DON'T YOU JUST KNOW IT / Jan Berry's Ring

I have seen in pictures a ring that Jan wore and wondered if anyone knew anything about it?  Here is a picture showing it:

Found some info about this release whilst browsing earlier threads which answers my question:

Considering picking these up but not sure if I need them as I have the same 6 albums on the C5 label.  Are these Japanese versions that much better than the C5's?

Thanks

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.

DON'T YOU JUST KNOW IT / 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.

Such a shame no-one can or will help out with this problem, caution advised when considering purchasing digital downloads in case the liner notes have been omitted with no way of getting them elsewhere.  May cast a shadow upon those planning future hard copy publications due to being unhelpful.  Don't forget we're all brothers & sisters in Jan & Dean :)

Is it true that you have to be careful of purchasing Jan & Dean compilation albums in case they contain these re-recordings?  It seems to ring a bell with me.

Thanks for the heads-up on this.

Did a few searches using the ISBN and can't seem to find any info.  The website below has it and underneath there are lots of books with similar covers, just different titles on them.  The publisher seems to be the same, Books LLC.

Very good!  What version of the song did they use?  It didn't sound like the original...

Well, the Beach Boys sang about it first. However, surf music had been around in instrumental form before the BB's. I've read one historian who claims the first vocal surf song was actually Baby Talk. Jan & Dean definitely influenced the surf sound but the BB's were the first to write lyrics and sing about surf and drag. Jan & Dean were right behind them. I don't know if Jumping on the bandwagon is accurate because Jan & Dean were a big part of why surf music became so popular. It really wasn't an established style of music until after J*D and The BB's were both riding the wave. That's my opinion, anyway.

Thanks for the info.

I just got 'All the Hits from Surf City to Drag City' and the songs sound great to me!  I know some might not like it if they are remixed but I own some of the C5 CD's and compared to them it's certainly hasn't taken anything away.  I also like the remastered sound, Surf City sounds the clearest and strongest I have heard it so far.

I also like the packaging in a 'fat box' old style double CD case, I think mine is an older version as I expect the newer ones come in a jewel case that holds 2 cd's.  I always find these a bit fiddly and feels like the inner tray is going to come away!  I also like this compilation as it has my favourite tracks from Folk'n'Roll. 

Definitely recommended.
