DON'T YOU JUST KNOW IT / Marvelous Wonderettes
« on: June 08, 2022, 01:58:31 PM »
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

DON'T YOU JUST KNOW IT / Brian Wilson
« on: March 17, 2022, 03:52:35 AM »
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

DON'T YOU JUST KNOW IT / Spotify
« on: February 28, 2022, 06:42:16 PM »
On Spotify. Pocket full of Rainbows by Dean is on the Top 5 for Jan and Dean. How is that? Donít get me wrong. I like Deans album. But with Drag City. Honolulu Lulu. Baby Talk. Etc. available. It doesnít make sense

DON'T YOU JUST KNOW IT / Spotify hack?
« on: July 24, 2021, 05:06:56 AM »
On Jan and Dean Spotify thereís a song called No Slack. Itís a terrible rap song credited to Jan and Dean. Itís not them of course. Weird

DON'T YOU JUST KNOW IT / Hollywood Eden
« on: April 08, 2021, 07:32:41 PM »
I just read Hollywood Eden. I endorse it because it gives Jan Berry the credit he deserves as a great producer and as a pioneer of the West Coast sound. The Jan and Dean Record was used as a reference. However. The author relies heavily on recollection of artists which results in a lot of BS as well. Like the whole thing about who else wrote Surf City. And the whole ďJan was an assĒ thing. But overall I enjoyed it. It got me fired up for Markís new book which I canít wait to get!!!

DON'T YOU JUST KNOW IT / Dean Martin Show 1st episode
« on: February 07, 2021, 10:26:29 AM »
Jan and Dean appeared on the Dean Martin Show. 1st episode. YouTube has this full episode but Jan and Dean are not there. The other artists from that show are in this video. Any reason they cut Jan and Dean out? https://youtu.be/kcvObSdGVT4

DON'T YOU JUST KNOW IT / When itís Over
« on: January 23, 2021, 05:11:22 AM »
I just purchased the portrait. Thank you for posting Mark. I have a question:  you mentioned in the post that When itís Over and Itís A Shame weíre written by Jan and Jill. Did Jan co-write those?

DON'T YOU JUST KNOW IT / Fiddle Around
« on: December 29, 2020, 12:28:19 PM »
Thereís a claim on Facebook that Dean remixed Fiddle Around for the single release. Is there any information on this? The guy claiming this has said other things that I donít think are correct. But I donít know about Fiddle Around

DON'T YOU JUST KNOW IT / LSU Pregame
« on: December 26, 2020, 05:54:43 AM »
This is a strange post. I know. But this LSU pregame song gives me chills before a game. I grew up with this song and my LSU tradition. I just read that itís arrangement happened in 1964. I canít help but wonder if the LSU band leader had Dead Mans Curve in mind when he came up with this one. Not sure Iíll ever know.

DON'T YOU JUST KNOW IT / Maps
« on: July 23, 2020, 05:05:25 AM »
Mark, your level of detail is unmatched. I love the maps. I wish I would have had access to them when I was on Sunset Blvd last summer. I had no idea that I was walking around Dore records and Liberty. I'm pretty sure I went to a coffee shop that may have been Dore.

Thank you for your attention to detail and your tedious hard work. Can't wait for the new book!

DON'T YOU JUST KNOW IT / Cool video

This is pretty cool. His information is not completely accurate but cool none the less. He gives Arnie full credit for writing Jennie Lee. Thatís a common mistake
