But I guess it was a situation where you had to be there to understand that. The only other times I've heard anything jump out of the radio like that, in comparison to everything else that was getting played, were with "Like a Rolling Stone" by Bob Dylan and "Born to Run" by Bruce Springsteen. To this day, those three are at the top of my list of favorite, best and most important rock singles. Surf's up!

Sounds like a bootleg copy you have there with "back to back" hits. There are several boots around; I have one, Philles 123 with Walking In The Rain (stereo) and on the b-side is Paradise; the typeset for the word paradise is PARADISE, the rest of the label has all the normal type. Noting this however, writer credit on Paradise is Spector, Poncia, Andrioli. Paradise was written by Harry Nilsson. Also, the original blue/black labels have a thick line under the PR logo; this has the blue/black label with a thin line. And speaking of b-sides, maybe someone on the list may find this interesting. The flip for Philles 112, Da Do Ron Ron,is called "Git It" and is a reworking inst. of a Darlene Love b-side - Take It >From Me. --------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------- Subject: Unusual Philles 115 Received: 03/28/99 8:54 pm From: Ian Chapman, iandXXXXXXXXlnet.co.uk To: Spectropop List, spectroXXXXXXXXties.com Joe.... I think what you have there could be one of a set of blue Philles boots that appeared in about '79, and originated from a place in North Cole Ave., Hollywood. They're distinguishable from authentic blue Philles labels by the line under the "PR Philles Records" logo, which is a thin line on the boots, but thick on the originals. The Ronettes boots had "Rare Masters" cuts on the flips, and Ike & Tina's "River Deep" was backed with the Ikettes "Down Down". Some of these boots also came on coloured wax.

Interestingly, the type face on the words "All Grown Up" is a serif typeface that is different from that normally used. >> J. I am sure what you have is a boot. There was a series of blue label bootlegs issued back in the late 70s or early 80s and they put a good cut on the b side instead of the usual junky Phil Spector instrumental. I didn't buy many because I had all the songs except The Ronettes version of Girls Can Tell. So I bought the boot that had it on the B side (Philles 116 "Be My Baby"(in stereo) b/w Girls Can Tell (mono). The reason the style of type on the title is different is because that's all they changed, the publishing credit, songwriter and everything else is the same as the original B side instrumental. If you wanted the songs you got a good deal, but I don't think they are worth much as collectors items.

Sorry. Kenny G doesn't cut it for me. His passe' Goldilocks Michael Bolton 'do is the epitome of the 80's and 90's "sensitive man" look, and his girly like alto sax sounds the same on every record. As a sax player, let's just say that Kenny is very good to his mother. Paul Desmond of the Brubeck Quartet was the alto sax artist featured on one of the jazz genre's most memorable songs, "Take 5" which will sound great 1,000 years from now. The Quartet were musician's musicians, part of the era of the Rat Pack, tough guys and martinis cooling in the fridge. The Marlboro Man was no doubt a bud of theirs! Yeah, Kenny G should have hung with them...they would have taught him a thing or three. Oh, shucks. I guess I'm an old fashioned girl...Bring back the days as my old uncle use to say, when men were men and women were two bucks!

I just found a copy and I think it's brilliant. I had read some things about it before, however, there were many unknowns. It definitely sounds like Phil produced it, but some people claim it's actually the Ronettes. Well, the Treasures sound like them, but not Bonnie. How she could possibly be Ronnie is beyond me, and her high pitched voice doesn't sound like any other Ronette, does it? She released a solo single, "Close Your Eyes," too. Who was she? Who were the Treasures? Why wasn't it a big hit? Who wrote it? Wow!

Instead of recommending albums and groups, why not recommend individual songs, get up a list, and have a vote. The top 60 entrees could then be put on a Spectropop soundtrack tape". I like the idea a lot! I'll volunteer to compile a list of the songs recommended by the listers. Then a vote will be taken to cull the top 60 vote-getting songs. I would be happy with simply possessing such a list. But maybe someone here would be willing to make the "Spectropop soundtrack tape" that Big L spoke of........ Okay folks, here's the first entries for the song list: Big L recommends for the list (I think): The Kinks, (from the LP "Village Green Preservation Society") Sitting By The Riverside Phenomenal Cat Do You Remember Walter Picture Book Big Sky Village Green Starstruck The Kinks (from the LP "Arthur.") Victoria Drivin' Australia Shangri-La Young & Innocent Days Dave Mirich recommends: The Yellow Balloon -- The Yellow Balloon The Millenium -- Karmic Dream Sequence Saggitarius -- My World Fell Down The Ballroom -- It's a Sad World Small Faces -- Itchycoo Park Love -- Alone Again Or Monkees -- Soundtrack of "Head" Flowerpot Men -- Let's Go To San Francisco C'mon Folks! What are you waiting for? Send in those song titles now!! --------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------- End
