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?

(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? -- Scott --------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------- Subject: COOKIES Sent: 12/01/98 12:05 pm Received: 12/02/98 7:31 am From: john rausch, XXXXXXXX.net To: Spectropop List, spectrXXXXXXXXities.com 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. Re: The Murmaids >Mentioning Sally's name seemed to bring about an awkward >silence so I thought best not to ask. 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. --------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------- End
