I know someone who was a party he was at in California, and said he's just as, uh, eccentric as ever. (This was around the time of the Million Man March, and he kept raving how he was good friends with Farrakhan.) 2. Why are all his CDs so expensive? Most box sets that have been out a while end up discounted, but you can never get "Back to Mono" for less than $60. The Best of the "Crystals/Ronettes/Darlene Love" CDs aren't cheap either, usually showing up for $17.95. (Although buy.com has them for about $13) Regards, Rob B. --------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------- Subject: The Association's "Birthday" Received: 08/07/99 5:13 am From: Mr Smokes-Too-Much, wuxxxxxet.se To: Spectropop List, spectxxxxxities.com This is so ridiculous it's almost perverted. I bought a copy of The Association's "Birthday" today for.....*ONE DOLLAR*!!!!! The record store had accidentaly put the wrong price tag on it --- the owner said "Oh, this is actually worth atleast $15, but I guess we can't charge more than the one dollar" so I got it that pervertedly cheap! The sleeve is a quite worn but the vinyl is almost in mint condition. The music is, of course, fantastic. The group's backing tracks have always struck me as pretty tame and sparse, though. They were obviously not students of the Brian Wilson School of Elaborate Backing Tracks.

Hold on there! Carol, are you saying that there WERE Manson sessions which included members of "the clique"? With Dennis (or other BBs) producing? If so, this is big news to me. As far as I know, nothing "released" by Manson has the LA studio musicians backing. And if the Wilson brothers were involved, the dates you speak of have to be Brother Records recordings, and most likely recorded at Gold Star, Western or Sunset Sound. Where are those tapes today? If such recordings exist they would be very interesting to hear. Even more interesting, if such tapes do indeed exist, why haven't we heard ABOUT them before? As an example, we know of Danny Hutton and Redwood's sessions for Brother, but has there ever been documentation of "long-lost" Manson tapes with BB production and LA sessioneers playing ? Brad? Anyone? This is a surprising revelation. Does anyone here know anything about these Manson/BB/clique sessions? I wonder how many tracks were recorded and to what extent the tracks were completed. Could there possibly be an ALBUM in the can of Manson, produced by Brian and Dennis with the clique? If so, I for one would love to hear it; not particularly for the Manson songs and lyrics, but for the production and musicianship of that very special time. Further revelations, anyone?
