Greetings,

And so Mike Rashlow has filled up his tank with gas and
motored off into the blue yonder in search of sunnier
weather.  It looks as though we'll not hear from him
again until he finds a convenient landline to hook up to.
Well, I'm missing him already!

"Spring Fever" was something of a hit here in Australia,
in '66.  Because of that it appears on one of Glenn A.
Baker's "Hard To Get Hits" CDs, collections of songs that
were hits in Oz but may've been overlooked elsewhere.

Hi Patrick,

That's a tough one to find.

However, Collectors Choice Music released a new Sunshine
Company compilation a few days ago.

Check it out at http://www.ccmusic.com/item.cfm?itemid=CCM02492


Best,
Matthew

Subject: Gary Usher and Joanie Sommers

Working with Joanie Sommers was the first thing Gary did
when he arrived at Columbia Records in late 1966.  He
finished up two songs, It Doesn't Matter Anymore and
Take A Broken Heart (both started by Bob Mersey) that
wound up being Joanie's last single at Columbia.  As
Usher states in Stephen J McParland's biography, "it was
just a matter of finishing off what he [Bob] had already
started."  The single was released on Columbia 4-43950
in December 1966.

Hi Mike,

That would be Joey Levine, who is probably best known as
the lead singer of The Ohio Express hits.

See 
http://www.wfmu.org/LCD/22/bubblegum.html


for a great Levine interview.

Thanks everyone for all the interesting "S.O.S." trivia. 
Can anyone tell me more about Sol Trimachi?  I know he
also wrote "123 Red Light" for the 1910 Fruitgum Company,
but that's about it.

Christine Quaite charted in US with "Tell me mama" in 1964.
World Artist 1022 written by Gerry Granahan and with Frank
Barber's Orc. Christine was born i England i 1950, but
that's the only info I have. I got "Tell me mama" on a
japanese CD of One hit wonders. "Your nose is gonna grow"
can be found on Marginal:Girls girls girls vol 15. Theme

gonna grow" Jan K

The song she sang in The Lively Set, "If You Love Him"
has 2 versions. The soundtrack on Decca, and the WB 45
version.  They are quite different.  Joanie is still very
much around, although she is more into jazz and lounge
music than her teen girlgroup sound. Any of you who are
interested in Joanie, feel free to visit the little
fansite that I set up to honor her.
