I highly reccomend them! They have released fine 2 CD-Singles and a 
excellent album called "Can I Get To Know You Better" where they do a 
great cover of that Sloan/Barri classic plus the Rag Dolls "Dusty" 
and the McKinleys "Someone Cares For Me". They sound like 60's east 
coast girl groups like the Angels or Delrons - fine with me!

They have a Mp3.com page at 
http://artists.mp3s.com/artists/154/its_my_party.html
Be sure to check out or download the track "Cant".

They also have another track to download, "That Boy John" on 
http://www.iuma.com

Well, Kay Star had #1 with "Wheel of Fortune" in 1952, but I'll have to go with Patti Page and "Tennessee Waltz" in 1950 (covered by Les Paul).

Message: 4 Date: Sat, 25 May 2002 16:32:00 -0700 From: Michael Godin Subject: Paul Evans Hi Folks, Re: Kalin Twins This great hit song was written by Paul Evans, who I remain in contact with via my radio show Treasure Island Oldies. Among other songs he wrote include "Roses Are Red, My Love" for Bobby Vinton, "I Gotta Know" for Elvis, and of course, his own big hits "Seven Little Girls (Sitting In The Back Seat)", "Happy Go Lucky Me" and others. He also wrote "Happiness Is", one of the most successful advertising campaigns in TV and Radio history. He sent me a brand new album that has just been released: "Roses Are Red, My Love" is the title. This new album includes his own version of "Roses Are Red, My Love" as well as a new contemporary version of "When", the massive hit he wrote for the Kalins. You could get more info on the new album from Paul's website at http://www.paulevans.com Cheers!

Message: 5 Date: Sun, 26 May 2002 03:59:46 +0100 From: Phil Chapman Subject: I Had A Dream Recent talk of Diane Renay prompts me to ask about "I Had A Dream", one of my favourites. It doesn't seem to show on any CD comp, or bootleg for that matter. Yet it is, IMHO, one of her best. A clattering Crewe rhythm track, good tune, wall-to-wall backing vocals, a fine performance from Diane culminating in a molybdenum-splitting note that will see off your finest crystal, and send the neighbourhood dogs running for shelter. Now I suppose I should play it to musica.....enjoy. Couple of questions for the experts - Who are the backing vocals, they sound familiar, and who is the male 'preacher' vocal that says "Do you take this girl to be your wife?"

They seem to have several Everly like tracks. Well after listening again, I'd confirm their best track is still "When" but the CD is far from being uninteresting, funnily enough I find their covers of other singers hits more interesting than most of the original numbers. I particularly liked their version of the Bobby Veeish Joe Brown hit : "A Picture of You" and of The Eddie Hodges song: "I'm Gonna Knock On Your Door". They also do "Bye Bye Blackbird", "True Love", "Zing Went The String of My Heart", ... Frank -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 8 Date: Sun, 26 May 2002 10:42:12 +0100 From: Mick Patrick Subject: re: MULTI-TRACKING / MULTI-IDENTITIES / PATTI PAGE Hi, Credit where credit is due. The queen, and possible instigator, of the dual-tracked vocal was PATTI PAGE. The legendary singer also fits quite neatly into our recent multiple identity thread. Plucked from my molybdenum bin, here are a few paragraphs what I wrote earlier: Patti Page, "The Singing Rage", is one of the biggest selling recording stars of all time. With hits spanning the late-'40s through to the early-'80s, her total record sales are in excess of 100 million. Not bad for an Okie from Muskogee who fell into a career in music by accident. Born Clara Ann Fowler in Oklahoma in 1927, it was as a hopeful graphic artist that she approached Tulsa radio station KTUL for a summer job in the early-'40s. Instead they offered her a job as a singer. She broadcast billed as both Ann Fowler and Ann Foster before the star of the "Meet Patti Page Show" resigned and the station gave Clara Ann the vacant post. To oblige the show's sponsors, the Page Milk Company, her name was changed to suit. She signed with Mercury in 1946 and never looked back. Patti's fist hit, "Confess", was a pioneering adventure in the art of over- dubbing, following which multi-tracked vocals became her trade- mark. Before long she had scored #1s with "All My Love", "Tennessee Waltz" (a 10 million selling pop-to-country crossover sensation), "I Went To Your Wedding" and "(How Much Is That) Doggie In The Window". Smash hits continued with "Let Me Go, Lover!", "Allegheny Moon", "Old Cape Cod" and "Left Right Out Of Your Heart". Patti switched to the Columbia label in 1963 and was soon back in the Top 10 with "Hush, Hush, Sweet Charlotte", the theme song to the Bette Davis movie. Her most recent big seller was the 1981 Country charter "No Aces". In 1999 Patti Page found herself back in the limelight by proxy when her 1957 classic "Old Cape Cod" was sampled by Groove Armada for their hit "On The Beach".

Message: 9 Date: Sun, 26 May 2002 20:57:17 +1000 From: Geoff Mullins Subject: Red Bird /Blue Cat Licensing I have often wondered where the ownership of the Red Bird/Blue Cat material now lies. I read somewhere ages ago that when George Goldner sold the label, the deal was split between Shelby Singelton and Atlantic. I then read later on that the Atlantic part of the deal never actually went through. Does Charly now own the rights to the entire catalogue from Red Bird 10-001 to 10-083 and to Blue Cat BC-129. In the notes for the Charly release "Legendary Record Labels" it is stated that George sold Red Bird and Blue Cat masters to different companies. If this is the case, would the rights go with these sales. I am also not clear that if Charly now own the rights to the entire back catalogue, would they also own the rights to the rarer tracks such as Red Bird 10-062 The Silence with "Hey You Lolita". Can someone please advise whether there is a Red Bird Sound Volume 5 planned via Diamond Recordings. Volume 4 was released in 1998. I cannot track Diamond on the net anywhere. -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Info none - besides label credits. Martin you are a man of taste. Out of interest, I witnessed last night, along with other interested parties, a live performance by Ms Rosetta Hightower, at the North London venue "The Rocket". She sang a couple of her Northern Soul favourites with The Orlons, namely [the hits, not The Orlons], "Once Upon A Time", "Spinnin' Top", "Envy (In my Eyes)" and...... errr............ [the brain's gone, sleep deprevation kicking in. I didnt leave the venue until 7 am] Anyway, as I had the privilege of doing the first DJ spot of the night, I thought I would keep it to all girl stuff, with a couple of exceptions, but one is a Princess, and the other is an instrumental, so it's possible there were girls present. I've reproduced the playlist below. The next Rocket is, as always, on the last Saturday of the month, July 29th, and will have live on stage Sandi Sheldon (aka Kenni Woods).

Laguna was the coproducer along with Beserkley mainstays Glen Kolotkin and Matthew King Kaufman. Kenny had ended up in San Francisco in 1972 while a road musician for Tommy James & The Shondells, and he produced several albums for Beserkley during the 70's. The LAGUNA TUNES CD also contains one of his coproductions - again with Kolotkin and Kaufman - for the Beserkley supergroup Spitballs ("Let Her Dance" featuring members of Earth Quake, The Greg Kihn Band, The Rubinoos, and Jonathan Richman). Earth Quake is also the band on "Gilligan's Island (Stairway)", and they recorded the track at The Who's Ramport Studios in London with Little Roger Clark later adding his vocal in San Francisco.

You can definitely hear Barbara Harris' soaring soprano. For those have have heard Diane's version of "See How They Run", do the Toys make an appearance there too? Also, for girl group experts... Who are Sylvia and the Sapphires who sang "Shopping Around"? It sounds like the best Crystals take- off ever, but the instrumentation sounds too modern to be from the 60s. The 70s or 80s maybe? Still, the vocals and lyrics are a great tribute to the girl group era. Was this, like It's My Party, a tribute group? Was this from a movie soundtrack?

There are reportedly only 22 copies of this record around in the hands of collectors, but if anyone was to have a copy (or a burn, or an mp3 - anything!), it would be someone on this list. :-) Also does anyone have a discography for Don Grady's 1964-66 45's on Capitol and Challenge? I know about Capitol 4632 "One Good Turn Deserves Another"/"It's Better This Way" from 1964, but there is at least one other Capitol 45 (my reference shows he recorded 45's for Capitol in 1964-65, and for Challenge in 1966).

Hi, Jimmy, Darlene Love told me personally that she DID sing lead on "He's A Rebel" by Moose & the Pelicans. Kenny Laguna was her manager at the time . . . "I told Kenny, I didn't wanna be Moose, let me be one of the Pelicans, but not Moose!". Only those with molybdenum in their ears could fail to recognise her on this record.
