Toni Wine and Carol Bayer contributed the quirky "Problem Child" and there's a Chip Taylor track - "I'm Not Sure What I Wanna Do". There's also a Bacharach/David song I'd never heard of before - "It Dosen't Matter Anymore" - anyone know of any other recordings of this? Talking of Carol Bayer, does anyone know if it was her who co-wrote the Shadows Of Knight/American Breed classic "I'm Gonna Make You Mine"? The credits read (Bayer/Carr/D'Errico). What was the origin of this track? Finally, I'm not going to see Brian myself but could somebody shout out "Papa-Oom-Mow-Mow" for me?

What was the > origin of this track? According to BMI, "I'm Gonna Make You Mine" is credited to Carole Jill Bayer, William A. Carr, and Carl D'Errico. Carl co-wrote "It's My Life" with Roger Atkins, a hit for the Animals. BMI lists him as having written 59 published songs. But for the Animals record, no other hits. William A. Carr is Billy Carr. He is an ASCAP writer. In 1966, he wrote "Hold On Girl (Help Is On Its Way)" for the Monkees. His co-authors were Ben Raleigh and Jack Keller. (I found the sheet music in a Monkees songbook.) However, in the ASCAP database, the same song is credited to Jamie Carr, along with Raleigh and Keller. BMI lists 23 songs with the title "I'm Gonna Make You Mine"; Tony Romeo wrote the familiar one done by Lou Christie. --------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------- Message: 11 Date: Wed, 16 Jan 2002 12:04:20 EST From: Brian Chidester Subject: Moses Lake and Brian Wilson in London Jason, If you hear back anything from the people who put that sight up, let me know. I was the person who FOUND the Moses Lake about five years back. I found two members, each who had tapes. I tipped a few reissue companies on them, and made a proposal to do the research and liner notes. Nobody was interested in biting five years ago. But, they all knew where to get the tapes. That would really make me angry if someone swiped that out from under me. You know, I really only care that the stuff gets out there, because I'd make, what, at most $300 for a project that would take up a lot more time than is monetarily worth it. But, it is just the principle. I'd at least like to be involved or thanked in some way. Let me know, okay? Vis-a-vie Brian Wilson playing in London, all I can tell you is that there are going to be some major treats for you all. If the recent rehearsals are any indication! Don't miss it. Wish I could make the trip across the pond.

This month I interview Sam Phillips (next month Joel Dorn, etc.), but of much more interest to readers of this list---much more---is the fact that a lot of this month's issue is given over to Carole King. She is on the cover and inside there are more than forty pages of King content, including a complete songography. Record Collectors'---and not because I write for it---is (arguably) the best mass market music magazine in the world. Too bad it's in Japanese, which I cannot read OR write, and can barely speak. It is always useful to know what is being issued in Japan, which as most of you know is of a mind-boggling variety. This month RC's reviewers write about new releases from everyone from Henry Threadgill to the Pretty Things; Mabel Mercer to Teo Macero; Shocking Blue; the Best of Flip Records; Carpenters; Paul Williams, et al. Not at all like the record industry food chain US mags with coverage devoted almost exclusively to the latest in Kid Muzik, the Exploding Toilets, Tavist D, etc. I have written for everyone from Rolling Stone to the San Francisco Examiner. But this is the one magazine I'm truly proud to be a (small) part of. Ironically, I can't even read it. Of course, sometimes I just can't stand it anymore and throw myself on the mercy of one bi-lingual Japanese friend or another. When you see a lengthy article on Emmett Miller or collectors of 16" vitaphone discs, it's just too hard to resist This issue is indespensible for Carole King fans. And basically pretty useful for most of us US monolingual collectors. I used to buy it long before I worked for it, because of the illustrations and hardcore discographical information. If you are unable to find it on your nearest Nihongo newstand let me know and I will supply you with an ordering address.

With such firepower, one wonders why they didn't storm the Top 40 charts. And Carol Kaye: thank you for the background on Joe Osborn. One of the reasons his group is so outstanding is having first-person resources like you on it. And Mike Rashkow: actually, I do think we're a pretty intelligent bunch, now that you mention it! James Botticelli: from my just-located dusty copy of "HANG ON SLOOPY By THE McCOYS" [sic], Bang BLP-212: "Arranged & conducted by Bassett Hand. "Recording Engineers Eddie Smith, Gordy Clark & Stanley Weiss. "Produced by Bob Feldman, Jerry Goldstein & Richard Gottehrer for F. G. G. Productions." So FGG drove the project from the beginning. David Gordon: my favorite Illusion song - on Steed - is "Together," which sounds like an electric hootennany singalong wit' Lawn Guyland accents! It actually charted, too. Richard Williams writes: > somebody should do a compilation of records using fake > audience/party noises as an effect, e.g. the Miracles' > "I Gotta Dance (To Keep From Cryin')", Shirley Ellis's > "The Nitty Gritty" and the CODs' "Michael". Any > more? My favorite fake crowd is an instrumental from 1961: Armando Sciascia's "Tiger Twist." It came out in the US on KC Records, owned by Nat King Cole (!), and was an Italian big-band take on the twist with an auditorium-sized crowd providing the fake cheering. Among many DJ's, I remember Dan Ingram used it frequently as a dead-roll going up to network news on WABC New York. My favorite fake party: Swingin' Medallions' "Double Shot of My Baby's Love" - which inspired/fueled plenty of real parties (in my experience).... Hot new band alert: The Slow Slushy Boys (really!), "Make Mine Slushy," Wildebeest http://wildebeest.com. Surf guitar, 60's Farfisa-style organ, rockin' drums & bass, crisp production, all from a French band who sings in English - mostly! Prime Spectropop track: "Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah" in the Bob B. Soxx arrangement, sung in French - not quite a wall of sound, more like a "fence of sound" - but it works. My favorite track is an exquisite cover of an old (unknown to me) 5 Royales song, "Take Me With You," that sounds like an 1962 soft-pop 45! They also cover the Ikettes' "I'm Blue." This hasn't been out of the CD player since it arrived two days ago. (Europeans: most of the CD is on Larsen Recordz [France]; "Zip" is on Butterfly [Spain].)

Hopefully our British Brethren can attest to the fine cover version by Jimmy James & The Vagabonds on Atco.

Kenny produced a 1969 album in the UK for Clodagh Rodgers - Midnight Clodagh - sung on some of the tracks and wrote most of them, including a couple of UK hits, Biljo and Goodnight Midnight. Probably not Martin's cup of tea but she did also sing a nice Jackie DeShannon song on the album....

Posted to the Spectropop Bulletin Board by Ronnie Allen on Mon, 14 Jan 2002 11:06:27 ------------------------------------------------------ One of my all-time records from the 60s or, for that matter, ANY decade is the 1961 hit "Triangle," written and recorded by Janie Grant. On December 6th of last year I had the privilege and pleasure of doing a one-hour radio interview with Janie. It was her first media interview in more than 38 years!!! My interview show originated on radio station WBCB-AM-1490 based in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. Its signal is also heard on the Internet, accessible through their website at www.wbcb1490.com. I'm happy to say that I got a tremendous response to the show. I discovered that there are MANY MANY Janie Grant fans out all over the country and all over the WORLD who appreciate her recordings as much as I do. Adding to the mystique was the fact that prior to agreeing to do the interview show with me Janie Grant had pretty much been a disappearing act for close to 40 years! There was NOTHING in the media about her whereabouts and when she was mentioned at all it was generally in the simple context of "She was the girl who sang 'Triangle.'" Occasionally someone would mention her other two chart hits, "Romeo" and "That Greasy Kid Stuff." Because of the tremendous response to the original December 6th broadcast I am pleased to announce that I will be rebroadcasting my entire one-hour Janie Grant interview which originally aired on Thursday, December 6th, 2001. Here are the details: Rebroadcast Date: Thursday, January 17th, 2002 Rebroadcast Time: 9:00 PM E.S.T. Originating station: WBCB-1490-AM (Bucks County, PA) Internet Access: www.wbcb1490.com The rebroadcast of the interview will actually begin promptly at 9:05 PM, immediately following the national news. The interview features a surprise guest appearance by Janie Grant's mentor: producer/singer/songwriter Gerry Granahan. And apart from that the show is full of some other surprises as well, not all of them planned! For the sake of editorial accuracy all goofs from the original show will still be there!!! Janie talked about several of her recordings, all of which we played in their entirety in the following order): "Triangle" "Romeo" "Roller Coaster" "Oh Johnny" "That Greasy Kid Stuff" "Tell Me Mama" "My Heart, Your Heart" Needless to say I'm grateful to the WBCB station management for allowing me to do this rebroadcast. I hope that many of you reading this message (particularly those of you who fondly remember Janie Grant and her recordings) will tune in. In related developments ..... During the December 6th broadcast, in addition to Janie Grant, I also did a two-hour live-by-phone interview with Diane Renay. We played her two big hit singles from 1964 ("Navy Blue" and "Kiss Me Sailor") and many tracks >from her brand new double-CD "Some Things Old And Some Things New," which is available exclusively on Diane's own website ... www.dianerenay.com. I am delighted to announce that on Monday, January 21st, I will be rebroadcasting about half of the original December 6th Diane Renay interview segments. And then, on the same show, Diane Renay will join me once again as a special guest live-by-phone and we'll play some tracks >from her Double-CD that we skipped the first time around. And -- as a BONUS -- we'll be giving away as prizes copies of Diane's Double-CD "Some Tnings Old And Some Things New" to some lucky listeners who call in at the specified time. We have a toll-free number so anybody listening on the Internet can participate in the Diane Renay prize giveaway!!! I hope that those of you who have over the years enjoyed Diane and her music can tune in. And by the way if you haven't heard any of the songs from her Double-CD (which covers 30 years of recordings!) you will be very pleasantly surprised at what a talent this lady is. "Navy Blue" and "Kiss Me, Sailor" don't even hint at how GREAT she is!!! And finally ..... I'm planning a live-by-phone interview show with Shelby Flint, the recording artist who sang the beautiful and haunting hit "Angel On My Shoulder" back in 1960. Another one of my all-time favorites. That interview should take place either the end of this month or early in February.

The Archies and Josie and the Pussycats Music Groups to Be Launched for Recordings, Tours, Live Action and Animated Television and Movies, Sponsorships and Merchandising NEW YORK, Jan. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Archie Entertainment Co-Chairman Michael Silberkleit, Lou Pearlman and ZelnickMedia principal Strauss Zelnick today announced the creation of a joint venture to launch real life music groups based upon The Archies and Josie and the Pussycats comic book character music groups of Archie Entertainment's affiliate, Archie Comic Publications, Inc. Over the years, the music sung by The Archies and Josie and the Pussycats in their hit TV series, motion pictures and musical recordings, including the song "Sugar, Sugar" which was the number one song for 1969, was performed by studio musicians. Under the terms of the agreement, Archie Entertainment will license the venture to create The Archies and Josie and the Pussycats as real life music groups. The venture will launch a nationwide talent search in cities across the United States to discover members for The Archies and Josie and the Pussycats music groups. Following the search, the two groups will begin work immediately on their debut albums and commence a rigorous schedule of rehearsals in advance of touring. Sponsorships, merchandising and commercial tie-ins will be handled exclusively by the venture, as will other ancillary activities involving the groups such as live action and animated television specials and series, and live action and animated theatrical and direct-to-video motion pictures. The content of every activity involving the groups will be subject to the approval of Archie Entertainment, in order to preserve the wholesome tradition of the beloved fictional Riverdale High School teenagers first introduced in the 1940s. Michael Silberkleit, Archie Entertainment said, "We are very excited to see our characters, who have lived in the imaginations of generations of readers, come to life as members of singing groups that, with Lou's help, are sure to be loved by kids, young and old, just like the Backstreet Boys and *NSYNC." "I am proud to be associated with ZelnickMedia and Archie Entertainment. I hope to have as much fun developing these projects as the public will have watching and listening to them," said Lou Pearlman. "We are thrilled to be partnering with Archie Entertainment and Lou Pearlman on this new endeavour," said Strauss Zelnick, ZelnickMedia. "The Archies and Josie and the Pussycats have long and successful legacies and the opportunity to work with Lou on this new venture is exhilarating." Archie Comic Publications Inc. launched Archie Entertainment in September of 2001 under the direction of Chuck Grimes in order to pursue an exciting array of new family oriented entertainment projects. "This joint venture is the first in a slate of new projects Archie Entertainment will be launching during 2002 as Archie Comics celebrates its diamond jubilee 60 year anniversary," said Richard Goldwater, Archie Entertainment Co-Chairman. "Other Archie Entertainment projects in active development are a Sabrina theatrical motion picture, an Archie stage production, creation of online communities for families as part of the ongoing enhancement of the Archie Comics website (http://www.archiecomics.com) regularly visited by millions of people. --------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------- Message: 24 Date: Wed, 16 Jan 2002 17:23:01 -0000 From: "Erik Meinen" Subject: TAPE TRADE Anyone interested in trading tapes or CD-R's?
