I know of at least two other early Gibb Brothers songs recorded by 
Young:  "After Dark" and "I Am The World".   He also did a good 
version of the Easybeats' "Good Evening Girl".

Hi A friend sent me an mp3 file of what appears to be Mick Jagger singing Da doo ron ron. He got it from a friend who also got got it from a friend etc...The voice of the singer really sounds like Mick's voice but the quality of the recording is certainly not very good. Some sort of bootleg, no doubt about it. Anybody knows anything about it? Denis Gagnon -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Doug Gibbon? The same Doug Gibbons who recorded Jackie DeShannon / Jimmy Page's "I got my tears to remind me" on Decca? Great record, great singer - yes he does sound like Jagger!

One thing that needs to be added is that a lot of the programmes still have their original commercials intact. I think the Shindig shows are a case in point. It's been about 4 years since I've been there, but what a terrific resource! Recently I purchased a couple of bootlegs of old Hullaballoo programmes (Shindig's competition, but a little more square and occassionally showbizzy). Wonderful stuff and some of the later episodes are in colour. Curiously though one episode introduces the Ronettes as a featured act on the show but they never the end of the programme when it comes to the Hullaballoo A Go Go segment they're seen dancing among the 'kids'. Does anyone know if they ever performed? Or maybe the number was cut for legal purposes (like the Rolling Stones in TAMI show). N -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 7 Date: Tue, 31 Dec 2002 21:42:51 +0000 From: Keith Beach Subject: Re: Museum Of Television And Radio, NY I went to the Museum Of Television And Radio, NY some 10 years back. My first priority was to look for the Lucille Ball TV special from the 60's 'Lucy in London'. They didn't have it then, but they might now. Just in case it needs's important because we believe the Ronettes did a song over the opening credits. I don't know anyone who has this in any form. Maybe the next Spectropop member there could check it out for us. Keith Beach -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Or any other Sheep singles? Boom 60,007 THE SHEEP - I Feel Good/Dynamite "I Feel Good" reached #32 on WQAM in Miami on May 28, 1966. Former WQAM d.j. Roby Yonge told me "Hide & Seek" by the Sheep was a "play for pay" tune at the station, if you know what I mean. Jeff Lemlich -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
