That song is a Top 10 on the Jimmy Bee Spectropop Platters that Mattered. What are the chords? Major 7th's? JB/voicing a few piano chords these daze -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 2 Date: Sun, 04 May 2003 12:13:37 -0700 From: John Frank Subject: "Just keep walkin'..." Country Paul: Nancy Sinatra's "June, July and August" wasn't recorded by Linda Laurie. You may be thinking of Linda's, "All Winter Long", which does contain that phrase -- and which is included, along with her "Where Do You Go", on the double CD collection Dream Girls. The wonderful Hey! Look What I Found series from Canada contains "Ambrose" on volume 3. Mikey: If you're looking for the early Nancy Sinatra material that Marginal issued, one possibility in locating it might be an ad that I've seen either in Goldmine or Discoveries from a guy who was selling a LOT of these Marginal compilations. It appeared pretty frequently as a large-sized ad in the front section of the magazine. Not sure if it still runs, though. Sorry, can't remember any more about the vendor, except I think he had a New Hampshire address. All this talk of Nancy Sinatra led me to Varese's "You Go-Go Girl", on which Nancy sings Lincoln Chase! 1969's "Zodiac Blues" fits right in with the wacky stuff he wrote for Shirley Ellis earlier in the decade. Rob Stride: I was gob-smacked when I found a version of the Crystals' "He Hit Me And It Felt Like a Kiss" on Jody Miller's "Home Of The Brave" LP. I thought it bizarre that anyone would actually cover it -- and then to (over)sing it without a hint of tongue-in-cheek only added to its strangeness. Anyway, an addition to your list of Spector covers if you don't have it already. Ken Silverwood: It's My Party also does a version of "Can I Get To Know You Better" on their CD entitled, strangely enough, "Can I Get To Know You Better" Take care, John -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
