Mark Wirz asked:
> IS THERE A "BEST OF" CD OUT THERE ON "BOOM BOOM" FREDDIE CANNON? 
> PLEASE TELL!!!!

Yes Mark, there is.
Freddie Cannon's Greatest Hits (32 tracks, including demo singles) 
was released on Point (CD 16250). Year: ??. Liner notes: nearly zero.
All his big ones are included, I guess. 
Also a Pallisades-Park-sound-aliker: Beachwood City.

Message: 2 Date: Thu, 09 May 2002 09:34:57 -0400 From: Patrick Rands Subject: Girlie Beatles....and the guys too All this talk of the girlie Beatle tribute songs, has gotten me thinking about the guys too. Were there any guys doing Beatle tributes? I've been trying to get my hands on an unreleased acetate of a very early Beatles cover done in a Four Freshman- influenced sound; basically a band unwilling to change with the trends who recorded the song probably in the spring of '64. Are there any other early-Beatle covers that you can think of that were anachronistic of the times? :Patrick -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 3 Date: Thu, 09 May 2002 13:36:19 +0100 From: Kingsley Abbott Subject: Rising Sons A group of Rising Sons had a Goffin/King song "You're My Girl" issued in the UK circa '65 on the Stateside label - It was very Tokenish pop, and was therefore immediately covered by The Rockin' Berries whose covers of such harmony fare were pretty well obligatory at that stage. Could this be the Amy group? Kingsley Abbott Igor tells me I must sort my inner sanctum - he is probably right, but I revel in my material cacophony... -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 4 Date: Thu, 09 May 2002 14:03:26 -0000 From: Mike Edwards Subject: Freddy Cannon - See For Miles is the way to go! Mark Wirtz asks: "IS THERE A "BEST OF" CD OUT THERE ON "BOOM BOOM" FREDDIE CANNON? PLEASE TELL!!!!" The great See For Miles label has done the best job for Freddy Cannon. Their EP collection includes both his Swan and WB hits and the volume level is higher than Rhino's Best Of. SFM has also released 6 of his original albums on 3 CDs (try Bang On/Steps Out for his 1962-3 Swan stuff). In the US, Varese have issued a Best Of, a 20 tracker, but of this Swan sides only. All 6 are available from amazon.co.uk, or from the main import dealers in the US. Want that big BOOM BOOM sound? Go for SFM's EP Collection.

Message: 5 Date: Thu, 09 May 2002 11:20:24 EDT From: Will George Subject: Re: Bernadette Peters I had no idea Bernadette Peters had a teenage recording career before her stage and screen success. I've always been a fan of hers. She has just released a new CD of Richard Rogers songs. She also recently starred in the Broadway revival of Annie Get Your Gun, and the accompanying cast album. She won a Tony Award for that a couple of years ago. She still looks and sounds amazing. My guess is she's about 52 now? Time has been kind to her.

Message: 6 Date: Thu, 09 May 2002 11:40:44 -0400 From: Marc Miller Subject: Re: Captain of Your Ship / Freddy Cannon There's another version of "Captain of Your Ship," this one by Bette Bright (ex-Deaf School) and the Illuminations. It came out ~1979, and its kind of "punked-up" with lots of loud guitars, etc. Quite wonderful, actually. Mark Wirtz asked about a Freddy Cannon Best Of - both Rhino and Varese have Best Ofs available, and See For Miles has issued several of his individual albums.

Message: 7 Date: Thu, 09 May 2002 11:55:28 EDT From: Bill Subject: Bryndle Good news for Bryndle/Andrew Gold fans. They finally have a second album out. Andrew is involved, but not to the same extent that he was on the first album. It can be ordered at www.bryndle.com. Right now, that is the only place to get it, although they hope it to be distributed more widely soon. I just ordered it, so I can't comment on the sound, but the samples on the website sounded great. Bill -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 8 Date: Thu, 09 May 2002 12:01:57 EDT From: Bill Subject: Gap commercial Can anyone tell me the title/artist for the song in the new Gap denim commercial? It starts out: "There's laughter on the wind/it's everywhere I go"? I should know that, but I don't. Thanks. Bill -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 9 Date: Thu, 09 May 2002 13:16:46 EDT From: Roland Subject: Re:mystery song The mystery song is 20 Years Ago In Speedy's Kitchen by TC Atlantic. It was originally issued on Parrot. There's a Best of T.C. Atlantic that just came out on CD. -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

This recently came available in stereo (well, the strings are alone on the left channel, now we know they did a stage overdub on the basic track). Pretty cool, actually.

Sure...Rhino did it as well. All the Swan stuff. Freddie was a helluva fella to interview, real loose and relaxed, pretense-free and we had a million chuckles. He's an Oldies Circuit survivor living comfortably in LA these days (at least as of '96!) -- Jimmy Botticelli Taking The E-Z...Way Out! -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Message: 14 Date: Thu, 09 May 2002 20:04:07 +0100 From: Mick Patrick Subject: Re: SOUL SISTERS / KOLETTES Original Message from Kingsley Abbott: > Ooh! The co-incidence of it all...having just a couple > of days ago written a bit about The Kolettes for the Ace > Records Right track mag sheet.... Hi, To read Kingsley's musings on the wunnerful KOLETTES simply click here http://www.acerecords.co.uk/etrackretail.html follow the simple instructions and the next issue of Right Track will be sent to you by the modern version of carrier pigeon. Technology! Wish I'd been there to see the Soul Sisters at Klooks Kleek. Did you get to witness Sugar Pie De Santo, Kingsley? I hear she made the cuddly duo seem quite schoolmarmy in comparison. Do tell. MICK PATRICK PS Boris sends his thanks to Igor for the Peanut EP and enquires after the safe arrival of the Untouchables C7. They should both get back to work if you ask me. -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
