   From: David Feldman 
Subject: Leiber-Stoller Story

I only read one blog on a daily basis.  It's Mark Evanier's "News 
from Me" at http://www.newsfromme.com  Mark tends to write primarily 
about television, comics, and politics, with forays into theater and 
other forms of popular culture.  I thought Spectropop readers would 
be interested in an entry from today.  This is reprinted with Mark's 
permission:

Rock and Roll Is Here To Stay
 
Watching the hoary programs that Game Show Network broadcasts in the 
wee small hours, I'm struck by all sorts of realizations. One is that 
adults in the fifties and early sixties actually thought rock-and-roll 
music was an annoying fad that would be gone before long. The 
panelists on What's My Line? (GSN is currently airing shows from 1958) 
are forever making little parental mutterings about how what "the kids 
today" listen to isn't really music. The other night, Bennett Cerf 
congratulated a priest who was moonlighting as a disc jockey for never 
playing rock-and-roll.

Last week, the panel and host gave short shrift to Jerry Leiber and 
Mike Stoller, who came on as contestants -- and not even celebrity 
contestants or anonymous contestants. They signed in under their own 
names even though by then, they'd had a number of hit records. (In 
case anyone reading this is unaware, Leiber and Stoller were for years 
the all-time champs when it came to writing Top Ten songs. The list 
includes "Charlie Brown," "Searchin'," "Ruby Baby," "I Keep 
Forgetting," "Love Potion No.9," "Neighborhood," "Poison Ivy," "Some 
Cats Know," "Framed," "Fools Fall In Love," "Love Me," "Riot In Cell 
Block No. 9," "I Who Have Nothing," "Spanish Harlem," "Stand By Me," 
"Kansas City," "Smokey Joe's Cafe," "That Is Rock n Roll," "Bossa Nova 
Baby," "Saved," "Trouble," "Pearl's A Singer," "Young Blood," "Don't," 
"I'm A Woman," "You Ain't Saying It," "Loving You," "Is That All There 
Is?," "Yakety Yak," "On Broadway," "Jailhouse Rock," "Little Egypt" 
and "Hound Dog.")

Elvis had recorded that last one two years earlier but the What's My 
Line? panel didn't recognize the songwriters' names and treated them 
like kids working at a burger stand. John Daly even said -- thinking 
he was being nice, I guess -- "Well, maybe someday you'll do 
something serious." Ouch.  Maybe Mr. Daly can be forgiven. No one then 
could have imagined that Leiber and Stoller -- and others of their 
profession -- were doing work that would endure if not forever then 
certainly through several generations. Recently when I saw a local 
production of Smokey Joe's Cafe -- a revue of Leiber-Stoller material 
that ran on Broadway for five years -- an entire auditorium of adults 
knew every word to many of the tunes. The fellow who runs the theater 
came out to introduce the show. To demonstrate the impact of Leiber 
and Stoller's work, he yelled out, "Yakety Yak" and the whole audience
instantly responded with, "Don't talk back!" Bet you couldn't do that 
with anything John Daly ever thought of.

Message: 4 Date: Thu, 26 Jun 2003 22:31:43 +0100 From: Martin Roberts Subject: Re: Linzer - Randell The utterly wonderful Simon White, keen to keep the Linzer-Randell thread going, chucked some of their 'northern soul' records into the ring. And I agree, 'northern', or whatever(!), they are great. So many good records by this pair. One of my favourites: the Steinways' "You've Been Leading Me On" (Oliver), first heard on one of the early Kent reissue LPs, was (at the time) without doubt the greatest record ever made! I still love the record to bits but on checking the LP (still haven't got the 45) I note that, despite Oliver being a Randell/Linzer label, only Denny is credited as arranger & producer with Bob Rand as writer. I know of only 5 releases on Oliver: 2 by the Steinways (I only know one); the Pandoras' "SweetHeart, Sweetheart"/"Call Me" (both sides terrific!); Sandy Williams' "California" (marvellous Beach Boys/Mamma & Papas-style)/"When's My Baby Comin' Home" (good), and the last one I know is best forgotten - Jimmy Harris "When We Were Friends"/"With You". (Sandy Williams had an earlier(?) release on the 4 Corners label, again Linzer- Randell and good). Another earlier 45 every home should own, which I guess predates his working with Sandy is a - so good they could well be on it - 04 Seasons pastiche by Denny Randell, "Hey! Chickie Baby" on Cameo.

The flip is called "Dirty Lady" and is rather > Donovan-esque - and rather odd. This is not based on documentable evidence, but recollection on my part, admittedly dim on occasion. As I remember Terry Knight was a Detroit based blue-eyed soulster prone to somewhat overblown interpretive nuance. For example his best know record in these parts--a cover of Ben E. King's "I (Who Have Nothing)" was almost Vanilla-Fudgian in its vocal gymnastics. Production wise I recall Spectropoppish values however. If you can take an aggressive vocal you may wanna look harder at him. JB -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Jack Bedient's version of "I Could Have Loved You So Well" is in musica and I'll leave it for a few days before swapping this for Jan Burnnette. Did anyone else notice at the tail end of the S'pop party a rather super Spector/Righteous Brothers soundalike that Mick played? I hot footed it to the decks where Mick proudly showed his new acquisition courtesy of Pete Antell and released on Pete's own Bounty label. Mick would have to remind me of the artist and song but while checking my 'Antells', besides "Warm Smoke" which should be known via "The DynoVoice Story" CD I have one of the two solo records Pete recorded for Bounty, a rockin' version of Bob Dylan's "The Times They Are A- Changing". Quite fun. Martin -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Message: 8 Date: Thu, 26 Jun 2003 15:25:57 -0700 (PDT) From: David Coyle Subject: Re: Johnny & The Hurricanes Yes, "It's A Mad Mad Mad Mad World" and "Shadows" are on the 2-CD Charly set I bought a while back. At 60 tracks of early '60s instrumentals, it can be a bit much to digest at one time. I used to prefer the sax-led numbers over the ones with the rinky-dink organ, but as the years wore on and I got more familiar with the group, I realized that the organ-based tunes are what made the Hurricanes who they were. Instrumental groups with a lead sax are a dime a dozen. Rocked up folk numbers like "Red River Rock" and "Beatnik Fly" are a lot of fun. I also have 2 separate CDs of Johnny & The Hurricanes live at the Star-Club Hamburg -- one in '62 when they were being supported by the Beatles on their last German club tour, and again in '64 when they had fully succumbed to Beatlemania and started doing vocal numbers and getting Beatle cuts. Pretty good stuff. David -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 9 Date: Thu, 26 Jun 2003 15:42:59 -0700 (PDT) From: David Coyle Subject: Re: Bob Lind / Cheryl's Going Home "Cheryl's Going Home" was also covered by the Hondells, the hotrodder group that originally did "Little Cobra". I know it was on a single, but I don't remember whether it was the a or b-side. David P.S. Bob Lind sounds so much like Glen Campbell on "Elusive Butterfly", and I'd bet one major reason Lind didn't get further than he did is that Glen came along and did Glen Campbell much better than he could. Can you imagine the "Bob Lind Goodtime Hour"? -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 10 Date: Thu, 26 Jun 2003 22:48:19 -0000 From: Art Longmire Subject: LP by Chad - No, not that one! Well, I did a little research on the "Chad" LP on Bell I mentioned earlier-not only is there a bit more on it now on the internet than when I last checked, but it is actually Chad Mitchell, not Chad Stuart of Chad & Jeremy who recorded it. Just shows to go you, those one-name monikers can really be confusing. What threw me off is Chad Stuart always went by simply "Chad" in his pop music billing and so I assumed it was him. -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 11 Date: Thu, 26 Jun 2003 16:05:22 -0700 (PDT) From: David Coyle Subject: Re: Terry Knight & The Pack Before Terry Knight formed the Pack in 1965(?) he was a deejay in Detroit. Terry Knight and the Pack did two LPs for Cameo, then Knight split from the group, became their producer and the Pack (at least three-fifths of them) became Grand Funk Railroad. Somewhere in the transition period, Knight and the Pack released 45s independently of each other, Knight doing the aforementioned version of "Come Home Baby" and the band releasing "Wide Trackin'" as the Fabulous Pack (no doubt tying in the single with Pontiac). That Fabulous Pack single was definitely a sonic precursor to Grand Funk, but there's little similarity between the original Pack with Knight and the future Funksters. Sure there were one or two good rockers, especially on their eponymous debut LP, but having been a deejay, Knight's vocals were too smooth for garage rock, the Pack were too rockin' for Knight's crooner sensibilities. Highlights of the TK&P era are tracks such as their version of "Mister You're A Better Man Than I," "Love Love Love Love Love" (later covered by the Music Explosion), and "Numbers." But the true sound of the Pack with Terry Knight is evident in what was their bigger hit, a string-laden version of Ben E. King's "I Who Have Nothing," complete with a dramatic spoken intro much like the Tom Jones version from a couple years hence. Somewhere in between you get the folk-rock of the blatantly Dylanesque "Dimestore Debutante" and the Grassroots-like "This Precious Time." Not to mention an attempt at R&B with "One Monkey Don't Stop No Show," the psych cash-in of "Love Goddess Of The Sunset Strip," and the loner anthem "The Shut-In." Somewhere in this schizophrenic mix, the Pack managed to make the charts, particularly local radio charts in Ohio and Michigan. Along the way, they got to my neck of the woods, playing the Sugar Shack here in Chillicothe with the Wildlife, a Columbia act from Mansfield. But Knight finally realized he wasn't exactly a rock and roll singer and once again went behind the scenes, and thus begat Grand Funk Railroad. A few years later, he parted ways with them, and became another footnote in rock history. People will want a deluxe CD reissue of Terry Knight and the Pack's two albums just like they want anything reissued from the Cameo-Parkway ouevre. But musically speaking, there are only a handful of reasons to push for it. I'll take "Bad Time" or "Inside Looking Out" over "What's On Your Mind" and "A Change On The Way" any day.

That got my curiosity up, though I suspect it was a mistake? There *was* a three-disc boxed set of their solo material (I *think* it was just solo material...I could be mistaken, as I haven't checked it in some time) released on, IIRC, Rhino in the 80s. Vinyl only, though. On CD, as far as I can tell only Moving Targets, Illegal Immoral and Fattening, and Rock Steady with Flo and Eddie have been released, with the "Best Of" on Rhino being the only representation of the other albums. I'm surprised the Japanese never got around to it.. -D -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Karen Verros's version of 'you just gotta know my mind' can be found on one of the 'Girls in the Garage' bootlegs, on both vinyl and CD. It's a great version of a great track though very similair to Dana Gillespie's, but minus harpsicord and more 'garagey'. Thinking about unreleased Donovan tracks: anyone know if 'Be not too hard' from the film 'Poor Cow' was ever released and what about tracks recorded by the McKinleys and others? -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Artie - this site is wonderful. There is a lot to explore! Someone on another message board brought you up in connection with your song "One by One" as performed by the Mockingbirds. I saw that you mentioned this last year on Spectropop. Have you ever talked to Graham about how they got to know the song? Is it likely they heard the album or a demo?

Although small by the present standards, the party was a great success. Long-standing friendships were strengthened and new friends made. Jamie LePage was one of the most enthusiastic supporters of the party. He couldn't be there but he rightly considered it an extension of the online community he had created and took great delight in its success. Imagine how proud he would be now to see that, not only has the group continued to grow and prosper under the stewardship of the present Admin Team, but that the uniting and friendships of its members has physically crossed several continents. A wonderful tribute to Jamie, the current Admin Team and all of us. Martin -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Martin, does your good taste know no bounds? It is a truly marvellous record and was reissued here as a single on Kent Records. I think it was a solo Denny Randell production. Lead singer was Frankie Gearing of the Laddins/Glories/Quiet Elegance fame. And unless my memory has gone haywire (again) I have a feeling The Steinways is the group that visited the UK as "The Platters" in the 60s. -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
