Attention all Spectropoppers, I have just read and
signed the online petition: "Send Jeff Barry and Ellie
Greenwich to Cleveland!"

I too think that they both should be in the Rock & Roll
Hall of Fame. As I stated with my signature, "it's about
time. They will be in great company."

I just wish I could be there.

Excellent idea, and am happy to be a part of it! 
There would be no 'sixties without the Dynamic Duo...

Leslie Gore's "Summer & Sandy" as remastered on the
Rhino Comp "Sunshine Lollipops & Rainbows" has virtually
NO bassline. Someone was playing it wayyyy in the
background, but what happened during the remastering? Was
it from one of those "electronically enhanced for stereo
reproduction" deals or what...JB/my fave gore rekkid too!

Subject: Spector Xmas album

I bought the original LP back when it first came out.
Later, I got the stereo LP and the mono CD. I featured
the various versions on my radio show for 20 years.

Last December, I was listening to a syndicated oldies
program and I heard a long version of one cut. I can't
recall which it was, but I think it was one of the
Ronettes tracks. Anyone know anything about such a

Subject: Two favours to ask

I have two favours to ask the members of this list.
Both are connected with the fact that the singer in my
band just quit (acrimoniously) because she feels she
has no talent.

The first favour is this - could as many people as
possible go to - a
page for a side project we're both involved in,
download 'Summer In My Mind' , '24 Hours Old' and/or
'Kiev', and send me your honest opinions of those
tracks, particularly the vocals? I make no profit from
this, and I believe you will honestly enjoy the tracks,
but I am also trying to show her just how talented she
really is in other people's eyes. I'll also pass any
comments on to the writers (her and myself in the case
of 24HO and Trevor DeMont and others in the other two

The second favour is that she borrowed the first CD in
my copy of the Nuggets box from me, and things are so
bad between us I may not be able to get it back. Would
anyone on the list be willing to burn me a copy? I don't
have a CD burner , or much worth trading, but anything I
could do in return I would.

I don't think the '60s was more "about losing the line
between black music and white music" than e.g. the '40s
was. During the Swing Era many of the most popular bands
such as Basie's, Goodman's, Ellington's, Hampton's,
Herman's, Barnet's, Carter's, Shaw's, and the Jazz At
The Philharmonic touring ensemble all played in much the
_same_ style, "swing"-style jazz, the most popular music
style among the young at that time. (And every band I
mentioned there was integrated, e.g. Earl Warren played
in Basie's band, Sid Catlett in Goodman's band, Herbie
Fields in Hampton's band, and Roy Eldridge in Shaw's

I also don't agree at all that vaudeville was about
keeping black influences out. Black vaudeville was a
huge tradition that is well documented on record, and
there was much musical interaction among black and
white vaudevillians. Mamie Smith is an example of a
vaudevillian who was black and sold a ton of records.
Rudy Vallee is remembered as a progressive because of
the large number of black vaudevillians, such as Slim
Gaillard, Slam Stewart, and Buck Washington, whom he
booked for his radio show, at a time when segregated
radio was accepted by many people (but typically not by
musicians, who were more interested in music than skin
color). Expressions like "vo-de-oh-doh" are, of course,
examples of scat singing, a style that was popular among
both hip black and hip white singers in the '20s, such
as Frankie Jaxon and Cliff Edwards. Most of the jug
bands that inspired John Sebastian's music were black.
