Maybe someone can help me with my mystery. In the early 1960s, Dick Clark played a song called "I Want To Get Married" and he identified the artist as Titus Turner. I've never been able to find the record. Titus Turner sounds very much like Lloyd Price, who had a single out by a similar name (I think it was called "I'm Gonna Get Married), and might have also recorded the same song as well. Despite the R&B vocal, the song I'm thinking of was more of a pop song, with a female chorus singing "Johnny you're too young" and the singer answering: "I want to get married [you're too young] Your name I'll carry" Any ideas? One more question. Is there a web site that is in any way as thorough a compendium of titles/artists for records as the Internet Movie Database is for movies and television? It seems a shame to have to rely on retailers to find this kind of info out, since they are confined to in-print recordings.

All the other "welcome" posts brings back a memory for me. I was working at another radio station in Elizabethtown, Ky where I found a copy of the Pixies Three album on Mercury. The same night after I signed off I listened to it. And I thought this is great stuff. I looked up some chart information and they only had one top 40 hit with "Birthday Party" in the fall of 1963. They had three other chart singles, among them a two sider, "442 Glenwood Avenue" b/w "Cold Cold Winter". Only "442 Glenwood Avenue" appeared on this album. But after reading so many mentions on "Cold Cold Winter", I wondered why this song didn't appear on the album. I guess since the album had a party theme, they figured that "Winter" would sound out of place. I recently purchased the Beach Boys' classic "Pet Sounds" CD which contains both the classic mono and newly remixed stereo versions of the classic songs. I noticed Carol Kaye was heavily involved in these sessions. I was reading over the sessionography, and it seems a session musicians' life was just about 24/7. For example one tracking session would go from 9am til 12:30pm. And then another session from another day would run from midnight until 4am. It is a classic album, and it is a revelation to hear these songs in true stereo. Michael G.

They're on Imperial, the band looks like a cross between the Vejtables and the Sugar Shoppe, and the graphics are suitably psychedelic. I'd say album #1 is from 1967 and the follow-up, SUNSHINE AND SHADOWS, is from late '68. They were $4 apiece. The deciding factor is that the second album has a song called "I Hate Pigeons." So who did I just buy two albums by?

They recorded "Ain't Gonna Kiss Ya" which I first heard covered by the Searchers on their "Needles & Pins" album. I have it on a re-release-styled single on ERA, flip-sided with Toni Fisher's "The Big Hurt " which I DO know about. Anyone?...

Tom, when would this fair be held? If you're trying to get luminaries like the Pixies 3 to perform, it sounds great! What kind of other acts/events do you have planned? I live in Sudbury, Ontario, Canada and wouldn't mind the long drive to see groups like the Pixies 3! Any more info you could share with the group? PS, very pleased to see you Kaye! I too have been visiting you're web site regularly! My favourite song of the Pixies is Summertime USA!

Maybe some US listers already saw Brian, but in Japan it was little bit different. At first every fan was so worried. Would he cancel? Would he go to airport? Would he board flight? Would he really arrive Japan? The answer for Brian was YES! For Joe Thomas, the answer was NO. When we saw Brian live we didn't miss Joe at all; my friend said "Maybe Brian doesn't need Joe Thomas anymore." The show was so great. At first there was film with Carol Kaye and Hal Blaine. That was so cool. You looked great, Carol! Then Brian came on stage and sat behind the piano. They played 'The Little Girl I Once Knew" and most of Pet Sounds. All the chorus work was so gorgeous, especially Jeffrey Foskett!! "Better than Beach Boys" some people said. I don't know because I never saw Mike Love. Am I missing something? Then the last song was "Love and Mercy." I saw the concert two times. Everyone heard "Brian is back" so many times, but this time it is true. He IS back!! ========== End of forwarded message ========== --------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------- End
