Lind: You Might Have Heard My Footsteps" for around $11.
This one's got "Elusive Butterfly", "Truly Julie's Blues (I'll Be There)" 
and "Cheryl's Goin' Home".  Back in the
60s, Bob Lind struck me as a guy with a lot of talent and a
style that was right in there; I was surprised he faded so quickly.

So true!  Both of Bob's World Pacifc albums are really good; the
first one is especially fine.  The "Best Of" CD is a
great
package.  And produced by Spectropopper Jack Nitzsche. His later
Capitol album is also very good, in a more country-rock style.

Every time I think about Bob Lind--admittedly not terribly frequently--I think of Peter Sarstedt and "Where Do You Go To (My Lovely)". Anyone have the Sarstedt Skinny? Never heard from him after that one. JB -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

As a fan of Warner Bros early "wide separation" recordings from the late 1950s and early 60s, I'm trying to locate a copy of an LP by Marty Paich/Art Pepper called "I Get A Boot Out Of You" on WS 1349 from 1959. If you have a decent copy for sale, please let me know details, off-list. Thanks. -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Message: 6 Date: Mon, 23 Jun 2003 16:37:06 -0400 From: Stewart Mason Subject: Re: For Your Love/Flo and Eddie Dave Mirich asks: I saw Herman's Hermits last night.... Peter said on stage that their first album had a song "For Your Love" (later rocketed the Yardbirds to sucess), but HHs did not release it as a single because they didn't think it would chart. It appears a long-time collaborator of the Hermits was a fellow by the name of Gouldman who wrote the song, so it might be true. Anybody know about this? Graham Gouldman did indeed write many hits for the Hermits, the Hollies ("Bus Stop" was one of his) and others, along with "For Your Love." (In the '70s, he was one-fourth of 10cc and wrote many of their best songs.) HH recorded "For Your Love" on their first album and their version has been reissued many times. Also, I really enjoyed the Grass Roots and the Turtles playing many of their hits. I loved the Turtles boxed set. I've heard about the Flo and Eddie box. It it worthwhile? No, if you want something that sounds like the Turtles. Yes if you want a relentlessly sarcastic take on the pretentions of '70s rock. While Flo and Eddie were always capable of greatness (their single "Another Pop Star's Life" is one of the great glam-rock songs), the albums are quite uneven and often too beholden to their "concept" to be thoroughly interesting on their own terms.

When you then consider that she's worked and collaborated with Bob Dylan, the Beatles, Van Morrison, Jimmy Page, Brian Wilson, the Byrds...... you know she is one special person. Hi Peter, Yes, Jackie is one of a kind, and we are all richer for having been exposed to her unique point of view. Her literate lyrics and subtle sensuality may not hit everyone, but those who are attuned to what she does in her music, are instant fans. What red blooded male would not love this lady of mystery, charm, and elegance? I was hooked from the time I heard her outsing Patsy Cline on "Faded Love," and when she sang "The Prince," I just melted. I think she's that legendary girl every man falls for, but somehow lets slip away much to their utter lifelong regret. That really is the essence of her magic.

Message: 14 Date: Tue, 24 Jun 2003 00:08:16 +0100 From: Martin Roberts Subject: Party Time!...Dean Martin A few folk have asked how the Dean Martin Festival went and I must say it too was excellent. Sadly, no scantily dressed Go Go dancers but not by a long way was it attended only by maternal grandmothers with blue rinses. Sue and Sam were there at the start on Friday. The events were mainly held in the local school hall with auctions (proceeds going to charity), Dean and Frank lookie-likies singing and Deana Martin and her husband (Sue and Sam described them both as charming) representing the family with photo, autograph and question and answer sessions. There were tours to places of interest and Dean's Roller was parked outside for photos, etc, etc. Like our own party, a very friendly atmosphere. I daresay Sue's enjoyment was heightened due to my absence, but the celebrations were still going on with lots of fun to be had, even when I arrived Saturday afternoon via Pittsburgh. (I must comment on the rail system; surely the safest in the world - I never saw the guard walking in front of the train with a big red flag, but judging by the speed the train travelled at, I know he was there!) Another 'problem' with the language: Our son (born 25th of August 1977) was asked for ID when buying a drink. "How do I do this hon, there is no twenty-fifth month?"!! Getting back to our own Spectropop party - with our far flung membership and the difficulty of travelling for many of us, may I suggest as the next best thing to being there, satellite link-ups around the world?!

The group is called the Faculty, doing a song called "Elevators, Escalators" and the song was issued on the Mercury label circa 1968. This song was arranged by Al Gorgoni, and the b-side is "Don't Leave Me" written by Harry Nilsson. Anybody have any info on this tune, I haven't turned anything up on it anywhere. -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Surprisingly enough, growing up in Kansas gave me access to lots of cool songs on the Wichita radio stations that not only played some really more obscure songs, but charted them very high! "Tragedy" went to #1 and "Stay & Love Me All Summer" was big too. I believe other Hyland songs also did well, but don't remember the titles off hand.......He had several Uni 45s. I've actually been more interested in his '65/'67 era lately...... **Thanx Clark, muchos valid info.....I better try to get those '65/'67 era trax; any chance that the best stuff is included on a CD??

I remember many artists of the time, 1966, talking him up as the next Dylan & deifying him - but poof, he was gone as soon as he'd arrived. I was always a fan of "Cheryl's Going Home " & note it was covered as a single by Adam Faith, The Blues Project & The Cascades.

Message: 18 Date: Mon, 23 Jun 2003 23:28:55 -0000 From: Ian Chapman Subject: Orbisounds/I Could Have Loved You So Well Following on from the Roy Orbison soundalike thread, now playing at musica is Chance Eden's '66 re-working of "I Could Have Loved You So Well." After a low-key, almost murmuring beginning, Chance really goes for the Orbison vocal style as the song builds. Combine this with the vaguely Spectorish production -- not to mention an artist name that sounds like a throwback to Larry Parnes' 50s Brit-boy stable -- and for me, this version is lifted just beyond others I know by Patty Lemann, Jan Burnnette and even Ray Peterson. I've always regarded this song as a real classic and often wonder how Spector would've approached it, had he done a later version. I can easily imagine a tumultuous Checkmates Ltd. reading, swathed in masses of echo. Or even a killer Tina Turner version, after the style of "Everyday I Have To Cry." BTW, I've just discovered there were two other versions of the song by Jack Bedient on Columbia in '67 and a later one by Jimmy Beaumont & the Skyliners, dating from '74 on Capitol. Any info or opinions on these, anyone? Ian -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Message: 24 Date: Tue, 24 Jun 2003 01:15:26 -0000 From: Ian Chapman Subject: The Songs of Baker Knight Baker Knight is a songwriter whose greatest successes include the million-selling hits for Rick Nelson, "Lonesome Town" and "There'll Never Be Anyone Else But You" and Elvis' "The Wonder Of You". But for the girl-group/Spectorsound aficionados amongst us, he is more readily known as the man responsible for such minor classics such as the Delicates' "Comin' Down With Love", the Blossoms' "Deep Into My Heart" and my personal favourite, Timi Yuro's utterly wonderful "Teardrops Till Dawn". A few weeks ago I discovered Baker's website which gave a long list of his compositions, but the above songs were missing. This prompted me to exchange a few e-mails with the man himself, in which I reminded him about those particular titles. This was Baker's reply: "I didn't think anyone remembered any of those songs. 'Teardrops Till Dawn' was one of my favorite records. I was at the session and it was electrifying. I'm glad to find that someone else liked it. I don't think the record was mastered very well as I remember, and that hurt it as far as getting airplay." "Timi was a feisty character, but not overly so. She had a lot of enthusiasm. Sorry to hear about her health problems. She had a powerful voice to say the least." "As far as the 'Teardrops 'Till Dawn' session, I believe Nick Venet was the producer. I recall Timi arguing with him over something about the arrangement. As I said, the session was electrifying and everyone felt it. Nitzsche was the arranger and it was one of those "wall of sound" things that night. That's about all I remember, except they all thought it was going to be a hit. There was something about the final mix and the mastering that made it sound sort of scratchy as I remember. It could have been done much better. And it SHOULD have been." "Please feel free to tell anyone about the site. An old friend of mine who designs web sites did it for me and maybe I'd better get him to add those song titles to the list." True to his word, Baker has since done exactly that. Take a look at his website at http://www.bakerknight.com which gives the lowdown on Baker's career, going back to his first rock & roll band, Baker Knight & the Knightmares and includes a great vintage pic. There's also a jukebox, where you can download clips of selected songs. And get this, Martin! - there's a separate page dedicated to the songs Baker wrote for Dean Martin in the late 60s, where he's interviewed by John Chintala of the Dean Martin Fan Center!! Notwithstanding Baker's comments about the final mix, Timi Yuro's "Teardrops Till Dawn" remains a much sought-after girl-group item. A rare combination of the Spector sound and the great "lost voice of soul", it's currently playing at musica. Ian -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

The lead was dead on. And those harmonies....better than rekkids even! The next night, some people (who shall remain nameless but one of them is a highly competent DJ) had a discussion about how unsingable that song is and how poorly IMP did as well. I was sorely disappointed as it's one of my favorite songs of all time and I thought IMP did a great job. I remain faithful to one of the best songs ever! I hope you and others picked up the IMP CD because it is FABULOUS. Not pastiche either. Seven really good originals and 5 wonderful covers. "Attack" is not on it but what's there is solid gold. Recorded, played and sung in a completely authentic manner, apparently using old equipment. Not to be missed! Go to their web site and order it if you want to get a flavor for this wonderful group and a sense for the TOP quality of the S'Pop party!!!! http://www.itsmypartyonline.com -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
