Hi Jan, Mick

Very interesting - I've been trying to research the Detroit based
Marquee label which issued some Buena Vistas singles.

There's some sort of tie-in with the final version of the Rockin'
Rebels on Swan as some of the Rockin' Rebels final Swan sides are co-
written by Nick Ameno and Carl Cisco who seems to be members of the 
Buena Vistas.

There's also a tie-in with The LaSalles who had one single on Motown's
VIP label "La La La La La" / "This Is True" - the b-side was
produced by Carl Cisco, the A-side was a Clarence Paul production
of a song he'd earlier recorded on Stevie Wonder.

There's also a LaSalle label which seems to be a subsidiary of

Does anyone have a lineup for the Buena Vistas ?

Davie Gordon

I'll leave it there for a few days then take it down. Ron, would you email me that file directly? I can't download fast enough on my dialup modem to complete the job before yahoogroups cuts me off. thanks, jack -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 3 Date: Sat, 06 Jul 2002 18:12:52 +0100 From: Mick Patrick Subject: Re: KATHY LYNN vs CATHY LYNN Hi, KATHY LYNN, real name Kathleen Mary Keppen according to BMI, co-wrote numerous songs for Kathy Lynn & the Playboys and the Buena Vistas, actually the same group. Most of her compositions were in partnership with fellow group members Carl Cisco and David Nicholas Ameno. Marsha Brody's producer CATHY LYNN, real name Cathy Faust according to BMI, was a prolific songwriter. None of her songs were cut by Kathy Lynn & the Playboys or the Buena Vistas, and she wrote none with members of those groups. However, she does warrant some coverage on Spectropop, having composed such famous hits as "The Angels Listened In", #22 on the Hot 100 in 1959 for the Crests, the Chordettes' 1957 top-tenner "Just Between You And Me" and "The Shape I'm In" by dreamboat teenage muscleman Johnny Restivo. Cathy penned numbers with such big names as Phil "Twist & Shout" Medley and Otis Blackwell. My conclusion is that Kathy Lynn and Cathy Lynn are two different persons.

Are you refering to the Gerry & The Pacemakers hit (Marsden wrote that one, according to my LP label) or a different song with the same title? -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Message: 6 Date: Sat, 06 Jul 2002 12:35:34 -0600 From: Rex Strother Subject: The Covers Project If you didn't get a chance to hear the NPR story, a fellow named Chris has built a website for logging and tracking the "cover" versions of all songs - to create giant chains of cover versions from one artist to the next (in the vein of Seven Degrees of Separation). His site is at and seemed like a natural port of interest for Spectropoppin' daddies. A lot of current artists are represented; let's help him make sure the 60s are well represented.

Every time I think I've located it, I > find it's Gerry Marsden for fox sake!! reply: > Didn't Gerry Marsden compose " Don't Let The Sun Catch You Crying" ? Bobby Darin wrote " I'll Be There". Needless to say, although Gerry had the hit, Bobby's version is brilliant! Norman -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Message: 10 Date: Sun, 07 Jul 2002 00:32:35 -0000 From: Will Stos Subject: Bernadette Carroll "The Hero" Two things: When was "The Hero" by Bernadette Carroll released, and did it get any airplay? I just heard it for the first time on Spectropop GG Radio at Live 365 and laughed myself silly. Was she trying to act so badly? She almost sounds happy to see Johnny dead! "Oh no, Johnny, no" Boo-hoo! I'm trying to figure out if this was a genuine attempt at Shangri-las style teenage heartbreak or something recorded as a joke. Also, I see that GG radio is under Billy J's account. Does Spectropop collectively own this and the main radio station? I was reading that new fees were coming into effect starting Aug. 2 and I'm wondering if you need financial help to cover the new $5/month charge to all accounts.

Message: 11 Date: Sat, 06 Jul 2002 22:09:52 -0700 (Pacific Daylight Time) From: Diana Hall Subject: Doris Day: The 1960s Singles Just a quick note to highly recommend the new Collectables realease, "Doris Day: The 1960s Singles". What a treat for Spectropop fans! The highlight is the wonderful arrangement of "Move Over Darling" by Jack Nitzsche. Jack also arranged 3 other cuts on the CD including "Twinkle Lullaby", "Rainbow's End" and a highly enjoyable Mann-Weill song "Let the Little Girl Limbo" that has never been issued. Other interesting cuts include "Falling" co-written by Bruce Johnstown as well as a Bacharach-David movie tune, "Send Me No Flowers" as well as another unreleased Mann-Weill tune "Oo-Wee Baby". I'm sure Terry Melcher probably produced some of these cuts. There are no producer credits ... just who handled the arrangements. Other nice cuts include "Anyway the Wind Blows", "Please Don't Eat the Daisies", "Do Not Disturb" and others. -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 12 Date: Sun, 07 Jul 2002 05:13:04 -0000 From: Bill Reed Subject: Re: Jan and Dean Biography Yes, this is brand new from Peter Jones Productions. A company with which I am associated, Producers Library Service, supplied recently discovered, never before seen perfomance and backstage footage of J&D to the production. Also new is the E True Hollywood Story tonight (the 7th), a two hour Beach Boys docu. I am not certain whether Brian Gari is a member of this list, but is familiar with it. He was a consultant for the production, conducted some of the interviews AND music from his brand new , first-rate Brian Gari Sings Brian Wilson is heard on the soundtrack.
