Message: 1 Date: Fri, 25 Mar 2005 16:00:53 -0000 From: Mick Patrick Subject: Debra Swisher stomps on the Beach Boys James Moniz: > Anyone have any info on Debra Swisher? I really like her song > "You're So Good to Me." All I know is that it was released on > Boom Records in 1966. Did she record any others? Previously, Debbie had been a member of the Pixies Three. Later, she shared with Bernadette Carroll the role of lead singer of the Angels. Have you searched for Debra's name in the S'pop archives? I guess not, so I've done it for you. Just click here: A similar S'pop search for the Pixies Three throws up the following: For future reference, the Spectrosearch facility can be found at the homepage, on the left, at the top of the sidebar menu: Find a great interview with the Pixies Three at Cha Cha Charming: The group also have their own chapter in John Clemente's book, Girl Groups: Fabulous Females That Rocked The World. More info about the book here: Plus, the Pixies Three have their own website: I've posted the track you mention to musica for all to hear: Details are: Debra Swisher "You're So Good To Me" (Boom 60,001, 1966) Written by Brian Wilson; arranged and conducted by Bassett Hand; produced by Feldman-Goldstein-Gottehrer. It's a subtle treatment, NOT! The B-side is a version of the Angels' "Thank You And Goodnight". Would anyone care to hear it?

Buzz's book, "Living The Rocknroll Dream," is a helluvalotta fun -- he's not only seen and done it all and lived to tell about it, he tells it so engagingly well. Highly recommended from this corner! --Phil M. -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

That would have been a concept: a cheapo knockoff cover > record that actually makes a splash big enough to make it into > the major leagues. Nope, no RECORDS on the HIT label ever charted, but at least one song, "Sure Gonna Miss Her", was heard and picked up by Snuff Garret for Gary Lewis.
