    I once emailed somebody at M&M about those bonus tracks. He 
    told me who did the "dream" song, but I didn't retain the 
    information--he probably just named the credited artist, and 
    I didn't relate it to anybody I knew of, like Zekley.
    The mystery "Our Day Will Come" is from the Roger Nichols 
    Small Circle of Friends LP on A&M, which is revered in 
    Japan. And the bonus track on the Melody Goes On volume 2 is 
    by Shiloh Morning.

    On the Beach Boys page someone mentioned that Brian Wilson 
    collaborator Andy Paley has been producing "a fake Shangri-
    La's record for some 1960's period film."
    Not too informative, but it sounds intriguing.  Anyone know 
    any more about this?

    Since Jack Madani posted about the Flowerpot Men some time 
    ago, I have become a big fan. I just bought a new release 
    of the Flowerpot Men with has 6 unreleased bonus tracks. 
    This is very, very good music from the days of superb 
    craftsmanship, production and discipline, as evidenced by the 
    "big sound" and perfect harmonies (countless hours of 
    rehearsing which I'm not sure happens so much in the years 
    since that time). Of interest, in the song lineup Carter 
    and Shakespeare were credited with some of the songwriting. 
    Yet, in the liner notes John Carter's name is followed by 
    John Shakespeare's name bracketed in parenthesis. Are these 
    men one in the same? 
    I also bought the First Class CD to see if these boys did 
    any other music on par with the flawless "Beach Baby". This 
    song is a true gem, I listen to it often on my quality car 
    stereo with the volume high. % minutes of musical ecstasy 
    (please don't kick me off this list!!) At first listen 
    there seem to be several dated clinkers on this CD, but also 
    a few nice songs as well. I always thought that Ken Lewis 
    cowrote Beach Baby with Carter, but apparently not ? -- they 
    hadn't worked together in some time by that point (I think).

    I don't know if this is old news or not, but a real good 
    article on the Zombies box set and on the upcoming release 
    of  Odyssey and Oracle in both stereo and mono on the same 
    cd and also on the possible release of Colin Blunstone's 
    "Neil MacArthur" tracks appeared today in the Sunday 
    Philadelphia Inquirer. You can find the article at: http://

    In a recent posting by (now we know why he's called) Doc 
    Rock regarding his book Liberty Records, he mentions 
    Patience & Prudence. Dying to get the discography in the 
    book, but in the meantime, does anyone have a comprehensive 
    P&P collection? I would love to discuss a dub trade or if 
    anyone could help fill out my P&P collection otherwise 
    please Email off-list. Thanks!
    Doc also recommended a Girl Group Fanzine called Cha Cha  
    Charming. It must be named after the Ellie Gaye record. Doc 
    mentions it includes an interview with Kay McCool of his 
    favorite GG, the Pixies Three. Cool. I adore their "442 
    Glenwood Avenue." But tell us Doc, why your favorite? 
    I read the Frank Sinatra, Jr. kidnapping piece Marie posted 
    about and found it intriguing. How did Dean escape 
    unscathed? Bizarre...
    Birdy-Num Num wrote he's been locked in the recording studio 
    for months. . .the album is finally  finished...
    Well, from what I've heard, it's good. It's very good.
