JAN & DEAN - DEAD MAN'S CURVE 2 CD SET
« on: September 02, 2013, 11:00:03 AM »
I am considering buying this 2CD set entitled 'Dead Man's Curve', released by TOMA/Iceni in 2005.  I have read that disc 1 is Jan & Dean demo's of their hits but don't want a Dean & Mike CD, has anyone got this set?  Is it actually original Jan & Dean demo's from the 60's?

Disc 2 looks very interesting with several Jan Berry 1970's recordings - Tinsel Town, Don't You Just Know It, Little Queenie, That's the Way It Is etc.

Any help with the details of this release would be much appreciated.  Also does it come as two slimline cases housed in an outer slipcase?

Thanks.

Judging from the song list-Fun Fun Fun and I Get Around among others, it sounds like the 1977 Dean recordings

Thanks for your comment, yeah if this youtube audio is from the album cover as shown it is not the original versions:

"Fun, Fun, Fun" Jan & Dean

I am still interested in the Jan Berry recordings on disc 2 but wish there was a dedicated collection for his songs post-accident.  I know about Fun City, the CDR available from Amazon but not that drawn to it due to the source material used varying in quality and because it is a CDR.  I have the 'Oddities' LP on the way which although not an official release has some of my favourite Jan tracks post-accident on it and will be great to have them on vinyl, hope the source material is good.  Hope one day someone will do a Jan Berry Collection going back to the master tapes as their source.
