Boettcher also had some production involvement I believe in Bruce Johnston's Goin' Public, which was recently reissued on Demon records. It's *really* not worth getting though... http://www.spectropop.com/go2/curtboettcher.html --------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------- Message: 2 Date: Thu, 07 Dec 2000 09:50:42 -0800 From: David Ponak Subject: Harrison messes with Spector I haven't heard the "Plastic Ono Band" remix/remaster yet, but check this out. Not only has George Harrison remixed portions of "All Things Must Pass" for the reissue coming on Jan. 23, he's even recorded a new version of "My Sweet Lord." This truly sounds scarey. David Ponak A&R-TOKYOPOP Music 5670 Wilshire Blvd. Los Angeles, CA 90036 (323) 692-6827 www.tokyopop.com >From Yahoo: Thursday December 07 09:00 AM EST George Harrison Records New Music For 'All Things Must Pass' Reissue (12/7/00, 07 a.m. ET) -George Harrison kept a fairly low profile since being attacked at his home last December, but he's ready to share his music with the world again. Old friend Gary Wright , who's known Harrison for more than 30 years, told LAUNCH that the former Beatle has a surprise in store for his fans in the new year. " George is coming out with a new version of All Things Must Pass," said Wright. "Some of the tracks [are] remixed. He re-cut 'My Sweet Lord'--sounds great, it's a new version of it--and he's done a whole new re-packaging of it, and it looks great. It'll be a fun thing." All Things Must Pass, Harrison's seminal 1970 solo album, will be re-released on January 23. Originally a three-LP set, the new version has two CDs, and all the music has been remixed by Harrison. Besides " My Sweet Lord (2000)," the set includes new liner notes from Harrison and four previously-unissued tracks--a rough mix of " What Is Life," which Harrison had forgotten about; " I Live For You," an unreleased outtake; "Beware Of Darkness," an alternate version of the song that's missing some of the lyrics; and " Let It Down," found on the same tape as the new version of "Beware Of Darkness." The "Original Jam," which filled both sides of the third record on the 1970 release, is also featured, and it's been resequenced to follow the actual order of the recordings. On the original album, the order was changed to accommodate the time constraints of the vinyl LP. All Things Must Pass was the first solo collection from one of the Beatles to hit number one on the album chart, and the original " My Sweet Lord" was the first solo single from a member of the group to top the pop chart. The album features contributions from Wright, Ringo Starr, Eric Clapton, Peter Frampton, Phil Collins, and Billy Preston, among others, and was produced by Phil Spector. The All Things Must Pass track listing is: DISC ONE: "I'd Have You Anytime," "My Sweet Lord," "Wah-Wah," "Isn't It A Pity," "What Is Life," "If Not For You," "Behind That Locked Door," " Let It Down," "Run Of The Mill,"and the previously-unreleased "I Live For You," "Beware Of Darkness," "Let It Down," "What Is Life,"and "My Sweet Lord (2000)." DISC TWO: "Beware Of Darkness," "Apple Scruffs," "Ballad Of Sir Frankie Crisp (Let It Roll)," "Awaiting On You All," "All Things Must Pass," "I Dig Love," "Art Of Dying," "Isn't It A Pity (version two)," "Hear Me Lord,"and the resequenced "Original Jam"-- "It's Johnny's Birthday," " Plug Me In," "I Remember Jeep," "Thanks For The Pepperoni,"and "Out Of The Blue." -- Bruce Simon, New York --------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------- Message: 3 Date: Thu, 07 Dec 2000 04:04:44 -0800 (PST) From: Andrew Hickey Subject: Re: You don't love me > > The cover I search seems to be done in the mid 60's with > > a very typical guitar "pop" riff and a up-tempo style, > > and sung by a man.

Hello Brice Yeah I know the one you mean. There were numerous reggae versions of this song before the Dawn Penn one, most notably (to me, anyway) the Big Youth 'toast' on 'Screaming Target'. The sixties version though, I have on a tape somewhere and I've no idea who it's by. It was very interesting for me to hear it for the first time though, as I had thought that it had always been a reggae track, and there was this thing with a 'Green Onions' riff and a 'Hit The Road Jack' type backbeat. It's one of those white RnB records that's either a bunch of English guys trying to sound American or a bunch of American guys trying to sound English (amazing how stylistically incestuous everyone was back then). I realise this hasn't been that much help to you, but that's all I know. If you're desperate, put up a shout on one of the E groups northern soul lists and somebody will probably come back to you with everything bar the drummers inside leg measurement.
