Can't find it on any format at all...either way, could someone please post the tracklisting for the record? Thanks... Tobias Subject: Annette and Dodie Received: 02/06/99 1:10 am From: CLAUDIA CUNNINGHAM, TPXXXXXXXX.net To: Spectropop List, spectroXXXXXXXXties.com A question for you all: Can someone tell me who produced Annette Funicello's records when she morphed from adolescent Mousketeer into pop princess of the early 60s? You recall she had hits such as the "forgettable": Tall Paul, First Name Initial, Pineapple Princess...and the pretty ballad, O Dio Mio. I have a nagging suspicion that best pal Shelly Fabares may have had record producer hubby Lou Adler produce the records for her. Back then of course, all the television teen heart throbs were recording hit records, i.e. Connie Stevens, Edd Byrnes, Shelly Fabares, Paul Peterson, Johnny Crawford, and others. Annette was the most notable of the period. AND.. Singer Dodie Stevens had Pink Shoe Laces and One Boy on the charts...Who produced for her, and who were the musicians on Dodie's and Annette's tunes? Claudia Subject: David Gates on Del-Fi Received: 02/05/99 7:30 am From: IAC, iandXXXXXXXXlnet.co.uk To: Spectropop List, spectroXXXXXXXXties.com To Steve Stanley: Hi Steve, The Del-Fi girl-group compilation sounds great, and what a treat to get the Brenda Holloway track tagged on at the end. On the subject of Del-Fi, though, can I put in a good word for a David Gates track that was on that label, "You Had It Coming". I think it's one of the great "unknowns" of the early 60s, and would love to see it put out on some kind of compilation sometime. (Maybe it already has?) Best, Ian Chapman Subject: Diane - bio info request, and CD news Received: 02/05/99 7:30 am From: IAC, iandXXXXXXXXlnet.co.uk To: Spectropop List, spectroXXXXXXXXties.com Hi Diane, A friend of mine here in the UK, who isn't online, is currently working on a girl-group compilation for the Westside label. They are using tracks from various sources, including Colpix, Dimension, Jubilee, Roulette, and also some of the Bob Crewe labels. You're gonna be on there, of course, and he's chosen one of your later NewVoice tracks, the great "The Company You Keep". I told him you had joined us here at Spectropop, and he's asked me to if you would kindly supply a little info towards what he already has for the liner notes. Specifically.......can you confirm your real name? Some sources spell it as Kirschner, others as Kushner. Also, you're from Philly, right? But born there, or moved there at an early age? How did you meet Bob Crewe.....and can you recall anything about the track in question, or those later sides? And finally, Jean Thomas of the Rag Dolls had a solo single out on NewVoice around the same time as yours - were the Rag Dolls still backing you up by this time, and can you (or anyone) recall the names of the other two girls in that group? OK, that's it....sorry to bombard you with so much!! Any help you can give will be appreciated, and I know it will be of interest to everyone else on the list. And everybody....the CD will be entitled "Girls Will Be Girls", and I believe they've got some unreleased Roulette stuff on it by the Boyd Sisters, and Elena. And remember the Cinderellas studio tape of "Baby Baby" we discussed a few lists back? It's due out on Westside as part of another comp called "On Broadway - the Brill Building" - scheduled for Feb., so any day now...... ..

Two years before we talked, I spent many hours talking with Sue Thompson, and that article is finally due out in the next month or two. So here's hoping we can get yours into print before the next millennium! Thanks for asking! Doc End
