Received: 07/26/99 6:28 am From: WILLIAM STOS, xxxxxet.com To: Spectropop List, spectxxxxxities.com There's is a VH1 poll going on now ranking Rock's best women. The Ronettes have 5 votes, the Shirelles, none, Carole King, none, Tina Turner, 02 , Diana Ross 430+! What's going on? I'm sorry, but I don't think she deserves to be number 1 while Aretha Franklin and Dusty Sprinfield have a paltry 3-4 votes each! I hope all Spectropopers go to vote for this poll. Choose someone who you feel best represent women in rock. I added the Chiffons name onto the list as my vote out of principle (I love 'em so much I just wanted to see there name in print!) but I think Spectropoppers should make our voice count and choose one artist to support. Check the list and write back with you nomination. Even if the Ronettes, Aretha or Dionne Warwick don't overtake Diana, they desertve much more praise than they're getting!

So again I >wondered.... Hi John. Not sure about that, is news to me....don't think I have this group in my log, but the log is sort of incomplete as it was meant *only* as an income-receiving data thing originally (many of our group kept logs for this same reason, but some threw theirs away)....so many times I just wrote down "group" along with the studio/date/ contractor's name/hours, etc. Could be, as I found something in my log we cut for the Hollies and another UK group here and there (not much tho'), and there was an Autralian group that flew in to hire us for dates (and of course many groups in the USA from all over too). I don't think so, but will check with the Union contract book-writer, Russ Wapensky, and get back to you on this, I'm curious myself.

It was: "According to Peter Tork, which famous person once tried out for the Monkees" THEIR correct answer was...Paul Williams. But it did make me wonder what would have happened had some of the "rejects" actually been selected. Would that have deprived us of some of their music. From what I understand, the audition advertisement brought out just about anyone who could hold a guitar and a tune. I only have a short list of people I have heard auditioned for the TV show. Some are prominent, and a few are lesser known. If you have any others you know about, let me know. Keith Allison (Paul Revere & the Raiders) Stephen Stills Van Dyke Parks Harry Nilsson Danny Hutton (Three Dog Night) Jerry Yester (Lovin Spoonful and Association) Tim Rooney (Mickey Rooney's Son) Paul Williams Don Scardino (A TV and Film actor) Paul Peterson (played Jeff Stone on The Donna Reed Show and scored a top-10 hit in '63 with "My Dad") Bill Chadwick (Session guitar player and producer) John London (session bass player) Steve Young (Folk singer/songwriter, wrote "Seven Bridges Road" for the Eagles) --------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------- Subject: Re: Buying Original 60's Girl Group Vinyl Received: 07/26/99 6:28 am From: WILLIAM STOS, xxxxxet.com To: Spectropop List, spectxxxxxities.com > Greetings all.

Chris! There is a collector named JD Doyle who have thousands of old GG records for sale. Some of his stock is pretty pricey, but very obscure. I also recall finding a vinyl shop located in Hollywood with many old rare GG records including an album of Flirtations material! Do some checking over the net and I'm sure you'll find these places!

Carol, What about Jan? I always heard that he did scores?

Hello Carol, and thank you again for sharing your wonderful insights on the recording scene! I wonder though, how do you rate the Nashville studio musicians in comparison to your own group who worked in L.A.?? Both past and present. I would have thought that the musicianship would be of similar quality in both cities. I ask this as I think that many of the L.A. people migrated to Nashville to continue their careers. Joe Osborn, James Burton, and later on, Albert Lee and Dann Huff. Regards!

Dick Clark played the song identified as "Titus Turner" for more than a month on AB, and identified it as "I *** WANT*** To Get Married.
