Still: > Symon (or Simon?) & Pi - "Sha La La La Lee" > Samantha Jones - "I Deserve It" > The Guilloteens - "I Don't Believe" Margaret, Funny you should mention that particular Guilloteens track in this context ! Here's what Louis Paul wrote to me a while ago (as told to his wife who works the computer)... Spector never finished I Don't Believe. He wouldn't even speak to the guys after Williams signed them with HBR. He wasted several months working with them trying to work out a contract and when the Righteous Brothers single hit he had to stop and finish and album with them. He said he would work out a deal with Williams for them as soon as he finished. Williams wouldn't wait. Louis says they started out working in a state of the art studio with 32 channels with Phil Spector and wound up recording live in a cartoon studio for Yogi Bear. You can hear a tiny bit of the Spector version. The beginning of the song was one part they had worked out. Louis used it for the HBR recording.

Someone of my acquaintance in the know about all things Georgie Fame can neither confirm nor deny, by the way, but expresses his doubt nonetheless. Thanks! -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Nita released 2 more 45s after 'Something To Give' and 'Untrue, Unfaithful', The Daddy Christmas Song/Our Love Was Meant To Be (Piccadilly 7N 35307), and Misty Blue/Come Around (Piccadilly 7N 35384) - I have the a copy of the last 45, however I don't recall it being anywhere near as good as her first two 45s. I'll have another listen though. I actually have 'Untrue, Unfaithul' on 45, and would love to find a copy of 'Somthing To Give'... hopefully we'll both be lucky soon!

The title of the set is ONE KISS CAN LEAD TO ANOTHER: GIRL GROUP SOUNDS, LOST & FOUND. Apparently has 120 songs from 107 artists over 4 CD's. But............... As yet there is no link on Rhino's web page. I have no idea what the track list may be....... .......but I'm getting very excited.
