Subject: Diane Renay Article In Cha Cha Charming

Hello Everyone,

I want to say that I thought Sheila Burgel's interview
with Diane Renay in the latest edition of Cha Cha
Charming was marvelous!  As anyone can tell from "Girl
Groups", my tastes tend to lean toward R&B, so,
admittedly, I've never been a HUGE fan of Diane Renay
recordings.  I do, however, have my Diane Renay favorites,
"Soft Spoken Guy", "Growing Up Too Fast" and especially,
my one-sided promo copy of "I Had A Dream", with the
fabulous Toys backing Diane.  I sent a copy of that song
to Barbara Harris and she flipped.  She hadn't heard it
since she recorded it.  The Toys were still known as The
Charlettes at that time.  Their stellar performance on
that single netted them a recording deal of their own. 
For me, the combination of Diane's lead and The Toys
backing sells the song.  It's too bad that it wasn't a
hit.  Great record!

I'd also like to take this opportunity to thank everyone
for supporting "Girl Groups -- Fabulous Females That
Rocked The World".

The best to all,
John Clemente

A Legendary Night: Phil Spector's Party
Copyright (c) 1999 Al Aronowitz
"I had just come down the elevator from Suite 37A in the
Waldorf Towers as part of the entourage led by Phil
Spector, himself a legendary figure. In fact he's
several legendary figures. Not only is he renown as the
bad boy of the music business but also as a mad genius
of a musical artist who took words off his father's
gravestone to launch a career as a millionaire record
producer. Mad? He's absolutely nuts! Certainly as crazy
as I've ever been."


Rock'n'Roll veteran did not credit co-writer.
Chuck Berry Sued For Unpaid Royalties 

Rock'n'Roll legend Chuck Berry is being sued by musician
and songwriter Johnnie Johnson over allegations that the
star did not pay Johnson for what he claims to be
significant contributions to Berry's career. Johnson is
seeking unspecified damages and alleges that he helped
Berry create a new musical genre when he helped compose
such standards as "Roll Over Beethoven", "No Particular
Place To Go", "Rock And Roll Music" and "Sweet Little
Sixteen". The lawsuit also claims that Berry registered
all of these songs in his own name and cut the songwriter
out of his rightful share of the partnership. The suit
was filed in a St. Louis Federal District Court on 29th

Meanwhile Johnson is to be the subject of an Atlantic
Records tribute album next year.

I hope these articles are of interest.

Hi All.

There's a new club up and running that ties together all
the reviews and interviews about this wonderful Cd from
England by Peter Lacey. Beam! was masterminded by 60's
EMI record producer David Paramorwjo produced "Kites" by
Simon Dupree & The Big Sound".

Beam! by Peter Lacey is very much in the
Wilson/Spector/Bacharach mould, but is also very much


Don't forget to access the links plus the founders home

Greetings from Roma, 
I am Francesco Lucarelli from Roma and I am currently
writing an authorized book about Crosby, Stills, Nash &

I've been working on this project with a couple of
friends of mine for 8 years now and the book will be out
in the spring of 2001. 

You can have further info at the following link:

I would like to hear from anyone who attended their shows,
kept notes/ticket stubs of the concerts (I need dates &
venues for the concert -chronology) and who might have
been somehow in touch with anyone at CSNY camp. 

Looking forward to hearing from you.

Just wanted to tell you that Girls Groups is by far the
best book ever written on the subject. An absolute must

PS Just so that you know it, it sells extremely well in
the main Virgin Megastore here in Paris, France. And
this does not happen too often.
