My son had the TV on. Something caught my ear, and I looked up... "Can't get enough of you, baby..." It was a promo for the new Drew Barrymore movie. But that song... THAT'S a trivia question even for someone who grew up on punk bands and mid 60s Cleveland radio! It is, of course, "Can't Get Enough Of You, Baby" by ? and the Mysterians, which was the followup to "I Need Somebody." It received very little airplay anywhere. The idea of using such an obscure song in a movie in 1998 makes no sense to me at all. Why would they do such a thing? BTW, it wasn't the original version, either." Several other people have probably already answered this, but here goes. I know that Smashmouth (the group who recently had a hit with a song called "Walkin' On The Sun") recorded a cover of "Can't Get Enough of You Baby" recently, so I assume that this is the version that you heard. -- Scott --------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------- Subject: Touch the Wall of Sound, Can't Get Enough Sent: 11/25/98 8:24 am Received: 11/26/98 12:47 am From: Bates, Robert (Cahners -NYC), robXXXXXXXXers.com Re: Touch the Wall of Sound Is this a new compilation? Anyone have more info on this? Re: Can't Get Enough of You, Baby I always loved this song, ever since I saw ? perform it live last year. (? And the Mysterians are really great live, by the way.)

(Richard nader's Volume VIII was the one I attended. Unless there was a last-minute change? I don't remember. (I was a 16-year-old squirt.) On the bill were the Crystals, Fats Domino, Bo Diddley, Chubby Checker, the Five Satins, the Capris, the Belmonts, and Jerry Butler. Can you imagine? What a night. Re Little Eva: Saw her once on TV in the 80s doing a show; she looked angry, and hardly smiled at all! I think it was her first appearance since the 60s, actually, if I'm not mistaken. Hi Barbara: Yes, I will be happy to xerox / fax you my stuff. You know, I have dozens of ads that I clipped from newspapers back in the 70s, and kept in scrapbooks. I'll forward you my Crystals stuff. You might even recall performing at some of those clubs... The picture with the telephone I was talking about was taken that night by someone, and printed in a record collector's magazine. Mary has an afro, and Dee Dee has a sort of flip; you have a kind of shag, and La La is a mass of curls. I also saved a review of the show from Rolling Stone magazine, I think it was. I'll send it too. If faxes are not clear, then I'll send them by mail, just let me know where. And you're not old! It's all relative... and is it true that La La was only 14 when she joined the group in 1962? And is that Pat singing lead on "Oh Yeah, Maybe Baby?" Do you recall who did lead on "Frankenstein Twist?" Is that La La? I love that song... I think I've said on here that we used to do that dance at parties. To everyone: since being in touch with Barbara Alston, I've been giving the early-Crystals songs lots of new listens lately. That's some really great music! Barbara's voice was perfect for those numbers! --------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------- Subject: Spector Spin Sent: 11/25/98 9:24 am Received: 11/26/98 12:47 am From: R Teyes, RTXXXXXXXXcom Spin Magazine This month's issue has a 1/2 page article on Phil along with other producers and is good reading.

Leclerc,XXXXXXXXotron.ca Hi, I have heard a version of Todd Rundgren "It wouldn't have made any Difference" on my oldies station, and have been wondering who is playing it, it is done at a faster speed, but it is obviously not Todd. The sound is early to mid 70's. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Marie>> Hi Marie, Your e-mail address leads me to believe you're from Canada, so I'm going to guess that the version you heard was by Tom Middleton, a Canadian who had a top 20 Canadian hit with the song in the fall of 1973, on Columbia Records. A pretty good version, I must say! -- Spectropop Rules!!!!!

OK so you must have heard Tom Middleton's version of "Difference". The song is a good example of some of the lesser known songs that stations play to keep up with the Canadian content regulations. This version came out in 1973 and it made the top 40 here in Canada. Personally I like Todd's version better. Now has anyone on the list heard The Stytch In Time's version of "Got To Get You Into My Life" or The Big Town Boy's take on "It Was I" Javed --------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------- Subject: Terri Nelson Group Sent: 11/25/98 10:08 am Received: 11/26/98 12:47 am From: Bob Hanes, BobHXXXXXXXXv.net To: Barbara Alston, BARBXXXXXXXXcom Spectropop List, spectrXXXXXXXXities.com Is that you? Just found a copy of the LP and noticed that one of the members of the group is named Barbara Alston. So I thought I'd check and see if that's really you. I haven't had a chance to listen and I don't remember the LP from my history, so maybe Friday I'll get the chance to audition the record. I used to buy groups during the 70s that didn't have major hits but looked cool and seemed classy. I don't know how this one slipped by me. --------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------- Subject: The Flirtations Sent: 11/25/98 9:06 am Received: 11/26/98 12:47 am From: WILLIAM STOS, wXXXXXXXXet.com Does anybody have info on this late 60s group?
