    thanks for sharing the loss of gene page...i had no idea how much 
    of a contribution he had in uncle phils wall of sound arrangements
    ...and the bridge in be my baby (especially in stereo)!!! is a 
    favorite of mine. i think it is very important to reflect here 
    that YES phil had the sound he wanted in his head but it took jack
    and gene to "make " it happen on the record, so all in all where 
    phil had the idea,...he needed these seasoned professionals to 
    relay his "sound" to wax. which many people "know " he did...hence
    the overdubbing create the wall of sound we hear today. i 
    have nothing but respect for those "little symphonies for the 
    kiddies" but gene and jack and even the other unsung heroes no one
    knows about have made monumental contributions to the spector sound
    including even the artists, performers ,and singers.thanks again 
    robert for "being there" and most importantly....sharing your past
    with us.

    Interesting reading what you have found in thrift stores.
    Over here (London) the charity shops have an uncannily similar 
    selection. My set of Herb Alperts' first 14 LPs has come from 
    charity shops, none costing more than 1 each. Andy Williams is 
    always there, and I was in a charity shop on Monday last and there
    was one of his Xmas records. You hardly ever see Burt Bacharach 
    because the Easy Listening trend of a couple of years ago made him
    a bit popular again. Lots of Tom Jones, Englebert Humperdink though.
    Seems that it's the same cast offs wherever you are....
    All the best, Kieron

    thing ...and so goes my all my spectropop friends...
    the old island album thing, if you had 5 lps(cds) to take on a 
    deserted island forever...could you make a choice? personally i 
    could not but i`m very interested in every one elses opinions.

    One of the most disappointing days is my life was when I was 
    informed that if you look closely enough, you can see the blanket 
    underneath the whip cream...
    Oh the damage that did to my 9th grade mind...

    A weird little factoid is that the model for that album cover was 
    pregnant at the time. Look closely at the picture and you can 
    juuuuuust barely tell.
    They shore did a good job covering her up with that whipped cream,
    though, huh.
    Between the hits on the radio and the Dating Game and Newlywed 
    Game theme songs, the TJB to me was like the ultimate background 
    music of the sixties. And once again, those Hal Blaine drums.

    i just gotta reply to this one...
    when i was so much younger i remember my moms record collection 
    and yes of course like everyone else in the 60s she bought the 
    herb albert lp on A+M and as the years go by i have completely 
    forgotten the whipped cream lp cover...OOH la la!!!
    now thanks to this list i think i will have to "re own " this gem
    ...not so much for the music ,but to have the lp cover art work,...
    wait a minute...yes,i can actually HEAR the song in my head now :-)

    Carol Kaye, in more than one of her posts on the web, stated 
    adamantly that Herb didn't play on his own records. Of course, 
    she's also said she played bass on all the Monkess hits, so who 
    really knows?
