Good point Bitman. I just need to not stress about the Hall of Fame. I guess it's just bullshit anyway. The thing is, even if Jan wasn't one of the best producers out of the West Coast, it seems like all significant acts from the first 10 years of rock should be in. Jan & Dean were making top 10 hits when Buddy Holly was still rockin. I think all acts that had top 10 hits in the fifties and sixties should be a no brainer. But I'm done with that now. I guess it really doesn't matter anyway. We know the truth. And we have the music!!

What's going on with I-Tunes? Now, the only Jan & Dean available are the BS Dean versions. The original versions have been taken off!!! What happened?

I know Darlene Love did a lot of songs as a session singer. I'm not putting her down.
As far as bandwagon, I think most artists jump on some bandwagon. Elvis copied a lot of songs. The Beach Boys sang about a new subject but took sounds from Jan & Dean and esp Chuck Berry( listen to Surfin USA and Fun Fun Fun and compare to Sweet Little 16 and Roll Over Beetoven). It's hard to be completely original. But Jan's production techniques were largely original. Jennie Lee, I never heard anything like that. Pop Symphony-original. I think the bandwagon thing is over-stated.

Wintersdawn, thanks for the reply. I don't want to compare Jan & Dean's re-issues to that of the Beach Boys. The Beach Boys were much more commercial and will get more attention. I just don't get why these other little artists get more love than a duo that had many more hits, influenced the entire West Coast sound and punk rock. Arranged and produced his own records plus co-wrote most of them. Taught Brian Wilson, Gary Zeckley, Phil Sloan and others how to produce a clean record. Yeah, Dr John and Darlene Love get in before Jan Berry!!!! Are you kidding me??

I just saw that Darlene Love(He's a Rebel) and Dr John are being considered for the Rock Hall of Fame. How can these artists go before Jan Berry and Jan & Dean? Darlene Love didn't write or produce anything that I know of and Dr John is famous down here in Louisiana, but do any of you know about him??
Is Jan & Dean even being looked at??

I enjoyed the interview with Mike and Dean, but at times it was aggrevating too. Dean never seemed to give a straight answer. I've always enjoyed Dean's sense of humor, but sometimes it would be nice for him to answer the question.
There was a moment when Tush was asking who was first and when it started.Mike was actually answering for Dean by saying the Beach Boys listened to J&D while in high school. I wish Dean would have ellaborated on Jennie Lee and Baby Talk and how that phase really kicked off the West Coast Sound. Later, Tush asked Dean about Jan, Dean just went off on something else. Lost oppurtunities. One other interesting note. Mike, in this interview, gave Brian all the credit for the music. Later years, he seemed to change his tune a little. Something must have happened later on that hurt Mike and Brian's relationship.

Vocally, I noticed that as well. He sounded pretty good on those mid 70s songs. I'm sure they did some touching up in the studio. His live performances were on and off in my opinion. He had his good days and bad days. Maybe that had to do with drugs.

OK one more. This is a video of me lip syncing to my own record. I wrote this song after I saw the movie Dead Man's Curve. The bomps are from Jennie Lee. I changed them a little. I wanted to be the next Jan Berry. It didn't work out.lol  This is from 1982.

I think Dean was on a lot of significant Liberty songs. Certainly Linda, Honolulu Lulu, Drag City, DMC, NGIS, Ride the Wild Surf, Popsicle, Summer Means Fun, etc. Not bad. He certainly missed out on the 2 biggest hits, but I guess it really didn't matter. As long as Jan did the producing, it was always a Jan & Dean record. But Dean was on a lot of those hits.

Surf City was not their only appearance in the UK top 40. Heart and Soul was actually their biggest UK hit at # 24.

524
yes, I believe Heart and Soul was # 24 and Surf City # 26.
