    I doubt if any of the Phi-Dan product got any airplay, Robb. The industry had turned its back on Phil's A-grade Philles girl-group releases. I doubt if they were interested in Phil's...

    And that's a shame, Robb. I love "I'll Never Need More Than This" even more than "River Deep".

    You're very welcome, Eddie. And thank you! Can't say for sure, but, other than ads in Billboard announcing each new single and album release, I doubt if Phil did much promoting.

    To answer your...

  6. Phil Spector - Part E - "A&M Records"

    Disenchanted with the music business, Phil Spector withdrew from record production for two years after the 1967 darkening of the lights at Philles Records. By 1969, however, he had grown bored with...

    I'm glad you brought up the Red Bird version, 144man! This record is one of the few instances where another producer actually managed to EQUAL Phil Spector's versions. And the Butterflys' lead...

    Two of my Philles favorites, 144man! I hadn't realized how similar they are!

    Ha! Yeah, she's definitely reminiscent of Millie Jackson's 'mistress' character in "I Still Love You (You Still Love Me)" from her "Still Caught Up" album. I Googled the Ikettes' lead singer in...

    Mysterysinger, you recently declared that your favorite version of "Girls Can Tell" is The Ronettes' version; I allowed that, although I love them both, my vote goes to The Crystals.

    Let's compare...

    Well, 144man, let's compare them and see what we come up with in similarities between the two songs:

    THE RONETTES:

    "I Wonder"

    "Girls Can Tell"...

    By George, you're right, John! I had not noticed that. The excellent jazz and blues Philles B-sides aside, some of those Philles B-side instrumentals all sound alike to me. These two are the same...

    Yes it is, 144man -- in a sped-up fashion. Thanks for pointing that out. (I had forgotten about their similarity.)

    BTW, back on Phil Spector - Part B - "Complete Philles LPs", you had asked a...

    Oh, I know, 144man. That thing is God-awful! Phil had to have done it as a joke and/or as a tax write-off. It sure wasn't for music quality!

    John, at the time, back in 1964, I wasn't aware of Veronica's (The Ronettes') "Why Don't They Let Us Fall In Love" 45 on the Phil Spector label. I discovered it on Phil's "Rare Masters (Vol. 1)" LP...

    Why, hello there, Boog! You know, that never occurred to me, but you've raised an interesting question. Why WOULD Sonny duplicate Phil's sound if the DJ's were tired if it? By the time Sonny &...

    Hi John!

    I love your barefoot childhood and your delightful "Mayberry" way of life which you described so eloquently! Riding your bikes all over town on your way to the "super-fancy indoor...

    Thanks for the RGM link to Blinky, danman. I've cancelled my Amazon order and have ordered it through Real Gone Music instead.
