    The DJ's rejecting The Cake as just another one of THOSE "Spectoresque" records may have been part of it, and we can't forget that the British Invasion knocked many of the American Girl Groups off...

    Here you go, Boogie! One of the very best bricks in the enormous Wall of Soundalikes:

    THE CAKE: "Baby That's Me":

  3. You can say that again, John! The Castanets'...

    You can say that again, John! The Castanets' record is a direct rip-off of The Crystals' "Then He Kissed Me" -- minus the magic that Phil gave The Crystals' original. Plus, no girl-group lead could...

    I always loved Jackie's "Both Ends Against The Middle" and, of course, "This Time Baby", which was a true masterpiece of Disco. May you rest in peace, Jackie, along with your fellow Philly Soul...

    Wow! You're right, Kenny. Blinky's new photo looks fantastic! You really oughta go to her concert. You know you'll kick yourself later if you don't!

    Hey Boogie! The record business of the '60s was dog-eat-dog -- anything to get ahead at the other guy's expense. Right or wrong, that's how it was, and probably still is, although record labels no...

    Down, boy! Ha! That's definitely not Carl Wilson. I got out my CD booklet to see if there's a front-cover photo credit. Lo and behold, there is! However, it credits everyone EXCEPT the guy you're...

    Hi 144man! Yeah, that's why I pointed out that Abner Spector is no relation to Phil. But the Spectorious label? My source lists "On The Spanish Side" as being on the Tuff label. In fact, here's...

    Thank you very much, Heikki! I'm glad you've been enjoying it! As a kid of 11, in 1962, Phil was my first musical hero thanks to The Crystals' "He's A Rebel" 45 and LP. It didn't take long before...

    You like that, John? True, it's a known fact that Phil had a fairly successful string of hits on various record labels before he started Philles. But, to my ear, they didn't sound anything like...

    Thanks for posting that, Marv! Johhny Bristol was such a nice guy. I met him during my tour of Motown's Donovan Building back in October 1971. He was in the middle of mixing the Vocal version of...

    Already did, Kenny! I had already pre-ordered my copy from Amazon from day 1, but then canceled it and ordered it directly from Real Gone to be sure that Blinky's CD gets credit for the sale. The...
