It's the only song to make the Billboard Hot 100 from this artist, yet I've never seen it available. I've checked the Rhino Girl Group compilations, and thought that Charly Records' "The Red Bird Records Story" box set would have it for sure, but it doesn't. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated. --KFW -----------[ archived by Spectropop ]----------- Subject: Re: Spectropop V#0032 Sent: 1/26/98 5:53 AM Received: 1/26/98 7:26 AM From: Doc Rock, docroXXX@XXXXXXom I have a record I fished out of the reject box of 45s at KTOP in Topeka KS about 1969 or 70 by a group called Morningstar. It is "Wonderful Day" on Kef records. Does anyone know anything about this group? They may have been British. Think "Jan & Dean as a Girl Group."

I think that Emitt Rhodes second solo album is a lost classic. It came out shortly after Paul Mac's first solo effort. The album displays an obvious Beatles/Paul influence. Like Paul, Emitt played all the instruments on his record. IMHO Emitt's record is better than just about any solo Beatles effort. A very consistent work start to finish and one that has aged gracefully. It's available on CD in America.I would put in on par with a record like Something/Anything by Todd Rundgren. > And let me second Scott's recommendation on the Move set >MOVEMENTS and A question regarding the Move set. I believe someone posted that a stereo mix of Flowers In The Rain is included. Are there stereo mixes of any of the other early singles on this set ?

King of the Surf Guitar, Surfin' Hootnanny, Things Are Changing - unmistakable, but it sounds like Lou Adler probably has the clearest recollection of Johnny Angel. > I don't suppose anyone has first hand knowledge, or access > to the Union files showing who worked on specific > sessions and song? This will undoubtedly show up in that book Russ Walensky (sp?) is writing. You know the one that Carol Kaye is always going on about. btw, has anyone else heard anything about that book other than from Carol Kaye? ----------------------- Re: Psychedelic Rock, BashPop wrote: >Among the albums you ought to look for are: > >Around Grapefruit-Grapefruit Tops.

Yeah, "psychedelic rock" conjurs up 13th Floor Elevators and Iron Butterfly. On the other hand, there are probably 15 people in the world who understand a reference to "psych pop." What, is that like a Freudian Dr. Pepper or something? Still, Smashed! Blocked! (White Whale) is a great slice of L.A. pop psychedelia by the British mod band John's Children, and America's Balloon Farm had a great psychedelic non-hit single with Question of Temperature (Laurie). Much of this music is post-surf West Coast vocal pop, but this term, besides being verbose, obviously excludes bands like Flowerpot Men and Grapefruit. It sure ain't pop art, but it's definitely very arty pop. ----------------------- Javed Jafri adds: > One record that I recommend is by a group called > Gandalf...

Charles Koppelman and Don Rubin ended up as music biz corporate moguls. It's hard to imagine them as hands-on in the studio producers creating great psyche-pop. Certainly they functioned as executive producers, whatever the credits may read. > I can't really describe the sound of this wonderful album, > it's haunting at times with a definite psychedelic edge > yet it is very hummable.

My curiosity is piqued! ----------------------- Jeff Glenn chimes in: >Other bands from the 60's you should try are The Parade... File this one under Jerry Riopell, the Spector protogE credited with producing the Blossoms' Things Are Changing and Bonnie and the Treasures' Home Of The Brave. Totally unlike Spector, the Parade sides are very good; the CD is recommended although it's a collection of tracks rather that a fully realized album. >The Merry-Go-Round's one LP is also available on CD >from Japan A&M Yes. The album is called Live! (Rhymes with "give." What a dumb title! Definitely seems like it rhymes with "five" upon first read.) >I'm looking forward to receiving the first set of Sea of Tunes >CD's... Got 'em! Over $200 in one shot - Ouch!!!! X'mas Box, and the first four Unsurpassed Masters. The only one I didn't get is the Concert edition. Haven't had the chance to listen to them yet...anyone else? ----------------------- BigL says: >I really enjoy "A Scratch In The Sky" by the Cryan' >Shames. Now, is this Joe Meek?

A great West Coast companion flick to Where The Boys Are. Connie Francis: What roles she was given! >And at the nightclub on stage who was performing but..... >.....The Modern Folk Quartet! One of the MFQ ended up as shutterbug for the Monkees and several other artists. I saw a wonderful coffee table photo collection by this cameraman last summer and was impressed by the last photo in the book - MFQ itself. They looked very psychedelic indeed, although the shot looks like it was taken circa 1966, merely months after the crew-cut Palm Springs flick. Sorry, I forgot his name. Anyone?
