David Zimelis (second time poster, first time contributor to Musica) here. Responding to Phil's post, I just posted an .mp3 of "It's A Go-Go Place" by J.J. Cale. The vital statistics are: Written by Cale, Russell, Lesslie Liberty 55840 Released in 1965 Published by Viva Music. I know who Cale is & I assume Russell is Leon Russell. Who is Lesslie? I also have the flip side "Dick Tracy" if anyone is interested. Merry/Happy Whatever. DZ -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

I've uploaded Darlene's Spectoresque recording of "Christmastime for the Jews" to musica for your seasonal amusement. It's better with the visuals, but enjoyable on its own nonetheless. Enjoy!

I just listened to Harris & Meehan's Scarlet [hmmmmmmmm, only one "t"] and it starts with some saxes but mostly has French horns and an orchestra and choir big enough to do a respectable version of Handel's Messiah. It was written by "Lordan" [Jerry Lordan ??] if that helps pin it down - and was released in 1963. Oh yes, it is 20 degrees [F] in Taos, NM.
