Dan Hughes follows on: > One of my favorite albums is by Paul Hampton: REST HOME FOR CHILDREN, > on the Crested Butte label from the mid 70's I think. I had never > heard of him" Yes, "Donna Means Heartbreak" was a Hal David-Paul Hampton composition as was Don Gibson's "Sea Of Heartbreak" (RCA, 1961). I came across Paul while starting to collect early Burt Bacharach compositions. Burt and Paul shared songwriting credits on Gene Vincent's "Crazy Times" (Capitol, 1960). As Dan points out, Paul Hampton's acting career began in 1958 - about the same time he started putting out some nice teen/ rockabilly 45s. His most accomplished achievements, though, were as a songwriter. In addition to those mentioned above, his songs have been recorded by greats such as Ral Donner, Billy Fury, Leroy Van Dyke, Johnny Tillotson, Sonny James, Ketty Lester, the 4 Aces and the Baja Marimba Band. Paul is another unsung hero from the early 60s whose career is now receiving some attention courtesy of the internet. Yes again, Gene Pitney did wail some great stuff. He has a terrific website at: Gene will be 62 this year and as you can see he is getting ready for his annual UK tour. Gene lists his top–15 favorite recordings on the site and I am pleased to find that, in addition to "Donna Means Heartbreak", "Keep Tellin' Yourself" is also there. Written with Tony Powers and also recorded by Marv Johnson (UA, 1963) this is Ellie Greenwich's finest song. (Did I really say that?). In the box marked "composed by Gene", we find the Crystals' "He's A Rebel". A quality Saturday morning, to be sure. Mike Edwards -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Cassidy Subject: New soft drink commercial CD Following up on the recent discussion here about 1960's soft drink spots featuring rock 'n' roll stars, Collector's Choice has a new release entitled "Swingin' Soft Drink Spots of the '60s," which actually only covers the years 1964 and 1965, according to the blurb. The track listing is not yet up at this link, but you can see the cover art and read a description: The 2-CD set also includes radio jingles and DJ stuff and "a mini-documentary on the development of radio advertising." Now on sale for $17.96. Jim Cassidy -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

I am glad you enjoyed the interview. I appreciate Mike asking me to do it. It brought back a lot of good memories, and reminded me that Murray, Jerry, Stuart and I, have been out of touch with each other, for a very long time. I remember that somewhere, I have an old acetate of the Al Martino version of "I Can See Only You". It was on one of his albums. Is that the version you are familiar with?

Message: 8 Date: Sat, 04 Jan 2003 16:51:00 -0500 From: Country Paul Subject: Re: Ikettes, Spoonful, Paris Sisters Bob Rashkow wrote (way back in December): > Did the Atco personnel always sound kind of like The Shirelles [?]....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. "I'm Blue" is about as hardcore an Ike & Tina sound as you could hope for; GREAT record. Another, complete with a blood-curdling gutteral hack by the lead singer, is "Peaches & Cream," on Modern - a major treat. Never knew they ever sounded like the Shirelles. Artie Wayne, interesting that Columbia passed on the Spoonful. I always thought it a large tribute to the band that they became so big on an independent label. Imagine what Columbia's muscle would have done for them. I join in remembering Zal - he was amazing live, everywhere on the guitar, totally at ease and always appropriate. Phil Milstein wrote: > As a treat for Paris Sisters lovers among y'all, now playing at musica is > one of their earliest and rarest recordings, "The Bully Bully Man," > written by Jimmy Drake aka Nervous Norvus (the connection involves the > fact that both were Bay Area acts). Very strange - as I may have said before, it's amazing that Phil Spector heard the sound he did coming from this group after recordings like this! I appreciate the historical context, Phil - thanks! (And thanks too for the science of musical memory; fasinating, but it edoesn't help me get unforgettable musical hooks out of my head when I'm trying to get to sleep!)

Message: 9 Date: Sat, 04 Jan 2003 22:09:27 -0000 From: Mike Edwards Subject: Re: 4 Seasons etc James Botticelli writes (re: 4 Seasons' rip off songs): > Ace UK put out a CD compilation back in '92 called "Laurie Vocal > Groups: The Sixties Sound". Interestingly enough, the 4 Seasons are on this CD of soundalikes. They back Bernadette Carroll on Nicky (Laurie, 1964), a song written by group members Bob Gaudio and Nick Massi. Maybe it is time for the "on what songs did the 4 Seasons sing back-up" thread to unravel a little. Here are a few to start: 2. Hal Miller & The Rays – An Angel Cried (Topix, 1961). A Bob Gaudio song also done by the 4 Seasons on their 1964 Rag Doll album and the Castells (Decca, 1965). 3. Wade Flemons – Watch Over Her (VJ, 1964). Written by Frankie Valli and Bob Gaudio. 4. Eddie Rambeau – Clock (Dyno Voice, 1966). Not sure about this one. A fascinating title as it was written by Hayes-Grainger-Wadey, the same team who wrote Black Is Black for Los Bravos – seemingly way outside of the Bob Crewe circle! OK, there's four, including Nicky. Anybody think of any more? James B listed some groups who were 4 Seasons soundalikes and we were reminded of the Classics' Pollyanna. Any more? I would continue this thread with: 1. 4 Evers – Be My Girl (alt. title: Please Be Mine) (Smash, 1964). Written by Bob Gaudio with an arrangement by Charles Calello. 2. 4 Evers – (Say I Love You) Doo Bee Dum (Smash, 1964). Less obvious as Charlie Calello wasn't there and the song was written by group member Joe DiBeneditto. 3. Wonder Who – Don't Think Twice (Philips, 1965). Same sound, same label; had to be them, right? 4. Castells – An Angel Cried (see above). West meets East as Gary Usher produced this in LA. Apparently, the 4 Evers backed Eddie Rambeau on a couple of tunes, one of which was Concrete And Clay. Maybe that was them on Eddie's Clock (see above)?

In the UK, Tommy Roe's records were on the HMV label, which was a subsidiary of EMI. EMI's head office at the time was situated in Manchester Square, London W1, & the aforementioned Diane was a secretary / receptionist working there who happened to catch young Mr. Roe's eye. Incidentally, the building was the scene of the cover photo of the Beatles' "Please Please Me" album. Brian -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

I'm up for it, Phil. I am going to try and play some lesser known Brill Building items that I have acquired. First off is Dorothy Jones with "Takin' That Long Walk Home", a Goffin-King song from 1961. This was issued on Columbia with a picture sleeve in 1961. John Clemente ably documents Dorothy's career, both as a solo artist and as a member of the Cookies, in his book, "Girl Groups". Next is Tony Orlando with "What Am I Gonna Do" from Neil Sedaka and Howard Greenfield. This was covered in the UK by Billy Fury as the b- side of "Do You Really Love Me Too", which was also a cover of a US song by Barbara Chandler (Kapp, 1963). Looking back, it seems that Tony did a lot of demos for Billy Fury! Where they both recorded the same song ("Halfway To Paradise" etc), Billy wins it every time in a head to head sing-off.

Message: 14 Date: Sun, 05 Jan 2003 09:47:03 EST From: Jimmy Crescitelli Subject: Re: Child Accents Caroline & Sandy, Thanks for the accent input. It didn't occur to me that elocution lessons may have had something to do with it. Virginia Weidler... "You're bettah than awwwl the liooons and tigahhhs and elephannnts in the whole wide woooooold." SHEESH !! LOL ! Yes, the "rounded vowel" is key here. Joan uses it in a polished manner when speaking to screen underlings... Also, it occurs to me that many many Hollywood achievers "aspired to class" (to borrow a phrase), and a "British" accent was considered part of the acquired baggage; and from my reading, people used to assume that sort of accent when attending formal gatherings. (Doesn't someone mention Joan using it on occasion in "real life?" That might just have been a rude comment.) Back then, changing one's accent was probably considered important if you wanted to succeed... these days it doesn't appear quite as important, though there IS an Upper East Side New York accent that is still acquired by climbers on the prowl LOL ! The accent is probably related to what they call a "Transatlantic" accent, which was the voice once heard on liners coursing the Atlantic between New York and Britain. At least in the movies ! ==Jimmy== (Who speaks with a combination Brooklyn-Alabama-North Dakota patois himself.) -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Message: 19 Date: Sun, 05 Jan 2003 18:13:11 -0000 From: Kingsley Subject: Re: Ripples Comps Paul R asked about the possibility of more Ripples comps - We've done eight so far, plus four 'Ripples Presents...' individual artists ones (Overlanders, Freshmen, Bystanders & Jefferson) so more may stretch the concept a bit too far. The above accounts for getting on 300 tracks, and some that I've listened to really are a bit grim. We've tried to keep up the musical standard along the way, making what sounds right together the first criteria for selection and compilation each time. We could go on, but probably not without straying into other compilation series' territory. I'd reckon that there is probably enough material to do an out & out commercial 'pop' on (eg there is a cover of 'People Say' by Flying Machine I believe), but It won't happen if sales don't justify it. The last one I reckon was one of the best, but didn't gain any mainstrem reviews and very little advertising, so must rely on word of mouth thru sites like this. I'd love to see it get to ten regular volumes, but I somehow doubt it...besides...I have other ideas!! Love to be proved wrong though!

I haven't checked for a WKBW website, but WPTR was vertainly deserving (as WKBW would be). Also among those greats was an alma mater of mine, WDRC, Hartford (, which also devotes space to its in-town competition, WPOP. Hartford and Buffalo shared some great jocks, including the (in)famous Joey Reynolds and Sandy Beach. If you're into DJ airchecks, also check out; Ed Brouder (curator of the WDRC site) is one of the premier aircheck collectors in the country (tell him Country Paul sent you if you e-mail him). And finally, less musically-adventurous but home to some of the greatest on-air talent ever, there's, celebrating WABC, New York. (The website has had almost 1.8 million hits, by the way.)

Anyone: has this made it to any CD reissues? Marc Miller: thanks for the Israel Kamakawiwo'ole lead (again, One can see why he called his label "Big Boy."

Thanks for coming along, Carol-Anne. It's always nice to see a new face at such gatherings, especially a female one. Planet Spectropop can be a bit of a boys domain sometimes. Fortunately, our parties are never short of ladies........Hello Sheila B (all the way from New York), Helen L, folk diva Charlotte G, Karen L, Marion, Beryl S, Kathy S, m'dear sis Gwen F, Pam B, Tanya, Philippa, Sue R and Samski. Chaps, what Sue Roberts and Sam Szczepanski can't tell about Dean Martin and Elvis ain't worth knowin'! It took a whole gang of us to put the shindig together. Phil C, for example, supplied and installed the sound and projection gear, while Keith B slaved over two VCRs to put together the video entertainment. And that very nice man who checked you all in at the door and handed out the complimentary party packs was Eric. Spectropop's very own lovely mascot chanteuse Miss Elisabeth K provided the evening's live entertainment, along with Tourette, Kidgette, Crepe Suzette, Clarinette, Strumpette, Crumpette, Balconette and Delia Dansette (says he reading their multi- coloured names from his birthday card), better known to many of us as the glittering go go-tastic dancing Actionettes. All, I might add provided their services solely out of the kindness of their hearts. The event also marked the launch of Elisabeth's debut CD EP featuring her recordings of six gorgeous girl-pop songs. If you weren't there, you missed it, HA! Tomorrow is going to be such an anti-climax (sigh). MICK PATRICK -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Good Day At The Thrift Shop Report: Yesterday at my favorite thrift shop I found some unusually good LP's. Among the George Shearing Latin Stereo Lp's, Mighty Clouds of Joy, Noro Morales, and Osmonds, was a Coronet (read cheap label) recording called "At The Hop" featuring The Four Seasons and The Buggs. The Seasons do "Comme Si Bella" and "This Is Real". The Buggs do "London Town Swing" and "Teddy Boy Stomp". Great Beatlesploitation work for The Buggs. And it definitely was The Seasons, their picture even graces the cover... JB -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
