(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.) -----------[ archived by Spectropop ]----------- Subject: MONO Sent: 12/5/97 2:40 AM Received: 12/5/97 2:48 AM From: Jamie LePage, le_page_XXX@XXXXXXies.com To: Spectropop List, spectroXXX@XXXXXXies.com 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. -----------[ archived by Spectropop ]----------- Subject: Re: The Last Ronnie Spector Recordings? Sent: 12/4/97 9:18 PM Received: 12/5/97 2:08 AM From: Brad Elliott, surfXXX@XXXXXXline.net To: Spectropop Mailing List, spectroXXX@XXXXXXies.com 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!

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, David -----------[ archived by Spectropop ]----------- END
