I love the song too, I like Lorraine's version better,
it's much more upbeat and "stompier" than the original.
Like a lot of great UK girls records it never got released
in the USA.

I first heard the original Shelly Fabares version about 15
years ago when I discovered a Vee Jay Promo copy in a
radio station record library in Claremore Oklahoma. The 45
was in great shape and I even gave it a spin on the air
(during a "Solid Gold Weekend" double play with "Johnny
Angel"). I later got fired from the station after new
owners took over and now I kick myself for not swiping it!
:-) (but I did make a cassette copy and it's on Rhino's
"Best Of")

Word up! There are apparently three women traveling with
profit taking ventures, each claiming to be "Mary Wilson",
the Supreme with a story to tell...This apparently is
the age of profiteering from dubious autobiographies
...or at least the dawn of my awareness of the phenomena..

JB/thinking of becoming PJ Proby

[Ed. note: On April 26, 2001 Associated Press reported
that Mary Wilson testified before lawmakers in support
of a bill that would penalize copycat groups and their
promoters for trying to trade on the originals. The AP
news story said Wilson, 57, was in Boston performing in
"Leader of the Pack," a musical at the Shubert Theater.]

What is the story with "twinn Connection"?

Are they actually twins?  I only know the track "foolin
around". Do they have much of a catalogue, and if so are
the records impossibly hard to find?.

If anyone has any info...

Hey gang, that really WAS Mary Wilson of the Supremes in
the Boston stage show of "Leader of the Pack".  And she
was brilliant singing those Greenwich-Barry tunes.  I
initially thought that she was an odd choice for the role
because I associate her totally with the Motown sound of
the '60's, not the Wall Of Sound.  Sweet person she is.

But I had a bigger surprise tonight.  I went to a
screening of a documentary about the Brill Building
groups and songwriters of the mid'60's.  Guess who was
standing in front of me waiting to get in-- MARY WEISS of
the Shangri-Las!!  How did I recognize her--she still had
the blonde hair parted on the side!!!!  She was a trip!! 
Now that's the real "Leader Of the Pack".  Oh, and for
those of you who see "Shangri-Las" that perform
today--it's non of the originals  (Maryann and Margie
have passed away, and Mary and Betty do not perform). 
And that's called------saaaaad.......  Tony
