What IS that >AWESOME instrumental track that the "wrecking crew" is >playing?!?!?!? Holy CRAP! Who made it? When? Jack. I agree 100%, although I do not believe that is really a Spector recording, I sure as hell was blown away by the faux wall of sound. I would love to get ahold of that myself! I cranked up the surround sound and was amazed, certain parts were reminiscent of several Spector classics but yet ambiguous enough to not be sure. Also (I liked the way Carol and Hal were "pointed out". Carol, any comments? John Rausch Phil Spector`s Wall Of Sound @ http://members.tripod.com/~rauschj/ PS , Thanks Carol for the info on the postponed Spector documentary,pleas keep us posted! --------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------- Subject: Gold Star and BB movie Received: 03/01/00 2:19 am From: Carol Kaye To: Spectropop! >p.s. the bass player was a cutie. Looked just like Ms. Kaye. Yes, wasn't Ms. Tera Hendrickson who played my part really pretty? She captured that look too of how I dressed etc. - she worked hard on the picking of the bass for authenticity from what I hear (she's a bona-fide bassist) -- thanks for your compliment. I never worked for Phil after his last hit dates (River Deep Mountain High etc.) probably around 1966 but then did do a record date or 2 for him at A&M, his "come-back sessions" which were scrapped (May of '69). I've never seen any other engineer at Gold Star w/Phil except Stan Ross and Larry Levine. Whoever else may have worked for Phil could have been on vocal overdubs, not saying that Jim Hilton wasn't there, just wasn't on the tracking dates at all from what I can remember, it was always Larry Levine up through the River Deep Mountain High period. On the BB movie, well there's a lot of technicalities that aren't correct (Spector at Western with us all instead of Gold Star, tracking not observed, the way we sat, Phil's image... etc.) and I am concerned about the true nature portrayed on film of Brian's persona as our bunch of studio musicians know him...see the booklet with our interviews in of Pet Sounds. I'm curious to see what pt. II is like.

Seems like anytime I see anything having to do with Phil, it's the same old tired clips. Also, is there any plans on releasing The Wrecking Crew's outakes? Something like what The Beach Boys did with Pet Sounds. It would be awesome to listen to. --------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------- Subject: Love "Four Sail" Received: 02/29/00 4:20 am From: Michael White To: Spectropop! Here's a simple one: does anybody know if Love's vastly underrated "Four Sail" album has ever been issued on CD?

I told my buddy that I keep looking at the Mystery Trend CD whenever I go to the one store around here that has it. But maybe I don't pick it up, despite the recommendations I got here, because I was a bit disappointed with the Sagittarius CD I did buy. There's some great tunes on it but I think that I have a much higher standard for CD's than I do for vinyl. In fact I know I do. Which is going to be a problem if I want to find a lot of this stuff. For some reason I almost always find CD reissues to be a bit "decontextualized" and that changes the entire experience of discovering a couple of great tunes. But that's another story entirely. Anyway my buddy thought he had the CD. Or at least the name rang a bell. He wouldn't normally have too much stuff like this but he's a Louie Louie collector and he thought Mystery Trend was the name of this band whose CD he'd recently gotten for their version of Louie Louie. But as it turned out, he was wrong. The band was called "Neighb'rhood Children". An honest mistake. All those names sound the same. Since it was on Sundazed, he lent it to me anyway. Again my first reaction was "If I found this on vinyl and I wondered if it was the kind of thing I would like, then I'd love this". But there is some great stuff here. And their version of "Can't buy me love" is one of the best Beatle covers I've ever heard. I don't think I'll buy myself a copy but I might tape it before I return it. I know I could have just said "here's a band I just heard and they're pretty good" but I don't tell stories that way.
