Message: 1 Date: Tue, 18 Feb 2003 12:13:03 -0000 From: Team Spectropop Subject: Re: When I Get Scared - The Lovelites Story: Re: When I Get Scared - The Lovelites Story http://www.spectropop.com/lovelites/index.htm The Team has been asked by Louise Posnick and Linda Stern of the Lovelites to forward the following personal messages to the group. Over to you, Lovelites... I have just finished reading the eloquent article put together by the Spectropop team. The finished product is nothing less than amazing considering the way we fed information to Mick, retrieving it after so many years, in tiny fragments from both myself and Linda. It was put together with precision and style. Thanks to all for caring, keeping the faith of years gone by, and making both me and Linda feel so special. It has been a wonderful journey. And we have made new friends that we cherish ... what could be better. Most Sincerely, Louise Dear Spectropop Team ... Our thanks go out to all of you ... you 60s enthusiasts, music historians, rockers, and everyone of you ... for your love and interest in music. Phil, Sheila, Mick ... Lou and I are ever so appreciative of your work and your commitment to your passion. This project was a process ... and we enjoyed it from its inception to its successful completion. What a Valentine's Gift it was!! ... truly from the hand of an artist and the heart of an angel. We are in your gratitude ... I hope we have added a little more to the book of girl groups of the sixties and given something back to you ... as we have received so much from our Spectropop involvement. All of you out there, let's keep the site going and support those who devote so much of themselves without monetary compensation.

Message: 2 Date: Tue, 18 Feb 2003 20:38:51 -0500 From: Javed Jafri Subject: radio call letters etc From: "Country Paul" > George Leonard, true about WEVD! Many other stations had > insteresting backstories to their call letters. The company I currently work for once owned the Toronto talk giant CFRB and guess what the letters stand for. Canada's First Rogers' Batteryless. When the station went on the air in 1927 the owner Mr. Ted Rogers sr. was also manufacturing wireless radio receivers and the call letters in effect gave him some free advertising. Also does anyone remember the Brampton Ontario 4 watt giant CHIC. This was the station where the chicks were, yes all female broadcasters. CHIC later morphed into CFNY FM. Toronto's second and last commercial free-form progressive rock station. > A google search revealed K.S. 230 as being The Charlatans 45 "The > Shadow Knows"/"32-20"; don't know if it had an actual release. > Is this the SF or UK Charlatans? Had to be the SF Charlatans since the UK group did not come into existence until the 1980's. Javed -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Message: 5 Date: Tue, 18 Feb 2003 10:23:06 -0500 From: Mike Miller Subject: Re: Matthew Reid's "Jane" hello Country Paul, I am familiar with the recording. it was a Bob Crewe recording, and it is the 4 Seasons on the background vocals. Reid really was a Canadian recording artist known as David C. H'leaureax who later in the 70s became known as D.C.Larue, recording some strange disco type albums. He collaborated with Crewe on about 4-5 singles during the 1961-62 period. He also wrote quite a few singles, for himself and others including a nice song for Diane Renay on the atco label 1962-63 called "Tender". The songs "Jane/Why Start" were released on the ABC-Paramount label along with at least one other single by reid, as well as singles by Crewe himself, Miss Frankie Nolan, and Lenny O'Henry (Daniel Cannon). There is 4 Seasons involvement with most of these singles. After listening to all the Reid singles, I believe that the "Jane"/"Why Start" sides are his best. One side from the Topix label "Lollypops Went Out Of Style" is pretty good too. Reid went on to record 2 more singles on the Decca and Philips labels later in the 60s, but they have no Crewe/Seasons involvement. doowopdaddy -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Anyone know his history? Paul, as of this past December Larry Verne was alive and living at 30000 Sand Canyon Rd. #78 Canyon Country, CA. 91351. Larry Vern Erickson, born 2-8-36 in Minneapolis, was a photographer's assistant in the same building where Darian/DeLory/Van Winkle had their office. Larry says they invited him to watch the recording session and 18 hours later they'd recorded the song with him doing the vocal. The whole story is on page 102 of the Billboard Book of One-Hit Wonders. ---Dan -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Although I chose Timi Yuro, Judi Henske's "Dolphins In The Sea" seems to be a good choice for 'pick of the week' (the second within days 2 (-: ) The song really links up to my view and feelings on the current state of this world.

Javed, that's wonderful-- First Rogers' Batteryless! I guess Spectropop will look just as quaint in 50 years. George -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 11 Date: Tue, 18 Feb 2003 18:19:42 -0500 From: Bob Rashkow Subject: Re: Womack / Verne / Toy Factory Simon White, I recently bought an M- 45 of What Is This? by Bobby Womack. His late 6Ts output was fantastic! Sounds like another Northern Soul raver! Now I would kill for his ORIGINAL recording of "Lookin' For A Love" circa 1969-70! Larry Verne did do a follow-up novelty to "Mr Custer" the name of which escapes me; it did not do well chartwise, it might have been something like Washington Crosses the Delaware or something like that (?!) I'm sure the Billboard One-Hit Wonders book has the exact information. Scott inquired about The Toy Factory--Osborne lists 2 different groups if they really are (don't know!) The one I'm familiar with had a sunshine-pop record on Jubilee called Sunny Sunny Feeling published by Akbestal-Luvlin- Beechwood. Follow the bouncin' ball, kiddies--Hello there sunny feelin'/ It's about time you got here!/Sunny funny (something) bein'/Clouds of doubt just disappear...etc. Bobster -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Message: 13 Date: Wed, 19 Feb 2003 00:42:24 +0000 (GMT) From: M. Anthony Subject: Re: Darling tune Declan Meehan wrote: > ...haven't posted for a while, but watching a VHS copy of > DARLING starring Julie Christie and Dirk Bogarde the other > day got me wondering about the girl group track during one > of the party scenes. Forgive my ignorance, but anyone know > it or who it's by? That darling tune was "Someone To Talk To, Baby" performed by Britain's greatest girl group, the one and only Breakaways. Unfortunately, the track was never released on record. The group's own releases were few and far between. However, at their peak, they were the busiest session singers in the land. Here's a revamped list of acts on whose recordings the girls sang backing vocals. Can anyone add any names to the list: Steve Aldo John Andrews Paul Anka Richard Anthony Antoinette Miki Antony Valerie Avon Burt Bacharach Bachelors Long John Baldry Brigitte Bardot Sandra Barry George Bean Madeline Bell Barry Benson Dave Berry Johnny Bev Cilla Black Tony Blackburn Graham Bonney Tony Brook Elkie Brooks Joe Brown Tommy Bruce Jan Burnnette Ethna Campbell Vicki Carr Carter-Lewis & the Southerners Dany Chandelle Chubby Checker Petula Clark Alma Cogan Cindy Cole Glenda Collins Tony Colton Peter Cook & Dudley Moore Tommy Cooper Louise Cordet Ken Cope Harry H.
