Hi Will, Shel Talmy produced most of The (Blue) Orchids sides, (but not the flip of their first 45, nor the 45 they later cut as the Exceptions). He also produced "Mr Scrooge", which was only issued on the soundtrack album of the "Just For You" movie in which the girls sang it. The group was brought to Talmy by their manager, Larry Page. In later interviews, Talmy was dismissive about these records, and offensive about the group. However, when I recently contacted ex-Orchid Pam Jarman for the "Girls Scene" liner notes, she said he was fine to work for, so I guess the working relationship at the time was OK.

Dave...It was my pleasure..I found out about it from Brother Cleve of Combustible Edison who played it at the final "In Hi-Fi" night at NYC's Greenwich Village "Bar d'O" recently. He had found out about it from the Fantastic Plastic Machine while he too was in NYC recently. Apparently its huge amont the soft poppers in Japan...

I've always been a big fan of that group and their lone chart single "Popsicles and Icicles". I picked up their one Chattacoochee album in May 1981. Played it until I wore out the grooves. In 1995 (ot thereabouts) Collectibles reissued the album on compact disc, with one bonus track "He's Good To Me". According to the CD liner notes, the Murmaids issued a version of the Traffic song "Paper Sun" on Liberty. It totally flopped. Supposedly that version of the Murmaids were not the original members. Obviously Liberty gave the group one more shot with "Song Through Perception" and that single met with the same fate as "Paper Sun". I would love to hear those Liberty singles. Michael G.

I wish I knew as much about Rimsky-Korsakov's oeuvre as I do about Lesley Gore's! There are so many examples of this kind of borrowing. Obviously, there aren't financial considerations in the case of most classical music cops. But I was wondering if anyone had strong feellings about the ethical considerations about not crediting the original composers. And are there examples of where the original composer WAS credited? If we can credit the original composer of "Sweet Little Sixteen," why can't we credit the original composer of "O Sole Mio?"
