I'm not sure if Rev-Ola still really existed in name via Poptones. 
I guess that Joe Foster was largely responsible for the 'From the 
vaults' series released by Poptones. I'm not sure what's prompted 
the change but Rev-Ola will now indeed be a lable operating through 
Cherry Red rather than Poptones. The first 4 releases are 2 albums 
by Ivor Cutler, the highly-prized Eternity's Children set and the 
1969 Thomas & Richard Frost "Visualise" album. Thank you Joe and 
all at Cherry Red. Let the sunshine through.

Message: 2 Date: Mon, 15 Jul 2002 10:17:58 -0400 From: Mikey Subject: Re: Doris Day The 60s Singles I ended up with an Extra Doris Day "The 60s Singles Cd". If anybody needs one, let me know. Your Friend, Mikey Admin Note: This CD contains A Jack Nitzsche-arranged version of Doris Day's rockin' rarity "Let The Little Girl Limbo". It's a totally different version to that contained on her "Golden Girl" 2CD of a few years back. We thought y'all should be aware.

Message: 3 Date: Mon, 15 Jul 2002 11:01:31 -0400 From: Country Paul Subject: Brian Wilson's "Smile"? tour / Peggy Powers A friend in another discussion group centered on Brian Wilson told me he read that Wilson would tour next summer with a tour of the end-to-end "real" "Smile" album in much the same way as he did with "Pet Sounds." Any truth to this delicious rumour? I had a very strange dream last night - I was driving somewhere, and a woman was hitchhiking by the side of the road, talking to someone. I recognized her as Peggy Powers, the vocalist duetting with Andy Williams on "I Like Your Kind of Love" [Cadence, 1957], by the way she said "good" - the same way as on the record. (I told you it was a strange dream!) I always thought of her as a girl-bext-door type, probably blonde, pixie haircut, and blessed with underling raging estrogen. (Check out "baby, that's good" on the record, not to mention the "uh-huh"s.) The serious question: does anyone know anything about her - bio, further recordings, etc.? My web-search only comes up with name references including Both Side Now's excellent Cadence story and discography; an out-of-print cast album for a musical, "Three Billion Millionaires" from 1963 (name listed, no info at; and a listing for a guy selling old US men's magazines (there's Peggy Powers in the Feb. 1973 issue of Cavalier - - but I doubt she'd be the object of this query). There are also various others, including a cooking expert, a church organist, and a marathon runner. Again, help please, anyone?

Message: 4 Date: Mon, 15 Jul 2002 14:18:29 EDT From: Matthew Subject: Mojo Collections vs. Mojo Here is a quick public services announcement. It seems that after six issues Mojo Collections has ceased publication, which is a damn shame because it was a fine magazine. If you had a subscription to it as I did it seems that they have shifted over the number of remaining issues that they owed you to the regular Mojo Magazine. Now here is the problem if you subscribed to both Mojo and Mojo Collections you end up with two copies of Mojo every month. I actually received two copies of the last two issues of Mojo and decided to call over and ask why. So if you have been getting double issues you need to call Mojo subscription department and ask them to put the remaining issues of Mojo Collections at the end of your regular Mojo subscription or else you will not be credited correctly. Matthew ps: I have sent this e-mail to each of the mailing lists that I am that I felt that it would be relevant to, sorry for the redundancy to those on multiple lists. Admin Note: Good tip, Matthew. There are sure to be Mojo subscribers among the Spectropop membership. Thanks, The spectropop Team. -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
