Message: 2 Date: Thu, 06 Jun 2002 23:20:42 -0400 From: Mark Frumento Subject: Kenny Laguna Whoever recommended or posted info about Laguna Tunes gets an A+ in my book. I found a used copy on Amazon and I am well delighted with it. It's got to be the most diverse CD I've purchased in some time. Certainly "Dario (Can You Get Me Into Sudio 54)" has to rank as one of the great, late bubblegum tunes of all time? Now here's my question for anyone who knows Kenny or has met him: what's he like? I ask this because I found the liner notes very entertaining. Sometimes quite frank and even sarcastic, maybe even a tad bitter in places. Maybe I'm getting the wrong impression but this is almost certainly an interesting person? -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 3 Date: Fri, 07 Jun 2002 00:15:21 EDT From: Jimmy Crescitelli Subject: My Dad... Fluffy... Honey... Okay... I lose it during "My Dad..." I haven't heard "Fluffy." Is it about a dog? Or a cat? However... the one song that made me crazy for most of the year it was a hit was Bobby Goldsboro's "Honey". I know there's nothing redeeming about it, and it pushes all the wonk buttons and manipulates the listener's tear ducts to near dryness, but objectively-speaking... it does me in every time.

Message: 4 Date: Fri, 07 Jun 2002 00:41:54 -0400 From: Paul Payton Subject: Earl Sink; Roger Nichols; Buck Ram Noting David Ponak's professional association leads me to enquire regarding some interesting early 60's Warner Brothers product. Most specifically at the moment, a gentleman named Earl Sink with a great uptempo pop song, "Little Suzy Parker," possibly 1961 or so. Nice background vocals - a girl ground and some novelty stuff that works. Any info on him? Any more records on WB or elsewhere? Any albums or CD's? Similar style? From Matt Howell: > the limited edition CD of Roger Nicholls and the Small Circle of Friends... http://cdnow.com/switch/from=cr-9635397-1/target=buyweb_purchase/itemid=1493353 Yikes! Looks good, but must pass - not for the faint of wallet.... Things I Didn't Realize Dept.: Having just seen a picture of him for the first time, I never knew that Buck Ram (producer/writer/manager of the Platters) was white! Not that it makes a difference... Incidentally, it is posted on a page on the Penguins ("Earth Angel"), reached via the DooWop Society site http://electricearl.com/dws/ - seems the Penguins were lured away from Dooto[ne] to Mercury by Ram, who then abandoned them to concentrate on the Platters, of whom he owned a share. Ram certainly made quite an impact on the soft side of doo-wop. -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Thanks so much, believe it or not you just uncovered an age old mystery for me. Years back a friend had a cassette that I heard and it was an 80s girl group and I remembered hearing the Be My Baby drum intro and asked later on to borrow it and he gave me another cassette by another 80s girl group Sweet Sensation, well, the song I was after was not on there and he assured me that was the tape I had heard. I since have collected that type of 80s girl pop after really getting into Sweet Sensation but all these years I have wondered just what did I hear on cassette. As soon as I read your post I knew that I was not dreaming and I did hear the song you mentioned That Boy Of Mine. A quick search to Kazaa yeilded a hit. Thanks for solving an age old mystery for me.

Message: 6 Date: Thu, 06 Jun 2002 22:10:18 -0700 (PDT) From: Bill Reed Subject: RN & SCOF Matt Howell >Here is a link to the CD Now page for the limited edition CD > of Roger Nicholls and the Small Circle of Friends. I hope > this is what you're looking for: The problem with this release is that it is not the complete Small Circle. There is another CD still available in Japan that has seven more tracks than this one. This is the so-called limited edition Japanese format, meaning that it appeals to the fetish of some listeners from that nation who would rather have an EXACT replica of the original album rather than a version "defiled" by bonus tracks. Curiously, that CD Now link lists the arrangers as being Marty Paich and Van Dyke Parks. But as far as know Parks had little or nothing to do with the album, and Paich contributed only one or two arrangements. Instead, the lion's share of arrangments were done by Nick DeCaro, who himself performs that little airy filligree at the end of "Snow Queen," that prefigures that same La-a-a-a-ah hook on Carpenters' "Close to You" by more than a year.

(I know they were Americans but we thought of them as our own). Mushroom Studios, for anyone who has the pleasure to record there, is one of the most amazing sounding studios!

I suspect it > never will. I bought the "stand-alone" album in a sale and I think I saw other items from the box set at the same time so I suppose shops like HMV were just trying to cut their losses. "Lovers" is a curiosity: the Ronnie Spector autiobiography lists it as a 1965 recording (like the similar-sounding and equally curious "Oh I Love You"). Also, in Alan Betrock's "Girl Groups" book, she refers to the song as "Baby let's be lovers". Strange that no writer has been found, though. I wonder if Anders & Poncia or Harry Nilsson were involved. Paul -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 9 Date: Fri, 07 Jun 2002 13:50:38 -0000 From: Jack Fitzpatrick Subject: Faithful/Hopkins Hi all, I am just sitting here playing the Decca import Marianne Faithful CD which has eluded me until this afternoon. It hits me like a ton of bricks that Marianne would have been perfect for all the songs that went to Mary Hopkin, especially "Those were the Days", "Temma Harbour" etc.. Did Sir Paul ever consider recording these with her, or was she too far embroiled in the Rolling Stones lifestyle at the time. Anyway, there are great similarities between Ms Faithful and Ms Hopkin. Anyone else hear it? Love to hear from you on this. JF -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 10 Date: Fri, 07 Jun 2002 13:48:20 -0000 From: Jack Fitzpatrick Subject: Bobby Sheen/Bob B Soxx Tribute Hi Would like to challenge site members to DISCOVER the influence that Bobby Sheen and the Blossoms aka Bob B. Soxx and the Blue Jeans had on the industry following their hits "Zip a dee do-dah" and "Why Do Lovers Break Each Other's Hearts". Look for these singles and hear the influence: Swingin' on a star - Big Dee Irwin and Little Eva (Dimension 1010) Mockingbird - Charles and Inez Fox (Symbol 919) Mr Magic Moon - Gleams (Kapp 565) Anything you can do - Majors (Imperial x5914) But I do - Jewels (Dimension 1048) Timmy Boy - Timmy & Persianettes (Olympia 100) What makes little girls cry - Victorians (Liberty 55574) Hickory Dickory Dock - Baby Jane & Rockabyes (Spokane 4001) Book of Love - Raindrops (Jubilee single) Christmas Song/We wish you a merry - Irwin & Eva (Dimension 1021) These are probably but a small sampling of how that Bob B Soxx sound influenced an industry...investigate and enjoy. God Bless Bobby Sheen...we miss him. Regards JF -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

He sang with the group for a short while, then left to go solo. He was a talented guy, who deserved to be more than he was. Probably the hardest job in rock would have been to try to replace Buddy Holly. Your Friend, Mikey -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Also maybe Thunder Thighs [surely the best girl group name ever], The Paper Dolls and a young lady called Sharon Benson who had a nice little thing called "Get It Over With" produced by, I seem to remember, the people who did The Nolan Sisters, surely the greatest girl group in the history of the universe? -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 13 Date: Fri, 07 Jun 2002 14:22:47 -0000 From: Keith Beach Subject: Re: The Ronettes 'Lovers' I was with Mick Patrick on one occasion that he visited the Polygram (Polydor?) offices to discuss the planning and production of the vinyl box-set of Spector albums. The guy we met was running through the various track listings/packaging etc. as well as discussing what other material had been sent by Phil. There was a lot of 'bought in' material that was obviously not produced by Phil (The Brewers springs to mind - a Manhattan transfer type group) and was probably sent to fulfill contracts. Many of the tapes were very basically labelled, sometimes just an artist/title name and no other details. 'Lovers' was one of these. We were told that as they wanted to use the track on 'Ronettes Greatest II' they'd done their best to source the writers and publishing house, but had drawn a blank. I remember commenting at the time that perhaps they should have checked on 'Baby, let's be lovers' or 'Let's be lovers', as the information on the tapes was so unreliable. Of course now we can do this ourselves (via the internet) at BMI or ASCAP. But I've had no luck tracking down this song. Just in case it's never been mentioned before..."Girls Can Tell" was listed as by the Crystals on 'Rare Masters' because some Polydor minion assumed that's who it was - it was obvious to the rest of us it was really The Ronettes. Mick and I pointed this out to the guy at Polydor who seemed a little embarassed about it. We only later discovered that The Crystals had indeed also recorded the song (finally issued on Back to Mono box-set) Re Chiffons "Love Me Like You're Gonna Lose Me"/"Lovely La-De-Day" Do we know for a fact who wrote the Ronnie Spector "Lovely la-de- day"? I don't recall if writers credits were on the acetate. "I Love Him Like I Love My Very Life' was recorded at the same time and is a Toni Wine song, so is it an assumption that both songs are Toni Wine, in which case it seems strange to me that she would have written two songs that contain an almost identical phrase. Perhaps Ronnie's acetate was so labelled because someone misheard the phrase? "Love Me Laddy Day" is such a distinctive/poetic phrase...could it be an American children's thing (like "Iko Iko").

"I Love Him Like I Love My Very Life' was > recorded at the same time and is a Toni Wine song, so is it > an assumption that both songs are by Toni Wine, in which case > it seems strange to me that she would have written two songs > that contain an almost identical phrase. Perhaps Ronnie's > acetate was so labelled because someone misheard the phrase? No songwriters are credited on the acetate of Ronnie Spector's "Love Me La-de-day". However, back in 1971 Ronnie gave an interview in Melody Maker in which she referred to the song as "written by Phil with Toni Wine". It was that interview which sparked the rumour that that song and the Chiffons' "Love Me Like You're Gonna Lose Me" (which features the line "Love Me La-de-day" in the background and is another Toni Wine co- composition) were one and the same. All these years later we eventually find out that this is UNFORTUNATELY not the case. The Chiffons' "Love Me Like You're Gonna Lose Me" is a great song, wonderfully produced and beautifully performed. "Love Me La-de-day" by Ronnie Spector is NONE of those things. Yeah, I remember that day at Polydor, Keith. We must have been all of, what, fourteen years of age. The guy we met was Andrew Hoy. Didn't I arrive rather blemished? The result of getting trapped in the closing doors of a tube train. I think I'm still wearing that jacket. MICK PATRICK -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Message: 23 Date: Fri, 07 Jun 2002 21:04:04 +0000 From: Spector Collector Subject: Golden-voiced "Hairspray" Phil mentioned that whoever sings lead on the Web versions of the "Hairspray" songs nails Ronnie's "woh-oh-oh" perfectly. She's had practice: Annie Golden, former lead singer of The Shirts, sang the Ronettes songs in the original Broadway production of "Leader of the Pack," so it's her voice you hear on the cast recording. She also did a girl-groupy song "Hang Up the Phone" on the soundtrack to the movie "Sixteen Candles." (The songs on the Web site feature singers other than those in the cast, so are probably demos from the show's early days. It should be safe to assume that the cast's versions will be on the Sony release.) David A. Young -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
