    The Brit GGs were so unfairly ignored in America. 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.
    Comments please!

    A friend of mine mentioned that he had heard about a Pixies 
    Three cd recently being released.
    I would love to get it if it's available. Have any of you 
    Spectropops heard about it?
    Thanks,  John King

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

    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.

    While someone smarter than I is verifying, could that person 
    also shed light on this rumor that I heard a dj say on the radio 
    a couple years ago: that Spector produced three or four tracks 
    for Elvis Presley?  Sounds crazy, but the dj really seemed to be 
    in earnest about it.

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A group of early rock 'n' roll greats 
    urged lawmakers on Capitol Hill Thursday to close what they say
    is a loophole in U.S. copyright law that allows imitator groups 
    to tour under assumed identities, making money off songs 
    recorded by the original artists.
    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 
    "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 
    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 
    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.
