Niño. -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 3 Date: Fri, 28 Jan 2005 16:31:48 -0000 From: Donny H. Subject: The (West Coast) Chiffons The Reprise Chiffons also sound like a different group from the Big Deal Chiffons, which would mean three different groups. Anyone know for sure? ----------------------------------------------------------------- Admin Note: This subject has been discussed previously on S'pop. Members are recommended to use the Spectrosearch facility to read more about the West Coast Chiffons (as opposed to the "He's So Fine" group).

I recall an instrumental version, in 5/4, being played on LGFJ (L.A.) in '63. Does anyone know anything about this? gem -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 5 Date: Thu, 27 Jan 2005 18:55:09 -0800 (PST) From: Larry Bromley Subject: Ray Peterson, R.I.P. Last night I, like another group member, could not find news about Ray Peterson. Just now, I searched on YAHOO! and found a number of news articles, so I guess that it waasn't deemed important enough by any on-line servies, since the articles I found were from newspapers. So now we have the info we want. ===== Age is a number that tells how long you have lived in this world, not how to live in it.

Message: 7 Date: Fri, 28 Jan 2005 08:19:29 +0000 From: Frank Murphy Subject: At The club of Vegas Previously: > What he REALLY needed was The High Keys' "Que Sera Sera," KILLER > party soul with Latin trappings -- think maybe The Coasters' "Down > At The Club" on a tequila bender -- and Enoch Light & The Command > All-Stars' "Perhaps Perhaps Perhaps" (first wedding I ever DJed, I > was told to play whatever I wanted, and this of all things was what > finally got everyone on the floor). Okay, now I'll be digging for > killer Doris Day covers. I play the mono version of At The Club by The Drifters because the block of wood they hit is prominent in the mix as compared to the album. I must print a list of other covers played at Vegas. Thanks to Mark Lamarr ( I looked out Major Harris doing like a rolling Stone in a very Tom Jones Stylee. My DJ colleague Dino Martini plays Salena Jones' version of Right Now which he says is rare. And Frankie Sumatra has a rarish mix of Venus by Tom Jones (not the one from the Tom album). I'm doing the Vegas radio show agiain this Saturday at noon on once I've recovered from the tsunami fund raiser I did last night. It over ran of course after featuring Middle of The Road, Chris Andrews, The Blue Nile, Nazareth, Marmalade and a number of local acts. More detail later.

Message: 8 Date: Fri, 28 Jan 2005 12:54:05 -0500 From: Country Paul Subject: "Dick Fox's Golden Boys" FYI, "Dick Fox's Golden Boys" - Frankie Avalon, Fabian and Bobby Rydell - are playing at the Trump 29 Casino in San Diego, CA, March 3rd. This means they're probably on tour at various other venues as well. (I know this because I do the voice-overs for Trump 29, and this is today's copy!)

Message: 9 Date: Fri, 28 Jan 2005 18:26:43 -0000 From: Jim Subject: Hawaiian "Talking" Guitars Hope someone can point me to a US song which was a hit in Australia (and probably elsewhere) around 1963..its catchy gimmick was "talking" guitars, where the "vocals" were played on the strings. Haven't heard it since then and since I can't remember the artist or the song's title I'm unable to locate it. It was a Hawaiian- flavored love song..any ideas? (I'm pretty sure neither McGarrett or Don Ho were involved in this one.) Jim -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

I also like the follow-up, "You Talk About Love", with the instrumental break done on drums. gem -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 11 Date: Fri, 28 Jan 2005 13:08:44 -0500 From: Joe Nelson Subject: Re: Antoinette Scott Swanson: > She recorded some more singles for Piccadilly but I only know of > sporadic song titles: "Why Don't I Run Away From You," "Lullaby Of > Love" and "I'm For You". "Lullaby of Love"? As in the old Poppies hit (an obvious ripoff of "A Lover's Concerto")? Joe Nelson -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 12 Date: Fri, 28 Jan 2005 10:45:58 -0800 (PST) From: Max Weiner Subject: A Vogues Question Got a question about the Vogues' "Five O'Clock World". I have two versions of this song, one with a string section in the back and one without. Personally, I think the strings add something to this song, but my question is which version actually was released first? Were the strings added later, or were they on first, then subsequently deleted. And, this may sound like an odd question, but can anyone out there tell me how they came up with, or who came up with that very unusual vocal treatment that Bill Burkette gives at the end of each chorus? I never heard it before or since on any recording? Thanks much in advance, folks max -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
