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.<< Axis is very different, RU EXP is very different. The Who Sell Out not only contains different mixes, but a few different takes! Surrealistic Pillow and the 1st Buffalo Springfield LPs are completely wonderful in mono (and truly awful in stereo). In the early days of stereo, it was not uncommon to have jazz groups cut songs twice, once for stereo issues, once for mono. A great example of this is Duke Ellington's Indigos (in case any of you care...). Then there's Sgt. Pepper....

Has anyone heard it and is it worth buying. Any comments would be appreciated.<< I don't know that one, but there's a version of Rockin' Around the Xmas Tree w/ Darlene that's on "A Very Special Xmas Vol. 2". Also, I have an amazing tape of Darlene, w/ Jimmy Vivino's big band (who played at my wedding!), singing/playing stuff from the Spector Xmas LP, if anyone's interested.

Sequel Records rules, as far as I'm concerned.>> Hi Jack, They'll be bigger heroes after I tell you that they have yet two other great reissues: a 2 CD set of The Ivy League and a 2CD set of Pinkerton's Assorted Colours and the group they became, The Flying Machine (yes, *that* one, of "Smile A Little Smile" fame). For those of you who don't know these groups, The Ivy League were headed by the excellent songwriting team of Carter/Lewis, and they wrote and performed the original version of "My World Fell Down". The Ivy League sound falls somewhere between the Beach Boys and The Four Seasons, with a decidedly British slant. Pinkerton's Assorted Colours is very Hollies-esque, which is emphasized by their cover of "Hard Hard Year" (previously unreleased). The Flying Machine is more in that Tony MacAuley vein, no surprise given he co-wrote a lot of their songs. These comps are definitely worth the price of admission! -- Spectropop Rules!!!!!

I believe Castle is something like a British version of K-Tel-meets-Rhino reissue operation. Two past Sequel releases have become great favorites: "The Joe Meek Story - The Pye Years" and "304 Holloway Road - Joe Meek - The Pye Years Volume Two." Sequel also released a few other Meek titles, but these two are the best. From Glenda Collins to the Riot Squad, these volumes give a nice overview of Meek's later productions.

Does anybody have copies? Does >anybody know ANYTHING about them?! Hey Brad, Darian here, I'm sure we've crossed paths somewhere in our respective 6 degrees of seperation (Domenic, Bob, David, etc). In case I never told you, I've always been a fan of your output (for a couple a years there the "Surf's Up" book may as well've been put out by Webster or Gideon for me). At any rate, being the huge Ronettes fan as well, you could imagine my near-death (good) experience when I found out that my girlfriend Lisa (who's Ronnie-esque singing voice was what attracted me to her in the first place) was a member of a girl-group in New York called the Pussywillows who just happened to sing back-up vocals on those Ronnie Spector demos. Well, after a year of my constant nagging, she finally gave Alan Betrock a call and yes. . .he FINALLY sent us a copy. You may e-mail me for details. Thanks, Darian (monsaXXX@XXXXXXink.net) -----------[ archived by Spectropop ]----------- Subject: Zombies' stuff Sent: 12/7/97 3:13 AM Received: 12/6/97 3:51 AM From: David R. Modny, dmoXXX@XXXXXXcom.com To: Spectropop List, spectroXXX@XXXXXXies.com Hi all, First up, knowing of all the 'Zombies' fans on the list - Run, don't walk to get the new box set - it's FANTASTIC!!!. Second, I was wondering if anyone has ( or has heard ) the late 70's re-recordings ( not 'New World'!! ), that were done for the Canadian 'Cruisin'' series. They featured the original line-up ( w/ Tim Renwick on guitar ). These are the elusive missing links to my Zombies collection, and I was wondering what they sounded like ?.
