Message: 1 Date: Tue, 27 Sep 2005 13:44:18 -0700 (PDT) From: Max Weiner Subject: Goldstar Website Hey, got another question for you guys. Has anyone ever gotten a response from the GoldStar Studios Website concerning when they were going to be selling any of their memorabilia? I actually got an e-mail once from them saying it would be soon, but that was close to a year ago, (or so it seems). And I was also wondering if anyone was able to come up with an answer about my question concerning the Phil Spector produced "Hold me Tight", by the Treasures. My question was, when and if it ever charted, and what position it held on the charts. I had asked if it was an LA local hit on KFWB, as I don't recall hearing it in the Chicago area on either WLS or WCFL. Any help would be appreciated. max -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]------------------- Message: 2 Date: Tue, 27 Sep 2005 16:33:08 -0400 From: Phil X Milstein Subject: Brian Wilson calling ... To help raise funds for a specific, post-Katrina charity, Brian Wilson is putting his mouth where your money is. This from his website ( http://www.brianwilson.com ): > I want to personally thank Iowa Jim for his post the other night > challenging me to call him. Out of his post came a cool idea > that my wife and I want to run by you. Jim challenged me to call > him up, because he did not believe that it was me posting. He > told me if I did he would make a donation to a charity for me. I > didn't think I needed to prove anything other than at times I > like to talk with you guys. Anyway, Melinda and I were > discussing his post that night at dinner and we came up with a > great idea. So here's the cool part. As most of you know Jerry > Boyd has been collecting donations for the Hurricane victims who > have been left homeless and in shelters. He told us at this > point he has collected around $4,000. and many of you have send > items too. He is grateful, but we want to make a bigger > difference. > > Here's my challenge, for anyone who sends Jerry a donation of > $100.00 or more, I will call you personally and answer a > question that you may have, or just say hello or whatever. Also, > my wife and I will match the donation. I know that this may not > work for all of you, but anything that you can afford will help > and I will match it. > > L&M Brian P.S. Melinda is typing this for me and says hi! We > will keep this challenge going until Oct. 1 and I am available > to call you between 7:00 a.m. and 9:30 p.m. Pacific time. Wow, --Phil M. -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]------------------- Message: 3 Date: Tue, 27 Sep 2005 17:43:47 -0400 From: Phil X Milstein Subject: Hunter Hancock I just found a real neat page dedicated to the memories and photos of longtime L.A.-based R&B DJ Hunter Hancock, which I think a lot of y'all would also enjoy seeing. Hosted by the Doo-Wop Society of Southern California, the page is at http://www.electricearl.com/dws/hunter.html Note that most if not all of the photos there are thumbnails, which link to much larger and clearer versions when clicked on. The shots from his brief-lived TV show, "Rhythm And Bluesville," are especially groovy!

I've been having problems uploading stuff, so maybe someone else has it and would be willing to share? Unless it has indeed been reissued legitmately on CD, in which case, do tell.

I only recently discovered it, though, and figured > it to be a Havens original. Anyone know the story on this song? Richie Havens wrote "Run Shaker Life" (according to my BMI and ASCAP searches) and to the best of my recollection recorded it circa 1967-68. However, there's at least one other song registered to BMI with the same title.

Phil Hall: > Try this: http://koti.mbnet.fi/wdd/swan.htm What a great discography! And the root site, yields a wealth of knowledge, including more discographies of such delights as Fire/ Fury, Fortune, Del-Fi, Chess/Checker, Keen, and lots more: http://koti.mbnet.fi/wdd/ http://koti.mbnet.fi/wdd/labels.htm I've mentioned before a site of discographies of some very small independent northeastern US labels of the 50s and 60s, including some really rare ones like Wye (The Mark II, "Night Theme"), Aamco (Andy Rose, "Just Young"), Triodex (Cathy Carroll, plus James McArthur's wondrous weeper, "The In-Between Years"), Hanover/ Signature, and dozens more. Anyone else know of amazing labor-of- love reference sites like this? (I may have started a thread here - I'm sure there must be at least several.) http://www.paisleyhaze.com/NEINDEX.htm Country Paul -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]------------------- SPECTROPOP features: http://www.spectropop.com End
