    Don't get me wrong. I'm not complaining that I found this music, 
    but I do think it's a shame that oldies music especially has now 
    been sent off to Musicland Siberia in Walmart. As a young fan, I 
    first discovered this music while looking around in a regular 
    music store. I would have never thought to go into a Wal-mart to 
    buy music, and I might have missed out on this great stuff. So 
    many younger people have interest in oldies these days, many times
    when I ask them why they only listen to the radio and don't buy 
    some cds I get the answer that "I don't know where to look."

    A while back this group was comparing the Ronettes' "You Baby" to 
    Linda Scott's version. Although I consider both of these gems, the
    Love Notes version, actually entitled "Baby, Baby, You" on Here 
    Come The Girls Vol. 9 is superior. I'd swear the lead singer took 
    lessons on how tho sing like Ronnie Spector. Her voices thunders 
    throught the song, and although the production is not as clean as 
    the two earlier versions, this one from '66 is very Spectoresque. 
    If you haven't bought this comp, which features the Jerry Ross 
    girl groups, it is a must.

    Will... Sears carries a very nice, inexpensive ($99.95 US) 
    turntable to play your vinyl on. And yes, stop at every roadside 
    sale for those elusive Spector gems, many of which can be bought 
    for mere pennies when found at these garage sales, tag sales, etc.
    You have a good chance of finding pearls this way!

    Kids -
    I recently picked up "Take It Easy With The Walker Brothers" on CD
    and was very pleased. Anyone know if their other 2 (?) LPs are any
