  1. One thing missing from this discussion: To my ears, the Uptones and the Bobby St. James releases of "I've Been Taken for a Ride" are identical, but the Saints on Kent is much different, with a second lead voice and a more cluttered (and not as good IMO) chorus.
  2. Sadly, he died earlier this month in Tampa, Florida. There is no announcement anywhere online, as far as I can see. I was informed by a relative of his and have been trying to get a newspaper to do a proper obituary, as befits the writer of such classic songs as Good Lovin', The Shoop Shoop Song, Everybody Plays the Fool, etc., etc.
  3. Huh, say what you will about the price of the Creations, but it's a brilliant record IMO.
  4. Yes, Gold Band. The sound file you posted is the "real" Tommy Andre "One More Try."
  5. Peaches/I Found Someone (Jin) Cash waiting.
  6. Not saying it sounds so similar, but it does have the lyric that's in your head...

  8. I can't shed light on the Happy Cats, but I can tell you that the Sirens learned the song from me! I'd dated one of them circa 2000, and I had an acetate of Destroy That Boy. It's the version that came out on Munster many years later. I put it out on Munster, in fact. The acetate came to me from my uncle, who was a close music-biz associate of Ollie's in Detroit (he was part owner of Tuba; the "Philly Dawgs" instrumental of "Hello Stranger" came out on Tuba to settle a debt, I believe). The Destroy That Boy acetate was cut in New York, and maybe it was a demo that was shopped to Ollie and ende
  9. Dumb thing I did: Got a copy of this from Greg Tormo a million years ago and loved it...quickly stumbled on a second copy for, I think, $40, and assumed it wasn't rare, having found two copies randomly within a couple months. And so traded on my spare for very little. Oh well.
  10. There are a several great Mel Williams records...had no idea which you were asking about.

  12. Could it be that the youtube version came from a compilation (New Orleans Soul and Funk Gumbo?) and is unreleased on 45? Wouldn't be the first time one of these New Orleans comps put forth an alternate version that confused people....
  13. Slightly different phenomenon, but: The bridge from Hit and Run resurfaces in another George McGregor composition, Little Rena Scott's I Just Can't Forget That Boy. It's at 1:11 in Rose, 1:53 in Rena.
