Free at last... to listen to fine pop sounds

Hello everyone! Hello Andrew!

lots of pop on top!

So true. Mine today is finishing laundry and enjoying CTTS. Part of the freedom he fought for, I'm certain.

Listening from Palm Springs....

welcome all multitaskers!

there is room in the Sunshine for all of us
Avatar 6:08pm mce1965:

Avatar 6:09pm mce1965:

a nice cover... not heard this one
Avatar 6:09pm cometothesunshine:

This is one of the most pop filled shows in recent times
Avatar 6:09pm cometothesunshine:

I found this single by the Torques in Milwaukee
Avatar 6:10pm cometothesunshine:

This song got a lot of covers!
Avatar 6:10pm mce1965:

it sure did
  6:10pm Javier from Arge tina:

I love this song, but The Zombies version can't be beaten!
Avatar 6:12pm cometothesunshine:

The Zombies is certainly the best!
Avatar 6:15pm Debbie D.:

Diggin' the show!
Avatar 6:16pm cometothesunshine:

Thanks, Debbie!
Avatar 6:16pm cometothesunshine:

I appreciate you stopping by!
  6:17pm Javier from Argentina:

Once again discovering exciting new (old) music here thanks to Mr. Sandoval!
Avatar 6:19pm cometothesunshine:

I am so glad! My dig through the 45 boxes this week was especially fruitful.
  6:20pm Javier from Argentina:

Today I was having lunch at a friend's house and told him about the show. He said he didn't know who you were. I took the Kinks Kontroversy 2 CD set from his shelf and said "Read the credits!" lol
Avatar 6:21pm cometothesunshine:

quite a compliment - thank you!
Avatar 6:21pm cometothesunshine:

That is, of course, one of my favorite albums - a life changer for sure
  6:22pm Javier from Argentina:

Great song, though I prefer Johnny Burnette's and Herman's Hermits doing it. Gants are too "garage" for me.
Avatar 6:22pm cometothesunshine:

I like those versions too - this is a fairly garagey set
Avatar 6:22pm cometothesunshine:

But, there are some particularly soft sounds on the way
  6:23pm Javier from Argentina:

Of course! But I consider "Something Else" and "Village green" life changers as well.
Avatar 6:23pm cometothesunshine:

Hard to believe these are the nascent Hudson Bros.
  6:23pm Dave Amels:

Hi Andrew!
  6:24pm Javier from Argentina:

Hudson as in "Mark Hudson" Ringo's producer?
Avatar 6:24pm cometothesunshine:

Hey Dave!
Avatar 6:24pm mce1965:

Yup indeed re: Huds
Avatar 6:24pm cometothesunshine:

Yes, that Mark Hudson - before his multicolored beard
Avatar 6:25pm mce1965:

Pre-beard paint
Avatar 6:25pm cometothesunshine:

This - The Lovin' - is a great Larry page production
  6:25pm Javier from Argentina:

Wow! Never heard it before and like it!
Avatar 6:27pm cometothesunshine:

A very tough sounding British record, in places
Avatar 6:27pm mce1965:

A proper kind of tough
Avatar 6:30pm cometothesunshine:

I misread the release date of the New Yorkers - actually august 1967 - my apologies - time takes time
  6:30pm Javier from Argentina:

Is this on CD? The Playground. Lovely sunshine pop
Avatar 6:31pm cometothesunshine:

It has never officially been on CD - it has been bootlegged on some comps - this is direct from the original 45 - as are all the things in part one of the show.
  6:32pm Javier from Argentina:

I'll have to lookup the Bootleg then! What are labels like RPM or Cherry red doing? They have to release it! BTW: Great job on digitizing the singles!
Avatar 6:33pm cometothesunshine:

This track from the Happy Medium features one of the most ubiquitous LA session guitarists on the late 1960's - still trying to figure out who it is - but I hear him on so many records.
Avatar 6:34pm cometothesunshine:

I spend a lot of time cleaning records!
Avatar 6:36pm cometothesunshine:

Don't Fear The Reverb!
Avatar 6:37pm cometothesunshine:

Would like to track down the Elli LP on Dig The Fuzz
Avatar 6:37pm mce1965:

Great tune from Elli
Avatar 6:38pm cometothesunshine:

yes, I want more!
Avatar 6:40pm cometothesunshine:

I really like this one by the Higher Elevation
Avatar 6:40pm cometothesunshine:

almost didn't get a play this week, because of inner groove distortion
Avatar 6:41pm mce1965:

The cleaning magic worked
Avatar 6:42pm cometothesunshine:

just enough
Avatar 6:43pm cometothesunshine:

My apologies for the stereo! The late '60s brought with them many complications.
Avatar 6:43pm mce1965:

You anticipated me
Avatar 6:44pm mce1965:

The GWP label was a early proponent of stereo 45s I guess
Avatar 6:44pm cometothesunshine:

I guess it was
Avatar 6:45pm mce1965:

Was this found in STL or KC?
Avatar 6:45pm cometothesunshine:

At the record meet we went to
Avatar 6:46pm cometothesunshine:

This single by The Game was found in Kansas City a few months back.
Avatar 6:46pm mce1965:

So it's a Missouri mood with this set. Nice track!
Avatar 6:47pm cometothesunshine:

very soft - i feel like this whole set was dipped in Snuggle and put in the dryer
Avatar 6:47pm mce1965:

Apt for my multitasking
  6:50pm Javier from Argentina:

Wow this is good! Is there more by Chris Wilson?
Avatar 6:50pm mce1965:

Did you ever find Chris's other 45?
Avatar 6:51pm cometothesunshine:

I did!
Avatar 6:51pm cometothesunshine:

I have it here in the record room - coming soon, perhaps.
Avatar 6:52pm mce1965:

Ah good
  6:54pm Javier from Argentina:

Question unrelated to the show: Why are the bonus discs on the first 3 Bee Gees so short? Record company limitation or not enough rare material to include? Sorry for the off topic question. But these CDs I collect bring me a lot of questions about their making!
Avatar 6:56pm cometothesunshine:

Javier - In the US, companies pay per song on CD, so part of it is paying for the publishing. The other part is the material that Barry & Robin would approve. However, they did approve the majority of what I presented them.
  6:58pm Javier from Argentina:

Thank you for your response, Andrew! These bonus discs always leave me wanting more.
Avatar 6:59pm cometothesunshine:

sometimes there isn't much more!
Avatar 7:02pm mce1965:

Chris... a very unfairly overlooked artist
Avatar 7:02pm mce1965:

Great stuff
  7:02pm Javier from Argentina:

I love your Monkees reissues cause they're filled to the brim with stuff! It only pisses me off that the bonus tracks from previous reissues sometimes are not included so I have to keep both lol
Avatar 7:02pm cometothesunshine:

strange that he abandoned rock on A&M, but I believe he signed to the label to do his thing and Herb took him in a new direction.
  7:03pm Javier from Argentina:

Is this the same Chris Montez from "Let's dance"? wow, didn't know he went this route
Avatar 7:03pm mce1965:

Yeah, I think Call Me pretty much determined the rest of his career on A&M
Avatar 7:04pm mce1965:

But that's fine with me
Avatar 7:04pm cometothesunshine:

Yes, this is the "Let's Dance" Chris
Avatar 7:04pm mce1965:

Plus they added this Johnny Rivers/Trini Lopez "live" thing
Avatar 7:05pm cometothesunshine:

Sometimes there are legal reasons why certain bonus cuts don't move forward to new reissues
Avatar 7:05pm cometothesunshine:

Yes, very Trini/Johnny/Stars On 45
Avatar 7:07pm cometothesunshine:

I would like to say that these were simpler times, but being that we are honoring MLK day, they really were not.
Avatar 7:09pm cometothesunshine:

Still, Chris was a Latino rocker who made good and sold a lot of albums. He never made any especially hip ones, but the next set will display his early rocking sides.
  7:10pm Javier from Argentina:

I'm really liking Chris Montez poppier side!
Avatar 7:10pm mce1965:

It don't have to be hip to be cool
Avatar 7:12pm cometothesunshine:

So this is from a pre-"Call Me" A&M session produced by Marshall Leib - I wonder if they did more like this?
Avatar 7:13pm mce1965:

I'd bet they were shelved when the new direction succeeded
Avatar 7:14pm mce1965:

This is a great track though
Avatar 7:15pm cometothesunshine:

Yes, one other track surfaced later - "Elena" - but I imagine the rest burned up in the Universal fire.
Avatar 7:16pm cometothesunshine:

I love these very Searchers sounding tracks.
Avatar 7:17pm cometothesunshine:

He yells "Go Head On" during this one!
Avatar 7:18pm mce1965:

An early clue
Avatar 7:19pm cometothesunshine:

Avatar 7:19pm mce1965:

Nice use of the Raunchy lick
Avatar 7:19pm cometothesunshine:

and this is post-Beatles
Avatar 7:19pm mce1965:

Avatar 7:20pm cometothesunshine:

I love Derek Taylor's liner notes where he mentions he thought the DJ said "Miss Montez" when he first heard "Call Me."
Avatar 7:21pm cometothesunshine:

I regret not speaking to Larry Marks about producing Chris Montez when I had the chance.
Avatar 7:26pm cometothesunshine:

I am surprised A&M didn't keep him on, selling easy listening LP's
Avatar 7:27pm cometothesunshine:

Maximum Softness
Avatar 7:28pm cometothesunshine:

Total "Balloons in The Park" rock
  7:29pm Javier from Argentina:

Nice cover!
Avatar 7:30pm cometothesunshine:

yes, one of the better "Sunny"'s out there
  7:30pm Javier from Argentina:

I've first heard this song by Del Shannon
Avatar 7:30pm cometothesunshine:

a good one too
Avatar 7:33pm cometothesunshine:

Sounds like Wes Montgomery on guitar
Avatar 7:42pm mce1965:

I'm certain it is
Avatar 7:43pm mce1965:

And the rest of the A&M orchestra on handclaps
Avatar 7:44pm cometothesunshine:

You get the impression it was a nice label to be on.
Avatar 7:44pm mce1965:

As artist-friendly as it gets
Avatar 7:45pm cometothesunshine:

Started in a garage - perfection
Avatar 7:45pm mce1965:

Avatar 7:47pm mce1965:

Another gorgeous show Andrew... I am off for some dinner but will keep the sunshine on in the background
Avatar 7:47pm cometothesunshine:

enjoy - thanks for listening and your help!
Avatar 7:48pm mce1965:

  7:50pm Javier from Argentina:

What comp would you recommend on CD to get the Montez post rnr stuff? Great show!
Avatar 7:52pm cometothesunshine:

There are lots of CDs - in Japan all 4 of his A&M albums came out and are fairly easy to find. Steve Hoffman did a CD - all stereo with some remixes.
  7:53pm Javier from Argentina:

I'll lookup the Hoffman one. I spend quite some time at his forum lol.
Thank you for the music Andrew!
Avatar 7:55pm cometothesunshine:

Thanks for listening!
Avatar 7:58pm cometothesunshine:

Avatar 7:58pm Woof:

Great show, Andrew! Thank you!
Avatar 8:00pm cometothesunshine:

Things go better with Diet Coke. Hey, Andrew!

@FAB4John who was that masked man?
