The on-line music store Music For A Song has among its catalog of cutouts: The Complete Buddah Chart Singles Vols 1 & 2 The Complete Kama Sutra Singles Vols 1 & 2 for a pretty reasonable $3.77 each. Each volume has some obscurities (Five Stairsteps & Cubie, the Vacels) among the more familiar (Lovin' Spoonful, Ohio Express). I haven't played 'em yet but it sounds like a good deal. They also have the Brill Building compilation for $12.77 but it's on cassette. I ordered that too, but haven't got it yet. Wish it was the CD.

I was perusing the booklet (is that what our UK friends call an "inlay"?) for Petula Clark's "The Pye Years Volume 1" (RPM issue). The disc holds two complete albums, the second of which is called "These Are My Songs." If I remember it right, the booklet says that all of this album was recorded in LA, produced by Sonny Burke. So it'll probably have that Strangers In The Night, Everybody Loves Somebody Sometime sort of vibe. Say, I was watching the opening portion of Austin Powers (didn't finish it, though, because I hadda put my three- year-old boy to bed), and I just howled out loud in appreciation over the Swinging London sequence. When that policeman breaks into the frug, I just about wet myself. egad, this is my favorite music mailing list. ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Jack Madani - Princeton Day School, The Great Road, Princeton, NJ 08540 Jack_MadXXX@XXXXXX2.nj.us "It is when the gods hate a man with uncommon abhorrence that they drive him into the profession of a schoolmaster." --Seneca, 64 A.D. ------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---[ archived by Spectropop - 04 /1/98 - 02 :33:00 AM ]--- Subject: Re: Shakespeare (and I don't mean Bill!)

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). Dave Mirich>> Hi Dave, Actually, the "Shakepeare" you refer to, if I'm not mistaken, is John Carter's wife Gillian Shakespeare. She co-wrote several Flower Pot Men songs, as well as several First Class songs such as "Beach Baby" and "Too Many Golden Oldies". I would highly recommend that you purchase "Love Grows (Where My Rosemary Goes)", the compilation of Tony Burrows sung material available on Varese Sarabande records. You'd love it! -- Spectropop Rules!!!!!
