The Pixies Three, the Shangri-Las and Reparata and the Delrons are held in great esteem by me as my favourite girl groups of all time. By the way, Kaye, I'm the same Tom who recently inquired about a possible Pixies appearence at the Western Fair in London, Canada! Glad to have you on the list, Kaye!

Received: 07/18/99 1:40 am From: David Feldman, fexxxxxnderables.com To: Spectropop List, spectxxxxxities.com > Welcome Kaye Krebs of the fabulous > Pixies Three! I second that! How exciting to have you here, Kaye. I must have been under a rock, but I wasn't familiar with your music until I bought "Growin' Up Too Fast" and your songs were the highlight of the wonderful set for me. I've been going to your website to see if any CD's have become available, but so far, no luck.. Your harmonies knock me out and hope I have an opportunity to see you live (any planned dates in the near future?). You were on my mind for another record. There is a public access in New York City called "Wild Record Collection." It is very hard to describe, but the host, Snuffles, is a stuffed polar bear, and Snuffles dances to records with his stuffed animal pals. Last Monday was the show's third anniversary, so all the songs or the group had something to do with the number three. The show was kicked off with them dancing to " Birthday Party" and followed it with "Welcome to the Party." Snuffles even talked about how much "he" loved the Pixies Three. For any Spectropoppers who might not be familiar with the Pixies Three, four wonderful songs of theirs are contained in "Growin' Up Too Fast," which Amazon is selling for 68% off of the retail price.

It was written by a Colorado dentist (the 'Nauts were products of Boulder) who did a lot of work researching the article. In another article written by Dominic Priori several years ago on his choices for the greatest surf albums of all-time, he rated the Astronaut's album "Surfin' with the Astronauts" at No. 2. Priori said that "the richest, deepest, most aquatic sounding surf music was made by the Astronauts". The author of the current article interviewed some of the members of the band which added some delightful passages. However, there was virtually no information about one of the bands members, Dennis Lindsey. Dennis was a longtime friend of mine through the years that I lived in Boulder. He died of a heart attack several years ago after a lifetime of fighting his problem with alcohol. Dennis was a very special individual, that rare individual who possesses true humility. For the seven years that I daily interacted with Dennis, he never once mentioned that he was a member of the Astronauts. I only learned about it in a full-page article in the local paper after he died. Dennis was a soft spoken, mild mannered cowboy-looking fellow scooting around town on his small Honda motorcycle. He would often bring his guitar up to my ranch for my twice yearly parties and would soon have a crowd of people around him down by the lake singing songs. I was talking to Jim Gallagher one day (a fellow member of the 'Nauts) who shared with me many special stories about Dennis. When I get a moment in the next few days, I will try and right a few these stories down. In the meantime, buy this Discoveries issue and read about this wonderful landlocked surfin' band. Also, if you get a chance, buy the excellent CD by Bear Family, Rarities -- I promise you won't regret it.

Could you be thinking of > another group? Or am I going bonkers? You may well be bonkers. Only your headdresser knows for sure. But perhaps this will "clair(ol)" things up. The Fifth Dimension did do a song called "The Eleventh Hour" written by Jim Webb wherein the only lyrics are "What A Groovy Day we had today." It was on an the "Stoned Soul Picnic" LP. I wonder if that could be it...Jimmy Botticelli --------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------- Subject: Thanks Received: 07/18/99 1:40 am From: CLAUDIA CUNNINGHAM, xxxxxv.net To: Spectropop List, Spectxxxxxities.com Thanks to Carol Kaye for the info on Lesley Gore. I plan on picking up those books you mentioned, particulary BACK BEAT, this week in fact. I am so happy you folks are getting the recognition you so richly deserve. IT'S ABOUT TIME!! YOU WERE 60's music and it is an honor to be able to speak with you.. I know you have spoken of studio musician Leon Russell..He is in Albany, NY this weekend appearing with the Neville Brothers. I will definitely stop in and see them...Regards ..Claudia --------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------- Subject: The Match Received: 07/18/99 1:40 am From: DJ JimmyB, DJJimxxxxxcom To: Spectropop List, spectxxxxxities.com I just got this LP on RCA by The Match called "A New Light." Liners are by Henry Mancini and the lyrics sound Beach Boyish meets late 6T's hippie sensibilities. But the melodies and arrangements are pure soft rock. I am flipping out over this album. I heard a DJ buddy (from Combustible Edison) spin it at Bar d'O in NYC last week and he told me the Japanese Soft Rock collectors all say this is a "must have." Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance and welcome to the Pixies Three lady. Many a radio show of mine has featured "Birthday Party" and "442 Glenwood Avenue". Jimmy Botticelli/"Jimmy's Easy" airs on WMBR-FM, 88.1 in Cambridge, MA at MIT on Tuesdays from 6-8a.m. It can be heard in real time by downloading Real Audio and going to www.wmbr.org --------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------- ADMIN NOTE: A commercial messages may be posted to the list provided the message meets the following criteria: 1.
