Hope that somebody can help me out pretty quickly so that I can email my contact in Nashville to record the show for me. David -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

It was on > a Japanese bootleg CD "Phil Spector Masterpieces Vol 2" Phil C: > The only info (in English) reads 'The Barons "(I Just Go) Wild > Inside" (Spector - Poncia - Andreoli)', but I believe the 45 > is from 1964 on Imperial 66057. More info: The track was arranged by Bob Zwirn and produced by Snuff Garrett, and the Barons were Pete Anders (Andreoli) and Vincent Poncia, of Videls/Treasures/Tradewinds/Innocents fame. Phil C: > It's a lively little number, not dissimilar to the DC5's "Glad > All Over". The song was loosely recycled the following year, > minus the stomping and the male vocals, surfacing as "Mary > Ann" (Honey Love and the Lovenotes, Cameo 380). The backing vocalists on the Honey Love record were Candy & the Kisses. An unissued version exists with Candy herself on lead, yes? By the way, you can do The 81 to Honey Love's other side, "We Belong Together". Legend has it that "Mary Ann" was also recorded by the Crystals, although I know of no one who's ever heard it. Anybody? My late pal Alan Betrock had a copy of Anders & Poncia's original demo of "Mary Ann". I've no idea what happened to that acetate. However, many moons ago Alan did put the track on a cassette for me, an mp3 of which is now playing at musica. The lads sing the female lyrics, which adds to the entertainment value: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/spectropop/files/musica Hey la, Mick Patrick -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 3 Date: Sun, 27 Nov 2005 21:19:12 -0800 (PST) From: Larry Bromley Subject: Christmas with a New Yawk accent?! I recently acquired Phil Spector's "A Christmas Gift For You", which, of course, included the Ronettes, as the entire CD consisted of "the entire roster of Phil Spector Records," in the words of Phil himself. The Ronettes part included "Frosty The Snowman" and "Saw Mommy kissing Santa Claus". In these songs the lead, which I assume was Ronnie Spector, pronounced the names of Frosty and Santa Claus as one from the NYC area might have. Is it me, or is this an aberration, as I don't recall hearing a song with such a noticable regional accent, aside from C&W? Larry Bromley good day! Age is a number that tells how long you have lived in this world, not how to live in it. -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

I can't help you as to when she'll be on, but I sure wish Darlene would be on Letterman a few times a year at least. "Christams (Baby Please Come Home)" is not the only song she can belt out!

Message: 5 Date: Mon, 28 Nov 2005 07:30:20 -0000 From: Martin Roberts Subject: Jack Nitzsche at Spectropop update Playing as the new Jack Nitzsche Record of the Week on the home page is Orphelia McFall's "He's Never There" (Saturn 403), a fairly rare record and a very good one. Be there or be square, man: http://www.spectropop.com/JackNitzsche/index.htm This is the first of a series of records connected to Ron Barrett and Jack Nitzsche's work. Is it possible to keep adding records to Jack's discography? I hope so. The latest was found by Malcolm Baumgart and is a Spector cover by Dick & Dee Dee: http://www.spectropop.com/JackNitzsche/discography.htm Is it possible to keep adding to the reviews of Jack's "Hearing Is Believing" CD? I hope so. Harry Young has supplied another one, by music mag, Magnet: http://www.spectropop.com/JackNitzsche/AceCd_magreviews.htm Martin -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Darlene will be filming the Letterman Show on December 19th, for broadcast on the 22nd. I think we'll have to wait for the actual event to discover who her backing vocalists will be this year. Because Darlene is doing eight shows a week in Hairspray on Broadway currently, there will be no one woman Christmas shows from her this year. Shame, that . . . not that I was ever able to attend one. But one lives in hope. I know, for example, that Darlene has a strong desire to bring her holiday show to London one year.

For those registered at the NYT site, and who act quickly (as online stories are archived after a day or so), http://tinyurl.com/abl2p ought to get you there.

Message: 9 Date: Mon, 28 Nov 2005 23:11:01 -0500 From: ACJ Subject: Martha & the Vandellas - "In My Lonely Room" I'm a member of a Yahoo! Group devoted to Martha Reeves, and I forwarded the group's owner a recent S'pop Digest that included two messages about Martha & the Vandellas' "In My Lonely Room" (discussed in connection with "The 81"). He says that "In My Lonely Room" was a big hit for M&theVs "across The Pond" and that Martha still does the song at every concert. ACJ "Optimism works. It is more useful than pessimism." - E.Y.

Message: 10 Date: Tue, 29 Nov 2005 08:05:33 -0600 From: Skip Woolwine Subject: Tupper Saussy new works Tupper Saussy, the creative force behind the Neon Philharmonic, is having an art show December 2-16 in Nashville at Stanford Fine Art (6608-A Highway 100, 37205). Reception for the artist is this Friday, Dec. 2 from 6-8pm. Tupper told me that there are things in the works for a new music project that may mean a resurrection of sorts for the Neon Philharmonic. I hope to learn more Friday. Skip Woolwine -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 11 Date: Tue, 29 Nov 2005 09:16:24 -0500 From: Paul Urbahns Subject: Candy and The Kisses 81 CD For the benefit of we in the USA, the Candy and The Kisses CD is available from Amazon Canada, known to value hunters as http://www.amazon.ca With the current rate of exchange the price is quite reasonable. I frequently get orders from Amazon Canada arriving at my house in the sticks of Kentucky, faster than orders shipped by Amazon USA.

Message: 12 Date: Tue, 29 Nov 2005 13:38:19 +0000 (GMT) From: Jon Biker Subject: Brian Wilson interview Very interesting interview with Brian Wilson in today's (London) Times (29 November): http://www.timesonline.co.uk/article/0,,7-1894854,00.html It might not be the sort that his fans will be thrilled with, but still offers a different glimpse of the great man.

Message: 13 Date: Tue, 29 Nov 2005 08:34:44 -0800 (PST) From: Mike Dugo Subject: 60sgaragebands.com December updates The December updates to 60sgaragebands.com are now online, and we're pleased that they're among the largest we've ever done. In this issue, Art Steinman provides the scoop on New York's Jagged Edge (with news about a long overdue release of previously unreleased demos); Steve Sills recalls a forgotten Sunset Strip group, The Straight Jackets, who at one time were the house band for the Seawitch and recorded a demo at Gold Star Studios; Steven Bednarz provides details on The Pedestrians, an obscure garage band from the suburbs of Chicago who also have unreleased demos in the vaults; and Gary Williams sets the record straight on two of his '60s bands: The California Suns and The Magic Mushroom. And, if that isn't enough, in our Essays section we have a huge feature on The K-Otics, and get the skinny on why their version of "Double Shot (Of My Baby's Love)" isn't remembered today as much as The Swingin' Medallions'. Check it out at http://www.60sgaragebands.com. Mike Dugo -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 14 Date: Tue, 29 Nov 2005 16:39:12 +0100 From: Ken Charmer Subject: rare Seasons track to musica In the light of the Four Seasons' popularity on Broadway, I thought it might interest Spectropoppers to hear an unreleased track by the group. This was found, we are told, on an undated tape in the Philips/Mercury vaults. It is apparantly in a can with "One Man" mono master on it, and is undated and with no matrix number. Sounds like a demo to us. "One Man" is a Crewe/Brown composition that was also recorded by Ben E King, although with a very different treatment. A very moody arrangement from circa 1970, this is probably part of the recordings around the time the "Half And Half" album was recorded. We've remixed it a bit with Wavelab 4.,0 and it sounds pretty good. What do you think? According to Bob Gaudio there is little or nothing in the Philips vaults that has not been released by now, but we wonder what could be found if we ever won the lottery and got a free few days in there.
