   From: Ron 
Subject: Re: 2 of Clubs

The 2 of Clubs had at least three local hits here in the Cincinnati 
area.  The first was "Heart", the Petula Clark song.  "Walk Tall" was 
the follow up.  The third was "River Deep, Mountain High".  I am 
aware of at least one other record but not the name.  I'm at work so 
I don't have flip side information.

Ron

I've never seen any of these on CD releases, although some may be in the "grey market". I can put "Heart" or "River Deep.." out to musica, if anyone wants to hear it.

That would likely be Tony Alamo, a Nashville-based underground pop star, cult guru and Western suit designer par excellence. The guy may be full of it, but he has never lacked for imagination, nor chutzpah. I haven't stopped to check but I imagine there's plenty about him on the Web for those that are interested. --Phil Milstein -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Alison Krauss and Patty Loveless. Anyone wish to offer anything > back on this musical crisis. Not a crisis at all, Mike. Virtually all I listened to in the late '80's was country. I, like you, wander all over the musical landscape, just recently realizing that I don't choose the music I like, but it chooses me. (Sit me in a room with rap, opera, or heavy metal, and I won't ever choose, to like it). I stopped trying to figure it out, (sometimes even get a little embarrassed at what I'm listening to and liking), and just go with what my ears are smiling at that day... John (Try Charly McClain's 2 cd anthology, she sings sweet too). (Girl groups still one of my favorites, though.) -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 6 Date: Sat, 13 Jul 2002 22:03:01 EDT From: Bill George Subject: Ian Thomas This isn't quite Spectropop, but does anyone have any info on a Canadian singer named Ian Thomas? In the 70s, he had a minor hit in the US called "Painted Ladies." I have one LP by him as well, but I know virtually nothing about him. Is he still around? Did he release many records? The music I know is in a rather Neil Young-ish vein, but he may have recorded other styles as well. Bill -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

The words 'mad' and '*?!*@*!*?' spring readily > to mind. Great record though. My copy of the Allen Sisters' "Dream Boy" on Quality 1807 has "Devil To Angel" on the B-side, not "Downtown Crowd". I suppose that means it's not worth 400 quid!? B#ll#cks! By the way, Simon, I spotted no Tiny Tim track on your Saturday playlist. Wassup, gone off him? I recommend "Little Girl", his Blue Cat 45. Thanks to Den for the 2 Of Clubs discography. FYI, the B-side of Fraternity 999 is "How Can I Be Happy". The song was written by group member Linda Parrish and her husband Carl Edmondson, leader of another Fraternity act, the Dolphins. Linda's partner in the 2 Of Clubs was Patti Valantine.
