I mean, could a guy be any ruder to a snoozing lady? No wonder he goes through women like some guys go through tissue paper. Then again, if she really is as dirty, no-good lovin' a woman as The Beatles suggest, maybe ol' Rod had good reason to be so rude to her after all. --Phil M. -- Cover Art Gallery: http://www.aspma.com/temp/gallery lotsa new posts: http://www.aspma.com/probe -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Message: 3 Date: Fri, 4 Mar 2005 14:47:05 EST From: Matt Spero Subject: The Cameo Parkway Story (1957-1967) THIS IS A MAJOR MUSICAL EVENT. As far as I know this is the first ever official release of any of this material on CD. And it is waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay overdue. I only hope that the stuff recorded in stereo is in stereo on this release. ABKCO is notorious for not caring about such things and using whatever is at hand. For years the only Chubbby Checker and Bobby Rydell stuff available have been re-recordings. Matt Spero Cameo Parkway Story (1957-1967) 4 CD Box Set by Cameo Parkway Story (Various Artists) Retail Price: $59.98 Coming May 3, 2005 Format: Box Set Number of Discs: 4 Genre: Pop / Rock Label: ABKCO Release Date: May 3, 2005 Item Number: ABK 9223 Item UPC: 018771922322 Description by Oldies.com: If you want to find Cameo-Parkway, don't bother looking at a street map. Instead, time warp yourself back to the late 1950s and the '60s and take a peek at the record collection of any American teenager. There you'll see them, those dazzling, ultra cool logos adorning hundreds of hits by the likes of Chubby Checker, Bobby Rydell, Dee Dee Sharp, the Orlons, the Tymes, the Dovells, Charlie Gracie and, of course, ? and the Mysterians. Cameo-Parkway was the name collectively bestowed upon a pair of record labels that dominated the independent music market for several years during that golden era of pop music. For more than a decade, a constant stream of exciting hit singles and albums emanated from the Philadelphia- based company. Cameo and Parkway recordings were ubiquitous, and treasured, wherever the latest sounds were heard. The reign of Cameo- Parkway - which ultimately became the leading independent record company in America of its time - began in 1956 when Bernie Lowe, a talented musician and songwriter, launched Cameo Records. Bernie and his writing partner, Kal Mann, had already enjoyed some measure of success, having placed their tunes with Nat "King" Cole and others. Their composition "Teddy Bear" would later become a smash for Elvis Presley. But Bernie wasn't content to work for others so he set out to make his mark as an entrepreneur. It didn't take long - one of the first releases on Cameo, "Butterfly," by the whiz-kid guitarist/singer Charlie Gracie, vaulted all the way to the top of the charts. After that, there was no stopping the Cameo-Parkway team. Lowe and Mann, along with the arranger, songwriter and bandleader/musician Dave Appell, unleashed a barrage of inventive recordings that clicked with teens over the next several years. With the invaluable promotional assistance of Dick Clark, whose Philadelphia-based American Bandstand TV dance program often booked local acts, Cameo and, before long, Parkway artists became national sensations. But it took Bobby Rydell and Chubby Checker to truly put Cameo-Parkway on the music industry map. Both were ambitious South Philly kids looking for a break; they found their dreams realized when they hooked up with Lowe, Mann and Appell. Rydell was a multitalented musician who had started out as a drummer before putting his rich vocal skills to work for him. The squeaky-clean Rydell's string of hit singles - "Kissin' Time," "We Got Love," "Wild One," "Wildwood Days," "Swingin' School" and "Volare" among them - established him as one of the most beloved teen idols in the country. Chubby Checker, meanwhile, had been a poultry shop employee with a knack for impersonations when he was called upon by Lowe and Mann to cut a musical Christmas card for Dick Clark. It was Clark's wife who gave young Ernie Evans his new name, and Clark himself who suggested that Bernie Lowe have the singer re-record an obscure dance tune called "The Twist." History was made when Chubby's recording of the song rose to number one in the nation on two different occasions, first in 1960 and then again in '62, sparking a cultural phenomenon that permanently rewrote the rules of dancing. Chubby continued to assault the charts with such Parkway hits as "Pony Time," "Let's Twist Again," "The Fly," "Limbo Rock" and "Slow Twistin'," the latter a duet with the lovely Dee Dee Sharp. Dee Dee was Cameo-Parkway's most successful female solo artist. Only 16 at the time of her first recording, she quickly rose to national prominence when she placed two records in the top 5 simultaneously in 1962. First was the collaboration with Chubby; the second was the song that would forever be associated with her name, the good-time dance smash "Mashed Potato Time." Dee Dee visited the upper reaches of the charts three subsequent times in 1962-63 alone, with "Gravy (For My Mashed Potatoes),""Ride!" and "Do The Bird." Cameo-Parkway was home to many fabulous singing groups, but three Philly based groups in particular have remained among the all-time favorites of oldies fans. The Orlons were the quartet that contributed such raucously rockin' hits as "The Wah Watusi," "South Street" and "Don't Hang Up" to the popular music lexicon. Their three wailing, soulful female voices, led by the dynamic Rosetta Hightower, were met by the deep throat of "frog-voiced" Steve Caldwell to create of the most distinctive vocal mixes around. The Dovells were a dance floor monster. The quintet was responsible for such timeless, foot-flapping jukebox favorites as "Bristol Stomp," "Hully Gully Baby" and "You Can't Sit Down." Lead singer Len Barry took his inspiration from the great R&B shouters and together with the others in the group gave Cameo-Parkway a run of riotous showpiece releases. Then there was the Tymes. The smooth ballad style of this quintet resulted in one of the most fondly remembered classics of the era, the stunning "So Much In Love. "With its minimal instrumentation, authentic seashore sound effects and the silky lead vocal of George Williams, this 1963 chart-topper has remained one of the most oft-played songs on oldies radio stations for decades. In addition to its stable of regular hitmakers, Cameo-Parkway was also the label behind a tremendous number of one-hit wonders and novelty tunes. The TV horror-show host John Zacherle, for example, frightened the heck out of the populace with his "Dinner With Drac," and the Rays' memorable doo-wop ballad "Silhouettes" was a Cameo side in the late '50s. Several years later, Candy and the Kisses' single "The 81" provided an "in" for the young producers/songwriters Kenny Gamble and Leon Huff, who would go on to revolutionize black music in the '70s. Cameo-Parkway was the first home to future giants like Patti Labelle, the Kinks and Bob Seger as well. By 1964, Bernie Lowe had begun to tire of running a record company and sold the outfit. Cameo-Parkway shifted its operations away from Philadelphia at that point but continued to make its presence felt, most notably with the 1966 number one garage-band landmark "96 Tears," by the eye-poppingly hip Michigan-based group called ? and the Mysterians. Remarkably, none of these recordings have been available in their original form for many years. But that is all about to end. ABKCO Records has mined the C-P vaults and painstakingly compiled a stunning, historical 4-CD collection that places back into circulation all of the original legendary - and never forgotten - Cameo-Parkway hits and dozens more. It would not be a stretch to say that this is one of the most eagerly awaited record label anthologies in a very long time. The Cameo-Parkway Story fills one of the most sizable gaps in many a collection and restores this innovative label to its rightful place. -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Does anyone know the significance of the name, either the "Basil Swift" part or "The Seegrams"? Perhaps the latter is meant in honor of the Canadian whisky company, which, coincidentally, went on to own Warner Brothers Records for a while, before selling out to Vivendi (or however that went). Those unfamiliar with the Basil Swift record can hear both "Farmer's Daughter" as well as its flipside instro "Shambles," at my Probe site (URL below). --Phil M. -- Cover Art Gallery: http://www.aspma.com/temp/gallery lotsa new posts: http://www.aspma.com/probe -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

I think your research must have pulled up the rules for Canadian Television. There is no way radio stations were required to play 55 % Canadian content from 1962 onwards. I do believe what I sent previously is a close approximation of the truth. The "prime-time" mentioned above is the giveaway that these are TV rules. The radio regulation was based on day time hours which run from 6 am to midnight. The prime time in radio has changed over the years to include the morning and afternoon drive slots. That sadly is the main role for radio today. Javed -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 14 Date: Fri, 04 Mar 2005 22:19:14 -0500 From: Country Paul Subject: Correction; road bands; Cameo Parkway CDs; airchecks First, a correction: in googling "Sittin' In The Balcony," a website identified the co-composer as Jerry Capehart, saying he co-wrote it with singer Eddie Cochran. However, I appear to have been misinformed (and if I can find it again, I'll pass along the URL). That team did write "Summertime Blues," but John D. Loudermilk properly gets the credit for "Balcony." Thus, I sit corrected, under the dunce cap, in the very last row. Stew Epstein on "Road Bands": > [B]ack in 1969, I was told by many rock band managers/agents that > the artists, at least on a group's first hit and sometimes on all > hof their its, were studio musicians who craked all out kinds of > songs, and that if a song become a hit, then they looked for > people to become the band...sometimes this put-together band was > also called "the road band"...that is, there was a recording > studio group, and then another group that was the band "on the > road" ( during tours).... One one of Duane Eddy's early albums, two groups of Rebels are identified: one, the studio band, and the other, the "Travelling Rebels." I seem to remember a couple of names overlapped.

An addition: Loudermilk recently told me that The Browns got The Three Bells from him. "I used to do The Three Bells as well as the Old Lamplighter as an artist.

Message: 19 Date: Sat, 5 Mar 2005 07:38:45 -0600 From: Barry Margolis Subject: Re: Rare Breed Here's what I've found about The Rare Breed: CD: THE RARE BREED SUPER "K" COLLECTION (Collectables Col-0580) 1994. 45: Beg, Borrow And Steal/ Jeri's Theme (Attack AR-1401) 1966. Still somewhat of a mystery group, this New York or New Jersey band, discovered by producers Jeffrey Katz and Jerry Kasenetz. The Kasenetz Katz Singing Orchestral Circus - later to be acknowledged as two of the originator's of "bubblegum" music - was presented as an Ohio group since it was beleived at the time easier to break a record out of the Midwest. After recording the instantly likeable Louie Louie ripoff Beg, Borrow and Steal, the band supposedly grew reluctant in giving any more control to Katz and Kasenetz, and were shortly thereafter dismissed by the producers - but not before leaving behind at least nine additional songs, all included on the Collectables release. Aside from Beg, Borrow and Steal (reportedly, Katz and Kasenetz would later take a true Ohio group, Sir Timothy and the Royals, and re-release the exact same single under the band's new moniker, The Ohio Express, the CD includes a cover of The Grodes' I Won't Be There, the garage-y Where Are You Going To, and two Monkees songs: Bad Girl and City Girl. Beg, Borrow and Steal has been comped on Rhino Record's 1998 Nuggets CD box set. -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Scots band Nazareth owe their Canadian success to the above. Well that and their own performing talents and Joni Mitchell's "This Flight Tonight". I believe they are still a reasonable draw in certainmn patrts of Canada. A school chum became one of the many Scots emigrees to Canada and he sent me couple of records back in including Opportunity by the Mandala which according to a recent e mail form Airchex was in the Vancouver chart for this week in 1967. I don't know what happenned to the rest of the band but I have a solo single by Domenic Troiano which I believe was played on the modern side of the Northern soul scene. I think he joined the James Gang at some point. FrankM -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
