Subject: Zal; Ikettes question

RIP and regrets, Zal Yanovsky, you helped make the Spoonful 
tuneful. Wasn't "Summer in the City" a pretty popular garage 
band cover (though not nearly as covered as, say, "Hey, Joe" 
or "Gloria" or "Wild Thing")?  I've heard several versions of 
"You Didn't Have To Be So Nice" including one by an Anne Murray
-type crooner which slows down the tempo to a fireside beat 
(Ugh!) And The Rotary Connection (whom I mentioned before 
re Beatles lyrics) covered "Didn't Want To Have To Do It" on 
their Trip I album too.

Now for my Question of the Week: I checked the Girl Groups 
site (John Clemente et al) for the Ikettes because I figured 
if I could get some info there I wouldn't have to ask on the 
list. They're not there but my question is: Did the Atco 
personnel always sound kind of like The Shirelles (as they do 
on the non-chart "Heavenly Love"-1962-which my mom got as a 
bonus with another 45 back then) and did the Modern label group 
continue this same sound?  Reason I ask is that other than the 
aforementioned single and their backing of Ike & Tina on records 
such as "River Deep - Mountain High", I haven't heard too much 
of their other records, even "I'm Blue (Gong Gong Song)" which 
got pretty far up the charts in '62. (Although - I suspect this 
is the same tune Spencer Davis did on the '69 HEAVIES album) .

Ravin' on,

That means that on Saturday 21st I won't have the dilemma of choosing whether to go and see Ronnie Spector at B B King's or Darlene Love at Symphony Space on Broadway. Big Apple dwellers can find out more about Ronnie's gig in yesterday's Team Spectropop message. Booking information for Darlene's shows can be found within her webpages at: or at the venue's site: As it is, I live in South London. My choice of Saturday night entertainment is more likely to be between the Crankies in Jack & the Beanstalk and Martine McCutcheon in Cinderella. Decisions, decisions! Break a leg, ladies.

Roger Scott was a terrific bloke and a real fan. I didn't know him well, but we drove down to Brighton together to see Springsteen in the early 80s and the whole trip was enormous fun. I met James Hamilton a couple of times when he was writing his Record Mirror column in the days before disco: one of those '60s English public school boys who fell in love with the music and failed to go into the army or merchant banking or estate management or whatever his parents may have planned for him. Like Jack Good, Guy Stevens, Mike Raven and Dave Godin, he was a maverick whose taste touched many more people than ever knew his name.

Message: 10 Date: Tue, 17 Dec 2002 13:06:48 -0000 From: Kingsley Abbott Subject: Roger Scott & James Hamilton Oh YES - what a great 'Cruisin' show those two gents used to put together for Capitol Radio! Roger was a attendee of the annual UK Beach Boys Fan Convention and it was there that I struck up a friendship with him, largely based around conversations about obscure surf and drag vocal issues. So much so that, when they planned a show called "The Surfin' Draggin' Bikin' Show" or somesuch for their weekly Cruisin slot, they got me in to provide a few rarities. I went to James' flat where we played lots of tracks that were eventually used to enrich the expected BB, J&D, Dick Dale selections - thus Episode Six's "Mighty Morris Ten", The Rip Chords "Summer USA", The VoxPoppers "Last drag", the Upsetters "Draggin' The Main", the Rockaways "Top Down Time" (i think) probably gained their first and perhaps only UK radio airings. Unlike some radio shows, these were meticulously planned with timings down to the last second by James, with a complete tidily typed script. Roger would then do intros and inserts as befitted. I still have a C120 tape of the show somewhere, so in theory it could be copied though my own facilities for such activity are somewhat crock at present. I also seem to recall a tape of another specially themed show - may have been the girlie one or maybe another one - seems another delve into the inner sanctum may be on the cards... Roger also continually championed the wonderful "Dear Brian" by Chris Rainbow (whose excellent three solo albums are well worth picking up) - this song was, and is, one of the best ever about Brian Wilson. I have very fond memories of Roger, and indeed of James, who had one of the very best album collections I have ever seen. He let me have a look through the racks, and I saw UK issue albums I never knew at the time even existed: the Majors and the Rivingtons among them. I feel that, had they lived, both those lovely gentlemen would be sure to be Spectropoppers Kingsley -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

In 1966, when I first heard this great song, I vowed that I would one day own a copy of the 45, and so I have for the last 10 years. It is included on a 1966 comp that I put together last year, preceeded by the tokens, "I Hear Trumpets Blow" and followed by the Vogues, "Magic town". I try to chronologically order the songs on these compilations beginning with those tracks that were played on the radio, beginning in january and then continuing the song list as the year progresses. So the first song on this 1966 comp is Frankie Valli's, "you know you know you're gonna hurt yourself". Let me see now, did I first hear this valli tune in January 1966, or was it in late december of 1965, around the 19th or the 20th? Now which day was it?----- Justin Mcdevitt -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Is that likely? Maybe that's a silly question since embellished demos were probably not uncommon. I ask because it really is a great song with hit potential. The fact that more attention was given to its recording baffles me. It's also possible that I'm hearing things wrong and Carla Thomas' recording is par for the course.

A not-so Lovin' story about the Spoonful happened in '65 at Cambridge's "Club 47" Coffeehouse, a partial progenitor of the Great Folk Music Scare of the mid 6T's. Anyway, the Spoonful were in town to do a show at 47, their original reputation being that of a jug band which the Folk Music Scare worshipped from on high. Which actually leads me to my point - from on high. The Spoonful were caught in possession of weed and were told that they could face the music, then pretty stiff in the States, or roll and squeal. They chose the latter and apparently the weed was supplied in part by someone affiliated with 47, which caused immense headaches for staff and management who among other things had to find a replacement for the Spoonful as they'd been run out of town after rolling and squealing. The first LP had just been released. Hundreds of copies were procured - perhaps to sell at the show, maybe in backstock at the Harvard Co-op, then one of the few places to buy LPs. The floor of Club 47 was carpeted with Lovin Spoonful LP covers and trampled upon by the patrons for the entire weekend!

BJH fall into that category of whimsy known as English pastoral least by me anyway! BJH like the softer King Crimson, Caravan, Macdonald & Giles and of course the Moody Blues could only come out of the English music scene. They sound like Vaughan Williams would have done if he had been born 75 or so years later. BJH did some great tracks.....when you are in the mood for whimsy. Not least 'Poor Man's Moody Blues' where they even poked fun at themselves (having been labeled that by the press). American bands could never conjure up the feeling that these English bands the same way as British bands could never quite pull of California sunshine pop.

"Me About You" wasn't written by the Spoonful. I think it was on the last album under the Spoonful's name, but that was basically just Joe Butler with studio musicians. The best version I heard of this tune was on Gary Lewis'lp, except for his vocals! By the way, anyone who wants to help with the "Spoonful of covers", I will send the end result to all who contribute. I have about 12 tunes: Bobby Darin, Flamin' Groovies, Pat Boone, Butthold Surfers. Contact me offlist and we'll work something out. Would love to hear that "Mr Sebastian". Got a version of "Summer In the City" by Mike Melvion. It's on a LP produced by Marshall Lieb and contains a great Bacharach tune, "Looking With My Eyes", much better as an instrumental than the version Dionne does on Hullabaloo. -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

In coming weeks I will also post its flipside, "Zorch Boogie". Both are upbeat numbers featuring the brassier side of the sisters' performance range, which I understand was about the only side until Spector got hold of them. The date is (as far as I know) unknown, but my best information puts it at c.1954.

Message: 24 Date: Tue, 17 Dec 2002 17:40:43 +0000 From: Phil Milstein Subject: music & emotions revisited Today's Boston Globe carried an interesting Associated Press article, which addresses -- and to a certain extent may even answer -- some of the questions raised in our recent discussion (prompted, if I recall, by Peter Lerner (who in turn may have been prompted by his recent marriage!)) on music's special abilities to evoke emotions. The article is about a Dartmouth College study in which musicians had their brains MRI'd during sessions of music listening, to reveal locations of peak activity and other issues of music processing. The results are quite fascinating. --Phil M. ------------------------------------------------ Study Shows How Brain Remembers Music by Associated Press, 12/17/2002 Sounds from the radio slip into a melody and suddenly your mind skips back to an evening of moonlight and romance and happy times. It happens to everybody, but until now science was unsure just why. A new study by researchers at Dartmouth College in Hanover, N.H., suggests that recalling that melody is the job of a part of the brain known as the rostromedial prefrontal cortex. It is the part that remembers music and is even able to recognize a sour note in the midst of a familiar tune. A team led by researcher Petr Janata of Dartmouth's Center for Cognitive Neuroscience explored the mind's memory for tunes by studying the brains of eight musicians as they listened to a bit of original music. Using functional magnetic resonance imaging, which detects the part of the brain active in response to specific stimuli, they found that the ability to recognize music is contained in a centrally located area just behind the forehead. Janata said that part of the brain also plays a key role in learning and in the response and control of emotions. "Our results provide a stronger foundation for explaining the link between music, emotion and the brain," Janata said. In the study, eight people who had studied music for at least 12 years listened to the music and were asked to pick out specific tones and to detect notes played by a flute-like instrument instead of a clarinet which had dominated the music. As they performed these tasks, the functional MRI tracked which parts of the brain were active. The researchers reported that the brains of each of the subjects tracked the sounds in a slightly different way each time the music was played. This may be the reason the same music, in different times, may prompt different emotions. Janata said the fact that the brain is naturally wired to appreciate and remember music suggests that the pleasant sounds were an important part of the human mind from the earliest of times. "It's not necessary for human survival, yet something inside us craves it," Janata said. "I think this research helps us understand that craving a little bit more." -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
