The Beatles 1966 US tour was written up by Barry Tashian 
(of Barry And The Remains) in a book entitled, "Ticket To 
Ride - The Extraordinary Diary Of The Beatles Last Tour". 
Most of the pics in the book are of the Beatles but there 
is one page showing the supporting acts (Cyrkle, Bobby Hebb,
Ronettes). Under the Ronettes pic, the caption reads: 
"(Ronnie Spector was not on the tour, her cousin Elaine 
stood in for her); Estelle Bennett, Nedra Talley and Elaine". 
There is another pic of Nedra Talley jumping a rope held
by Ted Dawes of the Cyrkle and Elaine of the Ronettes.

The book is published by Dowling Press, Inc. of Nashville, 
Tennessee (Barry's home town now - not for him those cold 
Boston winters) and retailed at $19.95

There is a picture of her as part of the group at John Rausch's super Ronettes website: I think some other shots include Elaine too, e.g. Shea Stadium shots, but I'm sure other members can give more authoritative replies than me.

Message: 4 Date: Sat, 28 Dec 2002 09:26:24 -0800 (PST) From: Steve Harvey Subject: Ronettes on tour with the Beatles I caught the Ronettes with the Beatles when they did Philly in '66. Never saw a picture of the Ronnie-less Ronettes. Don't remember much about the concert except that it took forever for the Beatles to come on. As a 12 year old I didn't appreciate the fact that I was seeing the Ronettes, Remains and Bobby Hebb. I can remember being pissed that the Beatles did nothing off their new LP, "Revolver". They seemed like a totally different group from the one I was listening to on "Revolver". Then they disappeared for over a year and came back with "Sgt. Pepper". Played it and thought, "These guys still know how to write a hook". -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

I'd like to point out, in case you don't know this, that Rhino is now wholly owned by Warner Music Group, and acts as the reissue division for Warner Bros., Elektra, Atlantic and some of the subsidiary labels like Sire. Because they're part of the WEA labels, they don't tend to focus on licensing music owned by the other major labels any longer (Universal, BMG, etc.) and from this point onward, you'll no doubt start seeing more reissues branded with Warner Archives, Elektra Traditions and sometimes the Rhino logo, but the company is no longer an "oldies label", as you point out.

Message: 8 Date: Sat, 28 Dec 2002 20:29:13 +0000 From: Robert Beason Subject: Hang On Sloopy Today my local classic rock station played a version of the McCoys' "Hang On Sloopy" with an additional verse that I'd never heard before. It began, "Sloopy put your red dress on..." Why haven't I ever heard this expanded version before and where did it come from? Was the long version ever issued on vinyl? And which CD(s) is the long version on? I know I can count on the experts of Spectropop nation to satisfy my curiosity! Bob Beason -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 9 Date: Sat, 28 Dec 2002 18:35:40 EST From: Mike Rashkow Subject: Back to the Teacho Picking up on an old thread, Teacho Wiltshire, I now have my 45s again available and was able to check out some things. Many people know that he did the chart on one of the great all time 60s group records: "Tell Him" by The Exciters--a very cool, mid-tempo kind of latin feel. But if you can find the uncharted and unknown "Goin Wild", by a later incarnation of the "My True Story", Jive Five, you will hear one of the most fired up, cooking up-tempo in your face R&B killer charts I've ever heard--Sonny Sanders eat your heart out--arranged by Teacho. Anecdotally, when I first came to NY from LA, the voice coach and producer, writer, arranger, Eddie Beal (Robins, Jean Turner, etc.) gave me Teacho's name and told me to see him as my first contact in NYC. Well I got an appointment with Teacho and he listened to my demos and said, "Son, you might want to find something else to do in the music business instead of singing".

Too much of it rings oh so true :) or I think many of you 'vinyl-holics' will be able to relate to this article! Happy Holidays, Neb -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
