I know John Rausch always has great Ronettes stuff on his page, but are there other sources I may have missed?

Spradlin, bilX re.net To: Spectropop List, spectroX ties.com I bought a very nice Technics SL-D1 direct drive turntable at a Local Thrift Store for 10(!) Dollars two years ago, and the only thing that needed replacing was the cartridge! Its not a Technics SL-1200 (which most radio or club/rap DJ's use) but its quiet, lets me cue up records for copying to CD and does the job for me! Billy G. > >Will...

I just got back from a brief trip to Memphis and Jackson, Mississippi. While there, I heard an oldies station (for Yazoo City, MS) that played some unusual tracks for oldies. Some of what I heard: Supremes-I'm Livin' In Shame Martha & The Vandellas-Come And Get These Memories Gene Pitney-Backstage Beatles-Octopus' Garden Of course, there were big hits too (My Girl, etc.) Unfortunately, I suspect this was an automated system because I never heard an announcement of what songs had been played.

Anyone know if their other 2 (?) LPs are any good?>> all i own is the *anthology* cd from one way, but it's convinced me i need all of the reissues as soon as i can afford them (or they come out domestically)...i bought it at the same time i bought the scott walker comp on razor & tie (having only heard " the sun ain't gonna..." [of course] and "make it easy..." and scott's "big louise" and figuring i should take all i can get), and now my scott library has jumped from 2 discs (counting the brothers comp) to 7...and i'm gonna try & get everything in scott's catalog...with and without his "siblings"... btw, if anyone knows where i can find *scott 1*, *scott 3*, and/or *climate of hunter* on cd, please alert me...all of the online places have 'em backordered if they carry them at all... thanx, jeff --------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------- End
