    Perhaps we have cleared up the mystery on "There Never Was
    a Day." 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 
    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

    I too want to welcome Kaye Krebs of the Pixies Three. 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.

    I went into a store I never go to up in the Heights today,
    since I was in the neighborhood, and digging through the 
    bins, I found two albums by some group called the Sunshine
    Company. 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?

    Anyone know anything about this group called The Ribbons? 
    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. 
    Thanks in advance,

    >appearence at the Western Fair in London, Canada!
    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! 
    Will : )

    Subject:     (Tokyo) Life with Brian
    Hi all,
    I spent a few wonderful days last week, because I saw 
    Brian Wilson tour in Japan. Maybe some US listers 
    already saw Brian, but in Japan it was little bit 
    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!!
