Message: 2 Date: Mon, 16 Jan 2006 23:36:46 +0100 From: Ken Charmer Subject: Jean Thomas Martin: > I'd read that Jean was married to a 'Fox'. However, it > isn't Charles but Ray that Jean has apparently been > blissfully married to for coming up to 40 years! Jean married Ray Fox in 1966. She had worked with Charles though previously. I sent her all the Candy Girl tracks but she doesn't believe she is on them. We did complete Jean's discography and then we put together a CD of her best tracks for her. ‘Too Good To Be Bad’ The Definitive Jean Thomas Collection 1962-66 1 Moon River - Jean Thomas 2 My Ideal - Jean Thomas 3 He’s So Near - Jean Thomas 4 Seven Roses - Jean Thomas 5 The Boy That I Want Doesn’t Want Me - Jean Thomas 6 I Don’t Miss You At All - Jean Thomas 7 Don’t Make Me Fall In Love With You - Jean Thomas 8 Midnight Mary - Joey Powers (Duet with Jean Thomas) 9 Out In The Sun (Hey-Yo) - The Beach Nuts 10 Someday Soon - The Beach Nuts 11 People Will Talk - The Calendar Girls 12 Tommy - Angie & the Chicklettes (Jean Thomas with The Angels) 13 Ski-ing In The Snow - The Beach Girls 14 Society Girl - The Rag Dolls 15 Dusty - The Rag Dolls 16 Hey Hoagy - The Rag Dolls 17 Baby’s Gone - The Rag Dolls 18 We Almost Made It - The Rag Dolls 19 Put A Ring On My Finger - The Rag Dolls 20 Little Girl Tears - The Rag Dolls 21 Too Good To Be Bad - Jeanne Thomas 22 Life Of The Party - Jeanne Thomas 23 Working Girl - Jeanne Fox 24 All You Had To Do Was Love Me - Jeannie Thomas 25 You're The Root Of My Evil - Jeannie Thomas She is delighted with this set and has agreed to write up the history of each track for the Four Seasons UK Collectors Group and Spectropop members. On my forthcoming visit to New York I will also get to personally interview her about her time working with Ellie Greenwich, Mickie Harris, Bob Crewe and everyone else she can remember. We may be able to post requested tracks from this collection to musica soon. So what do you want to hear? Ken Charmer -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Hazlewood also co-wrote Deano's 1965 A-side "Just A Child In This World". I wonder if it was recorded at the same session as "I'm In Love With A Gonk"? He's the same Mike Hazlewood who later joined The Family Dogg and worked extensively with fellow Family Dogg-er Albert Hammond. And my vote for the ultimate Gonk cash-in would be the 1965 gonks-ploitation flick "Gonks Go Beat" -- you can't go wrong with any movie that features Lulu plus a drum-off featuring Andy White and Ginger Baker!

Artie, I have Howard Boggess's "Hollywood" (on either Jamie or Guyden) from the 60s - it sounds like it could have been an album track. He was also mentioned in S. J. Dibai's Kit Kats discussion group. Who is/was he? Did he have an album? (Were you involved?) What else did he do? Is he still alive? Etc., etc.... Thanks, Country Paul -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
