Message: 1 Date: Sun, 13 Mar 2005 22:11:09 -0000 From: Matthew Subject: Re: Rare Breed "Come On Down To My Boat" Hi Rashkovsky, The Rare Breed 45 was released sometime in later half of 1966. Doesn't really sound like The Tradewinds, more like a garage band, but guess it could've been studio cats. Think the E. Chiprut on the label is Elliot Chiprut (writer of "Simon Says"). Would certainly be interested in hearing more about your association with Kasenetz & Katz. What was it like working with those guys? Do do remember any sessions in particular? Attack Records was distributed by Premier Albums with a 1650 Broadway address. Always assumed K&K were behind the label, which had very few releases -- 2 by Rare Breed and 2 by The Music Explosion -- anyone aware of any others? The label was resurrected in 1970 for the final 1910 Fruitgum Company single "Lawdy Lawdy". Matthew -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Considering that Bish sang the end title theme he was obviously availible. Joe Nelson -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

One wonders where those records are today. Any chance you rememer a disc out around the spring/summer of '73? The hook was "I forgot to wish you a happy birthday, baby": not sure of the title or artist. WHVW here in Hyde Park was playing it at the time but the few jocks I've come in contact with who worked at the station say they weren't there at the time and don't know what I'm talking about. -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

I've mentioned this before here, but I remain convinced that, on CD at least (Bubblegum Classics, Vol. 2, on Varese Sarabande, perhaps?), there's a mix with a rather more prominent, perhaps even different, bass line than either, er, original release (I do have both the RB and the OE 45s, as well as the OE LP). But I do recall someone involved with those CD comps saying otherwise. -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Message: 6 Date: Sun, 13 Mar 2005 23:27:40 -0000 From: Matthew David Subject: Re: Rare Breed "Beg Borrow And Steal" It has been an ongoing controversy regarding whether the Rare Breed and Ohio Express issues are the same or not. Never done a side-by-side comparison myself. Here's the scoop from Barry, the Breed's keyboard player: "When it was re-re-released on CD (Bubblegum Classics, Vol 2), [the producers] put tracks over the drums and bass. However, the original BB&S which came out on Attack, and then on Cameo Parkway (in the 60's) were identical." The version used for the Bubblegum Classics CD was the stereo Cameo LP version. So the mono mixes on both 45's are the same, while the stereo mix on the Ohio Express album has a new overdubbed rhythm section.

Soul Street Program Director and afternoon drive personality Bobby Bennett is planning an afternoon of Beach Music, and has arranged for "Grammy Award Winner" / "Beach Music Hall Of Fame Member" Clifford Curry to do a live call-in interview around 5pm Central. Clifford has "Shot a Hole in my Soul Street" (Help me, Somebody! Yeah....(insert horn stabs here)) Skip Woolwine -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 8 Date: Sun, 13 Mar 2005 22:15:43 -0000 From: Joyce Subject: Tandyn Almer In a fit of curiosity I did some research on Tandyn Almer's whereabouts since the 70's, which led me to archived messages for the Spectropop group. I did a basic phone number search which seems to indicate that Tandyn has a phone in VA. Phil (who used to know him) - if you get in touch with him please let us know what's up!

The CD doesn't > even have a record label of not. "Just Believe It" was high on my Best Of list for 2004. I can't recommend this disc highly enough for Spectropoppers. Readily available from both Susan's website and (it was released on the Blue Rose label in the U.K.) Susan also has a collection of demos made in preparation for this disc available on her website, including a stellar "Don't Worry Baby."

Does anyone know if this is just myth? Shel told me the same thing...and The Kinks have always denied it.... seems rather an urban legend to me.....a lot of other things like this which were taken as gospel truths in the 1970's have since been exposed as a crock..which a little common sense wold have told us they were in the first place....more to come I'd think... later Joe -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 11 Date: Sun, 13 Mar 2005 23:33:25 -0000 From: Roy Clough Subject: Re: "Sugar & Spice" remembrances Thanks Bill, I do actually have a copy of The Cryan' Shames' version of "Sugar and Spice" - not a patch on The Searchers' version, but then again, if you looked at the link you will see I am slightly biased. -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Thanks in advance. Richard Williams -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Spradlin: > Along with the other tracks mentioned I would have love to had > Dee Dee Sharp's "Good", The Tymes "Here She Comes", Chubby > Checker's "You Just Don't Know" and "At the Discoteque" (just to > show people he made a few good records after the twist craze), > The Fabulous Flippers "I Don't Want To Cry b/w Harlem Shuffle" > (a big regional hit), The Butlers "Shop Around" (a great Mitch > Ryder sound-a-like), and The July Four's soft pop "Frightened > Little Girl". When Jody (son of Allen) Klein was in the UK for the last re issues of The Stones catalogue he was lobbied about an official re issue of the Cameo Parkway Northern soul material. If that comes about I am sure it will include your favourites. FrankM -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
