    i have the westwood one disc, and it has (as far as i'm aware) otherwise 
    unavailable (on CD) true-stereo versions of "honky tonk woman," "get off 
    my cloud," and "mother's little helper," but no "19th."
    i think there might be stray stones tunes on some other westwood CDs.  i 
    don't think dick bartley uses them for his material, however.  i think he 
    uses a similar service, the name of which escapes me.  (they did a 
    true-stereo version of "california girls," syching up the stereo 
    instrumental and acapella vocals versions, which i've heard on his show a 
    few times.)

    I've been talking with a friend about mono mixes lately, and with all the 
    posts about the stereo 19th Nervous Breakdown, I thought it might be 
    interesting to mention rare mono mixes that particularly differ from 
    their stereo counterparts. I remember a great find was a UK pressing of 
    the first Traffic album in mono. A completely different animal. One album 
    that I have never heard in mono is Axis: Bold As Love. I imagine that is 
    pretty unique, too.

    Somebody (I don't remember who) made a reference to Ronnie's 
    autobiography a couple of issues ago.  That prompted me to pull out the 
    book and casually skim it, re-reading some favorite interesting sections. 
     Anyway, I noticed something in the discography that I'd never paid 
    attention to before -- the details of Ronnie's (last?) recording sessions 
    from 1989.  According to the book, she recorded four Marshall Crenshaw 
    songs for Alan Betrock.  I nearly flipped!  I love the Ronettes, and 
    Crenshaw is one of my absolute favorites!  And two of the songs -- 
    "Communication" and "For His Love" -- are otherwise unreleased!
    Do these recordings exist?  Does anybody have copies?  Does anybody know 
    ANYTHING about them?!
    Surf's up!

    Hi everyone,
    I remember there were a few posts regarding the UK group The Flower Pot 
    Men, who are a big favorite of mine.  Well there's been a recent 
    compilation on Sequel Records, by a group that fans of The Flower Pot Men 
    Will Love.  It's called "You've Got To Be Loved" by The Montanas, and 
    it's full of orchestrated pop from the late 60s, with wonderful melodies 
    and hooks.  The funny thing is that while the band had only one charted 
    record, the title song, it actually charted in the U.S. and not their 
    native U.K.
    The comp has 26 tracks, many of which were previously unreleased, 
    recently discovered songs, and you can get it from Disc Collector Records 
    in Colorado,
    among other places.
    Spectropop Rules!!!!!
    Take Care,
