Hope this doesn't fall outside your collective expertise.
They were called "David and Jonathan".  The record I'm
looking at was produced by George Martin. It's sort of
like Chad and Jeremy crossed with the Righteous Brothers.

But here's my question.  Supposedly David's name is
David Roger Greenway. Supposedly Jonathan's name is
Jonathan Roger Cook. 

I can't remember who they are exactly or where I know
their names from but aren't Roger Greenway and Roger
Cook some kind of producing or writing team? Anyone?

Put those Hula Hoops down and pay attention - it's
"Kleine Treue Nachtigall".  BTW, just got "Where The
Girls Are" Vol. 4 today - nice job. Good to get fab
things like Shirley Matthews' "Big Town Boy", "Wise Guys",
Goodnight Kisses' "If He Kissed Me" and Tamiko's
"Rhapsody" on CD at last. Back to your savouries, then......

Hi Everyone,

I have a DJ copy of the Summer's Children 45 "Milk And
Honey" b/w "Too Young To Marry" up on eBay at

As many of you know, this group featured Curt Boettcher,
Michele O'Malley, and Lee Mallory, all members of The
Ballroom, and of course we all know about Curt's bands
Sagittarius and The Millennium!

Curt sang lead on both sides of this record, and wrote
the a-side.  I must admit the only reason I've put this
45 up on eBay is that both sides are on the upcoming
three disc Ballroom/Millennium package on Sundazed, but
if you're a Boettcher collector who has to have
everything, and haven't been able to find this one,'s available!!
Spectropop Rules!!!!!
Take Care,
David Bash

That sounds pretty dreadful, the 90s thing Jamie.

What I remember about cutting Soul & Inspiration is that
we did it at Western "1"...I tho't, I could be wrong. 
We did all the Phil Spector stuff at Gold Star.  And yes,
you're probably right, I don't remember Phil being there,
and it was the usual crowd of same studio musicians
(except that it was Earl Palmer on most of the hits that
Phil cut I tho't, and this definitely had Hal Blaine on
the this one).  I tho't the recording was very good and
sort of the Spector sounds and styles they were shooting

To me it was poignant that I was the the only bass
player as Phil usually used Ray Pohlman on bass on his
dates and I usually played guitar except was on bass on
"River Deep Mountain High"., I don't
remember quite who was in the booth but know Medley was
there, etc., it felt like a Phil Spector date.

Was nice to see Bill Medley at the NAMM Trade Show in
2000 with his daughter who is playing bass also, enjoyed
chatting with them.  Sorry I can't remember more.

Carol Kaye

PS.  Will have my interview on my site
very soon....with Chuck Kelley's credit also.
