Why not?  It sounds exactly like Tony Burrows and his name is 
on the session documentation. Why wouldn't you think it was him?

Your Friend,

If I'm not mistaken, Petula lived in Paris during her biggest hitmaking years. Vogue has released a seven-volume series called ANTHOLOGIE that covers her Francophone sides from the late '50s to the early '70s, and it's absolutely essential listening for any fan of Petula and/or French pop. I think her French songs are at least the equal of her English-language material. Stewart -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Yep Her Gainsbourg song La Gadoue + Oh Oh Sherrif are great did you listen to that? Petula in the 70's was massive in France and a reccurent guest on Sacha Distel Shows- JEd :-) -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

So happy that I'm not the only person in the universe who loves "Ashes To Ashes" (The Mindbenders). Tinks, the Boettcher tune "Another Time" you have by The Summer Winds is PROBABLY same as recorded by Sagittarius. Their recording is quite possibly IMHO one of the loveliest pop records that came out of late 6Ts. Is this the one?....."you'll see a sky that beckons you to try your wings at last, but another time has come, another time has passed...." Absolutely poetry! Keep those groovy posts coming in, all!

Message: 6 Date: Thu, 12 Sep 2002 06:40:51 +0930 From: Norman Subject: Re: Tony Burrows Thank you Mikey, You say his name is on the session documentation... that is good enough for me. I will going into our local community station in a couple of weeks to run a few records past the morning audience. The theme I wanted to follow was Tony Burrows with a few things thrown in from the side lines such as Greenaway-Cook, Carter-Lewis and even Benny Hill's Harvest of Love. I will be starting off with the Kestrels and working my way through to the 1970s with White Plains, Edison Lighthouse, Pipkins etc. Most Spectroppers may realise that at the time Tony Burrows had those hits in the early 1970s only Love Grows was a hit in Australia. There was a record ban (of the Boston Tea Party type) on British records. Most of his hits were covered successfully by local groups. The only exception being The Joe Jefferies Group (My Baby Loves Lovin') who hail from Ohio, I think. Any info on Tony Burrows etc., would be most welcome. Thanks, Norman -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 7 Date: Wed, 11 Sep 2002 23:20:37 +0200 From: Hans Ket Subject: Re: Sundowners > the second one is the sundowners "dear undecided" c/w "always > you" on decca. I've always wondered about who the Sundowners > REALLY were. I've a copy of the Sundowners Decca album "Captain Nemo". The bandmembers mentioned on the cover (and photographed) are: Domenick DeMieri, George Bianchi, Benny Grammatico, Bobby Dick, Eddie Placidi en Eddie Brick. The album is produced by Domenick DeMieri & Charles Bud Dant. The tracks on the album are indeed heavenly influenced by britisch groups like the Hollies & Beatles, but they didn't forget u.s. groups like the Byrds as well. I've no release date of the album but it seems a pre Sgt. Pepper affair. The album doesn't sound like a concept album, and to me it's more a collection of 11 (for the biggest part very good) songs (including "dear undecided" c/w "always you"). Sadly there are no writers credits on the label. They really put their soul in it. I've associated the album more as a "Rubber Soul" the a "Sgt. Pepper".

The Summer Winds version of "Another Time" (Metromedia 131) is indeed the Boettcher tune. While decent, it doesn't come close to the Sagittarius masterpiece. I can post it to musica, if anyone wants to judge for themselves. Den. -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Message: 10 Date: Thu, 12 Sep 2002 00:59:03 EDT From: Will George Subject: Re: Death of Radio Mary S. > One of the few exceptions > to all of this is the great young singer, Charlotte Church, > who does a lot of classical-type singing. Ack! Mention her name to any real classical singer, and you'll get the same reaction from them as you just had to the "whisper" singers. I rarely listen to radio any more because there is very little music played on the radio that I like. I buy tons of new CDs every year, and enjoy many different styles of music, but most of it doesn't get any airplay. There is one NPR station in NYC that is bearable, but even they seem to have a pretty tight playlist. I truly believe that if radio stations began playing more new music, the public would come around. There is more out there than Britney Spears and 'N Sync, but nobody gets an opportunity to hear them! Bill -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

The B-side of "Baja California" (Dot 17137, 1968) was entitled "Donnie" but it is not a composition credited to Mr. Barris. I wrote about it briefly in my webzine ( but I wasn't able to discover why he selected this particular song. -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
