Message: 4 Date: Sun, 23 Feb 2003 13:47:12 EST From: Mike Rashkow Subject: Re: Johnny Cymbal Hello Group, Long time no write. Sick puppy, busy boy. So, there was a flurry of postings about Johnny Cymbal awhile back. It encouraged me to contact Carol Cymbal his first wife, mother of his children and keeper of the flame as well as many copyrights, demos, sheet music and anecdotes. I suggested she join the group, but whether that will happen or not is a question only the Lord can answer. In any event, she is interested in hearing from anyone about John or his music and you can e-mail her at As for some postings a while ago having to do with the Ellie Greenwich/Mike Rashkow composition "I Hear Grass Singing". I've been waiting 35 years hoping they would legalize weed so this song could be used as a jingle for the first mass marketed product. I should live so long. As for me, I'm stuck on Alison Krauss and Union Station. Rashkovsky In The Bosom Of Bluegrass and Loving It -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 5 Date: Sun, 23 Feb 2003 20:23:34 -0000 From: Kingsley Abbott Subject: Re: Bettye LaVette Nice to read Mick's praise of Betty(e) Lavette. He was too modest to mention his involvement in the Westside CD of about 3 years ago - 'Betty Lavette & Carol Fran - Bluesoul Belles' WESM 549. This CD features Betty's complete Calla recordings, (eight on the CD) which are indeed wonderful. I'd also have to say just how much I loved Carol Fran's 16 tracks of her Port and Roulette material. I don't know whether or not this release is still available, but if it is, I'd recommend it to any lovers of mid sixties femme soul. I've dug it out to play again this week...

If anyone can help me, I'm trying to compile a > discography, and I'm certainly trying to find anyone who knew him. Emily, You're aware of Tony Romeo's work with Lou Christie, yes? If not, might I recommend an immediate visitation to this webpage: This site is the creation of Harry Young. What he doesn't know about Lou just ain't worth knowing. "I'm Gonna Make You Mine" - great record! I believe I know someone who knew Tony Romeo, in the biblical sense. I'll get back to you on that .............................. perhaps.

If not, have they sorted out a website yet? They had some great releases - Little Eva, Tommy James... Regards, Guy. -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 8 Date: Sun, 23 Feb 2003 22:29:04 -0800 From: Ken Silverwood Subject: Re: Bettye LaVette I had the privilege of seeing Miss Bettye in April 2002 at a large Northern do here in Blackpool, where she was accompanied by a band led by her long time producer Rudy Robinson. She is a very magnetic artist and a superb song interpreter. Unfortunately, as I said this was a Northern do and the amount of uptempo numbers performed was at a minimum, not Bettye's fault, wrong booking. Anyway I had recently bought a book titled "Ladies Of Soul" by a David Freeland because it had a chapter on Timi Yuro. In it he has conducted interviews with 7 Ladies, being the aformentioned Timi, Denise LaSalle, Ruby Johnson, Barbara Mason, Carla Thomas, Maxine Brown and Miss Bettye Lavette, well, blow me down if the same David Freeland was accompanying Bettye on her visit to the UK, and the next day they were conducting an interview on the radio in Manchester. Anyway I spoke for a while to David mainly about Timi Yuro, sad to have such a marvellous voice as that and not able to use it, and of course got the book signed, I never got to meet Bettye but David said she was a real feisty character and comes across as so in his interview. This April I believe we are going to have Sidney Barnes ("I Hurt On The Other Side" etc). He should be more in keeping with the venue.
