However, I'm going to be suspicious about the things you say from now on, because I'm afraid I caught you feeding us a bunch of bull: Carol wrote in part: >Plus being born poor, being a stutterer, ugly >(buck teeth)... Carol, those of us who have seen photos of you (the Pet Sounds era pictures that appear in various publications) are aware of what a FOX you are. So don't try to put any fast ones past us around here. We's ex-purts!:) (Plus, remember, you gave my friend Gary guitar lessons when you lived in Boulder).

Helfinger/D. Grant, mhexxxxxrlog.com >Don't worry, Doc - it's not necessarily off-the-wall to >suggest connections between some current female New >Country artists and the Girl Group Sound. Sorry that I can't remember Doc's initial post, but I'd concur with the general idea, and (hoping that this wasn't already mentioned) would bring up the fact that Faith Hill's recent "This Kiss" is absolutely boffo sixties girlgroup sounding cotton-candy, with only a teeny bit of steel guitar to allow it to pass muster on modern country stations. > >Even during the early 60s and late 50s, C&W and Girl >Groups weren't mutually exclusive sets. It seems to me >that there were a number of recordings by female vocalists >of that time - Connie Francis and Skeeter Davis come to >mind first - that straddled the two genres. Don't know about Connie Francis one way or the other, but you're dead right about Skeeter Davis. I guess I'd also chime in with Brenda Lee as another example. I think that what we're probably talking about is that "Countrypolitan" thang that was happening back in the early sixties; chalk it up basically to Owen Bradley, Chet Atkins, and the Anita Kerr Singers. Hope I've got this right--I'm talking off the top of my head here, so if someone can add more better facts, please do. Interesting note to ponder in the midst of this C& W-slash-girlgroup-pop thread: In Will Friedwald's otherwise *superb* "Sinatra! The Song Is You: A Singer's Art," the author at one point refers to Hal Blaine and Leon Russell as "Nashville rock-style players." Another interesting note to ponder: on the Ace "Where The Girls Are" cd is a PURE girlgroup track in the Shangri-La vein, by, get this, Dolly Parton. Produced by Ray "the streak" Stevens. jack "don't look ethel!" madani --------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------- Subject: Re: Country GG Received: 08/22/99 1:38 pm From: Michael B Kelly, docxxxxx.com To: Spectropop List, spectxxxxxities.com RE: Country GG Michael H., You're right about Debbi Horn. I have a set of her Country cassettes. I had the privilege of MCing the Pixies reunion show in '91. She's the best! But the ultimate Country GG crossover early 60s artist was Sue Thompson! In case you missed my Discoveries article on her, I can e-mail it to you -- or anyone! Thanks.

Spradlin, bgsprxxxxxhlink.net To: Spectropop List, spectxxxxxities.com >On the rhythm tracks...Hal Blaine: drums, Joe Osborne: >bass, Dear Bob & Carol: I'm not a bass player, but I'm curious about what kind of equipment Joe Osborne used on those Association albums. The "sound" of his bass playing was very distinctive, almost a "lead bass" sound, very trebly and upfront. (the start of "Windy", or that little lick on "Time For Livin" for example) You dont hear that sound anymore on today's recordings! Thanks! Billy G.
