I can send you a cut of it on tape from tape played at exactly 45rpm. And the Girlfriends also recorded "I Want to Be Happy," a raucous version of that song. I have it on tape, too. Best, Jimmy --------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------- Subject: Guilty by Association Sent: 08/01/98 9:30 pm Received: 08/01/98 9:30 pm From: Jamie LePage, le_page_XXXX@XXXties.com This was posted somewhere else, but since it is solely release info, I am taking the liberty of reposting it to the list. Sorry to those who have seen this already elsewhere. ASSOCIATION-AND THEN...ALONG COMES MARY + 4 Japanese reissue of the pop vocal group's debut smash, a top five album when first released in 1967 for Warner Brothers. Features all 12 of the original tracks, including the #1 "Cherish" & the top 10 "Along Comes Mary", plus four bonus tracks: alternate versions of both of those hits and the B-sides "One Too Many" & "Forty Times". (WB? I thought the album was first released on Valiant...) ASSOCIATION-BIRTHDAY + 5 Japanese reissue of the pop vocal group's top 30 1968 album for Warner Brothers, featuring the top 30 hit "Everything That Touches You" and five bonus tracks: the B-sides "Six Man Band" & "Under Branches", and alternate versions of the album tracks "Everything That Touches You", "Time For Livin'" & "Hear In Here". 16 tracks total.

With these and the forthcoming revamp of the BB catalog (can't wait for Enless Harmony), I need to start moonlighting to save enough $$ for everything! -- le_page_XXXX@XXXties.com RodeoDrive/5030 --------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------- Subject: Re: Oldies Radio Is Alive In The Boonies Sent: 08/01/98 9:38 pm Received: 08/01/98 9:39 pm From: Jamie LePage, le_page_XXXX@XXXties.com David Marsteller wrote: >I just got back from a brief trip to Memphis and Jackson, >Mississippi.

Coincidentally, I too just got back from a trip to the South. I spent a few days in Nashville (hot, hot, hot). While eating vegetarian nachos in a quasi-organic cafe the BGM was playing some incredible stuff, of course mixed in with the Johnny Angels and It's My Parties. Still, I was really surprised by this. And, like you Dave, I suspected it was a cable radio thing because there were no commercials or DJs. Imagine that... Three days in Nashville and never once heard a country record! -- le_page_XXXX@XXXties.com RodeoDrive/5030 --------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------- Subject: Re: Ronettes + "You Baby" Sent: 07/31/98 3:24 am Received: 07/31/98 7:13 am From: WILLIAM STOS, wsXXXX@XXXt.com Thanks to both John and Rob for their help. I'm going to plow through the news stories now. >Will, you've piqued my interest. I have most of the HCTG series, >but not #9 yet. Must get. I think of all the HCTG sets I have, which is only a few, I like this the best! The Cameo-Parkway singles are worth the price alone, but other great songs by the likes of the Sapphires, the Yum Yums (Honey and the Bees) and Devotion make it one of the best restricted (only a few groups on related labels or producers) comp I've seen yet. "You Baby" is one of my favourite Ronettes tracks. --------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------- Subject: The Ronettes... etc. Sent: 07/31/98 2:59 am Received: 07/31/98 7:13 am From: Jimmy, JimmyXXXX@XXXom That's how I found the Cookies' "I Want A Boy for My Birthday," in a laundry basket in a dusty old thrift shop in Connecticut... and ask your RELATIVES who are now in their 40s - 50s, if you can look through their collections. If Cousin Fannie was 15 years of age in 1963, and buying records, she's 50 now... if Cousin Frankie was 13 and buying records in 1963, then he's 48 now... give them a call! I once had a first cousin (once removed) bring me HER records in 1970, and there were Philles originals in there that she let me keep... it was the first time I'd heard "Then He Kissed Me" and "He's Sure the Boy I Love" and I was blown away... to this day, those Spector cuts never sounded better than on those old 45 rpm records! --------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------- End
