As promised, "Johnny And The Jukebox" by Pearly Gates (UK Polydor 2058 443, 1974) is now playing at musica. This splendid girl group death-disc pastiche was written and produced by Bickerton and Waddington and arranged by Gerry Shury. No, don't thank me, thank Clunkie, he supplied the track. Bless. Here's the link: James, contact me off-list with your street address if you'd like some more Pearly Gates tracks on a CDR. The others are not so suitable for musica, you see. I assume you've read John Clemente's book Girl Groups: Fabulous Females That Rocked The World. The Flirtations/Gypsies have a chapter of their own, you know.

Message: 6 Date: Tue, 8 Nov 2005 18:17:04 -0000 From: Martin Roberts Subject: Jack Nitzsche at Spectropop update David 'Spectorcollector' Young takes the reins again on the Record Of The Week and finishes his trilogy of essays on "Yes Sir That's My Baby" b-sides. A fascinating series, this, the York-released "Bee Side Soul", is arguably the most rewarding musically. Check it out on the Home page: Other guest contributors are always welcome for the ROTW slots. If one of your favourites or even a pet hate isn't on a legitimate CD and you'd care to write a review, your input is welcome. Martin -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Sorry we didn't get chance to talk more - I'm always up for a good chinwag about Linda Laurie! I was so caught up in the excitement of the event that I never even introduced you to my pals. I was too busy trying (and failing) to make eye contact with Mary Weiss. Sorry. Next time, eh? Anyway, the white lady with the curly shag was the lovely Nanette Licari of the Delrons. > and the other was a tall African-American woman (I could only > see her in profile from where I was standing). Sorry, I didn't recognize her. I did notice that she had been presented with a copy of the "Girl Group Sounds" box set, so it's safe to assume she was a member of one of the groups contained thereon. Previously, she was sat at the same table as Mary "Reparata" Aiese-O'Leary and I heard them chatting. I'll drop Mary a line and ask her. Maybe it was Marsha Gee?! Not. Thanks for sharing your pix. The Toys shot is especially nice. Does anyone have any others? Hey la, Mick Patrick -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

I can't believe how behind schedule we actually are, but hey we're only alien! The problem is, if we don't get all of the promo material that's been building up over the past few months covered soon Shindig Mansions' second floor music room will collapse. But that's our concern, not yours. Covered this month:- LORI BURTON THE CHOCOLATE WATCHBAND THE COWSILLS DONOVAN JESSE HECTOR JOSEPH LIMONADA LIVERPOOL ECHO EVIE SANDS SUNLIGHT CHILDREN OF NUGGETS DIGGIN' FOR GOLD RHINO'S GIRL GROUP BOX NEW RUBBLES THE BARRACUDAS.... and lots, lots more.

Happy Reading, Jon 'Mojo' Mills Editor, Shindig Magazine -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 9 Date: Tue, 08 Nov 2005 21:41:42 -0000 From: Julio Niño Subject: The Charmers / "Johnny and The Jukebox" and "Bee Side Soul" Hola Everybody. I´ve been listening intensively these last days to "Shy Guy" by The Charmers at musica, and I´ve some doubts about the group. I suppose that they must be the same group that recorded "Looking For Trouble", because the main voice in "Shy Guy" is very similar to the wonderfully menacing "Terri", the lead voice of "Looking For Trouble", but in this latter, they sounded like a real Girl Group, and in "Shy Guy", the backing singer/s are masculine. Summarizing, Could somebody please tell who were the components of The Charmers and does anybody know of have any supposition about who could have done the backing voices in "Shy Guy"?. Could he be Van McCoy himself? I´m beginning to suspect that I´m obsessed with Van´s voice and I hear him everywhere. I leave you, Paquita (my kitten) is inciting me. She wants to play "Guilty", her favorite game: I tell her accusatorily "¡Guilty!, ¡Guilty!...", and she runs furiously and hides behind the refrigerator. She must love the guilty complex because she always purrs loudly behind the fridge, with a perverse expression on her face. Chao. Julio Niño. PS: Many thanks to Clunkie for the fun "Johnny and The Jukebox" and also to David A. Young for the erudite and very interesting saga about the "Yes Sir That´s My Baby" B-sides. I loved the moody "Bee Side Soul" currently playing at the ROTW section in The Jack Nitzsche´s web. -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 10 Date: Wed, 09 Nov 2005 02:34:02 -0000 From: Mike Bennidict Subject: The July 4 Anyone know about this group? Right now I'm hearing a song by them called "A Frightened Little Girl". What's so interesting about this song is the part of the song sounds like a Neil Young song he recorded in 1977 called "You Are Like a Hurricane". Wonder if he heard this "Frighted Little Girl" song and was inspired by it? Mike -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
