Peter & Gordon's track is typical P&G, but that Stones track rocks! (Almost makes me want a bowl of ths stuff right now....) And thank you and Curly for all that background info. Phil M., thank you for posting the Susan Cowsill story. I have "Just Believe It," and have raved about it here in the recent past. The title song is a total gem, and it's impressive that she is able to maintain her optimism. The family in general seems to have had a tough go of it over the years, and I wish them luck, healing and happiness. Has Barry Cowsill been found yet? (If that news was posted within the last week, I'm not caught up to that yet.)

I just read where the Dave Clark 5 is on the ballot for induction into the Rock 'N Roll Hall of Fame? How amazing is that? Ever since the beginning, the Hall has steered clear of such nonsense. Why now has the Hall came to there senses with a group that epitomizes what is great about rock 'n roll--high energy music combined with RNB in a 2 minute powderkeg. Have I been watching the Dylan documentary too close and now feel the need to look deeper into such things? Is it that Mike Smith has had such a tragic accident that they feel now that it is time? It's just wierd! I guess my thoughts of changing the Hall into the "Rock n Roll Museum" should be re-looked at??......NAW! Justin Hayward, beware of ladders. Clark PS. Might seem this doesn't belong on S'Pop, but Phil S himself hosted the DC5 on both a TV show and special in which he lawded their greatness--deserved or not. -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]------------------- Message: 6 Date: Wed, 28 Sep 2005 12:18:34 -0700 (PDT) From: Mike Dugo Subject: Goldstar Studios Max Weiner wrote: > Has anyone ever gotten a response from the GoldStar Studios > Website concerning when they were going to be selling any of > their memorabilia?

Back in the 60's the DC5 (albeit very popular) were the Rodney Dangerfields of pop music. They were swept in on the coattails of the Beatles, and even their most ardent fans knew which of these groups ruled the roost. Unfortunately their reputation was diminished because they didn't happen to be as good as the greatest band that ever lived. At the same time, it seemed that the unwritten consensus was that they were definitely Number 2 in the hierarchy (at least initially), and then Number 3 after the Rolling Stones got rolling. For the non-believers out there, I ask, what's not to like? These blokes could rock (Glad All Over), headbang (Bits and Pieces), write ballads with endless killer hooks (Because; Everybody Knows), and give fresh interpretations of old favorites (Do You Love Me; Reelin' & Rockin'; Over and Over). Their only perceivable deadly sin was that they didn't get all relevant and record a concept album like the Kinks, or pay tribute to old bluesmen like the Animals. I say, "let em in".

Subject: Harbingers query The Harbingers, loovly Byrds-like folk-rock group on Columbia, never been mentioned in the S.pop archives -- maybe if I throw the name out, someone will have info or reminiscences to share. According to www.singlesdb.com , they put out 4 45.s Come Into My World/Down Around The River COLUMBIA 44290 67 It's Time That You Settled Down/Tompkins Square COLUMBIA 44417 68 April Come She Will/Bridge (The) COLUMBIA 44490 68 Can't Express My Love For You/Why Does It Have To Change COLUMBIA 44560 68 Does anyone know of others? What I'm trying to track down is a "protest song", criticizing the anti-war movement. None of these titles seem to be exactly 'it', so if anyone could set me on the right track, I'd be mos' grateful, yes I would.

It shed a funny kind of light on Scorsese's Dylan piece. I had spent Sunday at a tribute for a much-loved man, John Herald of The Greenbriar Boys. By Washington Square Arch, many of his old cronies celebrated his life in music. It continued into the night at a club in the Lower East Side. That night of bluegrass led into two nights of watching the Dylan docu, followed tonight by an amazing examination of Pete Best and his history with The Beatles. This all made me think about the man versus the work. Bereft of the weight of his body of work, it would be hard to cite one person in the Dylan piece who had much positive to say about Dylan the human being. He stole records, he used any leg up he could and never reciprocated when fortune found him. I knew Dylan in the Village and he was not someone who inspired affection among people he knew, either in the folk or pop worlds. I guess the upshot of my thinking was how Best (impoverished though his accomplishments are) came off versus the way Dylan did. Best, though he can be viewed as the biggest loser of our era, at least in the world of music, came off so much more sympathetically than Mr. Zimmerman. -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]------------------- Message: 13 Date: Thu, 29 Sep 2005 01:46:04 -0700 (PDT) From: Hasse Huss Subject: Re: Teddy Vann discography Will Stos asked: > Was "The Jet Set" by the Jet Set also done by Teddy Vann? Yes, it was. Teddy Vann is listed as the producer of 'The Jet Set' (Blaine 4000), the first release on Jerry Blaine's (Jubilee, Josie) eponymous label in 1965. Composers are Teddy Vann and Fred Williams, the same credits incidentally as for Freddy Williams & The Shindigs' 'Let's Shindig' on Zizz 0001. The Jet Set flip, by the way, is 'Swing, Swing Jet', another throwaway instrumental, though it uses a different backing track.

Thanks to Al Quaglieri for the brief history lesson. I am sure most of us have at least one, and many times more than one of these singles in our collections. One thing I always liked about these series is all the reissue singles I have found were the real hit versions from the actual single release. There may be exceptions in quality control, but I have not seen them issue a weak album track as a Hall Of Fame or Memory Lane single. I read in an online Barbra Streisand discography that stated the reissue singles in this series was the only place to get many of her hits in their original form (other than the original single), as the CD reissues use album tracks. I would venture this is true with many artists. In some cases it is just EQ different betweeen the hit single and album version, but sometimes it is edits, a different mix and reusing passages, or instrumentation. Too bad Columbia (excuse me, "Sony") doesn't issue a series of CDs made from the original singles masters used in this series.

The text on that H.H. page implies his was from an authentic aircheck, but the couple I have sure sound re-done, plus it seems to make more sense that they would be. --Phil M. -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]------------------- SPECTROPOP features: http://www.spectropop.com End
