Love that song! I've even done it on gigs a couple of times, and it was finding that record (at Wenzel's Music Town in Downey) in the early 70's that got me into the record collecting world. gem -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

And back in those days, > the radio stations I listened to didn't play LP cuts!! Dave- I stand corrected. Read on. Skip Woolwine Tupper Saussy says: "I believe No One was released as a 45. Can't recall the flip side, unless it was maybe You Lied, and I don't remember any other single releases, unless maybe Dresden. When the album came out Warners was working hard on the Doobie brothers, I think, plus Don and I by that time had decided to be purely a studio thing. Tupper" NB: On Ebay, there are some Neon Philharmonic 45s for sale. None are from the NP's second album. In addition to Morning Girl, there are a couple of singles that never appeared on any album, until the Rhino Handmade compilation release of last year. -- Skip -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Thanks for any suggestions. Well! I may be striking out or batting 1000 on this one, but all I can think of if you don't have them already are: Out of Left Field--Percy Sledge Last Game of the Season--David Geddes (Love Is Like A) Baseball Game--The Intruders: great R&B from Philly Peanuts--Little Joe & The Thrillers Then of course there's the old standby, Who's On 1st? by Abbott & Costello, which I've no doubt you've already placed in your "lineup".

Message: 9 Date: Mon, 11 Jul 2005 00:40:26 -0400 From: Country Paul Subject: Henry Stone; Robert Mosely; Bobby Darin; Carson Parks; dueling "Tomorrows"; Martin's comment Henry Stone: > Henry Stone has once again been profiled in a major entertainment > publication. This time he has a large feature in Celebrity Access - > http://www.celebrityaccess.com/news/profile.html?id=%5 You've certainly swum with the big fish, Henry; thanks for sharing the info. Roy Clough: > I'm trying to find the original version of "Goodbye my love", a > big hit for The Searchers in the UK, it was called "Goodbye my > lover goodbye" and was by Robert Mosely I think. Anyone have it? If no one else has responded to you, please e-mail me off-list. No mp3, but I do have the 45 which I could dub. Joe Nelson refers to Phil Milstein's excellent "Probe" site, http://www.philxmilstein.com , and mentions the Bobby Darin versions of John Sebastian's and Tim Hardin's songs. In my opinion, this is my favorite Darin period; he definitely "got" both writers. There's also an earlier track - "Lost Love," the flip of the big hit "Queen Of The Hop" - which previews Darin's masterful touch with folky/softer sounds, and is one of my all-time favorites by him. Also at Probe, thanks, Phil, for posting Carson & Gaile's original "Somethin' Stupid," always my favorite version of the song since first listen. Don't beat me up for it; it's just my opinion! I might suggest, though, checking out and downloading what you need from the Carson Parks website itself, http://www.ccarsonparks.com/carson.htm , as I imagine his earthly departure predicts the same fate for this apparently self-administered site.) Finally got a chance to listen to and compare April Young's and Cathy Carroll's "This Time Tomorrow" playing at musica. My vote goes to Ms. Carroll; in her favor: the big drums, more command in her voice, the richer sound. Again, just my opinion. Thanks for the opportunity to compare. Martin Roberts: > Long overdue, but I'm sure Country Paul will forgive me for > catching up so late! Just wanted to say how much I enjoyed Paul's > interview with Denny, presented by Spectropop: > http://www.spectropop.com/DennyReed/index.htm > Thanks also to the folks who posted some of his songs to musica. Thank you too, Martin; as a chronic "catcher-upper" I fully understand the delay! And I also appreciate the plays to musica, both Denny's and the others; my mp3 conversion "facility" is still not quite ready, and the playing of "No One Cares" was the one I would have done. More to come.... Country Paul -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

I hadn't heard the Mary Wells track before the sample herein; it's a treat. Same for the Ruby & The Romantics sample. I'm curious: are there any Paris Sisters/Teddy Bears-era-styled tracks aboard? > Recently @ S'pop > Three Hours At Gold Star > Recording The Beau Brummels > by Al Hazan > http://www.spectropop.com/BeauBrummels/index.htm The ones that got away.... I love the Beau Brummels' Autumn output; this is far too under-rated a group. Artie Wayne: > From time to time [The Crests] would use my friend, Chuck Foote, > who was in "The Wild Ones", as an alternate. Artie, you have mentioned the artist responsible for one of my favorite 45s of the early 60s, "Running Out of Kisses" (Soncraft 401, which made it to at least #87 in CashBox during a 5-week run starting in December, 1961), which got good aireplay in New York. I also found another 45 by him: I Stopped Asking/I'd Do It all Over Again" (20th Century Fox, release date unknown). Mostly, however, a Google search reveals only some 45s for sale, and several other people who share his name. Any info about him, please? (I put out this same request in May, 2004, and Artie, you're the closest source who has emerged so far.) By the way, there are early photos of The Crests which show a non- white female member, but I know nothing for certain about her (or if, therefore, there's a relationship to Luther Vandross, although I've heard that mentioned elsewhere).

Thanks for any suggestions. Charles Ulrich recommended some renditions of: > Take Me Out To The Ballgame Better yet, blast 'em with the girl group version, currently playing at musica for your delectation: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/spectropop/files/musica/ Details are: The Mark-ettes "Take Me Out To The Ball Game" (Big 20 Record Corp. 1111, c. 1963); written by Jack Norworth and Albert Von Tilzer; a Tony "Mark" Alamo Production. Hey la. I love this rather crude record because it reminds me of Baby Jane & the Rockabyes. Maybe it's them in disguise, who knows? And here are some more versions of the same song: ANDREWS SISTERS - DECCA 24605 1949 BILL HEYER - EPIC 9050 1954 BOBBY GREGG - EPIC 9601 1963 BUNKER HILLBILLIES - SEVILLE 106 1960 CHARLOTTE BOYS CHOIR - RCA 47-3985 1950 CHUCK MAHAFFEY - PANORAMA 35 DON ELLIOT - SAVOY 1103 1953 GEORGE WRIGHT - KING 15039 1950 H.B.

Message: 13 Date: Sun, 10 Jul 2005 21:53:30 -0700 (PDT) From: Larry Bromley Subject: Re: Baseball songs Interesting list of b-ball tunes. If they are not considered too recent, then I submit John Fogerty's "Centerfield", and Bruce Springsteen's "Glory Days', since he sings about an old fried who "could throw that speedball by you, make you look just like a fool." I noticed the two Cashman songs on the list. Personally, I love "Talkin' Baseball", which was co-written by a member of the Detroit Tigers, I think. Also, as I recall, there was an entire album with versions of the original song with lyrics for each Major league team in existence at the time. BTW, is this Cashman the one co-wrote pop hits as part of the Cashman-West team? Age is a number that tells how long you have lived in this world, not how to live in it. Larry Bromley good day! -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Message: 15 Date: Mon, 11 Jul 2005 06:06:02 -0500 From: Dan Hughes Subject: Re: Baseball songs Bob, thanks -- "Last Game Of The Season" is a football song: "But the boy's not just a hero He's strictly second team Tho he runs each night for touchdowns In his father's sweetest dreams...." Come to think of it, there aren't too many football songs out there. Larry, yes, same Terry Cashman. He wrote songs for most of the major league teams (I believe he skipped a couple of them), but some of the songs covered two or three teams in one fell swoop. And they're already using "Glory Days" and "Centerfield." Mick, thanks for the upload. The lists people have posted are great, but I don't have access to most of these songs unless someone posts them to musica or e-mails them to me. One more -- does anyone know a barbershop quartet version of "Take Me Out To The Ball Game," in which the singers sing the right words, but they get ahead of themselves and run out of lyrics before the music is done? A very funny effect; Larry King used to play it on his overnight radio show. Thanks folks, ---Dan -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

I'd love to hear Clydie King's "He Always Comes Back To Me." Have you considered doing a volume of faithful covers of Spector tracks, or is that outside the guidelines of the project?
