DON'T YOU JUST KNOW IT / Re: RRHOF
« on: October 07, 2010, 02:19:11 PM »
Something's been bothering me since posting about Jan & Dean getting on the 'surf & car' bandwagon and I am starting to doubt what I originally thought.  Did they 'jump on it' or were they doing it at the same time as the Beach Boys?

Great conversation!  So glad I joined this forum, even though I am a relatively new Jan & Dean fan. 

Sounds like this RRHoF issue is made more complex if decisions are driven by politics.  I guess Jan & Dean may get in when this changes and perhaps different people are in charge. 

So candidates/inductees into the RRHoF are chosen only when they fit into a certain box, but then I would doubt that many would get in?

I' ve said it here before and I'll say it again . They are not in the Hall due to politics and songs like Universal Coward (pro Namm song).

An interesting thought, however do you 'know' that those who choose the RRHoF candidates are anti-Vietnam and so therefore would be offended by a song such as Universal Coward?  Seems to me that along with 'Only A Boy' that such songs would be quite patriot to the U.S.

Maybe it's because Jan & Dean tended to jump on the bandwagon of other peoples ideas and didn't forge their own sound/approach i.e. surf & car songs.  Maybe if they had moved forward with their own sound after their doo-wop period (assuming that was original) they would have more credibility?

Also maybe it was the novelty/comedy factor in some of their songs that meant that people didn't take them seriously.

If true, it is a shame as I believe these qualities shouldn't preclude them from being nominated and indeed chosen for the RRHoF.

I think it would have lifted their profile a bit if Liberty/Capitol had done more with the releases but of course I do agree that The Beach Boys are in a different league commercially.

I also agree that Jan Berry's credentials would seem to put him in good stead for the RRHOF.  I wonder if after his accident Jan & Dean sort of faded out and that is part of the reason?  Still, I would have thought that their achievements would still be 'known' to the powers that be who choose candidates for the RRHOF (I'm not sure how this is arrived at, anyone know what the process involves?).

That does seem strange, I haven't even heard of those two you mentioned.

I guess its one of two things, either they are a good duo, wrongly under-rated or they are not so good and don't deserve the recognition.  I believe it is the first one but I hope there isn't some other reason why they don't seem to get noticed. 

Even Liberty/Capitol don't seem to do much with them, with only one official re-issue done on CD of the original albums and that seemed to be done by another label (One Way) and only manufactured by Capitol.  When you compare this with The Beach Boys re-issues they are 'official' Capitol releases and have been done twice over on CD over the years with new remastering each time.

Anyone know what the reference to Maharishi is meant to signify?

Both the CD and CD/LP package are listed on the Rhino UK site here:

http://www.rhino.co.uk/artists/view,artist_10647.htm

I am just a little unsure of ordering though in case the website is out of date etc.
