Message: 1 Date: Mon, 18 Jul 2005 00:53:17 -0000 From: Brent Cash Subject: Proof Of The Puddin' During the recent discussion re: Jimmie Haskell's Capitol arrangements, "Adonis" came up as one of the great ones. Joop verified that it was written by George Goehring and Ed Warren. Rob Pingel and Gary Myers thought it should've been a hit and that the writers must have been frustrated by all the cover versions with no chart success. Well, there is one George Goehring song that probably couldn't have been a big hit, yet which I love for its audacity. I posted about it here (message #27724; digest # 1823), and a nice e-mail recently about that from a lady named Patty Glasson, which, with her permission, I'm passing along for your reading: > My husband (Mike Moody) was in Proof Of The Puddin', and we have just > recently been able to find a recording of "Flying High"/"Color Wheel." > None of the band members had a copy and hadn't heard the recording in > years.

Sure, most of the words are there, and so is the melody, but by changing "Catherine's getting up" to "now you're getting up", the whole meaning is altered, and both the bark and the bite of the original have disappeared. If Cassidy had covered "The Last Time I Saw Jacqueline" as well, I'm betting her picture would have been the bookmark in his 16 Magazine, not his Hemingway. Not that there's anything wrong with that. I just happen to like both bark and bite with my Saussy. I have several questions for Tupper Saussy, but do not wish to be greedy. Skip, if you see this, I'll limit myself to three, and sincerely hope that you can pass these on for me: 1. Who is the female vocalist on "The New Life Out There" and "Morning Girl Later"? 2. Were you aware of Jimmy Webb's apocalyptic and ambitious "The Yard Went On Forever", and was it an influence on what you were writing for the Neon Philharmonic? 3. What are the lyrics after "And I'll think about the hours that we spent among the flowers", during the middle section of "Brilliant Colors"? Speaking of that middle section, I had my own "Morning Girl" mega-mix that I put together at my college radio station. The original "Morning Girl" started it off, fading into that "Brilliant Colors" middle (the "when she went away, it was as though she died" part) and concluding with "Morning Girl, Later". Unfortunately the tape of this mix (on an old 1970s radio cart) did not survive. When it went away, it was as though it died.

Quite rare, I'd say.

Are there a lot of male versions of this decidedly female song? In my mind I can't hear Bobby Rydell singing this, but it must have been an attempt to capitalize on the MOR success that Barbra Streisand (whose version unfortunately overshadowed Sandy Stewart's and Kitty Kallen's wonderful, heartbreaking renditions) had with the tune.

Kathy Larkin recorded a version on Etiwanda 101, which uses the very same backing tracks as the Terri Dean version. However, it was titled "Johnny (Adonis)" and only gives credit to Goehring as the writer. The opening lyric of "Johnny, Johnny is a lover" is different, too, but the rest is basically the same.

Don't know if any LA folk remember this one, I don't. When checking out my KFWB LA charts in the dawning of the 60's surf era, a baseball song won the short term battle with the surfer song. The month "Surfin' Safari" became the BBoys first #1 in LA (September 1, 1962), another surf song hit the KFWB top 40 chart, "Bustin Surfboards" by the Tornadoes debuting at #40 on September 29. The same week much higher up, we saw "The Dodger Song" by Danny Kaye debut at an amazingly high #17! It peaked at #6 the next week and dipped to #11 on October 13, dropping off the next week! Quite a 3 week run. A quick check of google unveils the reason for the quick rise and decline of the record. On September 29, when the song debuted, the Los Angeles Dodgers had just won their 100th game of the new 162 game season. Optimism was obviously high for the World Series. As the song jumped to #6, on 10/3/62, the Dodgers played their last game of the season (David Geddes, are you listening?). Finishing with 102 wins was reason to celebrate, one would think. That last game was a loss to their west coast rivals, the San Francisco Giants. It was the rubber game that would break the tie for the National League lead and clinch the title for the 103 win Giants! The fans packed in "The Dodger Song" and that was the end of the Danny Kaye hit. As fate would have it, the hated Dodger rivals, the Giants, would meet their own fate the same week as "The Dodger Song", as they were defeated in game 7 of the World Series by the Yankees on 10/16/62. Oh yeah, "Bustin' Surfboards" would go on to top "The Dodger Song", reaching #2 on 10/27/62 with a long chart run. "And now you know the rest of the story!"

Now I'm wondering if anyone can help with a little information. I was recently sent an mp3 of "The Hero" by Bernadette Carroll. I absolutely love it but I'm having trouble finding out anything about Bernadette or the song. I know Bernadette released a few US singles and teamed up with Denise Ferri and Peggy Santiglia shortly they were in The Delicates to do backing work, but I don't know who they backed or whether she ever reappeared anywhere else. Any info would be appreciated!

One of our regulars, Tony Moon, who was in Dante and the Evergreens, was there. I seem to have lost his phone number and email, but should see him at another meeting in a couple of months. If you would send me any questions about Dante etc I will ask him. It would probably be smart to send them around early sept. so I won't forget (the mind can be a steel siv at times).

I saw the show at yesterday's matinee. Darlene was fantastic! She really let loose and wowed the audience. After the show, she graciously signed autographs and has pictures taken with her fans outside the stage door. Herb, you asked about Kathy Brier. She was not the original Tracy. She was played by Marissa Jaret Winokur, who won a Tony award for the role, and by the way, she has returned to the show for the time being. Anyone who can, go see Darlene!! Also, Darlene will be celebrating her birthday next Tuesday, July 26th. It would be great if we all sent her a birthday card c/o the theatre.

Was blown away the first time I listened. One of the most amazing and unusual Broadway soundtracks ever released. Sounds as good today as it did in the late 60's. Disagree strongly with the gentleman who doesn't think singing was Jerry Orbach's forte. He could sing the phone book. These songs are tough, and his performance is practically seamless. The nature of his character called for a more "ordinary guy" type of delivery. You might want to make a comparison with his other work, e.g. "The Fantastics", to see what I mean. Or, try belting out "Half As Big As Life" without losing your way within a verse or two. Theatre critic of the New York Times, Clive Barnes, wrote in his glowing December 2, 1968 review, ".....the kind of show where you feel more in the mood to send it a congratulatory telegram than write a review. The cast was virtually perfect. Mr. Orbach has the kind of wrists that look as though they are about to lose their hands, and the kind of neck that seems to be on nodding acquaintanceship with his head. He gangles. He also sings most effectively, dances most occasionally, and acts with an engaging and perfectly controlled sense of desparation."

In my mind "Try To Remember" is his and his alone - his signature song. To Bacharach and David - I have always been an admirer of "Lost Horizon". As a matter of fact I have tried to find a way to get permission for an amateur stage presentation of it in my area, actually writing to the major Musical Theatre leasing companies for a heads-up. To this point none have responded. I enjoy staging the "less than successful" shows. I learn a lot from them and carry a great deal of respect for them. So far I have done stage adaptations of Liza's Minnelli's tv musical "The Dangerous Christmas of Red Riding Hood" and a stage version of Smokerises's "The Surival of St. Joan". I just received permission from the Rodgers and Hammerstein Library to stage the first amateur production of the 1967 tv musical "Androcles And The Lion" and would love to stage "Lost Horizon" next year. Anyone know how I might be able to track down permission. Even Rod McKuen has responded regarding his "Black Eagle" double concept album but a contact for "Lost Horizon" eludes. This show needs a stage adaptation.

Thanks for that one, Mick -- a very nice version, of a song I usually detest. I have to assume the producer is the same Tony Alamo as the Western clothing designer-turned-cult guru (nee Bernie Lazar Hoffman), as I know he was also a pop singer at various stages along his crooked path. For more info on this notorious figure, just Google and click. He's still out there. --Phil M. -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]------------------- Message: 22 Date: Tue, 19 Jul 2005 12:35:21 -0400 From: Country Paul Subject: Re: Welcome to Spectropop Message Digest #2000. >From the Team: > Welcome to Spectropop Message Digest #2000.

Quite rare, I'd say. True enough, and we haven't seen the full track listing yet, but it is still availablke elsewhere. The Whyte Boots are also mentioned, but I expect we'll be hearing "Nightmare" - available on the Growin' Up Too Fast CD. In my opinion, if something's available elsewhere that's still in print, it's not really rare or lost anymore. I'd be much more interested in stuff that has either yet to make it to CD or songs that have never been reissued from their original release. There are only so many of these types of releases and it would be a shame if they take a well-worn path. It's too much to expect tonnes of previously unreleased material, but what disappoints me are collections that simply collect songs available elsewhere, or only offer one or two new treasures in addition to the regular best of material (Motown, until recent years, was famous for this). I certainly hope Rhino has gone the route of the British specialty labels. I was excited to see that out of 120 songs, 107 artists are represented. I just hope they give us some surprises. I'll buy it anyway, but I'd be much happier about paying $65 for more than one or two true rarities. I'm excited to see what Sheila Bergel has come up with for liner notes, though. I sometimes get more pleasure out of the liner notes on these comps then the tunes. And hopefully it will sell well enough to convince them to do another collection al la the Doo-Wop box.

British blue-eyed soulster Chris Farlowe made a good stab at My Colouring Book in his 1960's album 14 Things To Think About. The song suits his ballad style though he is better known for uptempo numbers.
