Composed by Jimmy Ryan, it is a Critters original. T&G is one of the top harmony pop LPs of all time (at least in my view, better than the Yellow Balloon), and has that special Enoch Light enhanced stereo sound too. ---[ archived by Spectropop - 04 /3/98 - 12:57:26 AM ]--- Subject: Francoise, Serge and Petula Sent: 4/2/98 4:05 AM Received: 4/2/98 11:07 PM From: Marie-J. Leclerc, XXX@XXXXXXron.ca To: Spectropop List, spectroXXX@XXXXXXies.com I have been wondering this before and Spectropop is the perfect place to ask my questions. Did Francoise Hardy ever have a "hit" in the US? She was a big star in Europe in the sixties and early seventies (she is still recording very good albums as for now), had a big succes here too in Quebec with "Comment te dire adieu" ("It hurts to say goodbye") and many more songs, she appeared in some movies too, I can think of "Grand prix" and "What's new pussycat". (One musician that can be found on Francoise albums is Mick Jones of Foreigner. You might recognize him on Johnny Haliday albums too, he was a regular session guitarist at the time.) "Comment te dire adieu" was co-written by no one else but another French icon, Serge Gainsbourg. Which brings me to my second question: except for the now infamous "Je t'aime moi non plus", was Serge "known" in the US too? His work is a little treasure, it goes much beyond that "Je t'aime" song that was more a cheek in tongue essay that did well. BTW, the first version was done with Brigitte Bardot singing with Serge but never was released till the late eighties, but the one that officially came out with Jane Birkin was definitely much better. Just before going, I don't recall "No go showboat" by Petula, but I do recall a very good version of "This is my song" who became "C'est ma chanson , and once again it was a hit here. Did I dream it or Petula also recorded the Melanie song "Look what they done to my song" ("Ils ont change ma chanson")? I can swear I heard that long ago. Thanks for any infos and take care all, Marie ---[ archived by Spectropop - 04 /3/98 - 12:57:26 AM ]--- Subject: Re: brill building comp Sent: 4/1/98 10:50 AM Received: 4/2/98 3:42 AM From: KingoGrief, KingoGrXXX@XXXXXXm To: Spectropop List, spectroXXX@XXXXXXies.com In a message dated 98-03-31 12:41:00 EST, you write: << They also have the Brill Building compilation for $12.77 but it's on cassette.

DecalcoMania (THE club for fans of radio) has released a three tape set styled Decal On Tape #6, and subtitled "The Rock Jock Hall Of Fame." This project was produced by yours truly. It pays tribute to the 40 best DJs of all time, as selected by our membership a few years back. There are a few surprises, but all the guys you'd expect (Armstrong, Ingram, Steele, Morgan, Owens, et al) are represented. Included with the tapes is a bio booklet with photos and info, which was produced by Scott Wainwright. This is for anyone who enjoyed 60s style radio. It is now available for (I believe) $15.

Its called "Phil and Friends vol.1" On the cover, no Spector but a picture of Lennon !!."Made in Luxenburg" definitely not, its from Netherlands. Why I write this to the list is because of a single track ( nothing new for most of you I guess) called "Things Are Changing" by The Blossoms. its credited Spector/Wilson. In the booklet, which is pretty good, by the way, it's stated that Jay & The Americans and The Surpremes used the the same backing tracks on a album and a single. Its a extremely interesting CD with lot of rare tracks by Lennon, Darlene Love, Dion, Fowley etc. ---[ archived by Spectropop - 04 /3/98 - 08 :33:00 AM ]--- Subject: back to the Cookies Sent: 4/2/98 11:55 PM Received: 4/3/98 8:22 AM From: Jack Madani, Jack_MadXXX@XXXXXX2.nj.us To: Spectropop List, spectroXXX@XXXXXXies.com >As I clear out my mailbox I reread some old Spectropop >digests, and re-noticed this from Doc Rock: > >All of the Cookies' records ["Chains," Don't Say Nothin' Bad >About My Baby"] were originally written for Philadelphia >artists. ....Listen to "The Old Crowd" which became a Lesley >Gore LP cut.
