Oh my God. Does this mean there will now be a series of Red Bird "collector" CD box sets like the Beach Boys Sea of Tunes?

Hi Claudia, You offer a very interesting analysis of post Pepper music, although you should have also included some of the harder edged sounds that graced the AM airwaves, like "Closer To Home" by Grand Funk, "The House Of The Rising Sun" by Frigid Pink, and "I Just Want To Celebrate" by Rare Earth, to name a few. Also, it may be that you're comparing apples and oranges here. Sergeant Pepper is an LP that many people consider to have caused a turning point in the way albums were viewed and made, but I don't really know that it had much effect on the shaping of Top 40 radio. Top 40 radio in 1966 wasn't very homogenized, and while it indeed did open up a bit during the next 4 to 6 years, I think that Sgt. Pepper probably had less to do with that than radio programmers increasing awareness of potential segmented markets. Finally, I can't agree with you that the bubblegum songs you mention are hideous. In fact, "I Think I Love You" and "Dizzy" were to my mind classics of the genre. Well, difference of opinion, handled in a tactful way, is what makes lists like this go round. Funny thing, to underscore Claudia's point. Recently I was listening to tapes that my friend Bruce Grossberg made for me, which featured most of the top 40 of 1970, in chronological order. When I got to "Whole Lotta Love" on the January/February tape, it occured to me that if anyone came by my car at that moment, the last thing they'd guess I was listening to was a compedium of top 40 hits from 1970. That illustrates that top 40 had indeed become quite varied by that year. -- Spectropop Rules!!!!!

Wow, 100 times better than the one done by Jay and the Americans. Just wondering if anyone else has a fave Spector cover they would like to share?
