    At-a-boy! You hadn't commented on it, so I wasn't sure what to think. I had a feeling you'd love it. You raved about Darlene's "Stumble And Fall" which has a unique melody with...
  2. Hey John! Did Phil and Richard ever cross paths?...

    Hey John! Did Phil and Richard ever cross paths? Not that I know of. It's never been mentioned in the Spector books nor the Carpenters book that I have.

    I was pretty sure you'd love this...
  3. Thanks, Robb. Apology accepted. I know you're...

    Thanks, Robb. Apology accepted. I know you're typically not a troublemaker, which is why I was so shocked when it felt like you were singling me out for "causing misunderstandings between people...
  4. Yeah, I hear ya! I don't mind it when my Galaxy...

    Yeah, I hear ya! I don't mind it when my Galaxy 10e corrects a typo, but when it changes a word that I KNOW I typed correctly, it can be annoying! One word that this phone has a mind of it's own...
  5. Mystery, I agree with you regarding the...

    Mystery, I agree with you regarding the degregation of the English language -- both in spelling and in grammar usage. Other than high school band, English grammar and spelling was the ONE thing I...
  6. Yeah, right, Kenny! HA!

    Yeah, right, Kenny! HA!
  7. Jeez, Robb! Get a grip!!! So I confused the...

    Jeez, Robb! Get a grip!!! So I confused the term "cover" version with "remake". Who cares? Didn't mean to upset you so! If you're not a big fan of the USA, that's you're prerogative. But don't...

    Same here in the U.S., Mystery, although cover versions released as singles here are usually recorded a few years after the original hit version, not simultaneously with the current version.
  9. I didn't know that, Marv, but it would certainly...

    I didn't know that, Marv, but it would certainly stand to reason. And perfectly appropriate, too!

    I couldn't have said it better myself, Marv. Seems like all of my musical heroes have their unbecoming dark side, but how they shined while making music! And Phil was no exception. Whenever he...
  11. Also, Mystery (see above), Horace Faith's version...

    Also, Mystery (see above), Horace Faith's version of "Black Pearl" is really quite nice, although, like you, I prefer the version that I already know and love which, in my case, is Phil's original by...

    Thanks, Mystery. To my knowledge, those Checkmates B-sides are not available on any CD releases -- at least not on any Spector-related CDs which are what I collect.

    I had no idea that any other...

    Oh, I love Cher's "Dream Baby", too, Mystery! It's one of my favorite girl-group records. But the echoed bongos in Sonny's production weren't featured as predominately as they were on the two...

    CORRECTION -- Motown Eddie, the upcoming Part F - "Apple Records (1970)" above should have indicated the years 1970-1972, not just 1970.
  15. I doubt if any of the Phi-Dan product got any...

    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".
  17. You're very welcome, Eddie. And thank you! ...

    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...

  20. 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...
  21. I'm glad you brought up the Red Bird version,...

    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.
