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? Jeff responded: > Let's not forget the Hit label BEAGLES, which was yet another > Bobby Russell nom de guerre.

I know about at least one more Beagles: a ghost group which used this name for a Beatles cover album, whose cover art was that one from a legit Tony Sheridan/Beatles issue, with the "Beatles Top Poll!" headline on a batch of copies of the Mersey Beat newspaper (or so it seemed) on the street!

Message: 3 Date: Wed, 09 Nov 2005 15:20:10 -0000 From: Steve Subject: Marci & The Mates In 1962 or '63 there was a record "Shall I Tell Him You're Not Here," a Pomus-Shuman tune recorded by Marci & The Mates on Big Top. Does anybody know if Marci & The Mates ever did any other records? Steve -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Andres wrote: > Cool label scans: > http://rcs.law.emory.edu/rcs/pics/d21/21790.htm Great scans! There are quite a few there by Doug Sahm. I noticed that his record on Warrior, "Crazy Days" and " If I Ever Need You," is credited to Doug Sahm & The Pharoahs. Are those the same Pharoahs that would later back Sam the Sham, another great Texas rocker? Max -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Jeff Lemlich responded: > It is everything Bucky mentioned, and more. Look for it in musica > in the coming day or two. Thanks. I'm sure I'm not the only one looking forward to hearing that one. Speaking of Ronny & The Daytonas, I've just purchased a German compilation off eBay. It's called 'Beach Land' and contains 32 songs, including some of those later RCA cuts I was wondering about. I'm really impressed by many of them -- 'Winter Weather', 'Dianne, Dianne', 'The Last Letter'. As I suspected some songs from the Sandy album did not make it on to the Sundazed Mala-era compilation. I was therefore glad to find three 'new' songs from the Sandy album on 'Beach Land' -- 'Hold Me My Baby', 'Be Good to Your Baby' and 'Baby Say No'. All are great and the former two have a somewhat of a Spectorian approach. I've heard 'Be Good To Your Baby' before by another artist, but can't recall which at the moment. So that leaves 'Come Into My Heart' and 'So In Love' from the Sandy album, that I've yet to hear. To the best of my knowledge, none of the two has ever made it to CD. Does anyone here have the album and if so, are these two songs on par with the rest? Any chance of playing them to musica? With kind regards, Martin, Denmark -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

The flip side of "Frightened Little Girl," "Mr. Miff," is one of the greatest moody instrumentals ever. It is apparently the A-side but without vocals. No Neil Young song has ever flipped me out like "Mr. Miff." Genius! -Bill -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Message: 8 Date: Thu, 10 Nov 2005 12:38:11 +0000 From: Paul Rusling Subject: Re: Pearly Gates Just a line to say thanks to Mick Patrick for the Pearly Gates track at musica. I knew Pearly back in the '70s, when she hosted some shows at Radio Luxembourg. I had previously played her Flirtations stuff on Deram to death in my previous persona as a nightclub / ballroom DJ. She had a great radio voice, as well as a lovely warm personality. She had a few tracks published by Luxembourg's own publishing company (Louvigny Music), and Alan Keen signed her for a year to host programmes. She was second-most listened to DJ in the Gallup Poll surveys 208 did, after Johnnie Walker. Anywone know where she is these days?
