Greetings, Goffin/King fan Mike C. on "GOIN' BACK: THE SONGS OF GOFFIN & KING" (Sequel, NEMCD 376): > Please Mick and friends, compile another. I'll take a > compilation of "tongue in cheek" cover versions over the > originals any day of the week. Hello Mike C. and all Goffin/King fans out there. Sorry, it's most unlikely that Sanctuary Records (a/k/a Sequel/Castle) will release another volume of Goffin/King songs. In order to make a profit, they have to utilise material they own, such as the old UK Pye and Immediate catalogues. A second volume would entail licensing tracks >from other sources. This added expense would eat into any possible profit. However, they are planning a compilation entitled "Wallpaper Of Sound" featuring cover versions of Phil Spector-produced originals. It's possible that this will include further Goffin/King compositions. However, have you seen the CD "ON BROADWAY: HIT SONGS AND RARIRIES FROM THE BRILL BUILDING ERA" (Westside WESD 216)?. This is a 50 track double CD of songs written by Carole King & Gerry Goffin, Cynthia Weil & Barry Mann and Ellie Greenwich & Jeff Barry. Goffin and/or King treasures by the Palisades, Henry Alston and the James Boys are included alongside more famous names. Bob Thomas at BIM BAM RECORDS can supply these CDs. Write for their catalogue: Chalfont House, Botley Road, Horton Heath, Eastleigh, Hants SO50 7DN, UK. Website: www.bim-bam.com Bim Bam specialise in oldies CDs. They just supplied me with the new CD by THE PIXIES THREE, but more on that another time.

She is now the Parks Commissioner for > the state of New York. ----------------------- Here's Bernadette's early discography: I Knew You When/It's Almost Tomorrow (Gold Coast 61-22) When You're Dancin' With Me/Crazy Yogi (Gold Coast 6134) When You're Dancin' With Me/Crazy Yogi (Beach 1001) Class Ring/Gimme Gimme (Beach 1002) Set Me Free/Don't Count Your Dreams (Beach 1003) My Babe/Small Talk (Beach 1004) The Slosh/Silver Platter (Beach 5) Plus an album on Gold Coast 61-8. Her following releases used her full name (Bernadette Castro). I know of three 45s: Tell Him For Me/They Don't Understand (P.P.X. 719) His Lips Get In The Way/Sports Car Sally (Colpix 747) A Girl In Love Forgives/Get Rid Of Him (Colpix 759) There is a world of difference between the early "Bernadette" records and her Colpix 45s. Without the group backing, her voice was actually quite thin, and a lot of her early success in Miami can be linked to her father's furniture company, and how much money in advertising he poured into local radio stations. The Colpix singles are tremendous, though, and deserved to be huge hits.

Quite a week eh?

Power to the People Revolution (No Organ) Give Peace a Chance 10AM-11AM - Rarities, outakes, and World Premiers Some songs are so strong that they work as a perfect soundtrack to an event, even though they were written in another time about something completely different. I will never forget sitting in my record store in WAYNE, New Jersey listening to WNEW FM and hearing DJ Scott Muni playing "Jungleland" right after he heard the newz of John Lennon's death, and I remember we all thought that Bruce had died, because of the long silence after the song finished$B?(B. Certain songs are like that... Here are a few other songs I feel somehow pertain to the events of the past week A Day in The Life/ MONO Getting Better /MONO Across the Universe / ORIG. WORLD PREMIER OF PAUL McCARTNEY 'S DRIVING RAIN LP!!! Paul McCartney - From a Lover to a Friend Paul McCartney - Yvonne Paul McCartney - Driving Rain George Harrison - All Things Must Pass 11AM-12 Noon - LISTENER REQUEST HOUR INCLUDED: IMAGINE THE LONG AND WINDING ROAD BIRTHDAY FOOL ON THE HILL LET IT BE HOLD ON STARTING OVER --------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------- End
