I have Buzz's LP, which is excellent, especially "Unchained 
Melody". Also, my 45 of the original version of the "Baby 
Sitting Boogie", called "Baby Talk" by Mike and Lulu, is great!

Even though I don't know the song, I just couldn't pass on such an intriguing title! Just wondered if anyone could tell me anything about her? Unfortunately it's not the version with a picture sleeve.. .if anyone out there has the p/s, a scan would be fantastic! Elisabeth x -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

The Sullivan appearance was lip-synced, so, quite likely yes. --Phil Milstein -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

And once again, >pre-Beatles rock, rockabilly, that sort of thing. >Very listenable. Seconded. Anyone wanting to check the station out should try http://www.kdav.com (because of a rather arbitrary decision back in the 20s, radio stations west of the Mississippi River start their call letters with K, not W except for a few grand- fathered stations like Dallas' WFAA), but listening on the computer just isn't the same as when I'm actually back home in Lubbock, listening to the station while I'm heading down the Topeka Highway to the strip of liquor stores just outside the city limits. (Dry town, you know.) Lubbock has always had a very strong local music scene, from Buddy in the '50s to Jimmie Dale and the Flatlanders in the '70s to Terry Allen and the Maines Brothers in the '80s. It's the combination of a really good liberal arts college and the fact that there's really not a lot else to do. There are few things more endearingly cheesy than local radio and late-night TV commercials, especially in a small market like Lubbock.

Hi Doc, Any chance you could play a copy of this Smash 45 to musica if it isn't available on cd?

Message: 11 Date: Fri, 20 Sep 2002 12:10:55 -0600 From: Ron Weekes Subject: Lee Mallory A heads up to the Lee Mallory collectors in the group. The Rev-Ola/Cherry Red release of "That's The Way It's Gonna Be" includes six more tracks than the Dreamsville release of the same name. The first fourteen tracks of both releases are the same. This new release includes the following: 15. All That I Am Is Me 16. Love At Last 17. No Other Love 18. Them Words 19. You've Got Me Movin' 20. I'm With You More thoughts later after I get a chance to listen to all of the disc. Ron Weekes http://www.garyusher.com -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 12 Date: Fri, 20 Sep 2002 19:05:23 -0400 From: Bob Rashkow Subject: The Montage I've never heard I SHALL CALL HER MARY (unfortunately) but I am very privileged to own a DJ copy of WAKE UP, JIMMY which has to be one of the more bizarre recordings in my collection thus far. Brown aka Lookofsky et al leave the disaster that befalls the two brothers at the end entirely up to your imagination, continuing in the Left Banke's tradition of subtlety and poetic elegance. There's a surname of Sommer involved too - suspect this ISN'T BERT Sommer ("We're All Playing in the Same Band", died way too young, appeared with Ronnie Dyson et al in HAIR on Broadway), or is it? Answer my weary query.....enough with the adjectives, gotta go and listen to the Montage one more time! Bobster -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
