    Rob, is there any word on when she will appear, or has this already
    happened?  I'd love to see the interview.

    Can you give us some links? I know John Rausch always has great 
    Ronettes stuff on his page, but are there other sources I  may 
    have missed?

    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!

    <<A while back this group was comparing the Ronettes' "You Baby" to 
     Linda Scott's version. Although I consider both of these gems>>
    Anything by Linda Scott attains gem status with me.

    Hi All!
    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.

    <<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 
    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...
