"I'm So Lonely" (aka "I'm Lonely") reached the top ten on WKNR in 
Detroit in 1964.

I can play it to musica if it's OK to do so (I'm mainly a 45s 
collector and am not always sure what's been legally reissued on CDs).

(it contains) > an unreleased Mann-Weil tune, "Oo-Wee Baby". Simon Bell: > "Oo-Wee Baby" was released as a single in the UK, after "Move > Over Darling"; I remember it well. Is this a different version? Welcome to Spectropop, Simon. The new Collectables CD claims that "Oo-Wee Baby" is previously unreleased. Wrong! It should have said unreleased in the USA. It's not a different version. The real selling point of this CD is the inclusion of the Chubby Checker-like Jack Nitzsche-arranged version of "Let The Little Girl Limbo", another Barry Mann/Cynthia Weil opus. This track is only otherwise available on the "Move Over Darling" box set on Bear Family, this bargain only 120 of our English pounds! Btw, your pal Katie Kissoon is beloved here on planet Spectropop. If you search the archives (I'd attempt telling you how to do that, but I suspect it would be like trying to teach one's granny how to suck an egg!) for the word Peanut, you'll discover that she has been the subject of 41 messages. Not all of them from me! See you at the Spectropop Party. MICK PATRICK -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Message: 4 Date: Sat, 20 Jul 2002 12:13:47 -0000 From: Paul Richards Subject: Love Generation CD/Ruthan Friedman I agree with David Ponak, what a great CD, full of brilliantly produced gems. I can't recommend it enough. Standouts for me include 'Montage' [of course] the poptastic 'You', 'Magic Land', 'Not be Found','Leaves grow grey','Love is a Rainy Sunday' & 'Let the Good Times In'. Wonderful music, perfect for the Summer. Changing the subject, does anyone know anything about Ruthan Friedman? I've got 2 songs written by her, 'Windy', of course, & a great popsike track called 'Candy Apple ,Cotton Candy' by Pat Shannon. Did she write any other great songs like these? She was quite young when she wrote them, I believe. -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
