Subject: Forthcoming Stephen McParland Books

Just heard from Stephen last night.  He's got some new books 
coming out that many of us will be interested in.  He writes:

*	ALL AMERICAN BOYS - The Walker Bros. Genesis
*	HODADS, GREMMIES, NOTES & QUOTES (comp of some of my 
	liner notes, etc)
*	SOUND WAVES & TRACTION Vol.1 and Vol.2 (Surf and hot-rod 
	Studio Groups Of the '60s)

Waiting for the proofers to finish and the photo pages to be 

First book off the ranks will probably be the HODADS tome, 
followed by SW&T Vol. 1, AAB and SW&T Vol.2

Ron again:
As always, you can get information about any of Stephen's books

Great rockin' girl-group sound! Only one > 45 [London, 1965?], or were there more? Hi Paul, Terry & her Tunisians' "The Street" was released in 1963 on the Seville label, recording home of Marcie Blane. The 45's B-side "Tom Tom" is even better. Are jungle drums, insomnia and insanity suitable topics for s girl group song? Yes, yes, YES! "Tom Tom" was written by Henry Hoffman and Gary Klein and produced by Marvin Holtzman, the very same team which brainstormed Miss Blane's "Bobby's Girl" in 1962. Fresh from that conquest, Holtzman was despatched to England where he produced the first single by legendary Coventry girl group, the one and only Orchids. The group went on to be produced by Shel Talmy, Bert Berns and Andrew Loog Oldham. Yamma, yamma! MICK PATRICK -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Hi Mikey, Sorry, it's against Spectropop policy to post to musica tracks which are available on commercial CD. Musica is specifically for rare or obscure recordings. But worry not. Both tracks are easy to get on CD. "The Street", as I have pointed out previously, is contained on the CD "Early Girls, Volume 2" (Ace CDCHD 657). "Tom Tom" is one of sixty cuts featured on the 3CD "Chapel Of Love" set (Castle/Pulse PBXCD 353). The latter item is a bit of a bargain at under 9ukp. If, like me, you appreciate the sound of teenagers on the verge of a nervous breakdown, a la Shangs or Reparata, "Tom Tom" is for you.
