Message: 3 Date: Sun, 04 May 2003 21:59:04 -0700 From: Jeffrey Glenn Subject: Request for Gary Zekley-related info For a project I'm finishing up I'm looking for the credits from the 45 (or LP) labels/covers for the following: 1. Clydie King - Missin' My Baby (Imperial 66139) - think it's written by J. Riopell-G. Zekley, need any production/arrangement or other credits from 45 label. 2. Renato E Seus Blue Caps - A Garota Que Eu Quero (AS 14 MAIS VOL. XXIV - CBS 37669, Brazil LP) - this is a Brazilian cover of The Fun And Games' "The Grooviest Girl In The World" on a 1970 Brazilian various artists compilation LP, need producer/arranger and whatever other credits might be listed. 3. The Fun And Games - It Must Have Been The Wind (Cinema ?, 1968) - this is the original pre-LP version of this song issued on a small independent label, need the catalog number and any producer/arranger credits etc. from the 45 label. 4. Today I found a 1966 45 by The Clique - "Drifter Medley"/ "Sun Come Up" (Laurie 3365). Is this the same Clique that recorded for Cinema and Scepter in 1967 before being produced by Gary Zekley from 1968-70 (including of course the hit "Sugar On Sunday"). THAT Clique WAS active in Austin in 1966, so it's possible. This 45 - the A-side of which is a medley of Drifters' tunes - was produced by Marty Foglia, the only Google reference of whom that I could find placed someone by that name as an engineer at WABC. "Sun Come Up" is a very early Jim Croce composition (released the same year on his first LP "FACETS"). But is this the same group? Thanks for any and all help!

Message: 4 Date: Mon, 05 May 2003 14:18:36 -0000 From: Patrick Rands Subject: Johnny Nash / Deirdre Wilson Tabac Over the weekend I heard the Johnny Nash version of "What Kind of Love Is This" - a song which was a hit by Joey Dee. I'm just about as a big a Joey Dee fan as you'll ever find, but from what I heard the Johnny Nash version blew away Joey's version. Anyone know anything more about Johnny Nash? Any of his recordings available from that time period? I saw there is a Marginal disc but anything more current around (for his 60s sides)? How are the Phil Spector-produced sides that he did? Also if anyone knows anything about the Deirdre Wilson Tabac please give me some information. I heard the BEST version of the Beatles' "Get Back" by them from 1970, which apparently is available on a compilation right now. Anyone know the name of this compilation please?? Doing a Google search found a Jazzman Records release (on 45) out of the UK, are there any others? :Patrick -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 5 Date: Mon, 05 May 2003 17:15:51 +0100 From: Ken Silverwood Subject: Mystery track! Does anyone out there know what track 25 disc 2 of the "Bob Crewe presents The Dynovoice Story" CD is? I always forget to ask when I write. It's a girl singer. Hazarding a guess I think the title could be "A Feeling Of Love". Before anyone asks, it's not listed on the cover or back. Expecting an avalanche of answers. Ken On The West Coast -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Here's the story from the horse's mouth: Jim Holvay himself. Kane & Abel were members of Little Artie & the Pharoahs of Milwaukee. Originally titled "A Man Ain't Supposed to Cry", the name was changed to "Break Down & Cry" after it began getting airplay on WVON in Chicago. When Holvay went out on the road as a backing musician for the Dick Clark Caravan of Stars (the tour with Brian Hyland), someone had re-written the words and it was called "He Will Break Your Heart"!! Mike & Michael were Mike Thomasetti (who had solo 45s) and Mike Covaldo, both singers in the Nobles (USA records). Their manager was trying anything to get them a hit those days, thus, group/solo/ duet releases. Oddly, a few years later they became Neighborhood (odd, because the 45 you speak of is "My NEIGHBORHOOD"!) and had a hit with "Big Yellow Taxi"! Small world, huh? Especially when someone from England is asking about obscure artists from Chitown!! By the way, all of these songs are part of what Jim Holvay wants to get released in a "Best of" CD soon. Anyone have a label for him? Thanks, Clark Besch -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 7 Date: Mon, 05 May 2003 16:48:01 -0000 From: Gary Campbell Subject: Re: Dick Campbell Song Clark Besch wrote: > Anyway, Gary, in case you did not know, England's label > Cherry Red is reissuing the Dick Campbell album on CD! I talked to Cherry Red about putting out my father's Mercury album as a CD. I had contacted Mercury to make sure this would be OK and found out that even though I have the masters, the recordings belong to Mercury for life. I am in the process of having the rights to my dad's music transferred to me and then I am going to try to cut a deal with Mercury to have this put out on a small label, which they seemed to think wouldn't be a big problem. If Cherry Red has already done this, then I think that is fantastic, (the whole point being to have my father's music reach as wide an audience as possible). In the meantime, I have made a deal with Cherry Red Records to put out a sequel CD to the "Beyond The Shadow of Doubt" CD released on Dreamsville records in Japan in 2001. This CD will be 12 songs written by Gary Usher and Dick Campbell with Dick performing all the lead singing, guitar and keyboards, with Gary Usher singing back-up on some tracks. The CD will also contain 4 more tracks written by Campbell and/or Campbell and others (such as Steve Hoffman of Lancelot link fame and also Keypashine Golesorkhi). These songs were written around the same time as the Usher/Campbell songs and go really well with them. All the songs on the CD have the same style of harmony as the BTSOD CD. I also have about 20 more unpublished songs by Campbell/Usher that may come out in the future that is more of a surf/hotrod type of music. All these songs are previously unpublished. I am also talking to Cherry Red and a couple of other small labels about putting out some more of Campbell's unpublished works. I will try to post another mp3 later today from the "Blue Winds Only Know" CD coming out on Cherry Red soon. (That is my suggestion for the title to the CD and may not actually be what it comes out as.) Gary Campbell -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

I am keen to obtain this CD. I played on this single in 1961. I will be happy to give any background information to this record -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
