There's a song that plays on Spectropop called "Wonder
Christmas" by Chocolat.  It's in Japanese.  The same song
is on Spectropop Girls Group called "Warm Winter Dreams"
by Lisa.   Any idea how I can get my hands on either
version? Thanks.  

Wish I could've seen Brian Wilson in London on Wednesday
night.  I understand it was his best concert EVER.  I do
see him jogging around Holmby Park but it's not the same

Back in 1965 when I went to Taft high school in Woodland
Hills, California if you bought a "Student Activity Card"
for five dollars you could get into all the football and
basketball games.  And as an extra incentive you were
entitled to attend a free assembly.  Hey, anything to get
out of class.  So I bought the card and instead of going
to third period one day trudged to the auditorium for the
surprise assembly.  And the band was Brian Wilson and the
Beach Boys.   It's maybe one of two good high school

Hello All,

Thanks to John, Jan and James for their info on the
Henrietta & The Hairdooz cuts.  This was one of the many
names of Baby Jane & The Rockabyes.  I am fortunate to
have located Yvonne DeMunn of the group.  She has agreed
to be interviewed.   I'll keep everyone posted.

I used to read Bim Boom Boom and Time Barrier Express.
These magazines are long out-of-print but I'm sure if I
ever get around to cleaning up my basement and my attic
I'll find some old copies!

I used to know Ralph M. Newman, who co-published BBB and
published TBE. I co-wrote a Jackie Wilson article with
him for TBE.

Does anyone here happen to know Ralph's whereabouts and
whether he's still involved in music journalism?

Greetings everyone.  I'm a brand new member, but a long
time lover of 60s music of all types, pop, rock, jazz,
mod, soul, you name it.

I'm curious if anyone knows anything about efforts to
recreate The Archies and record a contemporary version of
Sugar, Sugar.

Subject: The Buggs - Beetle Beat Lp

I have an album I purchased in the 60s when every
company wanted a Beatles album in thier catalog. Coronet
Records, a promotional priced label in New York, issued
The Beetle Beat by The Buggs on CX-212. The lp has ten
songs in that Liverpool Sound. The two Beatles songs are
I Want To Hold Your Hand and She Loves You so that shows
how early the Lp was issued. Rather than filling the Lp
with cheap instumentals like most labels it has regular
songs that have been renamed with British Names.

Soho Mash is "Just One Look" the Doris Troy song. That
is the only song I can identify. Apparently the company
sold a ton of these records because they are fairly easy
to find. A good near mint copy does bring quite a bit.
Stay away from the stereo LP. I bought it a few years
ago and it is rechanneled. I wonder if any of the beatle
experts on the list can identify the group and the
actual name of the other songs on the lp.

The unidentified songs are: Mersy Mercy, East End,
London Town Swing, Liverpool Drag, Swingin' Thames, Ben
Ben Hop, and Teddy Boy Stomp. All obviously made up
names for otherwise good songs.

I disagree with you.  I think it's the '80s production
values you're complaining about, not the songs.  They DO
have a '60s feel.  My favorites are "Here Is My Love"
(reminds me of The Archies), "Oo-Wee, Baby" (Spector
sound, natch) and "However Dark The Night" (like an
Elvis Presley soundtrack song).
