Subject: Nnillssonn's Popeye

I wanted to ask the collection of cognoscente present if anyone knew if the 
Harry Nillsson soundtrack to The Popeye movie was ever on cd.  I've been 
reading completely divergent reports on-line.

If so, or even if someone has transferred it to cd, I'd love to trade 
something for it(?)

thanx in advance,

There were several unreleased tapes when Decca was sold and the Twinns contract was cancelled. The surviving Twin Gerry has the tapes and may release them. He is a friend of mine. Not online as yet alas. -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

I've been reading completely divergent > reports on-line. I've been told that it may have briefly been available on CD in Europe, but I've never seen a copy. The master tapes of Harry Nilsson's own recordings of the "Popeye" songs have been found and may someday be released. But the profit margin on such releases is so slim that rampant music piracy makes it less likely we'll ever see that happen. - Roger Popeye: -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

I know this is an old message but I just picked up another Delvy-Fournier 45 that I think might be the Challengers in disguise: MGM 13851 THE EXPRESS - Little Bit Of Lovin'/Hurry Love "Little Bit Of Lovin'" can probably best be described as a "white pop stomper", kind of a Wiganesque Northern soul kind of sound, super-melodic with a huge hook and an American Breed kind of vibe. As has been pointed out earlier, Fournier would later go on to write for the Hardy Boys. The Challengers' "Everything To Me" (written by Fournier) sounds me to my ears like a lost Del Shannon track! It's on GNP Crescendo 396, and I believe was also an LP track. Jeff Lemlich -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

I have the DeVaurs' > "Where Are You" on Moon - very nice doo-wop track. I have this on a different label -- Red Fox 104. Obviously the second label. Anyone know the story behind this? Re: Henrietta & The Hairdooz - if "You Got A Lot To Learn" has not been reissued on a CD, I'd be glad to play it to musica.

Any suggestions? I am going to use things like: The Parade - Lullaby Morrissey - Moon River etc. Any input would be appreciated. -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

After Delvy moved the Challengers to GNP Creshendo from Vault Records in 1965, he relinquished the drum role to Hal Blaine and Ed Gordon, and concentrated on producing. He produced many surf/hot Lps for various labels, and also did many one-off 45s, "Sasquash" on RCA (i think) among them. Jeff...Can you do all of us here a nice favor and play "Little Bit of Lovin" and "Everything to Me" to Musica?? Your Friend, Mikey -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 9 Date: Wed, 14 Aug 2002 21:43:11 -0000 From: Neil Hever Subject: Girl group acetate update Folks, Bill at the Jackie DeShannon appreciation society has confirmed that Jackie is singing lead on the "Franklin Street" demo that was recently unearthed. It may very well be the only copy in existence with her singing the tune. I could be wrong, but there is no trace of it anywhere else. The other two mystery tunes should be posted on musica before the end of the month. Cheers, Neil Hever -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

To be honest, out of all the > versions I have heard, I think that Reparata and The Delrons > did the best rendition!!!!!! Judging from what Ellie Greenwich has gone on the record saying, The Exciters had the first version out. For my money, nothing beats The Raindrops' bitchin' take on the song. Miss Ellie sounds downright STREETWISE. Stuffed Animal -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
