DON'T YOU JUST KNOW IT / Johnny Rivers At The Whisky a Go Go
« on: July 25, 2015, 04:28:20 AM »
Just came across this Johnny Rivers Lp on my recent visit to the record store. Jan and Dean are quoted on the back cover of the Lp.
Jan "Johnny turns Sunset Boulevard into an adult Dick Clark Show"
Dean " Right "
I listened to the record and his version of Memphis sounds a lot like the J & D version on Little Old Lady. I think the Johnny Rivers version came out first. Record manager Lou Adler engineers Howe/Linstrot.
There also mentioned and take part, from what I've read, on a Jean King live in the studio. Haven't got  a copy, still trying to track down a clean copy.
In the Simon and Garfunkel box set they also make reference to Jan and Dean rather than the Everly Brothers. I think the liner notes for Bridge Over Troubled Waters state something like   "They go all out like Jan and Dean..." ? Maybe making reference to Baby Driver track. Personally I can't hear J & D in there.
And finally Andrew Loog Oldman mentions Jan and Dean in the opening sentence for the liner notes he wrote for a Chesterfield Kings album from 2007.
Not that Jan and Dean need any confirmation of their credibility.
Until next time

It's well done. Not one you get just to complete the collection. Some of the songs; So Here I Go Again, Oh the love inside me, sound like the 60s Jan Berry to me.
Until next time

That was all good for a hard core Jan & Dean fan, Blacksea but for a second generation fan it missed the mark.
I'm actually a second generatiion fan. Never heard of Jan and Dean until I saw the movie, summer holidays December 1979, twelve years old at the time.
Until next time.

I think it was reissued around 80 or 81 it had a lot to offer by way of rare tracks at the time, where else could you get an official release of Yellow Balloon. As far as side four is concerned its the first and last time we get a chance to hear what Fillet Of Soul may have sounded like, on an official release, had it been released in 66.
Until next time

I'll have to disagree, the eclectic mix of songs still makes interesting to listen to People who aren't Jan And Dean fans go on about this record. All the hits were covered in the two best of releases in 75.
Until next time

DON'T YOU JUST KNOW IT / Chesterfield Kings - Tell'em I'm Surfin
« on: July 17, 2015, 04:47:52 AM »
There's a great version of Tell'em I'm Surfin on Chesterfield Kings Surfin Rampage Double Lp from 1997. Some good covers of some surf classics not the usual all the hits type Lp. Band originates from Rochester New York.
Until Next Time

It's referenced in a pop culture book , External Combustion, made the Pop Schlock - Bad Taste Is Timeless Section.
"In imagining objectionable song subjects, not even the most perverse mind would touch upon women dying in childbirth. Yet, at least two reasonably well known pop songs have dealt with this grisly topic. Jan and Dean who had already blotted their copybook with the right wing The Universal Coward, cut a 1965 album track called A Beginning From An End. During a spoken interlude ( always a danger sign) Jan expounds; I can still recall that stifling....."
Glenn A Baker.
Jan and Dean also made the Right Wing Pop section of the book with Universal Coward and Only A Boy.

Lol dude just laugh it off.
Did she have a problem working under Jans direction I don't know where I read something like that. She has a jazz bass background from what I've read maybe she thought the Jan and Dean sound was to basic for her.
Dude what an ego, deleted for not agreeing with her, lol.
Until next time

I can't remember where I read something about this release, Jill Gibson wasn't happy about the release and the single had to be recalled. Might have something to do with an incorrect song being used.
Until next time

That's The Way It Is, Jan's best effort in the 70s, an excellent track. Not a bad comp, quality OK. Well worth getting this one.
Until Next Time

DON'T YOU JUST KNOW IT / Command Performance Lp

listening to the Command Performance Lp it would be neat to hear it without the crowd noise, leaving all the J & D dialogue in.
Until next time.

I was trying to locate a couple of the one way releases on ebay and came accross this one. Try not to do this with your J & D records.
Until next time
