Subject: Wonderful Summer

Hi lovely Spectropoppers,

I really enjoyed the Spectropop Party. People were very friendly 
and so nice to me. At first I was little bit nervous, but when I 
saw lots of people smiling, talking and enjoying cool 60's rare 
video and music then I became so happy. And especially Elisabeth 
and The Actionettes!!! I thought if I wear nice cute dress like 
them maybe I could join the Actionettes. I really want to listen 
and see your performances more, maybe next time ;)

And finally I met people who I never met before. Thank you Phil, 
Mick, Ian and Martin for taking care of me not only at the party.
Malcolm, Kingsley, Keith it was lovely to meet you. And thank 
you Mick's sister and her husband.

Reluctantly, I had to return home to Tokyo. This time I really 
didn't want to come back, I wanted to stay in London more, and 
continue the party. But now I have lots of good memories and 
good music. Thank you Mick, you gave me Party CDRs. 

I want to talk and meet more people at next time. Where will 
that be? Please do more.

Thank you again.
with lots of love.
Keiko from Tokyo

And if you downloaded my mp3 go download Jeffery's - it sounds so much better. BTW what are the writer/producer credits for this 45? I also posted SN & The CT's "Pleasure Of Your Company"...I really love the opening harmonies of this 45. Billy -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 3 Date: Fri, 23 Aug 2002 09:19:43 +0000 From: Phil Milstein Subject: one more on robin ward In reviewing the various posts, both new and archived, on Robin (Jackie) Ward, I thought of an interesting session that appears to have eluded documentation of her credits. I haven't had this independently confirmed, but a prominent L.A. studio singer, who's done many sessions with Jackie, told me that she's the source of the otherworldly wordless vocal on the Star Trek intro theme. --Phil Milstein -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 4 Date: Fri, 23 Aug 2002 14:34:32 +0100 From: Kingsley Abbott Subject: Cowboy Junkies Just wanted to share info about a lovely track that I have just stumbled across that I reckon a lot of folk here would love: "Darkling Days" by The Cowboy Junkies from their 1998 album "Miles from Our Homes". Its a soft and summery acoustic led song that reminds me of a mix of folk from the mid/late sixties including Fairport/Rascals/Sunshine Company AND it has a multi- layered counter-harmony long fade. I have been pushing repeat since I found it! If anyone else out there knows it, please tell me if the group have done any others like this one. If you don't know it, try to take a listen somewhere in a proper record shop... Kingsley -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Message: 8 Date: Fri, 23 Aug 2002 16:56:44 +0000 From: Stuffed Animal Subject: Girl Groups At The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame Postage stamps are fine, but it's high time the RRHF honored a few more of these women with induction. Not to mention the producers and songwriters who gave them hits, such as as Luther Dixon, Bob Crewe, Jeff Barry and Ellie Greenwich! Can I get a witness, y'all?

Message: 9 Date: Fri, 23 Aug 2002 13:05:21 -0400 From: Dave Subject: Girl Groups get Stamped at the R&R Hall of Fame Hi Folks: An amazing 30 hours or so hanging out in Cleveland at two parties and one presentation celebrating The Girl Group Postage Stamps. I drove in from Canada South (Windsor/Detroit). Dave Tollington and Doug Thompson drove in from Toronto. Our host was Cleveland- International owner Steve Popovich http://www.clevelandintl.com/clevelandintl/ Here are Dave's initial comments: Warren: OK, so watching Martha Reeves, Mary Wilson, Nedra Tally, Shirley Owens, Carol Street and La La Brooks tear it up on stage together was a once in a lifetime experience, and certainly Carol (Velvelettes) and Shirley (Shirelles) had voices so authentic to their hit-making prime that it was scary, but there were a few glimpses of real life with these people that I'll never forget: - Mary Wilson storming on stage and shutting down the house band, they having insisted on "warming up" the crowd with a rendition of "Dancing in the Street" AND blowing the lyrics at the same time... with Martha herself there in the room. - Martha finally getting up there and announcing she had a tape, that she didn't need the band to play a single note, and then wailing on the real "Dancing In the Street". - watching Nedra Talley (Ronettes) cavort and mouth lyrics backstage to "Da Doo Ron Ron" while La La Brooks (the original Crystal who sang the hit..and still looking great) was delivering the classic with incredible gusto on stage. - catching Martha Reeves, leafing through a book someone had handed her at the autograph table almost two hours into the signing routine, wistfully mouth the words to Jimmy Mack playing over the PA. And I guess best of all was just being there to see a room full of amazing women, most who made it against odds we'll never fully appreciate, having one hell of a party together. There was a native Clevelander standing next to me at the club and I swear he was close to tears for most of the performance. He said his parents had gone to the local Moondog shows and that he had grown up on the Shirelles, never knowing if it was the girlfriend or the music he was in love with at the time. Like everyone else there, I guess I didn't know if it was the girls on stage or the music I was in love with either last night. Having a crush on a girl across the room in early '60's grade school and watching the event last night all seemed to roll into one. Ya had to be there...

Good Lord, if that is her she has a phenomenal voice. I would have thought it was Jackie Vogel from the Skyliners. I have always wondered who that Star Trek voice was.

Roger Smith: > No, it's Loulie Jean Norman, the wife of conductor Gordon Jenkins. One of the main reasons, I'll bet, that nobody's ever listed it among Jackie Ward's credits! --Phil Milstein -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Hi All, Robin (Jackie) Ward may or may not have vocaled the stratospheric Star Trek leitmotif; she does, however, claim to have sung the TV themes for Flipper, Maude, Love American Style and BATMAN! But what I want to know is, did she or did she not record in disguise for Tower Records as Josephine Sunday? Answers on a postcard to...

I heard that it was Gene Roddenberry's wife who did that. So is Jackie/Robin the wife of Star Trek's creator? Ron Weekes -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
