Mikey:
> Jeff...Can you do all of us here a nice favor and play 
> "Little Bit of Lovin"
> and "Everything to Me" to Musica??

Hey Mikey, I know you meant Mr. Lemlich, but I just recently 
burned "Little Bit Of Lovin'" on LOST JUKEBOX VOL. 101, so I 
went ahead and played it to musica.

But that doesn't let Jeff L. off the hook for "Everything To 
Me." :-)   I'd love to hear it too.  The one vocal Challengers 
45 I have - "Before You"/"Color Me In (Little Yellow Bug)" on 
GNP Crescendo GNP-400 from 1967 - is outstanding (and of course 
I could also play these to music also)!

the other Jeff

Message: 2 Date: Thu, 15 Aug 2002 02:04:04 -0000 From: Bob Rashkow Subject: Connexions Did I miss something there?? Twinn Connexion on Decca, "I Think I Know Him" produced by Jerry Keller, purchased recently by Bobster. Excellent sunshine pop with a beautiful organ and a very dramatic tune. Weird version of "Turn Down Day" on flip. Ulga, who WERE those people?? Was that Jerry Keller singing? The "Here Comes Summer" dude? Doesn't sound like him!! Matt J Howell, I think for starters these three would be suitable: "Lullaby for Tim"-The Hollies (Evolution LP), "Lullaby"-Grapefruit (Around Grapefruit LP) Lullaby of Love-The Poppies (single) From the mid-70s I also love 10cc's "Rock & Roll Lullaby", not to be at all confused with BJ Thomas' song of a few years earlier!! Can anyone challenge Whitburn? I need to be 100 % sure on this. Says that Five Americans "I See The Light" is same tune as Music Explosion's "I See The Light". Have both & as far as I can ascertain, they are decidedly NOT the same song, consider this to be a glaring error!! Can anyone shed some "light" on this oh-so- crucial-to-the-future-of-mankind issue!!?? Thanks in advance - Bobster -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 3 Date: Thu, 15 Aug 2002 02:01:28 -0400 From: Country Paul Subject: Judee Sill; Garry Bonner; Four Coins and more Back from vacation - I missed you all. I'll never catch up, but let's try a couple of things.... First, before I left, I'd mentioned DJ Bob Brainen on WFMU http://www.wfmu.org Their listener premiums, CD's sent in thanks for donations, arrived while I was gone, and on Bob's there was an exquisite demo track by Judee Sill called "Till Dreams Come True," planned for a never- released third album, which I have fallen in love with. This led me to get back into the two Judee Sill albums (on Asylum) from 1971 and 1973. To establish her credentials with this group: her song, "Lady-O", was a 45 by the Turtles in 1969, and Jim Pons of that group was a co-producer of her first album (except for the lead single, "Jesus Was A Crossmaker," produced by Graham Nash). Her version of "Lady-O" (on her first album) is transcendently beautiful. Anyway, I've been living with the demo track in the CD player and was moved to search the web for more info about her. I discovered "Music That Means Something" at http://www.kneeling.co.uk/default.asp, that has varying amounts of info on many artists from many eras. One of the most detailed pages is on Judee Sill; scroll down the left side and click on her name. On her front page, click on "Remembering Judee" for a truly heartbreaking biography; how this tortured soul could create such accomplished and beautiful music is a true wonder. Then go down the page and click on Bob Claster's link; you'll get to the remarkable demo I mentioned and a whole lot more. Happy discovery! Compliments to all ont he Baby Jane & the Rockabyes story. "What a long strange trip...." Erik Meinen: I have Dancing Babies/The Fat Lady In The Wicker Chair by Click on Laurie. E-mail me off list for a dub. One more "Record by Pete": another WFMU premium had "Warm," the single by Carol Stromme. It is such a well-done piece of pretentious "pop-hip" stuff by someone who sounds 15 years too old to be really hip - and who obviously desperately wants to be cool and groovy. Can you dig it? Well, maybe for a few seconds.... Re: Garry Bonner, with 2 R's, had a 45 (with picture sleeve) on Columbia ("The Heart of Juliet Jones" - yawn) featuring "Me About You" as the flip side. This gorgeous rendition is the authoritative version of the song in my opinion. If Bonner had done nothing else, this would be his "ticket to ride." Does anyone know if it's out on a (reasonably-priced) CD? Rashkovsky: (1) I'd proposed the idea of a Spectropop gathering in NYC or somewhere else easy to reach for northeast US list members. Sadly, I can't do the planning, but would love to come schedule permitting - and I'll twist the sechule any way I can! (2) Minuteman Records out of Boston in the 60's had the original releases of Just Us (Gorgoni & Taylor)'s "Can't Grow Peaches On A Cherry Tree" (later on Kapp) as well as Teddy & The Pandas (later on Musicor). I think Boston promo man Bruce Patch was the force behind the label. (3) Eskew Reeder, in Earl Palmer's book "Backbeat," was the "original version" of Little Richard, according to Earl. Oddly enough, I've never heard the man - Reeder, not Palmer! Leonardo - nice work on the Tokens Q&A. They did so much great stuff - production as well as playing and singing. I knew the "Green Plant" story - it was current at the time the record was being promoted. I often wondered how they got together with the Kirby Stone Four for "Life Is Groovy," one of my favorite records on BT Puppy; each group really complements each other. I assume it's so, but does anyone know if the Four Coins on the British Invasion-sounding "Boys Cry" (Joy Records) is the same early 50's close-harmony group that did such middle-roaders as "Shangri-La"? (I thought of this because of the unison lead in "Boys Cry," related to the style of the Kirby Stone Four.) More soon, Country Paul -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

There is a web site dedicated to a bunch of these demos and other unreleased material. You can download all of them. Including live material (Judi's commentary makes the live stuff priceless!) it fills about 2 CDs. "Till Dreams Come True" is great but it is not the only really good unreleased track by Sill. I don't know the URL off hand but do a search for it. It's easy to find. Her two LPs are among my favorites of all time by any artist. Both were reissued on CD in Japan and the sound is glorious. Good to see her name mentioned here. -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Hey Jeff!! PLEASE do that if you can, I'd really appreciate it. Many thanks, Mikey (stuck in VERY hot New York City) -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 6 Date: Thu, 15 Aug 2002 16:07:16 -0000 From: Ron Sauer Subject: Nino & April Question I recently obtained an LP called "A Happening" on Design records. It's one of those compilations that have early work of artists who became popular. This one has Johnny Rivers, Vic Dana, Roy Orbison, Joe Tex, and others. It also has a song by April Stevens and Nino Tempo called "Ooeah (That's What You Do to Me)" which is why I got it. Nice song. Does anyone have any information on this song-label, year, who produced, who wrote, etc? Also, Nino & April had a nice web site, but it seems to be gone. Anyone know why? Will it be back? Thanks for any help. Ron -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Richard Delvy was also producer of the cartoon rock group The Groovie Goolies circa 1969. They released an album on RCA Victor.

The time is 1pm CALIFORNIA time. That is 4pm eastern. The website says 8pm in England, although that may be off by an hour, I'm not sure. It also says 3pm eastern time, and I know that is incorrect.
