    To all Spector Freaks who are looking for the great Fitzpatrick/
    Fogerty book...Altho it was printed in 1991 and is no longer BEING
    printed, there are new copies out there. I just got a copy from - Took 5 weeks, but they found a copy, still sealed.
    Keep looking if you need it!!!
    As for Jack Fitzpatrick, does anyone know an address (snail or 
    email) where I can reach him? We had many a Spector conversation 
    via landline back in the 1970's, but I haven't talked to him since
    I moved to Ohio from Georgia. Thanks much...Phil Lives!!

    Dave (or anyone),
    I've never been able to get my hands on the gospel record that Dee
    Dee Sharpe made after her pop career. Has anyone heard it or know 
    how to obtain it?

    I have two mysteries (or perhaps they were dreams) that maybe 
    someone can clear up.
    1. The firs time I heard the Box Tops "The Letter," I thought for 
    sure that it was a remake, that I had heard it before. Does anyone
    know if that song was done previously by someone else (forget the 
    Arbors, that was later), if perhaps an earlier version by the Box 
    Tops existed, or maybe if it was released, then sat idle for a 
    while before becoming big?
    2. With regard to "Chapel of Love," might there be two mixes of 
    this by the Dixie Cups? I know about the version by the Crystals 
    and the Ronettes. What I am talking about  is a version by the DC 
    that has a different harmony mix at the beginning.
    Or did I dream these two things?

    But it is still illegal to import them or sell them in the United

    Hi Scott,
    I too am very interested in Usher's collective works. I can't 
    comment on PolyGram's representation of those Usher works you 
    listed, but I know many of them are included in Annette's albums 
    and soundtrack albums to Muscle Beach Party and Beach Party, 
    which were issued through Buena Vista. As you will know, often 
    film companies end up with publishing rights when they commission 
    writers to compose for film, so it very well may be that these are
    controlled by virtue of such agreements, although it would seem 
    to me that Disney would have control of these based on that theory.
    Anyway, there's a hyperlink on Geocities' Spectropop page to Ron 
    Weekes' Gary Usher Surf & Hot Rod discography, which I (barely) 
    helped Ron put together about a year ago. You'll find some 
    answers there, and I hope others will offer further info.
    btw, in your list, there are several titles co-written by Brian 
    WIlson and (apparently) Glen Campbell. PolyGram control mainly 
    Usher's shares, I am guessing. Right?
    The Hondells rule!!!!!

    I've been reading the info. on the court case with interest. 
    Thanks Robbie. Keep it coming.
    What I wonder is, why has it taken until now for this to go to 
    court, surely the case could have been made earlier???
