To David Feldman: Your "credits" post on Buffalo Springfield lends credence to my belief that Buffalo Springfield recorded "Expecting To Fly" at Sunset Sound. Bruce Botnick was the engineer not only on "Expecting To Fly" but also engineered all 6 Doors albums-the majority of them at Sunset Sound. The production of "Expecting To Fly" is very elaborate-especially listening to in stereo. I have a feeling that the song was cut on eight tracks. Let me elaborate on this more. The first Doors was recorded around the early fall of 1966, only on four tracks. When the album and single "Light My Fire" bacame successful, the Doors returned to Sunset Sound to do "Strange Days" that summer, the studio was updated to eight tracks-allowing for more elaborate studio effects. The second Buffalo Springfield album was recorded around the same time as the Doors were working on "Strange Days". If I am not mistaken I have seen the back cover of the Buffalo Springfield album, and it mentioned that this album was recorded "all over" Los Angeles. If you listen to "Expecting To Fly" in stereo, it is something to experience. This ominous drone appears softly on the right channel. As the sound crescendos, it pans from right over to the left, then some nice strings enter center. Followed by a shimmering electric guitar on the right and acoustic guitars and drums left, which switch channel positions midway into the track. Vocals are heard center on one half of each verse and then stereo split on the second half of each verse. The strings then an oboe would enter in the center then stop, followed by a choir (also heard center) would enter in then fade into silence. If "Expecting To Fly" was recorded at Gold Star with its cramped three or four tracks, there is no way to creat a powerful stereo listening experience with so few tracks. Happy listening:):):):):):) Michael G.

Dear Jack: Thanks for the kind word and jumping the gun on announcing the station to Spectropop! The station is still "Under Construction" and I'm uploading more songs. Right now theres around 120 songs on random play and you will hear song repeats now and then. I also need to redo several of the MP3's that have too soft or too loud volume levels and have messed up file names. Live 365's servers don't accept punctuation marks like ` or & and replaces them with a blank space. (that's why it's Jessica James Outlaws, not Jessica James & Outlaws. I have to edit some filenames to get them to fit in the Live365 box) Live365's servers have some problems during the day with all the weekday net traffic and the best time to listen to the station here in Texas is at night. If you live on the west coast I don't think you'll have any trouble, since Live365 streams out of the SF Bay area. MP3 streaming audio just isn't as stable as Real Audio or Netshow. I thought about running this station at 20 or 16kbps but the sound quality becomes very distorted at that bitrate. 24K is the best compromise for phone modems, and it does sound just like a AM radio, especially if your PC has cheap speakers! I only have a phone modem connection at 31.2kbps due to our lousy phone lines here in Kilgore (thanks GTE) and If I used a higher encoding bitrate for 56K or Cable modems I wouldn't be able to hear my station. I also run a fulltime Power Pop station called "Jangle Radio", which I started in January and have lots of fun running the last couple of months. One afternoon I had 14 people listening in at once. I didn't know people were listening at work behind their bosses back! I started GirlPop Radio for the same reasons, there wasn't anyone else on Live365 doing this (only a bunch of Techno/Rap/80s and Top 40 Pap streams..) so why not do it myself? I'm not into this for profit, I just wanted to share and turn people on to one of my favorite genres of music. If you have any questions about the station or requests for songs please feel free to Email me. >Billy G Spradlin's got a station on www.live365.com called >Girlpop.

Hi everybody, I know there are a few Marvelettes fans on this list, so I'd like to alert everybody to a recent UK release entitled "The Essential Collection", put out through Spectrum (#554 8592). It's an 18-track compilation which features three hits ("Young & In Love", "Mr Postman" and " Danger Heartbreak Dead Ahead") and several lesser-known album tracks. However, what makes it essential is the inclusion of six previously unissued tracks. Five are led by Gladys Horton: - "I Just Can't Let Him Down" (reminiscent of the group's "Anything You Wanna Do"); "On The Other Side Of Town"; " Maybe I Dried My Tears For The Very Last Time"; the hand-clapper "Because I Love Him"; and the sugar-pie-honey-bunch stomper "Sugar's Never Been As Sweet As You". One is led by Wanda Rogers, the bluesy "Caught You Puttin' The Game On Love". Also included are other rarities such as "The Boy From Crosstown", "Finders Keepers, Losers Weepers" and the Darnells' "Too Hurt To Cry". Unfortunately, the packaging is pretty meagre, and the sleeve notes give yet another inaccurate bio/line-up of the group. They're also unaware that the Darnells and the Marvelettes were one and the same. Retailing at only UKSTERLING 6.99, however, it's hard to be critical of a package containing such rarities, and credit is due for such imaginative use of Motown back-catalogue, rather than another tired old "hits" collection. I believe there are similar collections imminent by other Hitsville artists. Ian --------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------- Subject: New Burt Bacharach soundtrack? Received: 03/22/00 9:16 am From: Frank N. Stein To: Spectropop! What can you people tell me about a new movie called "Isn't She Great"? It's supposed to have a full soundtrack by Bacharach, including collaborations with Hal David sung by Dionne Warwick! Anyone heard the music? Will the soundtrack be released on CD?
