Word is that the remastered CDs will NOT include ANY bonus tracks 
whatsoever. Furthermore, the new CDs will ONLY be available in stereo.  

And...ABKCO will be releasing all the U.S. and U.K. albums separately,
meaning that consumers will have to buy a second CD just to get one or 
two additional songs.

This strategy might have actually made sense if ABKCO used the original
U.S. and U.K. mixes for the respective CDs....but that's not going to
happen either.  Both CDs will contain the same mixes (and in some cases
those mixes aren't even the same as *either* original album mix!)

Oh, and did I mention that there will be NO liner notes?

What a disappointment. Although I can't really say I'm surprised -- 
this *is* Allen Klein's handiwork, after all.

Message: 3 Date: Tue, 25 Jun 2002 23:40:51 +0100 From: Mick Patrick Subject: SUZI JANE HOKUM Hi, Thanks to everyone who responded to my request for pictures and information on the Daughters Of Eve. Especially to Clark Besch. I'm now on another quest. My pal Rob Finnis, hard at work on a Lee Hazlewood CD, 'phoned me yesterday in search of information about SUZI JANE HOKUM. What was her relationship with Mr Hazlewood? Is she, pehaps, the same person as Susie Dickerson on Trey? I couldn't help him answer these questions. Can you?

Message: 4 Date: Wed, 26 Jun 2002 00:54:19 -0000 From: Leonardo Flores Subject: Re: Capitol, from M Wirtz/New Voice Mysteries Hello All, > I think someone asked you this before - what USA label released > "Teenage Opera" and were any of the later singles like "Sam" > (my favorite) released here? Both "Teenage Opera" and Tomorrow's "White Bicycle" were released on Bob Crewe's 'New Voice' label, Catalog # 825 and 827 repectively. The "Teenage Opera" single is not to difficult to locate but I have never seen "White Bicyle" 45 even offered up for sale, and I believe the rarest release on the label. I guess this all ties in with why the single wasn't a huge hit in the US, they didn't make that many of them! Also this was during the end of the label (228 is Mitch Ryder, 229 has no artist - perhaps "Sam", Hey Mark, do you know the answer to this mystery??!!Let me know!! - and 830 is the last 45 on the label which is another Mitch Ryder 45), so things were winding down for the label. Shame on me, answering questions only makes more questions! Cheers All, Leonardo Flores "Uplandmod" PS For any of the Spectropoppers who headed out to my club The 45 Club here in Hollywood CA thanks for coming out and making our second night a night to remember. We had a soulful 250+ turnout and lots and lots of great rare 45s were played for all, Thanks again, Let's Keep This Soul Party Going LF -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

And does this mean > that Mike Love is attempting to hegemonize yet another group name? Uhh..wasn't that Hunts Hall? Heinz and Hunts are two completely different catsups. (really bad food pun, huh...) Y'know, the Pittsburgh Pops conductor is none other than Marvin Hamlisch...maybe I aughta suggest that he bring Lesley Gore to town to sing his hits, "Sunshine, Lollipops and Rainbows," as well as my fave, "California Nights." Greg, who pronounces it ketchup... -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
