    Barney Duke Bonnie Browner

    As I recall the BMI registration & lyric sheets were obtained by Pete Lowrie ... many will recall he had a lot of good hits in Detroit which included a lot of Motown items .. acetates, and so on, from the clear out of the Woodward Building I'm 99% sure I got photocopies of the documents from him .. unless Ted Massey wants to correct me on that .. it was a long time ago ! Gilly .. you don't need me to tell you how much respect we have for the things you've done .. and those of us who know do know I recall making a comment in another thread regarding Tim's 'Tracks To Your Mind' publication and how high he set the benchmark for the rest of us .. the same applies to you I have no doubt your book will be beyond amazing Best Andy

    Christine Cooper - Voices of Vista Lp - 1966

    Eddie did date Christine .... Anybody asked him if he might be able to locate her ? andy
  4. Scott English was known to use Jimmy Radcliffe for demo discs ... And Jimmy had a voice versatile enough to not sound like the Jimmy we are familiar with as a solo artist not saying .. Just a suggestion andy

    Nice bit of detective work there .... I've often wondered about them but forgot to ask Stan Vincent, who co-produced the track, when we spoke As you know Vincent had been involved with the Holton/Security set up and had worked with Lou Christie, 5 Stairsteps and many others the track was certainly being played at Cleethorpes in Feb 74 as its featured on the recording I gave to Pete Smith which is available on his site Andy

  8. Mello Souls - Fisher Harmon R.I.P. I'm sad to let you know that Fisher P. Harmon died, aged 70, last month Fisher alongside Silas Phifer, Jim T & Randy provided us with one of the most loved and iconic 45s of all time. He was a great guy and was both humbled, amazed and very happy to learn that 'We Can Make It' had finally hit home. This was the side that featured his lead vocal When Rupert & I visited him, in September 2016, he was full of great stories about his life and times and the journey that the Mello Souls took that resulted in their one, and only, recording session on September 24th 1967 We were thrilled that we reunited him that week with the 'teenagers' who provided the music. The pictures show Fisher, at home, with his 45 .... touching base with Larry, who was one of those 'teenagers, and meeting, for the first time in decades, the children of Mr Marshall, the group's manager R.I.P. Fisher Another job well done Andy

    Possibly THE Rarest Soul 45?

    clearly things have changed since the test press surfaced ...... but at the time I wrote this it was pretty definitive Andy

  12. I never knew Christine had a singing sister ... I wonder if she cut any tracks Andy 6 March 1966 edition Super K Action Super NEW YORK-Spurred by the success of its first production, "S.O.S" by Christine Cooper on Parkway Records, Super K Enterprises is moving to larger quarters at 1650 Broadway and announcing other growing plans. Super K, which maintains an open door policy, also has just signed the You Know Who group, probably to be on their Attack label. Firm is dickering with several diskeries for Belle Cooper, Christine's sister. And Christine will have a new single out soon, either "Heartaches Away My Boy" or "Farewell to Love." The K fellows manage Miss Cooper too, who is getting a lot of choice bookings and there's a nice advert and pics in the 15 Jan 1966 edition
  13. Random one Roy Orbison - It's Over If Arthur Alexander had recorded this I'd be in heaven A
  14. If you haven't got this you really should buy it. I purchased it upon release and found it inspirational ... it set a very high benchmark for the rest of us Such a shame there weren't more .. but totally understandable Andy
