Subject: Jaynettes

Anybody out there know of place to get a clean version of the 
Jaynettes "Snowman, Snowman, Sweet Potato Nose"?  I've already 
got a "mint" copy of the 45, but it's kind of pointless, since 
the Jaynettes records on Tuff all sound like they're pressed 
on asphalt or something.

I think I saw it on a CD with a bunch of rare Christmas songs 
on it that I assume was a bootleg.  If anyone has that, could 
you let me know the quality on it?

Any help would be appreciated.

Wouldn't this pretty much put the issue to rest? Thanks, Dan -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

The same thing happened to me with Nooney Rickett. I contacted him through his manager, and he sent me a big package with some old 8 X 10 photos... and then followed that up with a phone call!

Must've been listening to too much Spencer Davis Group when I was composing the post :-). At least the line "I can't stand it" does follow the title in the song's lyrics, so I'm not completely losing it. And, yes, you're probably right about it being a better song because of Alan's involvement. While Gordon has written many fine songs by himself, the same cannot be said about Bonner.

I dig that Parrots single (Mala 558). "Hey, Put The Clock Back On The Wall" is pretty well-known, since other artists covered it ... but I love the bizarro flip, "They All Got Carried Away"! Hard to believe, but "Carried Away" was actually the A side... Jeff Lemlich http://www.limestonerecords.com -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Hi Doug, Sorry I can't be of help with a clean copy of the song. According to John Clemente's book the master tapes are all locked up somewhere because there are lawsuits over who owns them. It would be great to find a compilation of their best stuff though. They sure recorded enough!
