Phil M: > 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." According to the label, Kathy Keegan's "A Study In Terror" is from the motion picture of the same name. So it doesn't just sound like a movie theme, it is one. I've not seen the film. Find more info on it here: The b-side of the single is a version of Teddy Randazzo and Victoria Pike's "You Sent Me Silver Bells", a song many of us know and love by Lesley Gore, from her fabled sessions with Jack Nitzsche. Find Kathy's rendition playing right now at musica: Those who appreciate an English accent might enjoy it best.

The album is comprised > mostly of show tunes. An album? Wow! Maybe you could provide us with a track list, Ed? Might it be possible for you to scan the cover too? And I'm sure I'm not the only one who'd like to hear the title track. Any chance? Grasping? Moi? Well, yes, it seems. Sorry. In the meantime, I've taken a crack at a...

The only one I own is ABC 10806, so I can't vouch for any of the rest. Something tells me that Kathy Keegan and Patti Kogin might be one and the same person.

Message: 3 Date: Sun, 06 Nov 2005 20:48:21 -0000 From: Jeff Lemlich Subject: Re: Persian Market Dave Monroe: > That Little Ricky Angle sounds familiar, so maybe my friend > was already hip to this. If I recall correctly, "Little Ricky" (Keith Thibodeaux) was also a member of David & The Giants, who had recorded for the Fame label. "Babalu" was not one of their releases!

Just two different groups with the same name. > There was The Beagle No: 3 though - The Beagle and the Four > Liverpool Whigs with I Want to Hold Your Hand LP, released on > Sutton Records presumably in 1964. Any more Beagles? Let's not forget the Hit label BEAGLES, which was yet another Bobby Russell nom de guerre. There was even an attempt at a "legit" release on Spar by Bobby Russell & The Beagles, a good, rockin' version of "Roll Over Beethoven" that is fairly easy to find.

Not sure that it charted though... Linda Carr reached #15 in the UK charts of 1975 with "High Wire". The following year she (and the Funky Boys) reached #36 with "I sold my soul for rock'n'roll".

"(You Got The) Gamma Goochee" was originally recorded by its composer, The Gamma Goochee (Himself). It was subsequently recorded by, among other groups, The Kingsmen, which is where The Persian Market claim to have heard it.

"They were the supplier to the war effort--RCA > Electronics owned RCA Records at the time. So for anybody to > even talk about the war was a no-no." Says Wilkin, RCA refused > to promote the record, so he called it quits, leaving over an > album's worth of unissued RCA material in the can. What isn't mentioned is this isn't merely a Wilkin original, but a Wilkin-Wilkin-Kristofferson original, before Kris Kristofferson's wild success as a songwriter. Bucky Wilkin's mom, Marijohn, and Kristofferson were writing partners at one time. Bucky also had a chance to record the original version of "Me And Bobby McGee", with his group The American Eagles on Liberty (which also included John Wyker of the Rubber Band on Columbia, and later of Sailcat). Martin then wrote: > My question is whether or not anyone here has ever heard "Delta > Day No Time to Cry" or perhaps even those unreleased RCA songs > mentioned? It is everything Bucky mentioned, and more. Look for it in musica in the coming day or two. Jeff Lemlich -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 8 Date: Sun, 06 Nov 2005 23:31:13 -0000 From: Regina Litman Subject: New Record Featuring Brian Wilson Coming out This Week, Possibly on TV 11/14 OK, some of you already know that I have a fixation on that Diamond guy. I know that some of you are also interested in Brian Wilson. Well, the Diamond guy has a new album called "12 Songs" coming out on Tuesday. It's coming out in two forms, one of which is something called a "Digi-pak" (whatever that is) that costs a couple of dollars more than the other form. The "Digi-pak" version contains two extra songs (but is not called "14 Songs"), one of which is supposed to be a duet of the Diamond guy and Brian Wilson on a song called "Delirious Love". I've heard it, and the Diamond guy is the one who carries the lead vocal most of the way through (unlike the way the Diamond guy and the Streisand woman traded vocals on their 1978 duet hit). The Diamond guy has a solo version of this song on both forms of the new album, so don't get misled by the presence of it on the non-Digi-pak version. Also, according to some web sites for the Diamond guy, both of them are supposed to be on Jay Leno's "Tonight" show on Monday, Nov. 14. -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Message: 10 Date: Mon, 7 Nov 2005 19:24:04 -0000 From: Mick Patrick Subject: The Guilloteens I know that "I Don't Believe" by the Guilloteens has been much discussed here, but I have a few further questions: Does someone out there have the original 45? If so, does the label bear any producer or arranger credits? Is the track available on CD, a legit one? I love this record, in a Lovin' Righteous Spoonful Brothers kinda way. Thanks in advance.

I today just saw Larry Weiss outside the Starbucks at Belle > Meade Plaza, and a few weeks ago at Bread & Company at Westgate. Careful, he'll think we S'poppers are stalking him! (smile) I think I told you that I believe I've worn out his patience with my questions about his 60's music. Meanwhile, I'm trying to get our buddy Bucky to respond on ther board to the Ronnie and the Daytonas thread. Ed -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
