Markís certificate
« on: December 17, 2022, 08:13:07 AM »
Congratulations Mark on the recognition given to your biography of Jan
So well deserved. Iíve been an advocate for Jan from the late sixties when I first heard Jan and Dean on the radio. They were not played much in the uk and many of their albums werenít released here. I had to import them myself. No internet / no Amazon then. I contributed a bit to Ripped Baggies although my name was always misspelled.
It took you though and your two brilliantly researched and written books to ensure Janís legacy.
Many, many thanks

Thanks, Surferbee.

I'm grateful for the ARSC's recognition of the research that went into the book.

I'm now in the process of transcribing and publishing some of Jan's best original music scores and charts from the 1960s, the actual documents used by the Wrecking Crew to record the original songs by Jan & Dean (and other artists). Slowly but surely, we're getting Jan's behind-the-scenes work on the public record.
