Jerry Riopell(e) did in fact produce the song...And,
there's only one version.

Don't believe everything you see on one of Spector's
labels - Example: The original release of "Unchained
Melody" by the Righteous Brothers does not credit Phil as
producer. Why? 'Cuz originally Spector was pushing the
other side of Philles 129, "Hung On You," and "Melody"
was the "throw-away" B-side...When DJs flipped the
platter over & started playing the other side, Spector
had to move fast & get his name on it as producer, when,
in fact, Bill Medley produced it. There are 2 different
Philles releases of the record...One has Spector as
producer of "Hung" only, the other has him producer of
"Unchained"...

I had this point illustrated on my website, with the
factual backing of friends Jack Fitzpatrick & Peter
Richmond ( both of whom I used for verification purposes),
but Mark Ribowsky vehemently discounted this "hypothesis,"
we argued the point in several emails, and I eventually
pulled that section off the site just to put an end to
the hassle (altho' he never discounted Jack & Peter's
contention that Spector did not do "Unchained").

Look for this installment of the "Great Streets" series
on your local PBS Tv outlet !

Randy Newman cruises Sunset Blvd. in a muscle car, for
a very entertaining history of the Blvd....and you
don't have to be American or have been there, to enjoy
it !!!

Subject: Paper Dolls

Hi Everyone,

I'm not sure if this has been discussed yet, but
Spectropoppers should definitely consider picking up the
new compilation on Sanctuary Records by The Paper Dolls,
called Paper Dolls House-The Anthology.  The Paper Dolls
had a #11 hit in the UK in 1968 with "Something Here In
My Heart (Keeps A-Tellin' Me No), and were a group sort
of masterminded by the writing team of Macauley/McLeod
(of "Baby, Now That I Found You" fame).  Theeir sound is
very much like Lesley Gore meets a very bright, blue eyed
Motown.  The CD contains a stereo mix of their very rare
LP, along with mono mixes of several of the singles and
other a's and b's.  Definitely essential for every girl
group fan!  I also received a Macauley/McLeod 2 CD
compilation on Sanctuary that I haven't heard yet.  I'll
report on that one as soon as I hear it.

Jerry Riopelle produced "Home Of The Brave," and Nick
De Caro arranged, according to the label credits on my
original copy.  The scuttlebutt is that Phil did record
Ronnie Spector on a version of this song, but it has
never been released.

Dear Bill,

I love, especially, the songs we thought we knew...but
>from, what are called "the original artists"..."Don't
Bring Me Down"...you get to hear all of the words...all
of the words, from the man who wrote the song. It's
almost like hearing the demo of it, that he made to sell
it! It's a very magical experience. 

I know I have another Japanese CD issue that includes
some of the songs from this release...let me dig it out !!!

"Voodoo" by Josie and The Pussycats is not to be
overlooked!  Patrice Holloway kicks ass on vocals.

Makes perfect sense to me, Diane.  Special Agent Patrick
has crumbs in his Cookie jar. You live and learn. 
Sometimes it's unbearable taking the long walk home. 
Don't worry baby.  You go on. And besides, they're just
jealous of he.
