Message: 1 Date: Fri, 01 Apr 2005 09:12:30 -0000 From: David A Young Subject: Jack Nitzsche and Terry Day Shucks, folks, I'm speechless. No, really. Between the (admittedly pleasurable) one-two punch of Martin Roberts's new "Jack and Terry" pages on this site and Mick Patrick's brilliant new Nitzsche CD comp, I'm freaking-out speechless. In a good way. For Mick and anyone else that cares, I've created a folder in the Photos section, called Terry Melcher, that contains hi-rez .jpg images of the front and back covers of the picture sleeve for this week's Record of the Week at (Lower-rez versions of both sides are included in Martin's mind- blowing essay.) Back to my "speechless" story: I got my copy of "Hearing Is Believing: The Jack Nitzsche Story 1962-1979" today. I'll be posting a more in-depth look at it, but for now allow me to offer this mini-review: Oh. My. God. Okay, that's all I can say for now, being speechless and all. Wait'll you hear this stuff all together. It's gonna knock you on your ass too, I know it. Love, David -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 2 Date: Fri, 1 Apr 2005 22:44:02 +0100 From: S'pop HQ Subject: Jack Keller and Juggy Murray, R.I.P. Sadly, two more S'pop heroes have passed away: songwriter Jack Keller and Juggy Murray, the founder of Sue Records. Jack Keller - co-author of such great songs as "Run To Him", "Venus In Blue Jeans", "Breaking In A Brand New Broken Heart", "Don't Try To Fight It Baby", "Run To Him", "Everybody's Somebody's Fool" and "Girls Grow Up Faster Than Boys" - lost his battle with cancer yesterday. Juggy Murray - who founded the Sue label in 1957, and made stars of Ike & Tina Turner, Inez & Charlie Foxx and many others - passed away in early February. He was 81 and had been suffering from Parkinson's Disease. Obituaries will be added to the S'pop Remembers section in due course. R.I.P.

Rue no more, dear chap. I notice that Simon White has posted Mary Ann's "It's Forever" to musica. It was released on Seg-Way 1001 as the flip of "I Can't Take It", her small hit in 1961. To my ears, it's the more commercial of the two sides, but what do I know? Find it right here: Hey la, Mick Patrick -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
