Subject: Re: Decca Discography

Just a minor correction to Erik's welcome and comprehensive reply to Scott's
> "11897  DEAN MARTIN: Save the last dance for me/Will you love me tomorrow"

Should be JEAN Martin, a girl. I don't think Decca got Dean (or Frank, or Sammy 
Jr.) on their books!

Jean's cover of "Save the Last Dance For Me" is featured on the available 
CD "The Girl's Scene" (Deram 844 897-2), compiled by Ian Chapman, which I and 
others have raved about before. It was also on the deleted LP "Girl Zone" 
(Impact 008), compiled by Mick Patrick.

I've posted some information to Mark's new, and yet to be announced, official web site. A link is below. Two CDs are available now: Philwit & Pegasus (Expanded Edition) and Mark Wirtz Pop Works. The latter is a one CD version of the Anthology for those who only want the late 60s material. It's a fun CD in its own right with rare Kenny Everett commercials (produced with Mark) in between the tracks. I'm happy to say that Pop Works is receiving rave reviews from those who have gotten copies. I will soon be in touch with anyone who has written me already. If you are interested in hearing more about these collections of ultra rare Mark Wirtz material, please write me off list. Here is the link (while you are there please sign Mark's guest book!): The main site is -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 3 Date: Sat, 10 Aug 2002 07:14:38 +0200 From: Frank Subject: Re: Decca discography Long before anyone even thought of something like the "net". Paul Pelletier compiled an impressive amount of infos to publish the first records catalogues ever available in the UK. There was no other way to find such informations back in the 60s and 70s. His catalogues (which I bought at the time and still own) remain invaluable tools for anyone interested in vinyls. True the net made some of these infos available freely but I suspect that many sites where you can find discographies certainly found their basis in Pelletier's catalogues. Saying that "it sucks that Mr. Pelletier is making money with it" is like saying that it sucks that any artists or producers are making money by having their recordings sold in record shops when you can download them for free on the net.

That's funny, I dreamt last night that I met Bruce Johnston and had a chat with him about how writing songs gets more difficult as you get older. I guess the Beach Boys are just so life altering they're bound to crop up in your dreams now and then! Regards, Guy. -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Bill, I am glad to hear that I am not the only person who can clearly hear favorite singers sing songs that they have never actually sung, except in my head! Usually, though, I have this happen when I'm awake, rather than dreaming. It's very interesting, isn't it? One time, though, I did have a dream in which Cher sang a song I had never heard her sing before. Unfortunately, I couldn't remember the song when I woke up. Once, while driving down the road with the car radio on, I heard a song that I believe was by Tony Orlando (without Dawn) - a pop/rock song from his early career. I could immediately hear the song being sung by my special favorites, Nino Tempo and April Stevens, and thought to myself that I wished I could have a record of them singing it. I can't remember what song it was, but it would have been absolutely perfect for Tempo/ Stevens in their White Whale era. How many of the rest of you in this group can hear your favorites singing songs they never sang? Mary ("Niagara") -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
