    I'd love to be the first to welcome Kaye Krebs to the 
    Spectropop list. 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!

    > 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.

    The July issue 134 of Discoveries has the best article I 
    have yet seen on the music of the Astronauts. 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 
    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.

    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

    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
