Ben Tate was aka Sonny Marshall, see for a bit more on him, 
including a photo. He sure doesn't look like he sounds. If 
you can provide (off-list would be fine) writer credits for 
2142, I can add it officially to the Ronnie discog.

> And these just the TITLES!

Welcome to the mystical, magical world of song-poem music. 
It hardly gets any weirder.

> Oi gavult, the songs could never live up to it! Could they?

Once in a while, once in a while:

> And there are affiliated labels???

In this case affiliated by dint of the Nashville studio 
(Globe) that Ronnie most often subcontracted to do their 
recordings, rather than by more subterranean business 
relations. I never did find out who actually operated 
Ronnie. Someone named Ronnie, I suppose, but I wouldn't bet 
the house on it.

Thanks for the new add,
--Phil M.

"Blizzard of Ahhhs" is OK, "Look On" is better; "Listen To The Bells Ring" could be the "great lost Ronettes track," except that Lisa doesn't quite sound like Ronnie. A winner nonetheless, even in "lo-fi" play. But the big score is "XMass=Tyme2"; if Spector and Wilson could have collaborated, they might have come up with this. (Somehow the ending feels tacked on, though.) The first 4/5 of it is certainly worth more than one listen! Artie Wayne, when you were working with the Kingsmen, were you involved with my favorite song by them, "The Wolf of Manhattan"? (It's a fave of WFMU listeners - "Run, run, run and hide, take your baby to the Jersey side.") I know it was also one of two B-sides of one of their hits - I have it on a CD reissue, and it has hit written all over it. Very atypical sound for them - smooth and melodic. Do you have any background on this track, please? Any idea why it was never an A side?....Also re: Scepter, were you there when a group called Condello covered the Incredible String Band's "(I Bid You) Goodnight"? Do you or anyone on this list have any info on that track? Was there an LP? And if so, was it any good? Bergen White, "It's Over Now" (at musica) is very nice - sort of Beach Boys Light (NOT "lite" - there's some substance here). Thanks for posting it! It was also nice to hear the Sonny James track - I hadn't realized he'd taken a side trip to NRC between Capitol stints. (If the younger members of the group don't know his big hit, "Young Love," treat yourselves - it's a 2:30 masterpiece. Tab Hunter's "golden throat" version couldn't even hold Sonny's guitar strap.) Phil Milstein wrote: > The Dickens were an NRBQ offshoot, whose one and only record was > the unreleased (and promos-only) Scepter pressing. Were any members of "the Q" in The Dickens? Simon White mentioned Bobby Paris. I know he was on Capitol, but my favorite 45 of his is "Who Needs You"/"Little Miss Dreamer" on Chattahoochee. Two astounding sides. Any info on him around?

Yes and no. Not in the official lineup of the group. However, Joey Spampinato was brought in to play bass on their Scepter session, and, by convoluted circumstance, he and Keith Spring wound up active participants on the "Sho' Need Love" side, which they co-composed. --Phil M. -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Dunno about Elvis/Cliff, but one of those may well be a choon from "The Sound of Music"! Clarion was the Perth label where such Western Australian acts as Johnny Young and Ray Hoff & the Offbeats recorded.

Has there ever been a song that was covered by many 60s Pop artists, sounded like a hit, yet NEVER was a hit? BTW Gary Lewis did a cover of "You Didn't Have To Be So Nice" on his "She's Just My Style" LP. (basic LP filler) I did a search for the song on Gracenote and Mark Wirtz recorded the same song on his "Go-Go Music Of The Mark Wirtz Orchestra And Chorus" CD - would love to hear it. -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 10 Date: Thu, 19 Dec 2002 22:17:50 -0000 From: Mike Edwards Subject: Roger Scott; WPTR 1540 from Albany, NY Ref: Roger Scott and James Hamilton. Thanks to all who wrote in. Kingsley Abbott writes: > I feel that, had they lived, both those lovely gentlemen > would be sure to be Spectropoppers No doubt about it (see below). A search for Roger Scott on Yahoo brought up a website for a regional radio station, The WPTR Tribute Site ( This appears to be one of those Wolfman Jack type stations that broadcast over a very wide area – in this case, the Northeast USA and Southeast Canada. Roger worked here (the station was in Albany, NY) from February thru' November 1966 and the website has a 22 minute stream of his last broadcast before he left to take a job in Montreal. You can listen with Realplayer by clicking on "Sounds" and scrolling down to "Roger Scott's final broadcast at WPTR - November 1966". And there he is with that same bubbly enthusiasm he brought to London's Capital Radio in the 1970s. Al Quaglieri, who I believe is the same person as the one responsible for numerous CD reissue projects, contributed this stream. (Sundazed's headquarters at Coxsackie, NY is about half an hour from Albany). The playlist for Roger's farewell show has been edited but we get to hear: Sandie Shaw/Tomorrow (Roger: I really do think that's a fantastic song) Cyrkle/Please Don't Ever Leave Me Los Bravos/Going Nowhere James & Bobby Purify/I'm Your Puppet Freddy Cannon/The Dedication Song Seagulls/Don't Go Out Into The Rain Paris Sisters/I Love How You Love Me (Roger credits this as being his all time favorite tune – thus he was already a Spectropopper) Tommy Roe/Hooray For Hazel Bobby Vinton/Coming Home Soldier (a request from someone serving in Vietnam) [Some decidedly non-top 40 items in this bunch] This is very cool website with pics of the past DJs (including Roger), radio surveys, and memorabilia items. My favorite: "The Beatles magazine "Imported by WPTR" Interesting import, since these were printed right here in Albany!" Like most Spectropoppers, I love to peruse old regional playlists for titles that were not on the hot-100. The one for the week at July 23, 1966 features a pic of Roger Scott and the following chart entries: 09 Deep Six/Counting 13 Myddle Class/Don't Let Me Sleep Too Long 15 Tidal Waves/Farmer John 33 Clefs Of Lavender Hill/Stop - Get A Ticket The list also includes such "Picks au Go Go" as: Billy Joe Royal/Campfire Girls James Brown/This Old Heart Sundy Funnies/She's Not At All Like You 3 & 1/2/Don't Cry To Me Babe Invictas/The Hump Jacobson & Tansley/Dream With Me "Looking Ahead", the station was interested in: Silkie/Born To Be With You Teddy & The Pandas/We Can't Go On This Way Wow! Tough titles, but they are all on this playlist which you can view on the website along with a few other lists. It appears Roger Scott came from England (the streamed broadcast tells us this) and "turned up" in the US much the same way as John Peel did in Texas in the mid 60s. I believe James Hamilton was also in the US at this time as he claimed to have been the first English journalist to interview the Supremes. Interesting people for interesting times. Well, if there is a "Rock And Roll Heaven" you know they've got a helluva DJ roster. Mike Edwards -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Message: 13 Date: Fri, 20 Dec 2002 08:52:11 +1000 From: Lindsay Martin Subject: Footstomp: a song about itself? Here's a bizarre song: "Footstomp", by ex-Shadows Jet Harris & Tony Meehan. (And it is a song, with words, and singing, the B-side of their instrumental hit "Diamonds".) This guy goes "to the corner to buy him(self) a limousine", the kind of thing you do every day, really. Well, either there's some British product (an ice cream? a candy bar?) called a Limousine, or it conveniently rhymes with "record machine" in the next line (Or I misheard the lyric!). On the record machine he hears an annoying song called "Footstomp" which he can't get off his mind. In fact, if he hears it again, he'll do himself in! Obviously some fictitious song, made up for the story: I'm assuming there never was another song called "Footstomp" which inspired this record. But hang on: this record we're listening to is itself called "Footstomp". Surely THIS isn't the song he hates? That would mean this is a song about what an annoying song this is! See the weirdness? It's like one of those photographs of somebody holding a copy of the same photo, and so on forever and ever. Where does it all start? By the way, the chorus (the Footstomp bit) is strangely haunting, more complex in contrast with the mundane storytelling of the verse. And it's kinda catchy, too: in fact, if you get it on your brain, it does end up being fairly annoying. Aaaarrrgh! Who wrote "Footstomp"? They were clearly ahead of their time. It's a post-modernist masterpiece! Lindsay in Oz... who clearly has too much time on his hands now that the Summer vacation is here -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

And MAY be on a compilation. Jimmy, Christmas just ain't Christmas without the Sugar Shack Christmas show. Not enough people are spinning Reggie Lamb's "Christmas Confession" these days. Guess we'll have to stick with the candy canes for our sacharine fix this year. Thanks for answering another unanswered question about the Ambitions. No wonder I could never tell the two versions apart. Great mid-70s Philly sound (or is it New Jersey?) on it. The Ambitions version is on a couple of CD comps on Goldmine and the Executive Suite version is on the one of the "Super Rare Disco" CDs from a few years ago. Will have to track down the Chuck jackson version someday. R.K. -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

But along with my family, bless 'em, another constant has been music and the shared passions of spectropop. I wanted to thank everyone for that. I finished up my first term comments and now we're getting ready to go on christmas break, when I'm going to go for some very simple, elemental, outpatient surgery. Not even general anesthesia. But I won't be able to get to my computer for probably a week. So while I had a quick chance, I wanted to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and Peace. And to say how great it is that I can tell this here, and folks will understand. I just got through grading a set of lab reports down here in my basement office, and it's freaking cold down here I tell you. My bloody fingers are numb! But I have to be down here because my spectropoppy music is all down here and I can play my music while I work and not bother anyone. I have Petula Clark on, and what a wonderful thing it is. I'm listening to Don't Sleep In The Subway, and all of a sudden I'm like 7 years old again, in the back of my dad's maroon Ford Galaxie with the white interior, and we're driving down Concord Pike and Pet Clark's on the radio real loud on WAMS because the windows are open while we drive. There's the McDonalds with the old white tile construction and only walkup windows, no inside to it at all. There's the Charcoal Pit. The Charcoal Pit! With the hamburgers all named for the local high schools, and the jukebox menus in all the booths. There's Simpson's Hobby Shop where I bought all my Revell model car kits. And the 7-11, which was amazingly open from 7 to 11, and you could get those newfangled Slurpees that would freeze your brain if you ate it too quickly. And for Christmas that year I got the astronaut GI Joe with the John Glenn type space suit and a Mercury space capsule, and it even came with a floppy 45 that you could play if you put a couple coins on it so it wouldn't slip on the turntable, and you could hear an actual recording of Glenn during his flight. "Roger, the clock is operating, we're under way!" Oh man, the memories begin to flood over me.

It seems to me that the songs sound different in the movie than on the studio takes - the vocal that is, which doesn´t make any sense since they´re doing them play-back in the movie. Very strange. Anyway, it´s all killer material, so who cares. "Find it", "Come with the gentle people", "In the long run"...Carrie Nations should be inducted into the Rock n´ Roll Hall of Fame immediately. take care Rikard -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Your memories are right from my childhood as I lived from 10 on in Longwood (once airbrushed into Bongweed by some damn pothead, damn that McCartney!) Anyway, all those places were from my childhood too. I remember my mom taking me downtown to WAMS to see Joe Butler of the Spoonful only to find out the station had moved to the sticks of Greenville. Got my autograph picture none the less. The Singer Sewing Machine store once had the Vanilla Fudge signing autographs at the store. Still can't remember the connection between the two. I remember Simpson's In Fairfax. Bought A Hard Day's Night, I'm Telling You Now and Shapes of Things at Mitchells Dept. store located at the same shopping center. Also bought Notorius Byrd Brothers and Sweetheart of the Rodeo for $5, brand new, at some electronic shop there. In the 70s I went to see some band called George Thorogood and the Delaware Destroyers just because they had the word "the" in their name. This was a time when the local hip bands were named "Shakey Jake" and "Scuzzy Frog". The Charcoal Pit named their sundaes after the local high schools, not sure about the burgers. Ever attend the Sidedoor coffeehouses up at the Brandywine Y? Mark Frumento's grandparents use to live right off of Concord Pike. -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

I thought I'd mention that I just picked up two 2fers of the first 4 Everly Brothers albums from their WB period, imported on Germany's WB label. It's Everly Time/A Date With The Everly Brothers and Both Sides Of An Evening/Instant Party Amazing stuff. I've never heard these 4 albums in their entirety, so it was a real thrill to find out that they are easily as good as any of their Cadence material. Lotsa bonus cuts and very nice packaging too. albabe -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
