    Hi Jamie,
    Neither Rumors nor Wait & See are on the new Eternity's 
    Children compilation on Revola/Creation, the reason being 
    that those songs were on A&M and the compilation 
    concentrates on Eternity's EMI-owned material. Both sides 
    are brilliant, particularly Wait & See, and would be 
    perfect for an A&M Records compilation of '60s material, 
    something which would be essential for soft pop collectors. 
    Who knows, maybe one of those will materialize one day :-)
    Spectropop Rules!!!!!
    Take Care,
    David Bash

    Unfortunately, the A&M tracks were unavailable for 
    licensing in time due to the upheavals of the Universal 
    reorganisation....however, some info:
    These songs and a few others which were never released 
    were produced by Keith Olsen "In some Jingle studio in 
    Texas!" according to is probably his solo 
    production debut....any Curt-like touches are entirely due
    to his influence on group leader Bruce Blackman and to 
    Keith's skill with this type of sound. Crocked Foxx were 
    the band's slightly shady management company, who often 
    took credit for things, and had no connection to Gary 
    Due to administrative oversight EC's A&M contract lapsed 
    leaving them free to go to Tower records, not in 
    retrospect a good move....the original lineup started to 
    fall apart due to clashes with management over publishing 
    etc. which got pretty acrimonious, Bruce Blackman (the 
    main songwriter) and Johnny Walker (Vocalist on 'Mrs. 
    Bluebird) reconvening various ex-members as they left into
    an alternate version of the band sometimes known just as 
    the Children. Oddly, a couple of the session guys brought 
    in by Gary Paxton to finish the second album sought this 
    lineup out & joined them! Gary Paxton, by this time in 
    Nashville, contacted them and produced an album for RCA in
    about 1970, has anyone ever seen/heard this? This same 
    version of the band later became Starbuck.
    Hope this is of interest!

    I only remember an episode of "Bewitched" featuring B&H. I
    think they did "Blow You a Kiss in the Wind". But my 
    memories are as fallible as anyone's.

    Phil was on an episode of I Dream Of Jeannie, I have it on 
    tape somewhere, haven`t viewed it in awhile but it is in 
    color. Yes, Boyce & Hart are on it. I believe they do 
    perform a song, I think they lip sync to Alice Long 
    (you`re my favorite girlfriend). After they do it, Jeannie 
    turns to Phil and claps her hands excitedly and asks Phil 
    if he thinks they`re "groovy" ....something to that effect
    anyway. As I said I haven`t watched the tape in a long time. 
    I may not be 100% correct on what they sing. 
    Phil also appeared on a British show called TJ`s. He 
    introduces the DC5 and there is a "video" of Phil and DC5 
    running away from screaming girl fans in the courtyard of 
    Phil`s mansion. Phil also sings the theme song "Down At 
    TJ`s" with a full wall of sound. Around the same time Phil
    had scored and sung the theme to a special airing of The 
    Lucy Show called Lucy In London. Another wall of sound 
    production but more psychedelic and "mod" - almost sounds 
    like it is going to turn into a Beach Boys tune a la Good 
    Vibrations. The "video" that accompanies it is "far out", 
    Lucy all dressed up like a swingin` mod. Vintage stuff. 
    Phil has also reportedly been on episodes of Mannix and 
    Mission Impossible but I have never seen them. I only have
    the TJ`s and Lucy In London appearances.

    I have this episode on video. It is in colour, and Boyce 
    and Hart lip-synch to a song called "Out & About", which 
    was isued on A&M 858. Not sure of the date of the episode,
    but the song was in the US charts in August '67, (got to 
    #39 on Billboard).
