Reviewed by David Bell: Ron Barrett "Ron Barrett was a colleague of H.B. Barnum and Richard Berry, Phil Spector and Jack Nitzsche, Bobby Darin and Sonny Bono ... As vocalist, musician, producer, writer or record label founder he was an active participant in the Meadowlarks' "Heaven And Paradise", the Duals' "Stick Shift" and Merry Clayton's "It's In His Kiss"." By Martin Roberts: Kim Fowley "I am trained to make magnificent records . . . I just do it!" A Kim Fowley Interview by Kingsley Abbott Jersey Boys "Finally, Spectropoppers have their very own Mama Mia. I so totally recommend this to fellow members." Reviewed by Mike Edwards: The Everly Brothers "'From Nashville To Hollywood', the first in a series that will gather non-LP tracks, alternate versions, and outright-unissued material from the WB period." Reviewed by Frank Young: Enjoy, The S'pop Team -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 2 Date: Mon, 26 Dec 2005 05:28:19 -0800 (PST) From: Max Weiner Subject: Earl Jean & the Cookies I just purchased the Rhino Girl Group Box set. While I can't name all my favorites on it, I do have a question concerning Earl Jean & "I'm into Something Good". Is that Carole King helping out on the background vocals? It sure sounds like her. I have listened to that song for years and wondered that. Can anyone tell me? Thanks much in advance! MJW -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Anyone know of any others? JB -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 4 Date: Mon, 26 Dec 2005 19:27:45 -0000 From: Roy Clough Subject: Re: Jerry Lordan Perhaps fitting to complete the Jerry Lordan story is that in 2004 The Shadows reformed for a Final Tour, turned out not to be the Final tour as the UK section was so successful they did a European Final tour in 2005. Hank Marvin and Bruce Welch had virtually not spoken to each other in 15 years and it was really down to Brain Bennett, the drummer, to get them to bury their differences for what was essentially one last time. Their record label issued a double album which was basically all previously released tracks except for one number "Life Story", which incidentally was title of album, this was an old Jerry Lordan number and perhaps fitting that probably the last ever track to be recorded by The Shadows was this. To correct one earlier point Bert Weedon's version was issued and made number 24 in UK charts, Joregn Ingmann's version of Apache was not in same league as The Shadows and I can only assume that you guys/gals across the pond never got to hear their version. -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Connie Francis I've had a quick search through my Connie Francis collection and have come up with the following: Arranged by Herb Bernstein: Lonely Again MGM 13814 Why Say Goodbye? MGM 13923SS >From the "My Heart Cries For You" album (E/SE 4487) Lonely Again (as above) Don't Touch Me There'll Be No Teardrops Tonight The Wayward Wind How's The World Treating You? I'd Be A Legend In My Time Hope this helps. David. -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
