Funnily enough, a friend and I were just wondering whatever became 
of Judy Dyble last week.  I know she was briefly in an early lineup 
of King Crimson after Fairport (the version of "I Talk to the Wind" 
with Judy singing is simply marvelous), but was there anything after that?

Message: 2 Date: Fri, 02 Aug 2002 20:53:09 +0100 From: Joe Foster Subject: Blades and Children No, there is no link between The Children (or at least not these Children - but that's another story...) and Eternity's Children. The Children were from Texas, were managed by Lelan Rogers, and featured my old friend Cassell Webb, who not only had one of the most beautiful voices I've ever heard, but is a lovely lady, and freely admitted to much wearing of white Go-Go boots whilst in the Children. I believe they also did some stuff for A&M, though these may have been Cassell solos. She also made a great album in the early 1980s on I think Statik(?) Records, which I'll have to dig up. Re the Blades Of Grass - they did indeed make an album, and pretty good it is too. Thanks to Spectropoppers Phil Chapman, Steve Stanley and Jeffrey Glenn for finding the missing tracks. Everything else is on mastertape, but these songs went west during the transfer from the offices of the Records to Abbey Road. Speaking of which, I've always been fascinated by Tico Records too and don't really know a darn thing about them apart from the Goldner input and a few precious records I have - so let's hear more!!! Oh, and......still no Marshall Lieb experts, huh? all the best Joe -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 3 Date: Fri, 02 Aug 2002 20:40:33 -0000 From: JP Subject: Lesley Gore Hi Folks, I am new to the group so this is my first posting. I am looking for some information on an article on Lesley Gore that was written by the Village Voice magazine around 1976 in April or May. It was preceded one month earlier or followed one month later by an article about Janis Ian. Contents on the article pertained to Ms. Gore's life in TX while attending some classes at SMU and her performances there. Some mention was made of her career plans and her personal life which I am not interested in. Also, having just returned from Dallas, TX to NY after 13 years, I have met several women who claimed to have attended school with Lesley at SMU in the early 70s. I would appreciate anyone who knew Lesley contacting me as I am co-writing a book on Ms. Gore and have agreed to give her full editing privileges. Thanks for any help. PS - What is Spector doing now?

Bob Rashkow wrote: > The Children on ATCO (which I have yet to hear and would love > to) are not the same group as Eternity's Children. According to their website, Gear Fab, the folks who brought us the Bard's "Moses Lake Recordings" among others, have released the Children's "Rebirth" album with bonus tracks. Here's their web address: They also state that a release by Eternity's Children will come in 2002. Ron -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 6 Date: Fri, 02 Aug 2002 23:39:41 EDT From: Scott Subject: The Jaedes Weren't a couple of folks talking about The Jaedes a couple of weeks back? I bought an album by this outfit (1969's "The Jaedes" on Athena, catalog number ZLP-6002) and can't find a trace of information on them. Any help out there?
