Bobby Jameson's recording of "I'm So Lonely" on the Talamo label 
is simply fantastic!  I feel very fortunate to have it in my huge 
record collection, which I began way back in the 1950's. Bobby 
sang the song with a lot of angst. It was a dramatic kind of song.  
I remember that he appeared on a show - most likely "American 
Bandstand" - to perform, or perhaps I should say to lip-synch, 
the song.

I have been reading through the archives, playing catch-up. It is clear that this is a great group for those of us who love 50's and 60's music, Spector's work, girl groups, Beach Boys, etc. Since many of you have listed some of your favorite songs, I would take this opportunity to post a list of songs I love, but there are so many songs I could put on a list like this that it is hard to pare it down. Anyway, here are some songs I really love to listen to: "When I Grow Up (To Be A Man)" - Beach Boys "All Strung Out" - Nino Tempo and April Stevens "I Wanna Love Him So Bad" - Jellybeans "A Banda" and "Casino Royale" - Herb Alpert and the TJB "Keep In Touch" - Georgia Gibbs (a very sultry rendition) "The Little Old Lady From Pasadena" - Jan and Dean "Shades of Gray" - The Monkees "Making Love From Memory" - Loretta Lynn (stunning song - on MCA, I think) "All I Really Want To Do" - Cher (very Byrds-like) "Just You" - Sonny & Cher (gorgeous--Sonny was not the best singer on earth, but on this song, his singing was very effective) "Baby, I Love You" - Ronettes "Twelve-Thirty" - Mamas & Papas "Heaven Only Knows" - Shangri-las "Is It True?" Brenda Lee ( a real rocker, not a c&w # at all) "Faraway Star" - Chordettes "Look Of Love" - Lesley Gore "You Don't Own Me" - Lesley Gore "(Won't You) Marry Me Again?" - April Stevens (on A&M) "I Love How You Love Me" - Nino Tempo and April Stevens (the combination of the great vocal harmonies and the very unusual addition of the bagpipes really does work to create a fascinating song) "I Love How You Love Me" - Paris Sisters (very pretty, and so different than the Tempo-Stevens version) "Mr. Tambourine Man" - The Byrds "All I See Is You" - Dusty Springfield (Anyone thinking she had a limited vocal range needs to listen to this spectacular song. It is very nearly operatic) -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Mac Kissoon was, and indeed still is Katie's brother. He and I sing together in the choir of the James Last Orchestra. Katie sang with us there until very recently when obligations to the likes of Eric Clapton & Robbie Williams got in the way.

"Oo-wee Baby" was released as a single in the UK, after "Move Over Darling"; I remember it well. Is this a different version?
