DON'T YOU JUST KNOW IT / Re: Apple Music lossless

Right now Iím paying Spotify but maybe I can check out a sample from Apple.
Something interesting that I noticed on Spotify and Apple. The original Jennie Lee is under Jan and Dean. If you look at Jan and Arnie. You can only get the other songs like Gas Money etc. thatís a lie. If I were Arnie. Id sue. But I digress lol

Good stuff Surferbee. I was a child in the 70s and discovered Jan and Dean from the movie. I bought Anthology and then a bunch more. It seems like Anthology should have charted. A lot of people bought that one. I knew several people that had it before I met them. Anyway. Thanks for sharing

Absolutely, Tom Hanks probably remembered Jan and Dean a little from his childhood. So it makes sense that he would buy Anthology and Gotta Take that One Last Ride amongst others during his high school days.

DON'T YOU JUST KNOW IT / Leader of the Pack
« on: August 15, 2022, 06:16:47 AM »
I hope someone can answer this. But this board has not been very active lol

I think I read somewhere that Leader of the Pack was influenced by Dead Manís Curve.  When I listen to Leader, I hear Janís bass riffs. Car squeaking sounds. Singer talking. Etc. so it seems obvious that there was an influence. Can anyone confirm this?

Iím not sure if you guys are into theatre but thereís an off broadway musical called Route 66. It includes 3 Jan Berry compositions. Little Old Lady. Dead Manís Curve. And Move Out Little Mustang. Pretty cool. You can listen to samples at

DON'T YOU JUST KNOW IT / Marvelous Wonderettes

My wife and I went to see the Marvelous Wonderettes at the Alabama Shakespeare Festival theatre. Before the play, music from 1958 was playing and Jennie Lee by Jan and Arnie was blasting loudly. I said. Hey thatís Jan! My wife told me to pipe down lol

Thereís a lot of footage we havenít seen. Jan and Arnie has several. Iím pretty sure there is a Heart and Soul appearance thatís not available.

That would be nice. But the release that Iím hoping for is the live Hullabaloo concert. I know we have portions of it in Filet of Soul. But Iíd love a new album release of that entire Jan and Dean set!

DON'T YOU JUST KNOW IT / Website is fantastic!

I just want to say that this website is awesome! Full of great information, pictures and interviews. At home I read the books. But when Iím at work or on the road, this site answers all my questions. Thank you Mark for all the work you put into this!

Iím not so sure how much ďFeel FlowsĒ did for The Beach Boys. I donít think thereís a lot of excitement around them anymore. Burton. You make a good point. People are moving past all that stuff. A movie featuring LOLFP would be great. There are other songs too. Even though Brianís name is on some of them. I think Dead Manís Curve would still get respect from a production stand point. Itís funny. The video I posted with Brian getting interviewed in 1964. He says he wrote all of Jan and Deans recent hits. Which was disappointing. But when he was listing the Beach Boy hits. She said LOLFP. He said thatís Jan and Dean. And she completely ignored that and mentioned it 2 more times. Almost like LOLFP was the only song she knew and he didnít write that one. Lol. He was getting aggravated.
Markís recent books will help set the record straight. A lot of people may not care anymore. But I do. Iím continuously getting amazed at Janís productions. Arrangements. And compositions. Even if most of the world doesnít care about it. I always will

This is an interview with Brian in 1964 from a clueless interviewer. Fast forward to about 2 minutes in. Unfortunately. Brian says heís written several Jan and Dean songs from Surf City on up. But itís still a cute interview and I donít think Brian was purposely trying to take full credit. It was a rushed interview

Yep. It always has been. Since the 70s.

Iím not against SFARD. I said I liked it. Itís just weird with all the hits available. Thatís all
