Thanks, but I didn't entirely record "They Don't Know", although I did the mix. By then I was becoming 'troublesome': Even though we recorded 24-track, I had a habit of recording things the way I wanted them to sound, i.e. with echo, including the vocal. (Adding echo later is not the same). My faithful assistants Julian Mendelsohn and Dave Meegan, both of whom eventually fared better than I did in the music industry, rebelled, with reports that "Phil's stuff can't be remixed - he records it that way!" ...and I still do!

It turns out that Comfort now distributes the recent re-issue of all the Free Design albums on CD, in paper sleeves. Apparently all of the albums except "There Is A Song" have been reissued.

Message: 5 Date: Thu, 16 May 2002 07:51:16 -0400 From: Den Lindquist Subject: UK release of "Just The Right Sound: The Association Anthology" I was just about to spring for the Association Anthology when, a couple of weeks ago, David Ponak, in one of his Liquid Room recaps, lists the following playlist selection: The Association/Pandora's Golden Heebie Jeebies (instrumental Version) Just The Right Sound: The Association Anthology (bonus track on UK version) (WSM-UK) "Jeebies.." is one of my favorite Association songs, and, being a completist, I have to have it all, so, some questions: Does the UK version of "Just The Right Sound: The Association Anthology" have the same 51 tracks as the US release? Are there any other bonus tracks on the UK version? (I'm guessing WSM is Warner Special Markets..) Can anyone recommend a place, either on the 'Net or otherwise that have it? I'm in the U.S., and tried several outlets that usually carry "hard-to-find" things, but to no avail, so far. Please contact me off-list. Thanks. -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Outed on Spectropop! You're too kind, Ian..... OK, it's a fair cop, I was that engineer. TU's recordings were a natural follow-on from the things I did with Little Nell (Rocky Horror Show), in particular "See You Round Like A Record", "Stilettos And Lipstick" and "Do The Swim" (more known for the accompanying video blooper). I first hooked up with mild-mannered producer Peter Collins on a jingle session requiring an "I Get Around" soundalike track - just up my street. Pete usually left the sound to me and a bit of fine-tuning on the arrangement, while he concentrated on performance. All the early TU sessions were great fun, mostly recorded at SARM East (I liked the monitoring), a stone's throw from Brick Lane Market, which used to be great for old 45s. "Move Over Darling" was recorded at Olympic Studio 2. On the whole, Tracey was great to work with, efficient and co- operative, although she once got a bit shirty with me when she discovered I'd recorded another song called "Sunglasses [At Night]", which, coincidentally, I kept hearing an electronica version while I was on holiday recently.

Message: 12 Date: Thu, 16 May 2002 18:24:45 -0000 From: Jeff Limlich Subject: Re: The Fabulettes Mick Patrick wrote: > In the meantime, any chance of providing us girl group obsessives > with the complete Fabulettes line-up? Is there a photo of the girls > in the book? The Marvells/Fabulettes had a pretty stable line-up from 1963 until Annette Snell left in either late '68 or early '69: Annette Snell, Addie Williams, Mattie Lovett, Loretta Ludlow Unfortunately (with a big capital U there) Loretta's last name was misprinted in my book, which makes me cringe every time I see it. When Annette left to start her solo career, there was a pretty long procession of replacements. Two more records were cut, but let's face it -- how do you replace Annette Snell? The name change to the Fabulettes was instigated by the powers-that- be at Monument/Sound Stage 7. They still appeared in South Florida as the Marvells, since they were so well-known locally by that name. The Marvells and Laddins were both in Criteria Studios (with some members of James Brown's band) the day President Kennedy was assassinated. One of the tracks recorded that day, "Dizzy Jones Birdland", was released under both group names (Marvells and Laddins). Dizzy Jones managed the Marvells, and he co-owned a club called the Birdland with Little Willie John. When David Coleman left the Laddins, he was replaced by Florida deep soul goddess Frankie Gearing, and the group became the Steinways. The histories of the Marvells/Fabulettes and Laddins/Steinways are intertwined, and it's interesting to see the regard that their two powerhouse vocalists -- Annette Snell and Frankie Gearing -- are held in today. There is no photo of the Marvells in the book. I've only seen one very poor quality Fabulettes shot -- a photocopy of an ad for a show they played with another Northern soul icon, Bobby Paris.

Mick--you never fail to amaze. Ellie Greenwich and I produced a "cover" of one of the Soul Sisters' records, "I'm In The Mood", on Parrot Records with a little funk band we called The Daily News. Sure sounded vanilla next to theirs. Those girls could "holler". Rashkovsky -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Hi, I discovered recently that the name "Sandi Sheldon" was just one of the many aliases used by Kendra Spottswood of Tuff Records fame. And there was me telling everyone that I thought "Sandi" was probably Van McCoy himself, in female disguise! (That's not such a ridiculous theory, as those who have heard that lovely "girl group" record by the Fantastic Vantastics will attest). I guess it's safe to assume that "Kenni Woods" was another of Kendra's "aka"s? So, Dave, did she use any other names during her career? Perhaps Kendra herself would be interested in participating in a 'phone or email interview. Any chance? Mmmm, "Back With My Baby", GREAT record!
