Hi Andy,

Will BBC Radio 4 actually be BROADCASTING their

the Internet.

Great sounds, all, but I'll take their Brian Wilson
Produced 45 "I Do" over anything else they ever
did......a total masterpiece of '60s pop. Get the out of
print CD on ERA records, its well worth it. If you can't
find it, give Mikey a call and I'll set you up!!

Hi Dan

The song you asked for is "Teenage has-been" released in
1962 and wiritten by Mann and Weil with a little help
>from Gerry Goffin.

The B side was Bless you a song he wrote with Cynthia
Weil and that Tony Orlando had recorded in 1961.

The worst music this side of heaven???  Those Buddah
records were pop masterpieces, and the b-sides were
always fun nonsense.  "Quick Joey Small" is the
Bethoven's 9th of Bubble Gum music!

A friend of mine actually filmed a documentary on The
Ohio Express which includes his interviews of the
original members.
