Does anyone in here know anything about The Point coming out 
on DVD?  I read somewhere that it's supposed to be released 
next week.

Sounds like another Buddah band--The Lemon Pipers. Those of us from the Cincinnati area remember them from 1967 as one of the first psychedelic/progressive/acid rock bands around, yet Buddah got a hold of them and turned them into bubble gum in 1968.

After my "Crimson & Clover" single disappeared, I tried to find that same short version on an LP, but kept running into that infernal LP version! Even on the radio, they only played that blasted long version! -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Artie, This Ronnie Charles LP is the most incredible pseudo-Phil Spector soundalike I have ever heard. This version of Layla is nothing short of amazing. I bought two copies of this LP one British one US and also a single which has a much longer version of the song than on the LP. One thing I could never understand though is why the pressing was so bad. Probably the worse vinyl pressing possible. This surely had something to do with the fact that the record never charted. Really too bad. Frank -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 6 Date: Fri, 15 Aug 2003 19:31:01 +0100 From: Martin Roberts Subject: Jack Nitzsche Update The winner of the Record Of The Week on the home page, http://www.spectropop.com/JackNitzsche/index.htm is the wonderful Timi Yuro with her rendition of "Could This Be Magic". Your patience is well rewarded! A shame there has to be a loser because Dodie Stevens with the Greenfield/Goffin/Keller-composed "Does Goodnight Mean Goodbye", despite not being as immediately obvious as some of her more girly releases is a fine record. Battle of the DBs next week - Dorsey Burnette with "One Of The Lonely" or Donnie Brooks' "Gone", both from Reprise. On The Radio http://www.spectropop.com/JackNitzsche/radio.htm currently playing: "KHJ9 Wild Side". Martin -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
