So, I came to the conclusion that this label may be too "marginal", so to speak. Can anyone shed some light or give me some hints as to where can these cds be found? And if they are *that* marginal, then can anyone trade a cdr to me? Thanks! Also, does anyone know anything about two compilation cds called "UK Teenage Jamboree"? best, francesc --------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------- Subject: Association CDs out? Sent: 10/26/98 11:22 am Received: 10/26/98 11:36 pm From: David B Ponak, dpXXXXXXXXhlink.net To: spectrXXXXXXXX.geocities.com Hi Folks, I'm a little confused about the Japanese CD reissues of the first 4 Association CD's. They were supposed to be released on 9/23, but I haven't found any evidence that they came out. My friend in the international dept. at Warner checked with her Warner Japan contact and came up empty. Does anybody know the story? I picked up the Red Bird/Blue Cat comp on Taragon. The sound quality is so good on most the tracks it's scary. Especially the Dixie Cups tracks, Iko Iko and Chapel Of Love sound like you're in the studio. The Shangrilas' tracks still sound pretty dirty, but I have a feeling Shadow Morton overdrove the record levels on purpose trying to get that Spector effect. Fans of 60's british pop and softrock may want to check out the new Boo Radleys album, "King Size." Great melodies, lush string orchestrations, and clever arrangements. Track 4 sounds like it could be off the Millenium album.

A sportscaster interviewed Burt Bacharach during a rehearsal for his concert with Elvis Costello in Seattle, and the interviewer, Eric J., asked BB about BW. The response was moving and surprising. Did you know that my two favorite composers, BW & BB, once lived next door to one another? Look for the thread (which is currently on top of the listings) called "Me and Burt, Hangin' Out...Talking Music!" http://studentweb.tulane.edu/~mark/bacharach.html Dave --------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------- End
