    Thank you for your fascinating answers to my questions. 
    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:

    >(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).

    >Don't worry, Doc - it's not necessarily off-the-wall to

    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

    >that there were a number of recordings by female vocalists

    >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.

    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!

    >On the rhythm tracks...Hal Blaine: drums, Joe Osborne: 
    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
