    There are two cd's of Connie's that I'd like to axe about:  a 
    one-disc best of, with something like 20 or more hits on it; also,
    a two-disc set, from Reader's Digest (?).
    
    Which of these is better to get? Or is neither of these the one to
    have?

    Hey, Kieron...Jimmy's assessment of the Ellie Greenwich song is 
    right on. However, the song was produced by Bob Crewe, not Bob 
    Gaudio (UA 50151).
    
    For William Stos re: GG songs...Here's my two-cents worth:
    
    1) Dusty - Rag Dolls
    2) Give Him a Great Big Kiss - Shangri-Las
    3) He's Got the Power - Exciters
    4) Nobody Knows What's Goin' On - Chiffons
    5) Goodnight Baby - Butterflys
    6) My One and Only, Jimmy Boy - Girlfriends
    7) etc...(any Ronettes/Crystals)

    Thanks all for your suggestions for my show. I'll try to squeeze 
    as many of your suggestions in as possible! Also, seeing Claudia's
    post, why don't you all check out my site which is just getting off
    the ground. Sigh, John Rausch has been great about helping with 
    photos, but it's pretty bare at the moment. Once school gets going
    I'll get back to it. Please notify me of any corrections (although 
    I know I have to really go through for spelling!)

    Boy oh boy, NOW you've done it. Only ten? Not likely. But on short
    notice, here's the best I can do in trying to narrow it down. First
    list is of songs more commonly heard on the radio, followed by a 
    list of favorite gg songs that are more off the beaten path. By 
    the way, these are NOT in any special order.
    
    Top 10 (hah!) more commonly heard  GG songs:
    1.(The Best Part Of) Breakin' Up--The Ronettes
    2.Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)--Darlene Love
    3.Baby I Love You--The Ronettes
    4.Dancing In The Street--Martha Reeves & The Vandellas
    5.Love Child--Diana Ross & The Supremes
    6.One Fine Day--The Chiffons
    7.Sweet Talking Guy--The Chiffons
    8.The Shoop Shoop Song (It's In His Kiss)--Betty Everett
    9.Walk On By--Dionne Warwick
    10.Will You Love Me Tomorrow--The Shirelles
    11.You, Baby--The Ronettes
    12.Downtown--Petula Clark
    
    Top 10 (hah!) less often heard or downright obscure GG songs:
    1.Wonderful Summer--Robin Ward
    2.Can't Stop Loving The Boy--The Carolines
    3.Dream Lover--The Paris Sisters
    4.Let Me Get Close To You--Skeeter Davis or Beverly Warren
    5.Give Him A Great Big Kiss--The Shangri-Las
    6.Lonely Without You--Julie Grant
    7.Don't Sleep In The Subway--Petula Clark
    8.I'm Into Something Good--Earl-Jean
    9.I Couldn't Live Without Your Love--Petula Clark
    10.Baby That's Me--The Cake
    11.The One You Can't Have--The Honeys
    12.What Am I Gonna Do With You--Lesley Gore
    
    Doublecheck, these are NOT in any special order.

    Subject:     Where did they come from?

    This may be a subject of limited interest, but I will pose this 
    question to my learned colleagues anyway....In the past few years,
    many previously unheard-of Philles Records releases have surfaced..
    .The Phil Spector Spectacular LP, the "Thanks For Giving Me the 
    Right Time" single, and, most recently, a stock copy of "Stumble 
    and Fall" and legitimate Philles colored-vinyl platters (not the 
    popular bootlegs). Why, after all these years, has this stuff all 
    of a sudden surfaced? Where did it come from?
    
    Before purchasing the "Thanks..." single, I discussed this with a 
    well-known collector/dealer who said it was the result of a 
    Spector "insider" who had access to these items and had decided to
    sell them to collectors...I assumed it was probably Phil's former 
    secretary, Joan Berg. However, everything I've seen of these "new"
    issues shows that they were pressed on the west coast (thick line 
    under the logo), and Joan quit Spector and stayed in NYC after 
    Phil moved to CA, so it might not be her...How about Phil's promo 
    man, Danny Davis???? Or one of the Wrecking Crew???
    
    Does anyone have an answer (or theory) as to how these
    previously-unreleased Philles issues came to be released to the 
    public? It's hard to believe that these records just popped up on 
    their own after 25-30 years. Another Spector mystery....
