England’s “Shindig!” magazine features a good informative article by Scott Paton about JAN & DEAN’s transitional period following Jan Berry’s life-changing 1966 car accident, covering the duo’s separate album projects “SAVE FOR A RAINY DAY” (Dean) and “CARNIVAL OF SOUND” (Jan), 1966-1968 — (Issue #62, 2017). Scott knew Jan in the late 1970s and worked for Casey Kasem’s "American Top Forty." Scott contributed to, and is quoted in, “THE JAN & DEAN RECORD,” by Mark A. Moore. Check out Scott’s article, and peruse “Shindig!” further to read Pat Curran’s interview with Moore (2010).

Dean's website seems to be down. Anyone know what's happening?

He's probably upgrading it.

The entire site has been upgraded on the back end, on the server end.

It should now load faster and perform better.

Due to a slight change in URLs, several image links had to be updated.

If you see any problems . . . broken image links, etc., please post them here.

On the Golden hits vol 1, did jan use the jan and arnie backing track and clean it up, and add deans vocals, or was it re recorded?

It was a completely new recording in 1962. The session is detailed in The Jan & Dean Record.

As far as I know, Gertie doesn't sell merchandise anymore.

Is the World Wide Discography still available?

Not Currently. It has to be re-entered into the new site, and that will take some time. Not sure when it'll be back up.

Unfortunately the liner notes and photo are the same for this release.  There may be an article about this new reissue in ESQ, talking about the new bonus tracks and other (still) unreleased recordings from that project, stay tuned...

I have many pictures of Jan working in the studio during the time we were putting this project together and maybe I can share some of them here if there's any interest in seeing them.

Hi Rob. Congrats on getting the re-issue out. You're welcome to post the photos here.

Here you go . . .

Oh you come to school in the slop of your dress a sloppy old dress
Your sweater is sagging and your hair is a mess
It's hanging in your face so you can't even see
Now when you come like that don't you ever talk to me

Oh Jeannette get your hair done
Why don't you ever get your hair done
Well if you want to please me can you ????????? you have to change your scenery
And get your hair done now

Oh I told you once and I told you twice
When you're around me you got to gotta dress really real nice
Well wear your those crazy black shoes just for play
But don't wear it 'em to school 'cause there's no track meet today

Oh Jeannette get your hair done
Why don't you ever get that hair done
Well I don't think it's fair that when you don't fix your hair
So get your hair done now

Well I was going to ask gonna take you to a dance the other night
But I got to thinking that I want to do it right
Get it done up in a bun or a pony tail
And if you do it right it ??????????????? well girl we'll really wail

Oh Jeannette get your hair done
Why don't you ever get your hair done
Well you're a really real cute girl so give it a whirl (Yeah)
And get your hair done now

I'm a gonna cut your hair off chick
