    So Doc are you saying that the Everly's chart reign was already
    over before the Brit. Invasion started? One thing you can't 
    deny is that their biggest post-Beatles record "Gone, Gone, 
    Gone" sounded like it was influenced by what was happening 
    across the pond. BTW my favorite song by the Everlys is the 
    post invasion "Bowling Green".

    I just received a copy of Back to the Girl Zone on Marginal 
    Records.
    
    What a good collection of obscure girl group Spector sounds. I 
    particularly like Shirley Matthews' "Big Town Boy" and a 
    Goffin-King composition by the Three Bells called "Softly in 
    the Night".
    
    The Wall of Sound is still standing...at least here in Memphis!

     like, RG?

    I haven't played this single in 20 or more years so I couldn't 
    tell you. I'll give it a listen tonight.
    
    Another Spectorish single was Bobby Darin's "We Didn't Ask To 
    Be Brought Here."

    That song reminds me a lot of the direction that Paul Revere & 
    The Raiders took on songs like "Cinderella Sunshine", "Mr. Sun,
    Mr. Moon" and "Don't Take It So Hard".

    Hi Dave,
    
    "Spanish Wine" was written by a gentleman named Chris White 
    (not the member of the Zombies) who, in my opinion, is one of 
    the most talented purveyors of the Beach Boys sound there ever 
    was. In 1976 Chris released an album on the UK label Charisma 
    called "Mouth Music", which is full of White penned Beach Boys 
    influenced tunes that are absolutely beautiful and have 
    dizzying harmonies, including his version of "Spanish Wine", 
    which made the UK top 50 that year. "Mouth Music" was White's 
    lone release, but in the mid 80s he advertised a cassette in 
    California Music magazine, which contained a bunch of outtakes 
    from the late 60s to the late 70s. The cassette was called "
    Circuits And Bumps", and is as good as his album, featuring a 
    song called "Rapscallion" which is among the most wonderful 
    Beach Boys influenced songs one could imagine, full of soft 
    harmonies and longing.
    
    After a long layoff from doing music, Chris re-emerged in 1991 
    with a band he formed with his brother and friends called The 
    Surfonics. The Surfonics self- released a cassette of original 
    gems that harkened back strongly to the early Beach Boys period
    . I know several people on this list would really love this 
    tape!
    
    These days Chris is on the staff of Stomp! magazine, a fanzine 
    devoted completely to the Beach Boys. I don't have one handy or
    I'd post the address, but if you have any questions for Chris 
    about his music or Stomp, you can e- mail him at . 
    I'm sure he'd be glad to hear from you, and please
    tell him David Bash sent you!

    To get an idea of just what the Beatles did to American radio, go to
    my website, and click on the link to WABC surveys. Look at the one for
    1964. Out of 29 songs charted, six were Beatles songs, and three were
    Dave Clark Five.
    
    Now, compare the KLIF survey under the link A Very Interesting Survey
    which lists "all Beatles records" at #1A. This is what the charts
    might have looked like had there been no Beatles.

    Jack, you know as well as anybody that if you want to discuss 
    the Beatles, you have to go over to the Pet Sounds list;-).

    i must concur...yes, i love the beatles, *revolver* is one of 
    my desert island essentials, blah blah blah...but i don't like 
    to dissect every facet of their career...heck, i don't even get
    fanatical in that sense about any artist...sure, i like to swap 
    trivia, but i don't wish to get swept up in some great stereo 
    vs. mono mix debate (although i too would like to see the 
    original mono mixes of their albums [the ones with original 
    mono mixes to begin with] on legitimate cd one day) or obsess 
    on which bass guitar paul used on which tracks, etc....in short, 
    if i want to discuss the beatles at great length, i'll go to 
    the pet sounds list... ;)
    
    jeff [professor madani can back me up on that]
    
    p.s. and i still prefer *magical mystery tour* to *sgt. 
    pepper*! nyaah!!!
