Message: 1 Date: Mon, 7 Feb 2005 21:03:31 +0000 From: Richard Williams Subject: Re: Jim Capaldi Just got back from Jim Capaldi's funeral at All Saints' parish church, Marlow. Very well attended, with good representation of people who were signed to or worked at or with Island Records in the '60s and '70s, including the perennially underrated Jess Roden (now a graphic designer, hasn't sung in four years), Mike Kellie of Spooky Tooth (back in Birmingham, "putting a little band together"), Simon Kirke of Free, who flew in from NY to give a eulogy, and Joe Boyd. Halfway through, Steve Winwood got up and sat at a piano and sang a short, quiet medley: one perfect verse each of "The Low Spark Of High-Heeled Boys", "Dear Mr Fantasy" and "40,000 Headmen". To say the spine of everyone present tingled would be an understatement -- it was electrifying. As it was when the recording of "Walking In The Wind" was played as the congregation left. Myself, I veer towards the New Orleans view of funerals: make them a good send-off, and take the chance to see people you haven't met in years. This was one of those.

These sessions were recorded at Mirasound in NYC by me in the latter part of the '60s, on both 8- and 16-track Ampex recorders. Mirasound no longer exists.

I was told by several record folks that my single of Rocky was the biggest single to come out of Nashville in 1975. Whether that's true, I hope so. What a braggart I am!

I don't have that one, but I see that it's readily available on CD. That "Ruby, Don't Take Your Love to Town" alone ('s great for soundclips) ... andif I'm reading correctly, his "Made In U.S.A." album was mostly recorded in Nashville as well. I still prefer "L'Epopee du Rock" and his cover of "Satisfaction." For the record, there's also his "De Londres Memphis" (1967), recorded, respectively, at Pye and Muscle Shoals. -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

I first found out about it two years ago when I found two brand-new audition copies (mono, of course) from a couple day's search through the 45 bins at Canterbury Records in Pasadena. Well worth the effort! Chris -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

I was thinking more along the lines of "Nashville Klutz". Here's where I am so far. Contributions from the list are welcome. "There's 157 orthopedic surgeons in Nashville And if you stub your toe along the Music Row You gonna need you some cashville Because it costs a lot to pay an orthopedic surgeon in Nashville And if the label don't pick up the bill Then I don't know how the hell I will."

Buzz Cason's "Nashville In The Summertime" was issued on Elf (90032) around August 1969. The other side (which I think was the A-side) was "Adam And Eve."

Message: 10 Date: Wed, 09 Feb 2005 08:05:27 -0000 From: Billy G Spradlin Subject: Mamie Van Doren comes to musica I posted Mamie Van Doren's "The Boy Catcher's Theme" to musica. Audio Fidelity AF 133 -- from the sound (lots of Herb Alpert-inspired horn charts) I'd say it's from 1966 or '67. Anyone have info about this 45? Any follow-ups or an LP from the same label?

The A-side, "Oo Koo > Ka Boo," has Mann-Apell as the writers; the flip, "He's Braggin'", > lists Jackson-Josephs. Like most Cameo/Parway acts of the time, they also "borrowed" each others' songs for album tracks. Chubby did "Oo-Kook-A-Boo" on his "Beach Party" LP, and The Orlons also recorded "He's Braggin," which I have on a Wyncote LP called "Dance A Go-Go With The Stars".

It was then leased to Moonglow Records, who released it on Moonglow 5007. The original Lola matrix numbers are still in the deadwax, although they have a line through them. There are no producer or arranger credits on the label. The delta matrix number in the deadwax, 59294, indicates that it was released in November 1965. I don't have the single itself but would really like to hear it as it's often said to be The Righteous Brothers. Someone contacted me on my website a while back who was totally convinced it was them, but the person never did send a recording of the tracks, so I am still none the wiser.

Bill, I hope I don't appear to be nit-picking but it was actually "Soul And Inspiration". Some of you may already be aware that The Righteous Brothers are to be the next subject for movie producer Arthur Friedman, who has optioned feature rights from Bill Medley and David Cohen, The Righteous Brothers' manager.
