DON'T YOU JUST KNOW IT / Jan's Condition after the accident
« on: August 11, 2022, 09:15:54 PM »
Hello peoples,

I just listened to the Steve Barri thing on xm radio. I did enjoy the content. He covered some good topics, Of course he mentioned Jan & Dean but no plays during the hour. Here's my question to you hardcore fans. And i admit i ponder a lot while i'm driving and such.. I HONESTLY believe LOU ADLER was responsible for what went on after the accident. Sure if a hit came out of Jan's recovery that would be a Grand Slam so to speak but in reality of the situation He (LOU) believed Jan in the studio at this time was PURELY THERAPUTIC. Like a big brother watching his younger now handicapped brother try and get back on the horse. In his heart he knew the act was over. I love Jan & Dean. I'm not trying to cut short that some people didnt believe Jan had something left but I do believe everything went through LOU. They had absolutely NO( WARNER BROTHERS ) label push whatsoever. It kept Jan somewhat busy and kept him reaching for the stars. What do you guys think??? AS the world as we know crumbles be kind to each other. God bless. Burton

Hello folks,
Its been awhile. I agree with everyone here, we all would love to hear this material from this time period. all shined up and sounding pretty. Hate 2 be the party pooper but in all honesty it will probably never happen. The base is gone for Jan & Dean music. I just turned 50. The base is dying everyday. History got skewered with Brian Wilson getting all the credit of writing the boys material. And dean like Mike Love tried so hard over the years to make himself more important than he actually was it really knocked Jan down for getting the respect he deserved. THE dean REMAKES really fucked Jan over in my opinion. Most of them SUCK. I know dean is a great guy and he was there for all of the ups and downs. Took care of Jan through faze 2. THERE IS NO WAY ANY RECORD COMPANY WOULD MAKE MONEY OFF THIS PROJECT. I'm not trying to be a dick, Lou Adler and Dean don't care about Jan's legacy any longer. It was good while it lasted. the only way we might get some interest in the dynamic duo again is if a mainstream movie during the intro or sometime during the movie played the first few bars of LITTLE OLD LADY FROM PASADENA.. why because Brian has nothing to do with that record. Had it not fought the other Jan & Dean singles on the chart at the time it could've been another number 1 and should've been. Or if one of us hits the powerball and buys up the masters for release. Were talking maybe 5 to 15k fans world wide now if were lucky. Anyway fellows good post. Just my 2 cents. not worth a penny. lets be real. god bless.

Hey Mark
I can't believe how much info you have in this book. I'm blown away with every detail.
I've skipped around from the accident to surf city being recorded. I was up til 3:45 am this morning reading about Jan driving in april of 67.
Just a Great effort. Really a super job. So happy my wife ordered from McFarland.
Thanks for time and energy put into this. Hope this maybe will get a box set out for Jan & Dean.
I would love to hear Jan's version Of Shut Down that's in the vaults.
Thanks again       B

DON'T YOU JUST KNOW IT / Re: The Bob Greene Book

Hello Jan & Dean Friends

I'll agree that the bob greene Book wasn't that great of a read but it's ok for the average fan.
 I don't know mark passmore personally but his Jan & Dean book is a good read for the average fan or even a hardcore fan. It covers a lot of stuff after the accident. Most people don't care about the pictures in the book because most fans seen those pictures before.
Mark Moore has all of jan's stuff from gertie and jan's family so his book should be informative when it's finally done, But i still do not think it will get them in the HALL OF FAME.
Mark Moore's tribute to Jan CD got Rhino handmade or andrew sandoval to put out Carnival of Sound which was awesome to finally have on cd in clean, clear Sound. But it didnt even sell out the 1500 cd/album double pack they offered. You know why, Because the fans are dying. No one really knows who jan & dean are anymore. Just speculation, But maybe 10,000 world wide and 5,000 here in the states. I don't know really but Mr. Walleye and black see if you guys know So much why don't you fellas write a tell all book about Jan & Dean. I would buy it. So just a little something to ponder. If everything else is junk. Put something out that's top notch. Just my too sents. b

this version is from the "oddities" album which is the first time i had ever heard the song. Loved it ever since. b

check this one out. i love this one. i posted it.

Hey Mark,

The book has no other credits. just says it was printed in USA Lexington, KY.
isbn # 9780989334440 volume 1  and isbn #9780989334464 vol 2.  then all scans of fanzines and different articles through the years. What you see on amazon is all that is listed in both forewards. Hope it helps. Its a nice collection of stuff. b

if I may ask Mark? what is the Alan Clark approach? they have a J&D book by Alan Clark but its 50 bux on amazon. Anyway im happy with this purchase. I searched on amazon after the holidays and found these books and my wife wanted to get me something I liked so I let her purchase them for me. All the HARDCORE fans probably already have this stuff. I just wish someone would do like a 10 or 12 disc Box Set. Early stuff, outtakes and newer stuff too. Oh and a LEGIT Deadman's movie would be nice too. b

DON'T YOU JUST KNOW IT / Jan & Dean Archives Volume 1 and 2 on amazon

I just got these books for my birthday. They are on amazon for 18.89 a piece. Check them out. Not sure who did them but its a nice addition to my J&D collection. Its photo copies from fanzines over the years from b4 and after the accident. The 66 tour book that you see on jans corvette from the accident is in it as well. It's always nice to have something new to look at concerning J&D. Nice shiny covers in color. I also just picked up a copy of the Rolling Stone Paul Morantz article. Anyway check them out if you can. B

I agree with Mark.. Not worth the money. I have them both(vol. 1&2) and it was most of the stuff we all know about (most j&d fans). Not to upset Mark Moore but buy the Passmore book. I know its not all correct but most of the stuff was good to read about. Just my opinion... Passmore book is like 26 bux. lot cheaper than 127. b

It SO sad to hear Dean's remakes of the original hits. Total Shit. and people think that stuff is Jan's productions. I listen to internet radio and hear those remakes and it makes me sick. Thank the higher powers they used the originals hits in the Deadmans Curve movie. That could have really screwed things up even worse then it is now. You can listen to the originals in different stereo mixes and mono and the surf to drag mixes and its awesome to listen to. I listen to deans remakes and I want to run into a brick wall. just my opinion. b

Wow so cool
