Anyone got any thoughts on that? Iver was Terry Kennedy's production credit, although his records usually say "An 'Iver' Recording" (as opposed to the King Guion 45, which says "AN IVER PROD."). However, another clue is that the B-side was published by Southern Music, which I *think* was Carter- Lewis' publishing company -- and they had a very strong Terry Kennedy connection. Hope this helps, Scott -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 2 Date: Sun, 30 Oct 2005 10:28:05 -0000 From: Mick Patrick Subject: Hallowe'en with Kathy Keegan Kathy Keegan was trapped in the God-forsaken town of Dead Rock with no way out. Half the people she met were scared out of their minds and the other half may have made a deal with the devil himself. She couldn't be sure of who was on her side and who was out to dominate her soul. Suddenly a symphony orchestra appeared from nowhere and struck up a melody strangely familiar to her. As if hypnotised, Kathy began to sing... Luckily, the event described above was captured on magnetic tape, a copy of which found its way to ABC Paramount Records and is now playing at musica: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/spectropop/files/musica Deets: Kathy Keegan "A Study In Terror" (ABC 10806, 1966); written by Scott/Randazzo/Kusik; arranged and conducted by Don Costa. Happy Hallowe'en. Hey la, Mick Patrick PS: At a pinch, I'd settle for a bag of those edible eyeball thingies. The green ones. -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

I listened and definitely heard the similarity to Brenda's voice. I'm not sure about the comparison to the Ad Libs though. Has anyone asked Brenda about this one?

Message: 4 Date: Sun, 30 Oct 2005 15:29:04 -0400 From: Phil X Milstein Subject: Sunday Josephine Sunday In honor of all things Sunday, and in response to a request for same, now at Probe find Dick Clark's intro to Josephine Sunday's Dec. 18, 1965 appearance on "American Bandstand," on which she performed a coltish, head-snapping boogaloo while lip-syncing to "You Won't Even Know Her Name," followed by a brief chat between Clark and Sunday after the song's conclusion. Also there is a link to a page fulla technically inept, TV screen snapshots of the appearance. Note that while some have described J.S. here as being (and here I paraphrase) "Ronnieish," my own view on the matter is that if Ronnie Spector had mated with Yvonne Elliman and had a baby, and if that baby grew up to be a woman, she would probably look very much like Sunday.

One more Teddy Vann disc here, on Curtis Mayfield's label interestingly enough: TONY FOXX (Mayfield 7715) 1967 Because (Teddy Van) E.S.P, [sic] (Teddy Van) Prod : Teddy Van 'E.S.P.' is the same recording as on Calla 146; the A-side (the 'HIT SIDE', according to the label), is likewise a ballad, an even better one to these ears.

I know the Tokens and the Chiffons recorded versions of > this song, but I distinctly remember another group...a male group, > also recorded the song sometime in the sixties. The Parlettes cut a version, in 1964 on Jubilee. I am informed they were of the female persuasion, though, so perhaps that's not the one you're thinking of. --Phil M. -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Wow Wow Wow!!.....Wish I could find more eloquent words for my reaction, but I can't. I only wish I could attend, but I'm having knee surgery on that very day. I know, very poor timing. Otherwise I would be there. Someone, Someway, Somehow, has got to promise to post a minute by minute account of every single thing that takes place on this very monumental event. I'm hoping to get all the dirt from my buddy Reparata, but I want to hear everything. Anyone bringing a camcorder? -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Very neat piece! Sounds like an American response to the "Goldfinger" theme (esp. in Keegan's vocal mannerisms), with a further nod to the 1962 Stefanie Powers/Lee Remick/Glenn Ford vehicle "Experiment In Terror." I've never heard of Kathy Keegan before this, though -- did she made any other records?

Message: 11 Date: Mon, 31 Oct 2005 02:41:10 -0000 From: David A Young Subject: The fright fest continues in musica Boo! Did I scare you? If not, I can assure you that Claudine Clark will with her 1962 "Walkin' through a Cemetery," now playing alongside several other frightful seasonal features in musica. The affectation Claudine assumes throughout the song sounds like it must have hurt her throat, and she foreshadows one of Yoko Ono's vocal techniques on the spoken parts. Neither this song nor its B-side, "The Telephone Game," made it onto Claudine's LP or the CD reissue of it. All in all, a great companion piece to "Peanut Duck," don't you think? Looking forward to the New York party Wednesday (yes, I'll be there), David A. Young -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
