The > Richard Barrett productions of the mid-60s are a fascinating > lost chapter in the development of Philly soul ,,, How is it that a New York producer (and one of the architects of the girl group sound) winds up one of the architects of the Philly sound? I realize Philadelphia is not especially far from New York, but the two scenes seem to have been largely independent of one another. I'm sure there are many examples of operational cross-over between them, but I hadn't realized that Barrett had been among the commuters.

Message: 2 Date: Sat, 31 Dec 2005 15:03:44 -0500 From: Country Paul Subject: Sandy Linzer; Happy New Year FYI, I met Sandy Linzer briefly at a voice-over job just before Christmas. He is working on music projects with one of my clients here in New Jersey. I didn't have time to talk or ask any questions, but at least I got the chance to say hello. I'm afraid it's more than I've done much of here this year. New Year's resolution: become more active again on Spectropop. With that resolved, let me wish all of you worldwide a happy and healthy 2006; let's keep those great sounds out there for everyone to discover! Best to all, Country Paul -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 3 Date: Sat, 31 Dec 2005 22:30:19 -0000 From: Lyn Nuttall Subject: Re: Phil's Christmas Album Paul: > You would be surprised to find how many people hear the > songs on radio every year and have no idea they all come > from one album. And I suspect some people who weren't around at the time may be familiar with the arrangements through later recordings that borrow from Phil's Christmas Album. My suspicion was aroused a couple of years ago when I heard a soundalike by a well-known artist being muzacked through my supermarket. I am so not full of information this morning: I can't recall which track or which well-known artist, but you may know some examples. Happy '06 chums, Lyn -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

What shocked me was that The Ventures edited > the Beatles original 45 onto the front of their track. The Ventures version is on thier classic "The Ventures Knock Me Out!" album. After listening to it on CD they might have done just that. It sounds suspiciously close but its been slightly edited. But the Ventures were/are masters at copying other guitarists sounds, and they might have gotten the same sound while in the studio. I saw a Beatles tribute act play "I Feel Fine" once, and all the guy did to get that same sound was stick his Rickenbacker right up to a Vox amp!

Message: 5 Date: Sun, 01 Jan 2006 10:35:15 -0000 From: Ian Slater Subject: Internet Record Buying Phil M said: > http://www.gemm.com is almost always your best first stop > for rare record buying. I incline to agree, for the reasons Phil stated although, in my experience, the really seriously obscure rarities are slightly more likely to come up on eBay simply because the price is so hard to set. I too have not been "had" by any of the GEMM traders to whom they link, although I have chanced some of their low-rated clients. These tend not to have the records they advertise - and leave you waiting for a month before telling you! My main reason for writing though is to recommend Netsounds, the British equivalent of GEMM. This works in a similar way to GEMM, with many of the same items and traders, but it's worth checking as there are many different ones too. The traders are based all of the world and trade internationally. You'll find it at: http://www.netsoundsmusic.com/ Happy hunting!

The > traders are based all of the world and trade internationally. > You'll find it at: http://www.netsoundsmusic.com/ Another alternative, with seemingly ties to Gemm as it appears the same sellers and items are offered for sale, is www.musicstack.com. It seems Gemm doesn't use PayPal as an option for payment, which is personally convenient for me. First preference is Ebay (out of habit), and then Musicstack to see if I can find a reliable seller for a lesser price. Musicstack has been winning out recently on a couple of items, but not all.

Not convinced they did copy it Richard, take a listen to their Out A Space album they were producing those sort of sounds before The Beatles did by accident. -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Message: 9 Date: Sun, 1 Jan 2006 13:59:31 EST From: Claire Francis Subject: Happy New Year Hey Hey S'poppers.... I am so wishing you the Happiest of New Years....with many many happy ones to come... Thanks for your loving vibes during this year....THEY WORKED!!! We are truly blessed to have the music in our lives. It reminds me of a great line I read in an interview with the artist Matisse. The interviewer asks: "Do you believe in God?" And Matisse answers "Only when I paint." Yeah baby. For me, the same holds when I play the music....a place where there are no boundries to the love....and the healing....So...God bless you All....and keep PLAYING THE MUSIC. Light and Love Claire Francis January 1, 2006 -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
