Looks like a great track listing for Ripples 8! Number 7 still 
gets played every few days in this household. Glad to see another 
Consortium track made available too. They get my vote for one of 
the top British harmony groups ever. I like them because they retain 
the British sound... maybe its the mellotron? The Blinkers track is 
just a great driving beat/soul/harmony track.

As for "Mum & Dad", the comp Flight Recorder only mentions this 
track briefly by saying that the lyric was considered "non-daytime" 
and was effectively banned by the BBC. Why? Maybe I just can't 
understand the lyrics, but it sounds to me like all they are saying 
"Mum and Dad do stuff every day". Not trying to be naive, but the 
lyric just reminds me of "Wouldn't It Be Nice". The implication is 
even subtler in "Mum & Dad".

The track is written by Murray/Callendar. That is Mitch Murray, 
correct? Does anyone have any information about their writing 
partnership. Their material seems to have been offered to a variety 
of obscure bands like The Flies and other British pop bands of the 
later 60s.

"Three O'Clock Thrill" is cool. Dave -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Leonardo Flores PS If anybody from Spectropop came out to my club The 45 Club on Saturday at the Knitting Factory in Hollywood....Thanks! We had an excellent 200+ turn out and lots of great, both known and unknown, soul 45's were played. It was great to hear these records in one of the contexts that they were made for. I hope you had a fun time, Cheers, LF -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 4 Date: Tue, 28 May 2002 16:29:16 -0400 From: Will Stos Subject: Sylvia and the Sapphires/Carolines Thanks for info on the Mason sisters, Ian! Which leads me to put this out for discussion. Spectropop has chatted about It's My Party, Sylvia and the Sapphires, and now I'm about to go looking for the Jodelles. What are some other notable tributes groups that have recorded material? Do we have any kind of consensus on who has recreated the sound best? I know I love the cheeky stuff Rachel Sweet did, and the tracks For Real did as the Luminairies on the Grace of My Heart soundtrack was nice. What else is out there? Next up... I know "Can't Stop Lovin' The Boy," appeared on the Touch the Wall of Sound, but I've downloaded another song called "You're My Baby," by the group which is just wild! I think we established on Spectropop that this group recorded in 1967/1968. Any more new info anyone care to shed? Were these two sides of the same single? Who wrote/produced it? What label? I know Dave Marsh and Spectropoppers have said Reparata and the Delrons' "Nobody's Baby," was the last great girl group sounding single, but I think this has my vote.

Message: 5 Date: Tue, 28 May 2002 22:52:56 +0100 From: Mick Patrick Subject: Re: THE CAROLINES Hi, In answer to the question form Will Stos about THE CAROLINES: The two tracks concerned were released back-to-back on Roulette 4709 late in 1966. "Can't Stop Lovin' The Boy" was written by Larry Weiss and Tom Catalano. The B-side, "You're My Baby", was a solo Weiss composition. Both sides were arranged by Artie Butler and produced by Larry Weiss for Glamorous Productions. To my knowledge, the group released no other records. Although there was a British group of the same name active at around the same name. Just to save anyone the bother of posting "Your My Lovin' Baby" to musica, only to have it immediately deleted by an uberSpectropop- er, I'd like to point out that the track is contained on the CD "Run Mascara" (UK Sequel NEMCD 193).
