Good choice, Ian, but for many the definitive Val Doonican cut 
will always be "Elusive Butterfly" (UK Decca, 1966)

Just delete it! It is > fraudulent and not from Best Buy. I have received similar emails asking me to give my credit card number to "ebay" to verify for security reasons. The graphics and email address make it look authentic but I have never given a credit card number directly to ebay. I contacted ebay because I smelled a scam and they concurred.

While there has been no official release of "I Won't Turn You Down" on CD, if you check out the JDSAS website, you'll see a CD offered called "Sweet Sherry" that includes all of Jackie's non-LP singles from 1956-62, including the single you are looking for.... http://members.tripod.com/~jackiedeshannon/sweetsherry.html Happy hunting!

I thought I had read this awhile back and > haven't heard anything of recent? Not anytime soon. Carnie has a solo album due out in the months to come. She has recorded "Forever" for the collection, and Brian will be singing with her on a special track. -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Message: 8 Date: Fri, 20 Jun 2003 07:14:27 -0000 From: JJ Subject: Brian Hyland--late 60s stuff Been grooving lately to 3 Brian Hyland albums, i.e. "Tragedy" & "Stay & Love Me All Summer", both Dot '69, and "Brian Hyland" UNI '70.... "Tragedy" includes the FAB "YouŽd Better Stop - And Think It Over" and "You" + more..... "Stay & Love Me All Summer" includes the sublime "Rainy April Morning" and the amazing "DonŽt Cry, Donna," written in collaboration with Del Shannon, and a taster for what would "full-bloom" on the 1970 UNI album. Produced by Del Shannon and 6 trax co-written by Del & Brian, including the AWESOME "On The East Side" + the magic "IŽm Without You." Great LP! Sadly neglected stuff.

Message: 9 Date: Fri, 20 Jun 2003 09:03:43 +0100 From: Ken Silverwood Subject: Re: Walk Tall by Val Completely different song to "Walk Tall Like A Man," but wow, what a concept - Val Doonican on a northern soul compilation. What about that, Simon?? Ken On The West Coast. -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 10 Date: Fri, 20 Jun 2003 11:35:04 -0000 From: Chris Ullman Subject: Japanese 1960s girl pop OK, slightly out on a limb, but still definitely soft-pop, I've been recently purchasing a couple of Japanese 60s pop comps..... Firstly, the "Goodnight Tokyo" compilation, "supervised" by a member of Pizzicato 5. This has some really incredible stuff, in particular Ito Yukari and the Green Ginger - "And Now I Know", which is like a funky Carpenters (no really!) But the showstopper for me is "Yuwakuteki Na Gogo" by Ayumi Ishida, which has one of the most storming brass sections I've heard, totally Brit girl influenced but a supremely unique execution. I tracked down another 3 tracks by her on the "60s Cutie Pop Collection" - "First Date Edit". Now I know there's another 6 CDs in the series, of which "Suki Suki Edit" and "Psychedelic Town Edit" have picked up good reviews in other newsgroups - but seem sadly out of print. So my question - anyone got some good pointers on CDs that are available (and where from), or Japanese 60s/70s girl artists (doesn't have to be restricted to female, the Akira ishikawa tracks on "Goodnight Tokyo" are also superb). I know a bit about the 60s garage groups from Japan, but virtually nothing about the pop. Any pointers are most welcome? Chris -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Message: 12 Date: Fri, 20 Jun 2003 08:57:45 EDT From: Ronnie Allen Subject: Sue Thompson radio interview show has been archived Hi everybody, I am very happy to report that my Sue Thompson Show which I did four days ago has now been permanently archived on a newly-created "Ronnie Allen Show" page on the WBCB website. The URL is: http://www.wbcb1490.com/rallen.htm The page contains archives of my Sue Thompson, "Diane Renay And Friends" and Murmaids shows plus information about my upcoming show Monday (June 23rd) with Paul Evans. That means that you can listen to any of the above three shows any date or time you wish. The archive links are near the bottom of the page. I appreciate very much all of your feedback and welcome your suggestions for artists that you'd like to see me interview on future shows. Please e-mail me at the address below. Gratefully yours, Ronnie Allen E-mail: RonnieOldiesGuy@aol.com -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 13 Date: Fri, 20 Jun 2003 18:39:01 -0000 From: Gary Apollo Subject: Ronettes pricing question Hi, everybody: Just spent an hour or so reading the past few days' worth of posts. I've been a member for a while, but lately have been paying more attention to ng's and following certain threads of interest. I'm in the middle of pricing a couple hundred singles. It can be grueling, when you go at it marathon-like, but I'm determined to get it done and get the records posted to my site asap, as I'm getting more and more boxes of my records out of storage and back here in-hand. I have a question about pricing the two singles below. Can anyone chime in with their advice? Ronettes: Best Part Of Breaking Up b/w Big Red Philles 120, 1964, vg, dj (white label), wol, $__? Ronettes: Born To Be Together b/w Blues For Baby Philles 126, 1965, vg, dj (white label), wol, $__? Both sides non-LP. Thanx in advance, Gary Apollo! http://apollojams.com -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Hmmm. I did play Al Martino's "More Than The Eye Can See" at a "do" last year and got asked if it was Val. Does that count Ken ? -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

What she doesn't know about Japanese pop girls of the 60s and beyond ain't worth knowing. Check out http://www.chachacharming.com for contact info. However, I imagine she'll be a little busy tonight........ Ian PS - If you're looking for 60s retro pop, check out the recordings of Tatsuro Yamashita. His versions of "Guess I'm Dumb", "This Could Be The Night", "Please Let Me Wonder" and "Tokyo's A Lonely Town" are sublime. He even did the Mann/Weil song, "Remember Me Baby", as found on the Chiffons' impossibly rare BT Puppy LP. How obscure is that!! -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
