DEANO 45 COLUMBIA DB 7728 (1965) A. JUST A CHILD IN THIS WORLD B. LITTLE MISS WITH IT DEANO EP (PS) COLUMBIA SEG 8470 (1965) A. UNLUCKY FOR SOME I'M IN LOVE WITH A GONK B.

WHEN YOU WISH UPON A STAR DEANO 45 COLUMBIA DB 8233 (1967) A. WHAT'S THE MATTER WITH THE MATADOR? B. BABY, LET ME BE YOUR BABY "Baby, Let Me Be Your Baby" - DEANO's most credible performance on vinyl - also appears on the first CD volume of "DREAM BABES", "AM I DREAMING" (RPM 1994). i have posted a glossy MAY 1966 press photo of DEANO to the SPECTROPOP photos section. the little blurb on the back of the photo is as follows- "Tiger Bay, Cardiff, that gave us Shirley Bassey, becomes bountiful again and sends us talented, melodious 13 year old DEANO. With her current recording of "Starlight, Starbright", DEANO is to tour all over Britain, gathering fans as she goes. Her singing, and her vivacious personality will surely put her, in record time, in the top class." clunk click every flip, Michael Clunkie -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Much to my shock, > a jokester had stated that "Nino Tempo" is actually a pseudonym > for Stan Getz! Now that's funny! In light of the fact that Stan Getz is dead, I can confidently confirm that they're two different people because I had lunch with Nino week before last. He's not only still very much alive and well - he also paid the tab. However - and I'm not sure if a lot of people know this - Nino is one of the finest sax players around. He did an instrumental jazz album for Atlantic a few years back, including a track called "Theme for Anna," written by Mike Stoller. I've worked for Leiber & Stoller for the last 20 years. When I had lunch with Nino the other day, he told me that he actually met Mike before Jerry did. Nino and a friend of his were going to see Wardell Gray at the Shrine Auditorium. Nino's friend brought Mike along, and that's how the two first met. Nino was 15 and Mike was 16 at the time. L&S didn't meet until the following year. Small world.

Message: 3 Date: Sun, 18 Dec 2005 01:00:36 -0500 From: Mark Hill Subject: Darlene Love - Live On Saturday Night Live I'm watching tonights Saturday Night Live, hosted by Jack Black, and suddenly we are treated to: Saturday Night Live, TV Funhouse: "Christmastime For The Jews" Done in Rankin-Bass like puppet animation (in black and white), set to the Phil Spector sound-alike title song, sung by a Darlene Love (sound alike???) No, it WAS Darlene herself!!!! (She was listed in the cartoon credits.) And Darlene was there in the studio, singing live with the band, as they went to the commercial. I had no idea she was to be on. And, hey. Neil Young is there, too! As the musical guest! Much greatness on the SNL stage tonight. Great stuff!

Message: 4 Date: Sun, 18 Dec 2005 16:59:44 -0000 From: Mick Patrick Subject: "Stamp Out The Beatles" by the Hi Liters Thanks to everyone who responded to my post regarding the Mystery Tour. I've forwarded them all to Rob Finnis. So impressed was he with the immediate response, that he has requested that I put out another plea on his behalf. Does anyone have a copy of "Stamp Out The Beatles" by the Hi Liters on Scepter 1276? If so, Rob needs to know: Songwriter/s? Arranger/producer/s? Publishing company? A 300 dpi label scan would be great too. All assistance very gratefully received. Thanks in advance on Rob's behalf.

Message: 5 Date: Fri, 16 Dec 2005 13:38:02 -0300 (ART) From: Various Subject: Re: King Kong of a Kwestion Dear all, Please consider this discussion thread now closed. Many thanks, S'pop ---------------------------------------------------------- Artie Wayne asked: > In each song King Kong is mentioned by name. I wonder if > anyone out there knows of any other songs where they give > the King a shout-out? I hope this provides an answer, however in part: The Kinks - King Kong Frank Zappa - King Kong (albeit an instrumental) Cheerio, Ayrton Mugnani ------------------------------------------------------------- FrankM: > I though Kong was mentioned on this song but the Bonzos give > the credit to a session gorilla on vox humana on "The Intro > and the Outro". The album is entitled Gorilla, and it is "Dedicated to Kong who must have been a great bloke". Charles Ulrich ------------------------------------------------------------- Had some extras time on my hands. Googled far more than I imagined: There's the unforgettable theme to the 1966 Rankin-Bass KING KONG TV toon: King Kong You know the name of King Kong You know the fame of King Kong Ten times as big as a man. ABBA- King Kong Song (Waterloo LP) Lyrics here: RICK DEES- Dis-Gorilla (1976 King Kong-related follow up to Disco Duck) DANIEL JOHNSTON- King Kong (Yip Jump Music 1983). They shot him down. They shot him down. They thought he was a monster. But he was the king. They came to his island ... TOM WAITS- King Kong (2004- covers the Daniel Johnston song) BRUCE COCBURN- King Kong Goes To Tallahasee: JIMMY CASTOR BUNCH- King Kong (Info here): Here's a GROUP- King Kong And D Jungle Girls: Then there's: KAPTAIN KOOL AND THE KONGS (Epic LP, 70s) GEORGE JONES- Old King Kong (prior to 1982) BOBBY BORIS PICKETT- King Kong (Your Song) MOMUS- Ping Pong With Hong Kong King Kong (A Sing Song) (1997) TYLER, BIG T.- King Kong (196_) DICK HOLLER- King Kong (1961) Herald H-66 ORLIE AND THE SAINTS- King Kong (1960) Band Box 253 KING KONG- ALL AFRICAN MUSCAL. Very interesting LP/cover here: "This LP was recorded by the cast of King Kong, a South African troupe, whose musical opened on 23 February 1961" WHEATUS- The Song I Wrote When You Dissed Me (Has KING KONG in the lyrics) Udo Lindenberg- Sister King Kong Someone should make a compilation.... I'm sure there's more... Dr. Mark ---------------------------------------------------------- Mr. Wayne, you really jogged my sometimes faulty memory with your question. I immediately thought of an album from the 60s that came out trying to capitalize on Bobby "Boris" Pickett's "Monster Mash." "Dracula's Greatest Hits" was recorded by Gene Moss, using a Lugosi-esque Dracula voice, and was headlined by a Beatles parody called "I Want To Bite Your Hand." "The King Kong Stomp" was one of the tracks. More info can be found by searching under the album title. The album appealed to my totally off-the-wall sense of humor, plus album artist Jack Davis remains one of my favorite comic artists. Larry Bromley --------------------------------------------------------- Hey. David Z, first time poster here. Has anyone mentioned "King Kong Song" from ABBA's first album, "Waterloo"? Seasons Greetings to all. --------------------------------------------------------- -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

As I understand it Wikipedia is a free on line encyclopedia, but the source material is anyone who volunteers info and so they are not reliable. You could probably make up a previously unknown subject and write something up and it would probably be accepted as fact. Don't trust it. The internet is the biggest spreader of mistruths ever devised already. Paul Urbahns Radcliff, KY -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
