    Jeffrey Thames, KingoGr m wondered about a CD he has of 
    ?'s 96 Tears LP. It is a 'non-official' release, probably from 
    Greece or Italy, but certainly not out of the UK despite what it 
    may say on it.
    
    The lack of Cameo Parkway reissues is inexcusable, although some 
    occasionally come through now and then, like on the recent Here 
    Come The Girls Vol 8 CD with some Jerry Ross girl group 
    productions which were on Cameo Parkway.
    
    What I don't understand is - what is the point of owning the label
    if you do nothing with it?

    Hey! Did Phil the-man-himself actually show up for the trial? How 
    does the rug look these days? :-)
    
    I'd be real curious what he has to say on the stand, or if he even
    shows up at all.
    
    Sidenote:  Until a few years ago, I used to live one block from 
    Fairfax High, Phil's old alma mater. I believe he grew up in one 
    of the little bungalow-style houses in that neighborhood, and 
    played pool in a poolhall that was directly behind my house there.
    But that's about as close as I ever got to meeting The Man.

    Jeff, I think 96 Tears is out on Collectables, so maybe it doesn't
    fall under the Cameo-Parkway stuff anymore. I received a letter 
    from a staff member at Abkco several (maybe 4 or 5) years ago 
    claiming reissue plans were being made for the CP stuff. Naturally, 
    no release dates were ever scheduled. Obviously, Allen Klein 
    doesn't need money or he would issue more stuff by herman's 
    Hermits (which he controls in the US), and sublicense the Cameo 
    Parkway stuff to every oldies label on the planet earth. At least 
    I would. The European releases of Chubby Checker material I 
    understand are boots and taken off disks.
    
    Sometimes I wish collectors or fans could get together, pool their
    resources and prepare a limited numeber of CD's for the group on 
    material that is out of release. You know private use not resale. 
    There is still quite a bit of stuff not on the market, such as A&M
    !! There has never been a US release of Baja Marima Band or 
    Claudine Longet on A&M and there are probably a couple of others. 
    England Dan And John Ford Coley made two LPs for A&M (they're 
    first) surely they deserve reissue at least temporarily.

    If you mean the German 1985 (European) release of HOT ROCKS 1 (on 
    London 820 141-2), and HOT ROCKS 2 (on London 820 142-2), that 
    song isn't on either disc.
    
    The stereo songs that are there include:
    
    "Time Is On My Side"
    "Heart of Stone"
    "Play with Fire"
    "Satisfaction"
    "Get Off My Cloud"
    "Mother's Little Helper"
    "Paint It, Black"
    "Under My Thumb"
    "Ruby Tuesday"
    "Let's Spend the Night Together"
    
    "Jumpin' Jack Flash"
    "Street Fighting Man"
    "Sympathy for the Devil"
    "Honky Tonk Woman"
    "Gimme Shelter"
    "Midnight Rambler"
    "You Can't Always Get What You Want"
    "Brown Sugar"
    "Wild Horses"
    
    The two mono tracks included are "As Tears Go By" and "19th 
    Nervous Breakdown."  But no "It's All Over Now."  Some of the 
    stereo tracks on HOT ROCKS 1 are somewhat hard to find, 
    particularly on CD, because of Abkco (as you said in your message).
    
    If you have a number for the British MORE HOT ROCKS, I'd like to 
    know what it is, in the possible case it's a different CD than 
    this release. I've never seen a British or Euro HOT ROCKS other 
    than these two.

    No, I mean *More* Hot Rocks (as I said in my message). It's like 
    the Hot Rocks volumes you reference above, where the two CD's were
    sold separately, unlike the current UK/German availability with 
    both CD's as one in a clamshell case.
    
    <<If you have a number for the British MORE HOT ROCKS, I'd like to

    Unfortunately, I'm at work as I write this, so I don't have the 
    discs in front of me to give you a number. I can get that later. 
    Also, something to keep in mind is that these discs were sold as 
    domestic releases in the UK at that time, even though the discs 
    were made in Germany (just as many other releases were, due to 
    limited manufacturing capabilities in the UK). They weren't 
    considered "imports" per se. Thus my perhaps confusing reference 
    to the "UK version". That was just to differentiate it from the 
    lousy US one.
    
    There ya go...
    
    Mark (the correct spelling... ;-)  )

    Funny you should mention this. Tonight I went to Tower Records in 
    L.A. for Brian Wilson's record signing. In the Tower Records 
    parking lot, who should I see but Mr. Twist himself -- Hank 
    Ballard. I shouted out: "Hank Ballard!" and he turned around, 
    clearly surprised that someone recognized him. We shook hands and 
    he told me that he was there to meet one of his musical heroes, 
    Brian Wilson. I never would have guessed that Hank Ballard would 
    be such a big Brian Wilson fan that he would go to Tower Records 
    just to meet him, but he is. (He is also a very nice guy.)
