Anyone know of > any others? ------------------------------------------------------------ Peter Andreassen: Magic Records in France: http://www.magic-records.com/ has a CD out with 22 versions of "Apache" called "Apachemania." ------------------------------------------------------------ Gary Myers: I assume you mean besides Jorgen Ingman's hit. It was also the first chart record for Davie Allan & Arrows. A Wisconsin artist, Jerry Miller, also did a vocal version. ------------------------------------------------------------ Phil Milstein: Perhaps a bit ironically, the hit version in the U.S. was by Swedish guitarist Jorgen Ingmann, on Atco from '61. Other "Apache" titles (of which I can't confirm a connection to THE "Apache") include: The Chiefs: Apache (Greenwich 408, 1958 (and thus likely unrelated) Fantastic Dee-Jays: Apache (Sherry 308, 19??) Jesse Dean: Apache (Caprice 105, 1961) Rod Hunter (!): Apache (London 1044, 19??) Sugar Hill Gang: Apache (Sugar Hill 774, 1981) The Venturas: Apache ( Drum Boy 107, 19??) Davie Allan & The Arrows: Apache '65 (Sidewalk 1 (also Tower 116), 1965) Eyes Of Blue: Apache '69 (Mercury 72911, 1969) Davie Allan & The Arrows: Apache '73 (MGM 14650, 1973) Amazing Guitars: Apache 80 (Blue Sky 2777, 1979) Roy Etzel: Apache Blues (Time 1029, 1961) Luiz Bonfa: Apache Talk (Ranwood 958, 19??) Earl Hooker: Apache War Dance (Age 29101, 1961) Heinie Beau: Tango Apache (Signet 280, 1960) I don't recall any other song that's enjoyed as many "year- suffixed" variations as this one! (And yikes, it gives me an idea for a new compilation theme.) Of the ones Jimmy mentioned (plus the U.S. release of the original): The Shadows: Apache (ABC 10138, 1960) Hot Butter: Apache (Musicor 1466, 1972; also Musicor 1491, 1974) Sonny James: Apache (RCA 47-7858, 1961) Sonny James: Apache (Columbia 10249, 1975) The Shadows' original makes a memorable soundtrack appearance, behind a fetching makeup montage with Bridget Fonda and Joanne Whalley-Kilmer, in the terrific 1989 movie "Scandal." How! ---------------------------------------------------------- Steve Harvey: Roy Clough wrote: > 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. Actually I bet alot of people in this group heard the Shads' version of "Apache" thanks to Sire Records. In the 70s they released a series of double British Invasion albums. My favorite was of Brit Hits that came out before that Liverpool Foursome arrived. The Shads were on that one. Jorgen's is a copy, but it's not that bad. I mainly got into the Shadows because I wanted to copy instrumentals on the guitar. Got bored with alot of the Ventures stuff and found Jerry Lordan was really handy with a tune. ---------------------------------------------------------- 'Apache' by The Indians-bee ghorra!

It's an obscure goodie - I don't have a copy myself and still need to hear the flip.

Does anybody know anything about this record? > Or, who Barbara Chandler was? Lovely record, that. The other side, "I'm Going Out With The Girls", is even better. Barbara Chandler was married to Vince Marc, manager of the Toys. In fact, the Toys sing back-ups on some of Barbara's records. Find out more about her in the S'pop Archives, or simply click here: http://tinyurl.com/8zqjs While girly Christmas platters practically grow on trees, New Year records do not. I can only think of a handful. So I've posted Barbara's offering to musica: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/spectropop/files/musica Details are: Barbara Chandler "A Lonely New Year" (Kapp 575, 1964); written by Fred Anisfield and Larry Weiss; arranged and conducted by Alan Lorber; produced by Allen Stanton. Tell us more about the CD please. Hey la, Mick Patrick -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 6 Date: Tue, 27 Dec 2005 23:31:20 -0000 From: Fred Clemens Subject: Re: Karl Hammel Revisited I just got word back from Paul Evans this morning. He assures me that Jimmy Krondes and Karl Hammel were two different people. As to Hammel's whereabouts, it's still a mystery, though it had been rumored that Hammel has since passed. Still, there's no evidence one way or the other. And so the search goes on. I'd still like to know if any Spectropoppers have ever seen him perform or anything. After all, his "Summer Souveniers", written by Paul Evans and Jimmy Krondes, was somewhat successful, so I'd think he'd have to have made an appearance somewhere. Even a publicity photo??

Does anybody know anything about this record? > Or, who Barbara Chandler was? Mick Patrick: > Lovely record, that. The other side, "I'm Going Out With > The Girls", is even better. This came out in the UK on London HLR 9861 in March 1964 licensed from Kapp Records. As an 18 year old schoolboy I bought it with the wages from my paper round having heard it on Radio Luxembourg. It's been one of my all time favourite 45s ever since, although I am sorry to say I don't think I have ever played the B side. Must give it a spin with New Year coming up! Chris Rowling Tatsfield UK ps it didn't make the charts here so it's quite rare in the UK now. -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

The Bongo Band verion has been used by Breaks, Hip Hop DJ's for years. I think have something called Apache 65 by Davie Allan and the Arrows but my son has borrowed the album to cut between that and the Bongo Band.

In fact that Incredible Bongo Band has been re-issued on vinyl. Sounds mighty good too. -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Does anybody know anything about this record? > Or, who Barbara Chandler was? Mick Patrick: > Lovely record, that. The other side, "I'm Going Out With > The Girls", is even better> Tell us more about the CD please. The CD I have is called "Naughty and Nice" I guess it's bootleg because the label reads simply as Santa. most of the artist I never heard of before with few exceptions (Jimmy Charles, Brenda Lee, Jack Scott & Barbara Chandler). The Barbara Chandler is the track that stands out; maybe because it's Fred Anisfield and Larry Weiss composition. Theres no liner notes; the only reason I knew the Barbara Chandler track was a Larry Weiss composition was only because it's listed on Larry Weiss website. below I copied the tracklist to the cd. Santa Claus Is Coming To Town - Shantons I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus - Jimmy Charles It's Christmas Once Again - Newports The Wildest Christmas - Rumbles Elvis Won't Be Here For Xmas - Linda Hughes I Told Santa Claus I Want You - Surf Boys Christmas Bomp - Radio Mann My Christmas Star - Ronnie Suazo and Bell-Clairs Jingle Bell Slide - Jack Scott Christmas Kisses - Bookends Deck the Halls - Regals Nuttin for Christmas - Kenny & Corky Merry Twistmas - Jay Matty I Farted on Santa's Lap - Lynda W Limbo Under the Christmas Tree - Classic Four Bring Me A Beatle For Christmas - Cindy Rella They Shined Up Rudolph's Nose - Johnny Horton Christy Christmas - Little Brenda Lee Rock'n'Rudolph - Uniques I Want To Spend Christmas With Elvis - Marlene Paula A Lonely New Year - Barbara Chandler Winter Wonderland - Ronnie Suazo and Bell-CLairs Santa Isn't Here - Crystalairs My Christmas Star - Nocturns Christmas Is Here - Regals Stuck In the Chimney - Surf Boys Wish You A Merry Christmas - Kim Weston Santa Claus Is Coming To Town - Rumbles Best Regards and Happy Holidays, Robbie -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
