Doug:
> Wayne ("the white James Brown") released some pretty good records.

I think he should have been a lot bigger than what he was.
He is into gospel music now I used to see him on the PTL club 
when Jim and Tammy were around and on other religious programs.

One of the girls, Patti Young, was responsible for northern soul favourite "Head and Shoulders (Above The Rest)" (Ernstrat 495), produced by Fred Saxon - Dennis Coffey was the arranger. Incidentally Dennis tells me that moves are afoot to get his book published in the States. Davie Gordon -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Simon, I heard you play what I now realise is Judy Stone's version on your show, it's brilliant! Just thought I'd pipe up to say of course there is the version by scrappy, screechy scots gal Linda Flavell! Still haven't managed to find my own copy, but it's on the marvellous Girls Scene CD which just so happens to feature many of my personal favourite songs and has the most delish pic of Adrienne Posta on the back.

There is also a version (or, less likely, a different song with the same title) by "Susan Rewis," available now on GEMM: http://www7.gemm.com/c/search.pl?sid=301667232&key=29080&a_refno=GML700199711.

Those gals possess a unique sound, and I always felt they should've had some records of their own. I'll bet they may have recorded under other names as well.

Hi Ron and All, Aah, a fellow backing vocalist connoisseur, a man after my very own heart. Now, I'm sure you were just winding me up, Ron, but just in case you weren't, and for the benefit of everyone else; Mark Wynter's background vocals on "I'll Come Running To You" were performed by Liverpool's finest, THE BREAKAWAYS, Merseyside's answer to the Sweet Inspirations. Now, puh-leeeez, don't get me started on those two groups, or we could be here all night! MICK PATRICK -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 10 Date: Tue, 03 Sep 2002 13:49:50 -0700 From: Jeffrey Glenn Subject: Re: The Society Girls' "S.P.C.L.G." Dan: > A song called "SPCLG" (Society for the Prevention of Cruelty > to Little Girls) was a hit in Indianapolis (my hometown) in > the early 60's. A wonderful record, sounded Motown to me but > was actually on Vee Jay. What can you tell me about this group? Dan, I can only list what's on the original 45 label, and then leave it to others to fill in the details on the names involved: S.P.C.L.G. *(Society For The Prevention Of Cruelty To Little Girls)(Malcolm Dodds)/You Better Stay Home (Malcolm Dodds) - The Society Girls, Vee Jay VJ 524: 1963, A Goledo Production, Arranged & Conducted by Malcolm Dodds Who is the elusive Malcolm Dodds? He doesn't show up anywhere else in my collection (though a quick Google search shows records by Malcolm Dodds & The Tunedrops and the Malcolm Dodds Singers as well as a vocal cameo on "Everybody's Talkin'" from Enoch Light and The Light Brigade's LP THE BEST OF THE MUSIC THEMES 1970). And the only other 45 I have with a Goledo Productions credit is "My Lise"/"You Can't Win" by Los Goledos on Atco 45-6539 from 1967 (a Herb Alpert-like instrumental record with no songwriting credits given), so that doesn't offer much help either. I'm sure someone here can elaborate! I can play either side to musica if anyone wants to hear them [ "S.P.C.L.G." is the recommended side :-) ] Jeff -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Message: 17 Date: Tue, 03 Sep 2002 21:51:50 -0400 From: Country Paul Subject: Brute Force; girl group revival; Young Sisters; more Simon White noted Brute Force's self-analysis and said: > I got a headache reading this! > [Or was it just those Spectro - Poppers?] Remember, Mr. Force is also a revered figure on the Outsider Music list, too! Freya, two sites you're probably looking for are http://www.incorrectmusic.com, run by Irwin Chusid and Michelle Boule, and http://www.thebranflakes.com run by Otis Fodder (welcome to Spectropop, Otis). Incidentally, Shooby Taylor was found alive and functional - well enough but frail at age 72 - and was interviewed last week on WFMU. Now THERE's a character! Pictures and more at http://www.shooby.com. Again, re: NYC party, I would love to be part of the assembled multitude. Say when and where, and if I'm here (or near here), I'm there! By the way, am I the only one who's noticed that the girl-group sound seems to be making something of a comeback recently, or at least a reawakening of people's awareness of it? First "Hairspray" and now the upcoming Dick Clark TV series rehash. Sadly, the latter does not sound promising; his (or someone close to the show's) comment went something like, "It doesn't matter what the people we get to play the artists look like; everyone remembers how Lesley Gore sounded, but no one remembers what she looks like". Great attitude, Dick. At least he promises to have the Beach Boys original clip from American Bandstand, not some band stand-ins. (Couldn't resist the pun - sorry!) Wow - the Young Sisters behind Del Shannon! They ARE good - of course! I have "Casanova Brown," and meant to mention it on several occasions - it was a very good record that deserved a bigger audience. Thanks for the info, Mick. Peter Lerner: sadly, the entire Gorgoni-Martin-Taylor album is very bland and forgettable. More to my taste is their first collaboration (at least the first known to me), Just Us (originally on Minuteman, with the album on Kapp). In addition to the famous "Can't Grow Peaches On A Cherry Tree," my fave track is "I Keep Changing My Mind." The lyric is a bit sweet, but overall it still works for me. Some of you will yell at me, but am I the only one who thinks the Spiral Staircase's "More Today Than Yesterday" is grating? I'd hope the rest of their output is less so, but I confess to not having the patience or desire to find out. (I was in Top 40 radio when this song hit #1, and had to play it hourly for two weeks!) I never mistook the lead singer for a girl, though, but I confess I did in Air Supply. (I also thought Wayne Newton was at first....)
