Leclerc, XXX@XXXXXXron.ca To: Spectropop List, spectroXXX@XXXXXXies.com I was browsing at the used cd/vinyl shop and what did I find? A Claudine Longet album, called, "We've only just begun". I recall Claudine from that funny movie, "The Party", where she befriended a clumsy and hilarious Peter Sellers. I didnt know she had recorded albums, so, can anyone tell me if there are others available? I really enjoy that one, songs like "Cry me a river", "Close to you (they long to be)", are done in a delicate way, very refreshing. "Ain't no mountain high enough" is done with French lyrics, courtesy of Ms Longet. Now, if only there were liners as for the date and musicians, that would top it all. Any infos on Claudine would be welcome, Thanks, Marie ---[ archived by Spectropop - 04 /17/98 - 12:59:24 AM ]--- Subject: Re: All Strung Out Sent: 4/16/98 4:19 AM Received: 4/16/98 6:35 AM From: BashPop, BashXXX@XXXXXXm To: Spectropop List, spectroXXX@XXXXXXies.com << Subject: Re: All Strung Out From: Jamie LePage, le_page_XXX@XXXXXXies.com Bobby Lloyd wrote: >Nino Tempo and April Stevens album "All Strung Out". >It's one of my all-time favorite records!

It is cut 3 on disk 2 on the 2 CD set. ---[ archived by Spectropop - 04 /18/98 - 02 :59:24 AM ]--- Subject: Re: Rodney and the Kessels Sent: 4/17/98 12:58 AM Received: 4/16/98 6:35 AM From: le_page_XXX@XXXXXXies.com To: Spectropop List, spectroXXX@XXXXXXies.com Brad wrote: >Hey, all.

Wow! That brings back memories. Now I recall the single you mentioned and Blondie/Honeys involvement, but the side I was referring to was "Rodney on the ROQ." Now I can't remember whether this was the B-Side to Little GTO or not. >1.

I remember Rodney playing the Debbie Harry version on his show, but the Euro Bomp release escapes me. I seem to recall Rodney saying it couldn't be released due to clearance problems. >2.

All of the tracks are Kessel Bros. productions! >The fine print on the jacket says that Martian Records was >"A Division of Dan Kessel/David Kessel International." Somewhere I have the Martians 45, but I don't remember the other side. The album release date is interesting, because most of those tracks are from the late 70's, I believe. By 1984, LA was leaning toward the hair band thing with Guns N Roses just starting to make a buzz. That implies the '84 album was all the stuff the Kessels had in the can from their Phil bodyguard days during the latter half of the 70's, so I guess a lot or most of that album was recorded at the Hollywood Blvd. studio I mentioned. I love that "A Division of..." credit, btw. Just like Uncle Phil. >Even Harvey Kubernik makes an appearance playing percussion >on one track. There you go! Harvey Kubernik - Now THAT'S nostalgia! I guess a Kessels/Rodney album would have to have Harvey credited for something. :-) I remember a couple of Sunday-before-X'mas Rodney shows at the old KROQ studios in Pasadena. Harvey was there, David and Dan too, and of course Rodney, spinning obscure Spector sides. Harvey had, if memory serves, Things Are Changing and the Bonnie Jo Mason (Cher) single "Ringo, I Love You." That was the first time I ever heard those sides. I think I had Let's Dance (the Screw) and maybe "Lover's Wonderland" by the Sugar Plums. Now, a question for you, Brad. Do you agree that Fowley's track off _74/79_ sounds nothing like Phil circa A Woman's Story / Lennon's R&R album, yet has much in common with the production values of Rodney Bingenheimer presents All Year Party, Volume One? Sorry for the diversion, all; thanks for the memory jog, Brad. We now return you to your regularly scheduled decade... -- le_page_XXX@XXXXXXies.com RodeoDrive/5030 ---[ archived by Spectropop - 04 /17/98 - 12:59:24 AM ]--- Subject: Re: Bacharach Sent: 4/16/98 12:55 PM Received: 4/17/98 12:23 AM From: David Feldman, feldXXX@XXXXXXerables.com To: Spectropop List, spectroXXX@XXXXXXies.com I speaketh too soon. At the end of the program, Bacharach gave a heartfelt thank-you to Hal David, and mentioned "Alfie" as a great lyric. I have to agree. What I love about David is his directness, his lack of gimmicks, and his economy with words, even with syllables. Listen to "Walk On By." Is there a word in the lyric that is longer than two syllables? The succession of one- syllable words: "If you see me walking on the street, And I start to cry, Each time we meet, Walk on by..." give the song its movement, reinforcing the title. Just brilliant stuff. David's credo seems to be: Never use a five-syllable word when a one-syllable word will do. Never use a metaphor when a naked expresion of emotion will do. Great stuff.
