Subject: Re: The Monkees

From Dave Swanson:
> I had heard a while ago that Andrew Sandoval was working on a Monkees book 
> that would be a sort of day-by-day account of everything. Recording sessions, 
> live dates, TV show filming, etc.  

That would be amazing. Like The Beatles Recording sessions, just a great book.

Your Friend,

Mikey

It sounded like a Spector production > but I'm trying to figure out who was singing. Is it possible what you heard was the Evie Sands version of this song? Nicely done and very Spector-ish. BW (Admin Note: If so, which version? Evie did the song twice: at Blue Cat and later at A & M.) -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 3 Date: Tue, 22 Oct 2002 20:16:45 -0000 From: Will Stos Subject: Re: Reality Check -- "Girl Groups" Is Not "War and Peace" If this guy from Oakland who wrote the critical review on amazon.com was on this list, and judging from his review he probably was/is, I don't understand why he didn't say anything here. It's not like this group isn't open to debate - we've had a lot. Also, John's on this list too, so I'm not sure why he didn't write to him directly. My only guess is that he, or she, is jealous or upset because he was working on his own book (as he sort of alluded to) and now has more to live up to. As John says, in his introduction, he wants to tell stories. It's a pretty big jump to start saying it's trying to be a definitive history. John, I wouldn't have even so gracious as you. Putting out a message asking this guy to contact you to discuss it further seems like a waste of time since he seems to like the claok of anonymity. My theory is, some people are just bitter about everything. The type of people who listen to "Sour Grapes" on Dream Babes over and over again until they're so mad they could spit. Keep up the good work, Will : ) -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Message: 6 Date: Tue, 22 Oct 2002 17:58:27 -0400 From: Karl Baker Subject: Re: American bad dreams Besides the music being out out synch with the time frame that they're trying to depict (my wife hushed me when I pointed out the Manfreds recording), did anyone else notice that in a scene in a classroom with a nun that the picture of JFK was draped in black? You'd think that his assassination was a non-event they way the characters were partying. Karl Baker -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Nicely done and very Spector-ish. No, I heard it too, and my immediate thought was Dave Edmunds, but now no longer sure... -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 8 Date: Wed, 23 Oct 2002 00:25:14 -0000 From: Billy G Spradlin Subject: Re: The Monkees Most of Rhino's re-releases of the original Monkees albums have session dates and studio musicans (a mostly LA's "wrecking crew" but several tracks during Don Kirshner's reign were recorded in NYC) - I would love to see a "day-by-day" book of recording sessions too. It's amazing they recorded so much material in the 4 years they were together. Billy -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 9 Date: Wed, 23 Oct 2002 00:34:14 -0000 From: Billy G Spradlin Subject: Re: The Reflections "Just Like Romeo & Juliet" appeared in stereo for the first time on Varese Sarabande's great "On The Radio - Volume 2" compiled by Dick Bartley. It wasnt the best mix (the backing track is mixed too low) but it did prove that stereo tapes do exist. Golden World was bought out by Motown in the 60s so they could use their studios - Universal music owns their master tapes. Billy -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
