It would be fun to mash the two songs together.

I'm dying to give him my love, but he won't come back from Dead Man's Curve.

I just ordered my copy. This CD has released the Pixie song "I'm Dying to Give my Love to you". I'm as excited as I was for Filet of Soul. I think this song shows Jan's talents as writer, arranger, and producer before he met Brian. Aspects of Jan's production of this song show up on later Jan & Dean recordings. It also gives insight into what Jan wrote on Deadman's Curve. The intro for sure, but also the background girls singing is similar to the chorus on DMC.

Indeed!  I've shared the original version of Spring Break with Wounded Bird and it'll be included as a bonus track on the 20th Anniversary Edition released May 4, 2018 along with a spoken-intro version of Get That Girl.


That's great news, Rob!  Is the alternate mix for "So Here I Go Again" you mentioned previously being included, too?

3 Window Coupe has always been one of my favorites. And you're right, just listen to that great fade out. The background vocals really add to it. Right now I'm not sure if it's Dean, Sloan & Barri or the Matadors. I'll have to get back to Mark's book for that answer.

Gertie is absolutely terrific, I agree.  If it wasn't for Gertie's support I don't think Jan would have completed this project, she was indeed an inspiration to him.

Thanks for the answer, Rob.  Not the one I would have liked to hear, tho'.
I'm pretty stubborn, so I think I'll continue to believe that Jan wrote some of the songs on "Second Wave" for Gertie.      Gertie is one terrific gal.

I know nothing about the inner workings of Jan & Dean. But when I listen to Second Wave, I imagine in my mind that Jan wrote at least some of the songs for Gertie.
Get That Girl;   Love Her Tonight;   She's Dancing, Dancing;   Oh, The Love Inside Me; and So Here I Go Again.

Can anyone confirm or deny this?


Gertie came into Jan's life after we started the Second Wave project, but she helped write lyrics for Oh, The Love Inside Me and certainly inspired Jan's work on the album.
Get That Girl was mostly completed by me before I met Jan.  I played and sang it for him, he loved it and wanted to write an intro for it, which he did.
I wrote Spring Break for this project after we started working together, with Jan contributing some lyrics and melody.
Love Her Tonight was mostly written before I met Jan, I added to and edited some of the lyrics on that one.
She's Dancing was written by Jan with Dick and Sandy St. John before we started the project.
Oh, The Love Inside Me was somewhat written before we started Second Wave, Gertie and I helped Jan finish that one up.
So Here I Go Again, not to be confused with the Whitesnake hit (!), was mostly finished before we started the project.
31 Flavors, 31 Years was written by me, with Jan offering some tweaks in the melody.  We recorded that one (with Dean) in a session that started at 11 p.m. and went until 8 a.m.   Rod Stewart was next door recording and was checking out our session through the door, looking just like Rod Stewart always does...
