Message: 1 Date: Sun, 21 Aug 2005 17:16:11 -0000 From: Roberto Subject: John Carter song - Midnight Girl The recent messages about John Carter sent me browsing among my records, where I found an Italian version of a nice if unexceptional Carter-Stephens song called Midnight Girl. The original came out in 1966 in England, and was sung by one Paul Craig, of whom I know nothing. I googled a bit but it seemms there's nothing about him, not even a record for sale or a compilation including this song. Can anybody help me with some info (and maybe an mp3)? thanks, Roberto -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]------------------- Message: 2 Date: Sun, 21 Aug 2005 19:11:37 +0100 From: Mick Patrick Subject: Tommy Roe sings Leiber & Stoller Are there any Tommy Roe fans/experts out there? Must be. For quite a while I've been trying to track down Tommy's recording of the Leiber & Stoller composition "The Gunfighter", released on ABC Paramount 10696 in 1965 . . . without success. Is this track available on CD? If so, which one/s please? If not, if someone has the 45, maybe they could post it to musica for us all to listen to. Also, are there any other versions of this song? Thanks in advance.

Any info on her would be greatly appreciated. Only a tiny piece of information Harold, I am afraid, but it may throw some light on something. Anne-Marie recorded four tracks for MGM. New York City April 1 1966 100000 Go Down By The Water (unissued) 100001 The Petal Song (unissued) 100002 Diary (MGM K13534) 100003 You Won't Be Sorry Baby (MGM K13534) Peter Richmond -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]------------------- Message: 4 Date: Sun, 21 Aug 2005 16:58:39 -0700 (PDT) From: Irving Snodgrass Subject: Re: Bob Crewe and Oliver Rob wrote: > All this talk about Bob Crewe......does anyone have any stories or > inside info on Oliver or the Oliver/Crewe pairing? Bob produced his > first 2 LP's. I graduated from the University of North Carolina's Dept. of Radio- TV-Motion Pictures with William Oliver Swofford in 1967. Bill sang with a group called the Virginians while at UNC. I recall seeing them open for the Beach Boys in spring 1966 at a concert at Duke University's field house. Bill hailed from North Wilkesboro, NC I believe. I was a dj at WSSB 1490 Durham, NC in 1966-67 and recall playing the Virginians' 45 "A Piece Of Cewllophane." I still have a copy.

ASCAP credits "The Gunfighter" to Leiber, Stoller and Billy Edd Wheeler. There's a version by Jim Ed Brown on the 1967 LP "Gems By Jim" (RCA Victor LSP-3853). Sorry, I don't have either record.

Here's a (probably partial) discography: Dream Boy/High Heel Shoes (Warwick 605, 1960) Dear Teddy/(I Know) Your Heart's Not Made Of Wood (Epic 9465, 1961) Nothing Is Forever/I Shouldn't Be Kissing You (Reprise 20083, 1962) Always A Bridesmaid/Davey (ABC 10418, 1963) Runaround/There Must Be A Reason (Jubilee 5490, 1964) I have the Jubilee and MGM 45s, which do sound like the same girl. I seem to recall reading somewhere that the Ann Marie on Jubilee was aged 12 at the time. She sounds it - in a good way.
