    Doo Wop Question

    Has anyone ever seen an actual copy of the Moonglows "Beatnik/Junior" on Chess?

    If you have one, let me know. I'm just wondering if it was ever released on record.

    Thanks.

    20 Grand Size

    How big were the Driftwood and Fireside Lounge rooms in the 20 Grand?

    How many people do you think would have fit?

    That's right. There are two newsletters in this collection. One of each. (One Platter and one Bulletin.) I've also seen a Motown Newsletter from 1972.
