    Does anyone know whatever happened to the 1963 group known as the 
    Jaynettes who had but one hit - albeit a major one - SALLY GO 
    ROUND THE ROSES. It was such a haunting tune but I don't recall a 
    follow up.
    And, I have asked this before, but no one seems to remember this 
    duo. The singers were Bobby Byrd and Anna King and they had a 
    soulful, up-tempo, let-rip tune called BABY, BABY, BABY. The organ 
    work was riveting and it was a very happy sounding disc. It has 
    stuck in my mind for these many years. Perhaps Barbara Alston 
    would know since she was in the thick of this phenomenon known 
    as the Sixties and played such a stellar role. Anyone? Claudia

    Can you describe the cover with the bogus photo?  I may have it,

    I just got the Diana Ross & The Supremes 2-CD Anthology and was 
    surprised to find their recording of "Things Are Changing" on it. 
    (As I'm sure most of you know, this was a re-working of "Don't 
    Hurt My Little Sister" that was used as a public service 
    announcement.) According to the liner notes, this recording is not
    available anywhere else. Is that still true?
    I knew that the Blossoms had recorded it (as well as Jay & The 
    Americans, if I recall correctly), but I didn't know the Supremes 
    recorded it too. But, I was even more surprised to find that not 
    only is Phil Spector listed as the producer of the track, but he 
    is also listed as the sole author! Do Brian Wilson's lawyers know 
    about this?

    Thanks Ian, for such a great in-sight on the Cookies. After I read
    your post I had to listen to my Cookies cd.
    I remember reading somewhere that "Only to other people" was 
    reminence of Ronnie Spector`s vibrato approach, and also want to 
    add that although "Baby,Baby..." is OK at least in MHO , the 
    killer track is the b-side...."Please, don`t wake me", ....Those 
    3D drum riffs at the end are pure "Spectorland"! Same goes for the
    Secret`s " Hey...Big Boy". They say that imitation is the sincerest
    form of flattery!

    How in the world did you find out about this tape? This is a 
    goldmine! That Cinderellas' 45 ranks in my Top 3 favourite 45s 
    ever! Were there many takes still left in between? And by the way,
    was there another set of Cinderellas? Either Margaret switched 
    groups, or another GG took the Cinderellas name, because in the 
    Girl Group Fanzine "Cha Cha Charming," put out recently by Sheila 
    B, a picture of the "Cinderellas appears with three girls looking 
    nothing like the Cookies. Maybe one of them, but definitely not 
    all three! And what's this about an upcoming girl group comp? We 
    need a new one! Nothing out recently.

    >Mentioning Sally's name seemed to bring about an awkward

    I heard that the girls had a bit of a nasty split because the two 
    sisters and Sally had gone off to university and when the record 
    became a hit and they were called back to the studio to record 
    more Sally refused to go. Just rumour.
