Subject: Re: Franklin Castle

David Ponak, nice work with the Mello Cads -
http://www.franklincastle.net/mcads.html. "Soapland" and "As For 
Tonight" (who's the girl singer? Term used advisedly) really do it 
for me, especially "...Tonight."

But what a pleasant surprise - Franklin Castle www.franklincastle.net 
is a goldmine for Spectropoppers. Margo Guryan is represented by two 
albums (I confess to having only heard her in passing before); Linus 
of Hollywood has been listening to his Beach Boys Records, and Kim 
Fox's demos have charm, especially "Feel Like Cryin'".

I don't want to turn this into an unpaid commercial, especially since 
I don't get anything out of it (except musical satisfaction), but 
music we like is alive and well. Thanks for the two turn-ons, David - 
your music and this site.

Country Paul

What a great playlist! "Snow Queen" and "Rosecrans Blvd"-- terrific. Gene Sculatti Director of Special Issues, Billboard magazine -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Can I add to the list The Soul Brothers on Blue Cat ("Keep It Up" was the song - a paso doble r&b track!).

Are these the same Laddins from New York (featuring Bobby Jay on bass) who did the NYC doowop fave "Yes, Oh Baby Yes"? David Ponak: from the Liquid Room Playlist - "Brian Wilson/Marketplace, The Andy Paley Sessions." I definitely missed this; more details, please? You also played an all time fave, Roger Nichols & The Small Circle Of Friends/Snow Queen. Way to go! After our Joey Reymolds discussion, a couple of mega-DJ's of the 60's and 70's, Cousin Bruce Morrow and the amazing Dan Ingram, were interviewed on the past two Wednesdays by Glenn Jones on WFMU. The interviews are archived at www.wfmu.org. Country Paul -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Herman Grimes is from St. Louis. I have 2 other 45s by him on small St. Louis labels. One label is Bootheel Records. This is named after an area of Missouri known as the bootheel ...if you look at the state, it's the lower south east area that looks like a boot heel. The title of that release on Bootheel is "That's Just Half The Story". Don't remember the title of the other. All the records, even his Red Bird releases, had the same producers.

Message: 6 Date: Fri, 17 May 2002 14:04:59 -0000 From: Stephen McParland Subject: More on the Pirouettes [from the Spectropop Bulletin Board] http://www.escribe.com/music/spectropop/bb/index.html Years ago I picked up (for a song!), a one-sided 7" flexi disc called "The Wrangler Shake". The credits listed: Vocal by Joyce Williams (B-Elgin-N.Meade). The 45 came in a thin cardboard sleeve which opens up and features an advert for Wrangler jeans. The front boasts: "New from the U.S.A. - Dance The Wrangler Shake - the latest top-hit from the U.S.A.! Named after the most popular jeans - Wrangler Jeans!" The back features the dance steps to the "Wrangler Shake". Interestingly, the copy I have seems to emanate from "Blue Bell Belgium" 54 rue du Brabant straat 64, Brussels 3. Perhaps "Joyce Williams" is also "The Pirouettes"? -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Mmmm, "Back With My Baby", GREAT record! Yes she will be glad to participate in the interview. Sandi Sheldon *was* also known as Kenni Woods a.k.a Kendra Spottswood.
