Bob:  

Do you mean another BrillTone Records disc?  Shriek, this boy is 
messing up my mind!  Does Carole or Ellie sing the chicken song?
Always wondered if Carole K. and Ellie G. ever crossed paths 
musically other than each having a song on the side of a 45.  
This is great news.  Thanks.

Regarding the flip to Cher's "A Woman's Story", in UK it
was "Baby I Love You" on Phil Spector 2010013. I have both
songs on an old cassette "Phil Spector 74/79" which also
includes a duet between Cher and Nilsson: "A Love Like
Yours (Don't Come Knocking Every Day)". The cassette
includes songs by Darlene Love, Dion, Jerri Bo Keno and
Kim Fowley.

Was there an LP too?

Dunno about anyone else, but I would give my eyeteeth for
someone to look O right in the eye and say "Well, I think
it feels like passing a muskmelon through your urethra.
How does it feel to make billions of dollars telling other
people what to think?"

Many thanks for the Gene Pitney recommendations.  My
friend and I got our tickets last night, and it was close
to sold out, so this might be interesting.  Some
permutation of the Angels is the middle act -- it's being
sponsored by the actually-really-quite-good oldies station
in town, so hopefully there'll be at least one original
member.  Review to follow.

Hi Guy,

Jeez Louise, we'd love to reissue "A Christmas Present ...
and Past," but it's already been licensed to Mark
Lindsay and available -- autographed, no less -- from
his Website 
(http://www.marklindsay.com). 
And, hey, Paul Revere & The Raiders fans! If you're
anywhere near the East Coast of the U.S.A., be sure to
catch Mark with a stomping group of all-star
garage-rockers at Cavestomp in Brooklyn, New York,
November 4th!

We did those Harper's Bizarre recordings in Hollywood
studios, I forget where now.  But do agree with you that
it was good music.

This being my first entry into Spectropop and
all..but didn't Snuff also produce a lot of Cher's
early stuff like "Half Breed"....let me know if I've
missed the mark.

I am almost sure he was some kind of staff producer
at Kapp.

I must agree with Mick. 

For the short time she lived with us (my brothers & I and
our father Phil) in 72 maybe 73, I thought she and her
mother were two of the nicest people and always wanting
to help others.  I thought she was a good influence on me
despite the problems she was going through with our
father.

Though she may have been considered my step-mother (by
some), I never had a problem with her appearance either.
Then or now.

Bust your buns.

I don't understand what it means, but that's what
they're singing. You can hear it more clearly on the
remake by Dean Torrence and Mike Love on the Legendary
Masked Surfers album...

Dunno for sure, but it sounds like "Bust your buns" to me.

Paul--I assume you are serious, so here goes:  "bust your
buns"...Perhaps the lad in the ditty was boarding his way
home from the local fish and chips establishment with a
bag of hot cross buns, hot dog buns, or hamburger buns. 

A good fall would certainly bust the heck out of those
buns, even if they were wrapped well.  I don't dare to
think that Jan and/or Dean would be singing about the
other type of buns some of you may be daring enough to
imagine--we are of course talking about a song from the
1960's.  Anyhow Paul, that's the story I told my mother
when she asked me the same question.

Hate to say it, but the words are "bust your buns."  

Pretty classy, eh?

"Bust your buns" ... as in fanny, rump, keister, butt, 
booty, etc.

Paul Woods: re: Jan & Dean, isn't the lyric "Bust your
buns"?

actually look like something."

Ah, the magic of something new, before it gets
formulaic.

BTW, Tradewinds' "Catch Me In The Meadow" was also a 45!
Very pretty....

Stephane, the site

remarkable; so many artists I'd forgotten about! Thank

No they are clearly singing "Bust Your Buns"...a American
term for the buttocks, behind, booty, can, and of course
the @SS. 

If you have ever "wiped out" while attempting to ride a
skateboard and fell flat on your butt (as a teenager) you
know what I mean.

(waiting for someone to ask about submarine races)
