I have the original already but the other day I heard an almost identical version with an instrumental break in the middle of the song. Any ideas on where I could get this recording?

These both seem to be repackaging of RH's early 70s bubblegum material to coincide with his success with " Escape". I've only seen "Hair" but I have "Night". Here's the skinny: The label is Excelsior, which is a Pickwick International label. it came out in 1980. My copy is from Canada. The track list is: Jennifer Thomkins (Holmes/Vance/Jordan) Ginger Snap (Holmes/Vance/Jordan) I Gotta Know Where It's At (Holmes/Vance) Wanting You (Holmes/Vance) Stained Glass Window (Holmes/Carr/Levitt) Thank You Girl (Holmes/Vance/Jordan) Rainy Night in Georgia (White) All Night Long (Holmes/Vance/Jordan) Thank You Pretty Baby (Vance/Pockriss) The notes: These recordings made between 1969 and 1972 amply demonstrate the many talents of Rupert Holmes; writer, performer and producer. His unique gift for memorable melodies and intelligent, insightful lyrics place him at the forefront of today's finest tunesmiths. Ofered here are Rupert Holmes' most outstanding early works captured during a period which refined and matured the style that has been responsible for his tremeondous acceptance and success. You get the picture! "Thomkins" is the only track I'd heard before, and this version is the Street People recording, only it's a different mix (less guitar).

In the meantime, I'll do >my part to try and get some more info. You probably should contact Dawn Eden about that. She really has become the Boettcher historian over the years, with her fine liner notes to the Ballroom, Sagittarius and Millennium reissues. From the Liner notes of the Ballroom and Millennium CD's, Clark signed Curt to his "Our Productions" company in 1966 and I believe also owned the rights to most of his songs. (And Curt didn't receive any royalties over the years from these songs, including his work with the Association and Tommy Roe, a shame!) So its a good bet this is the way the Hep Stars got these songs. I just wonder if the entire album was recorded in Sweden, or if backing tracks were recorded in L.A. and then shipped to Sweden for the Hep Stars to overdub vocals on. Its an interesting album and one I would kill to get a copy of. I never knew their was a Abba-Ballroom connection! Thanks for the Information David! Billy G.

The ABKCO set is credited as mastered by Larry >Levine and Spector himself. Bill Inglot told me on the telephone once he was working with Larry Levine on a Spector set. Goldmine even ran an article on it and listed all the tracks. Bill told me Spector wanted everything, except for maybe some newer recordings by Darlene Love in mono. My memory is not good, but I think it was Inglot that ask Larry Levine to help since Spector is so hard to work with and he trusts Larry Levine. The Rhino set never came out, no telling how much money people spend on Spector and have nothing to show for it. Phil charges for studio time everytime he reissues stuff I am told, so he gets paid for all the remixes he does whether issued or not. The Abkco set is junk like most everything else they put out. But better than nothing. The individual artist Cds (Ronettes, Crystals, and darlene Love) credit mastering by Larry Levine and Jody Klein.

He sometimes sell CD-r's of it at record fairs but he forgot to bring copies with him today. Sony Japan had apparently intended it to be released on CD but the plan was for some reason not carried out! :-( Jamie, you know anything about this? This listy record fair score: the soundtrack to Popeye, arranged and conducted by Van Dyke Parks! It's like a prototype for "Jump!"....lots of good songs by Harry Nilsson too. Only cost me about $2 :-) T. --------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------- Subject: To David Mirich Received: 08/31/99 12:40 am From: Carol Kaye, caroxxxxxhlink.net To: Spectropop List, spectxxxxxities.com David, I know you meant well, and you had a lot of nice compliments to me, thank you for those.
