    A big thank you to DJ Jimmie B for recommending the RCA
    LP by The Match. I was thrilled to find that in addition
    to the cover of "Through Spray Colored Glasses," it
    contains versions of Roger Nichols' "Don't Take Your Time"
    and Nichols & Paul Williams' "Morning I'll Be Moving On."
    (Which is the closing song of my radio show every week!)
    Whitebread vocal heaven!!!!

         Hi, it's me again, I've got another question.  I just
    love Reparata and the Delrons and am wondering what
    happened to them, especially Reparata.  I just love her
    voice!  Does anybody know of any collections of Reparata
    and the Delrons that are available to buy and from where? 
    I only have the Whenever a Teenager Cries Collectables CD.
    I heard about a collection called Golden Classics.  I
    think it's a cassette, does anybody know the track list on
    it?  If anyone could direct me to any other CDs or
    cassettes, it would be much appreciated.

    Hi everybody,
    I'm rejoining the Spectropop list after having been a
    subscriber about three years ago.  I've just spent the
    weekend at the WFMU record fair in NYC, buying lots of
    late 60's melodic psych-pop, and I found some complete
    GEMS!!!  Can anyone give me any more info than I've got on
    the following SMASHING soft pop groups (these are all 45s)?
    I'd be thrilled with any nuggets of knowlege:
    Click - "Dancing Babies/The Fat Lady in the Wicker Chair"
    and "Girl with a Mind/Rainmaker" on Laurie
    Saint Jacques - "She Was Beautiful/Brandy" on GRT
    Mid-Day Rain "Welcome to the Rain/Sunday Mourning" on RCA
    (this is one of the best records I've found in all my days
    of searching...)
    Sweet Charity "Take a Look at Love/I've Got to Laugh" on
    These are all beautiful, gentle records that I would die
    to find more of. If anybody can point me in the direction
    of more, I'd do whatever I could to thank them.  I've got
    tons and tons of obscure gentle pop, folk-pop and
    pop-psych from this period, so if anybody cares to swap
    tapes, let me know.
    ***Find of the Fair: a single on Liberty by a group called
    the Murmaids, doing a cover of the Michael Lloyd/Smoke
    song "SongThrough Perception!"  A complete smash!
    Over to you,

    Hi everyone!
    Thanks for the Paper Dolls info Ian!  Now here's another
    question regarding the Blue Orchids.  Some one recently
    asked me about their recordings produced by Shel Talmy. 
    Can anyone tell me about Shel and his relation to the
    Orchids?  This guy is putting together a Shel Talmy web
    site believe it or not!  I'm recommending him to
    Spectropop as a new member, but until then, help would be
    appreciated.  Also, was "Mister Scrooge" ever released on
    a single?

    To:          Spectropop List 
    Regarding the unofficial unissued Spector track (Crystals'
    "Chico's Girl") that was mentioned a few posts back. 
    Having listened to it a few more times, I've revised my
    opinion and would say that it is after all Barbara Alston
    on lead vocal, and not Pat Wright as I'd first thought.

    Hi there
    A few months ago, I saw an ad for a double CD on Westside
    called "On Broadway" comprsing Brill Building material.
    Eventhough it was UK issue , I still haven't seen a copy
    of it. Did it actually come out? Also does it contain any
    rare or unreleased stuff? I would aprreciate any
    information on this, even a track listing if possible.
    Thanks for your help
    All the best

    Subject:     Song of India & Just Let Me Cry
    Sent:        Mon, 08 Nov 1999 22:38:33 
    From:        Jamie LePage
    I was listening to Lesley Gore's "Just Let Me Cry" for
    the gazillionth time and only realized now that it is
    based on Russian composer Rimsky-Korsakov's Song of India.
    Just Let Me Cry is written by Barkan/Raleigh. They also
    wrote She's a Fool, That's the Way Boys Are and others
    for Lesley. 
    Nothing earthshaking here, but I did find it interesting.
    Strange that I never realized it before.
