Anyone? 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!!!!!

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 Keith....it 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 Paxton. 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!

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).
