    Hi Jeff
    I checked "Mega-Guide for Singles" and cam up with two of
    the four dates you're looking for:
    1. "Over The Hill And Down In The Valley" (ZXSE 12301)/"I 
    Will Be Free" (ZXSE 12302) by The Poor Boys (General 
    American GA-005). 
    3. "Yesterday Is Gone" (Richard Bowen & Robert Gilly, 
    A-1051)/"Phantom In The Rain" (Robert Gilly & Richard 
    Bowen & Harold Finch, A-1052) by The Source on American 
    International Records A-141 
    The other two aren't listed.

    Um....I don't know, probably was already booked for
    another date, it happens.  You're "never sick" in this
    business, if you want to work again.  I never take calls
    and then "get out of them", you just don't do
    that....they book about 2-3 weeks ahead mostly but
    sometimes you're called 1-2 days ahead too.

    I am a lurker on this list, reading and learning.  I was
    wondering if anyone could direct me (or even possibly
    provide me) to some jpegs of the artwork for this disk?
    Any help would be appreciated.

    In answer to Dan Murphy's query re Creation and Revola:
    having spoken recently to Joe Foster and asked basically
    the same question, it would seem that Curt B. related
    goodies will eventually continue to gain UK release.
    Curt's new one, possibly with more tracks, should surface
    here later in the year, and Joe has mentioned those extra
    Millennium tracks. Joe and Alan McGee have been very busy
    setting up Poptones for the Net. Hang in there -Goodies to
    In the meantime, the new Ripples Volumes are just released
    here. Volume 5 is called Beach Bash (Sequel NEMCD 387) and
    is Surf Pop/Frat Rock - happy silly beach BBQ stuff, and
    Volume 6 is called Jingle Jangle Mornings (NEMC

    I sent a message to Joey Stec regarding these upcoming
    releases.  He mentioned that due to Japanese export laws,
    the will not be exported to the States.  However, this
    fall they will be released in the UK on the Pop Tunes
    label.  Pop Tunes is the new name for the Creation label.
    So it might be best to wait until then.  At least we'll
    get the liner notes in English.  Now if Pop Tunes would
    release Dreamsville's Curt Boettcher compilation "Misty
    Mirage", I'd be a happy camper.  I'll check with Joey
    >from time to time since he has been involved with these
    releases and pass along to you what I find out.

    rain (Temps).

    Okay you all, here's another query: If you could have
    been present at ONE recording session for one single song,
    which would it be? And why? And what would you have
    changed / suggested, if anything? That's not a heretical
    question at all, simply supposition  :  ). Let's all
    assume that we'd like to have been present at Tina's
    "River Deep," so aside from that historic date... which
    would you choose? I'd choose "A Fine, Fine Boy," just to
    see how he layered the sound, and to count how many
    people he had crammed in there; and what a chance to see
    and hear Darlene Love "taking it out to the finish." And
    I think it would have been a great thrill to see all
    those instruments "mping around, and the whole
    machine-gun effect that Spector achieves. This is one of
    the underrated greats, I think. What a background...
    "send the Crystals over-- and tell them to bring their
    instruments!" Incidentally, this selection sounds best on
    an original old 45. 
    And what would I suggest / change? Oh, I think nothing...
