Discovering minor GG records of the Swinging Sixties London sound is such a joy, and of course hitmakers Pet, Cilla, and especially Dusty are still great favorites. Jackie Trent is well represented on the Here Come The Girls series on Sequel. I know husband Tony Hatch produced her, and she also wrote many songs for Pet Clark with him. She also recorded under the name of Yvonne Burgess. Other than that I know little of her. Are there Jackie Trent/Tony Hatch albums? If so, are they any good? I adore her stuff on HCTG.

Their CD on Collectibles Col-CD-0527 is called "Whenever A Teenager Cries." It has 19 cuts, the sound quality is pretty poor.

Spradlin, bilXXX@XXXXXXe.net To: Spectropop List, spectroXXX@XXXXXXies.com I just discovered a couple of MP3's by the "Rag Dolls" (Bob Crewe's girl group) on the newsgroups. Really great girl-pop! Is there an import CD anywhere with "Dusty" or "Society Girl" on it? The reason im asking is that the Mp3s were recorded from worn 45's, and Id like to find better (and legit) copies of them.

Performers said the fakes cost them concert contracts and cheapen their work. "There are five Drifters groups, six Platters groups, countless fake Supremes, and impostor Sam and Dave just to name a few," said Rep. Dennis Kucinich, an Ohio Democrat, who held a news conference before a hearing on the problem. For years, the "Sam" in the Sam and Dave act was not the original, Sam Moore, but instead a man named Sam Daniels. Moore, tXXX@XXXXXXMan" creator, could do nothing to stop his estranged partner, Dave Prater Jr. -- the original "Dave" who died in 1988 -- from hiring a "fake" partner. "Never, ever, did they tell anyone that 'Sam' was a fake," Moore told the House subcommittee on courts and intellectual property. "No one should be able to take someone's else's identity as an artist and pretend to be them. If it's not Sam Moore singing 'Soul Man,' no one should pretend to be Sam Moore," Kucinich said. The House panel heard testimony from Moore and Joe Terry, an original from the Danny and the Juniors act, supporting a proposed amendment to a 1940s-era copyright law that would protect the identities of original performers. Mary Wilson, a charter member of the Diana Ross-led Supremes, said she spent more than $2 million to fight legal battles against the fake groups. Entangled record contracts and complicated copyright provisions have kept some of the disputes in court for years, performers said. Kucinich said the problem is so prevalent that music groups he considered to be impostors performed at the 1992 and 1996 presidential inauguration celebrations. "We have to make sure that they're (impostors) not making a great amount of money pretending to be who they're not, and make sure the people who are the real deal, the real issue, the real rock 'n' roll artists, real Hall of Famers; that they get the recognition and that they also get the financial compensation," Kucinich said.
