DON'T YOU JUST KNOW IT / Where is Gertie Berry?

Is anybody out there still in contact with Gertie Berry?  We never hear about Jan’s lovely wife.  I wonder if she remarried.

Why wasn't Dean vocals on the jan and dean label added to the cd. Making more a jan and dean album. Also how did Dean get hold of the tapes jan was working on to add his vocals?

Great stuff - thanks. I am sure that the wrecking crew are on her track. Great rhythm guitars and driving bass and drums. If I hadn't known otherwise I would have put it down to a Jan production.

DON'T YOU JUST KNOW IT / Put a Dodge in your garage, Honey
« Last post by Surfermike on September 23, 2018, 12:31:11 PM »
While re-reading Mark's great book recently, I came across the subject with Kathryn Minner, the little old lady who was on a local Dodge dealer's ad. Her tag line was "put a Dodge in your garage, honey!" Something clicked in me that I heard or saw that phrase somewhere else. With nothing much to do one day(it was probably raining), I did a little detective work and got out my trusty magnifying glass. For those of you with good eyesight, check out the back cover of the Ride The Wild Surf LP. See the Little Old Lady From Pasadena album(among others)? Look very closely at that album cover where the titles of the songs are and you'll see the words "Put a Dodge in your garage, Honey." How did that song title get there? Was that an art department goof? Was Jan working on a song with that title? And lastly, does SurferMike have that much free time to be looking at J&D back covers with a magnifying glass like Sherlock Holmes? Forget that last question. Someone else spotted that before I did but I can't remember. Maybe Mike Kelly in his Sunshine Music fanzine. Dave, can you help us out (that is is those of us who are wondering)?Anybody else have an answer?

My 3 singles would have been. In this order.1 Blowing my mind bw tijuana. 2 Hawaii bw laurel and hardy. 3 Only a boy bw love and hate. Hawaii has the surf feel to it,and if i m correct screen Gem or warner only wanted new songs, so tijuana was blocked from the album, but ok as a b side.

Susan Lynne has a biography page on 45cat:

Susan Lynne - Biography 

Susan Lynne Koskowitz was born on July 25, 1946. She was a student at Far Rockaway High School in New York when she began recording in 1962 under the name Susan Lynne while working with producers Charles Koppelman and Don Rudin. More of her singles were released through 1964, her last year in high school.

After high school, she studied at Beaver (now Arcadia) College in Pennsylvania, majoring in Spanish. She then embarked on a career in education, initially as a Spanish and ESL teacher and lastly as the Vice-Principal of Reuben Gittelman Hebrew Day School in New City, NY (under her married name of Susan Sobler). She died of cancer on January 31, 2004 at the age of 57.

While none of her singles ever made the Billboard Top 100, her 1964 recording of "Don't Drag No More" received belated recognition when it was included in the 2005 compilation "One Kiss Can Lead to Another: Girl Group Sounds Lost and Found".


There is also a discography on her page:
http://www.45cat.com/artist/susan-lynne

"Dont' Drag No More" was issued in '64 as Capitol 5201, backed with "In His Car" which was also written by Artie Kornfeld and included a picture sleeve.  In the comments of the record details page you'll find a list of unreleased material that seem to be related, I would say it looks like Artie intended to release an album that never materialized.

SUSAN LYNN:
 (Session #12145)(purchased masters) LA?,October 16,1964 (?)
 53026 Queen of the drags unissued

Not replying to myself I promise.

On the same album there is a track by the Surf Bunnies - Our Surfer Boys that name checks, Jan, Dean and Brian. 'and Jimmy too!' Anyone know who Jimmy is?
