DON'T YOU JUST KNOW IT / Re: Youtube-thread
« on: November 28, 2010, 01:52:35 PM »
Okay....anyone want to see a very newer Youtube that just got put on a few days ago?  It's very special...i have never seen the show before....and it is CLEAR as can be:  (looks like around 1987...ya got Randell, Chris Farmer, Gary, ...Help! ...is that John Cowsill on drums? and is that Phil? or who on guitar next to Dean?--thanks)

JAN AND DEAN - TOMMY JAMES - GRASSROOTS

I don't think too many people have found it yet.  It went up November 21.

well put gentlemen....excuse me if 2dean2 is F and not M

lets also not forget dean gave jan a goal to aim for,and jan being jan got down to what he down best,he gave jan a life that he enjoyed,and a life that he was a master at,he could have said no thanks,and dean has even said he did enjoy the 2nd phase of the jan and dean story,even though they didn t have chart success they were one of the first bands to tour china,and made some wonderfull music after 1966,ocean park angel is still one of my favourte jan and dean songs,

yess....yes...and yes  And "Just One of Those Days"... and the others

THE TAMI SHOW / Re: Radio Interview with Dean
« on: November 17, 2010, 08:41:36 PM »
This dvd may be the "best quality"....which is excellent...however...

Does it have all the goofying around i've seen on bad copies....or are their in between pieces cut out?  Thank you.

( Sorry...for seeming like I disregard what you commented on already about  Jan and Dean coming out and doing their comedy between acts....i'm sure it's very possible they did do more than I've ever seen....it's just I know that there are poor quality copies of some of those things...and i am hoping that at least all of those (which definitely exist) are on this version. )  (because as for the other acts...except the Beach Boys...i am not that interested ) 

(Dean actually had a great portion of this on the trip to China video too--at least the parts with him and Jan)

THE TAMI SHOW / Radio Interview with Dean
« on: November 17, 2010, 07:16:10 PM »
...now i know Mark has pointed us towards many special happenings...and so perhaps I am repeating something we've already been directed to.  Just in case it was missed....there's a very cool interview from, i thnk it was, last spring:

(you can listen to it even)...

http://webtalkradio.net/2010/04/19/the-pop-culture-road-trip-%E2%80%93-hotels-and-rock-and-roll/

My favorite part...is when Dean says what his favorite part is/was of TAMI...
it's near the end of the interview.  I won't spoil it....but if no one comments on this or seems to be listening...i will modify this post and put the answer up in the future.

Question:  Does this video have ALL the Jan & Dean inbetween spots where they goof off?  Thanks.

SINGLES / Re: 1966 — Liberty / J&D Record Co. / Magic Lamp
« on: November 17, 2010, 06:16:38 PM »
Well...i find those records VERY interesting you guys have. 

Are you saying Dean put those special things right in the pressing of the groves, ripplewine?

And 11bees has a very rare copy altogether....hope you find out more.

Have your buddy check the others, please.  If not...I know someone very well in Portland.

SINGLES / Re: 1966 — Liberty / J&D Record Co. / Magic Lamp
« on: November 15, 2010, 04:53:21 PM »
Wow...this is such an interesting thread.  I have never seen any of those 45's.... besides the pictured ones here....11bees is saying he has a single of "Like a Summer Rain" that isn't one of those?

It never registered ...and i never paid attention to the details about what Dean did that summer  of 1966....releasing those singles, I mean.

I just heard him talking about "Louisianna Man" on the Endless Sky dvd....and that was really really special...how he felt taking what Jan had started, with that song they both had just loved...and add all the funny sounds, etc., to give Jan some more smiles....

Now, seeing that 45 here...that's cool.  (i know, i know.....I certainly should have noticed all this before....I also didn't realize how Dean had put out "Summertime, Summertime" with "California Lullaby" in July and August!!....i swear i did not know that!....and three times?! no less!  I only thought he did "Save For a Rainy Day" much later than that very summer.....i really do think that "California Lullaby" was an important song. 

Thank you for remarking on this thread today....Ripplewine

CARNIVAL OF SOUND / Re: Dean on the carinval of sound
« on: November 12, 2010, 10:38:13 PM »
Jason...at least Dean has provided his take, partially, in the message (oh so special).   I love the picture there too.  (I think that must be 1965, however.)

I haven't even listened to it yet...I just keep going over the liner....it sure causes me alot of feelings. 

(pause)....a LOT of feelings

But on the lighter side, as it says.....How Dean put  " NAJ & Dean "  on the label at Jan's direction...that is soooo cute!  Then we see " J & D " together....very eye catching!  I thought Dean was the designer!!  (no loss of IQ here, folks...the "establishment's" tests must be quite fallible)

****

And then the Endless Sky dvd came right after.

How special that is!  Dean....just sitting there...sharing his memories....how i hope there's more to come. 

And...the sweet collection of Jan & Dean pictures being shared as "California Lullaby" plays....i saw a review of "Save For A Rainy Day" just the night before this divd came....and the person commented "It's impossible not to think that that song was meant for Jan" 

(also love the interviews with David, Gary and Phil in the dvd...would haved loved hearing more on their experiences with Jan and Dean...well, i haven't finished Gary's part yet....supper called)

oh.....i miss Jan

Thank you to all those who bring this valuable ....er "priceless" rather, material to us.  I know it's quite a collaboration.  God bless you

PS

I know nothing of Jan’s IQ…

I do know he is interesting, fun, kind, thoughtful, considerate….clever, witty, hard working, showed a caring memory…directive… careful, particular, forgiving.

Shall I go on?

I think Dean is those things too.

(will I ever stop?)  (I hope so)   :-[
(maybe this will do it)
Let's put it this way:

Jan's IQ was obviously higher than mine.
He would not have spent this amount of time (or any) on this
and would have advised me not to
He would have told me to "be cool"

DON'T YOU JUST KNOW IT / Re: Another new book
« on: November 07, 2010, 11:21:51 AM »
Well, i looked this up right after I read your post.  There's just no info or description on it.  Did you pick up on any? 

295
I guess I have the right (responsibility even),  to change my post...and if the other person wishes to do so...I know they can too.

It just annoyed me too much ...even what I said in responding against the other posting person's remarks.

....sorry for siting the article here...  I like it

DON'T YOU JUST KNOW IT / Noticed another interview with Dean .... or two
« on: November 04, 2010, 09:33:46 PM »
 http://www.worldartfoundation.org/deantorrence.html

Here’s part of what Dean had to say…   

“I started missing Jan when he had his accident. He was never quite the same after that. After the accident he was almost a totally different person. The new guy I cared for, but we didn’t have anything particularly in common. It was fun to give him a vehicle to get out and perform live because he really loved it.”

The article has neat things in it that he describes about their funny ways before the accident…a few I’d never heard…like what they would wear (not exactly what the big wigs expected of them) and how they took surf boards with them to New York to do a Dick Clark show…putting them in a taxi and on the subway…so it is all worth reading.

And from another recent interview, Dean said,
“He was frustrated most of the time, and every day was a labor to him.  Hopefully, he’s in a better place.  His best times were on the stage.  If I could have kept him on stage 300 days a year, he probably would have been much happier.”

DON'T YOU JUST KNOW IT / Re: Youtube-thread
« on: November 03, 2010, 06:35:35 PM »
Whoops!

forgot to mention about the "California Special" piece with Glen's intro....just way too cool, since he was such a part of their music.... LOVE it!  And also, when Richard Hatch and Bruce Davison came up in a while and joined them onstage to sing....oh so special! 

(and now you know why I was off this board for such a while....i can't help myself from the effort I put into my writings....I must have rewrote my previous post five, six, seven times!) 

Well....youngest is off to college now...so much more time.

...oh well

DON'T YOU JUST KNOW IT / Re: Youtube-thread
« on: November 03, 2010, 01:40:11 PM »
 :D  What a GREAT thread....thank you for putting all these videos up!!
From the top...

Numbers:  1, 3, 4, 10, 11, 12, 13 and 14....show what I think the movie about Jan and Dean never fully got across....just how much fun Jan and Dean really did have....it trys so hard to get across Jan's seriousness....but in doing so....alot of what really was Jan and Dean was lost.

That is why it was probably very true that they were the "clown princes" of rock and roll....we get to see the "masters at work" like 2Dean2 said, in these cool videos....there are others too.

Jan and Dean themselves cracked up when talking about the time which is shown in "Aloha a go go 'You really know how to hurt a guy ' "  VIDEO #3 on this thread.....

  at a city once....Dean saying to Jan..."you know where I got that from?"  (looking at his watch during a concert)..."from when Jan pulled out the pocket watch....and then proceeded to knock over the tiki light!!" ....now this had them laughing ....talking about it...and made Jan remember that pocket watch too.  I then really wanted to see the video...Dean said it was out there...and here it is!  Thank you for putting it up.

How I wish, also, to see the full concert from the tv pilot...(the whole tv pilot shows their humor and lets us enjoy it)....AND video of the "Filet of Sole" concert.  PLEASE!

The early pieces of footage remind us of their earliest songs which I find how very good their voices sounded when they strictly harmonized together... what a wide range of music they gave us. 

I am very partial to the 1984 pieces....and appreciate those videos so much...being able to see Jan and Dean in all the stages of their career...each representing an important part....i feel the music did not take center stage in the Phase II.....something else came across even greater....

Regarding JDman's thought on the Mike and Dean one...I certainly agree with the frustration....and caught how when asked of Dean, how Jan was doing....it was passed by.... i guess that there may have been uncomfortableness playing a role in Dean's way of dealing with this interview.

« on: November 02, 2010, 05:19:03 PM »
Hi Jason...did you ever get your vinyl copy?  I just ordered "Carnival of Sound" from Rhino....hope it comes soon...on cd.  I was tempted to get the vinyl, but just couldn't get myself to pay twice as much....

I still also need the tribute Carnival of Sound....with Robbie Douglas

DON'T YOU JUST KNOW IT / Re: New Image Banners
« on: November 01, 2010, 11:54:53 AM »
Hi people....thanks for asking about me before....nice to be among the fans again,etc. 

I LOVE the pictures David has chosen to put...most of them are some of my absolute favorites. 

Commenting on some:  #1.  The one close to the left on bottom -2nd picture-Jan and Dean at that park MacArthur Park?  ...so cute...and every photo of that day (we've seen several, right?) are SPECIAL to the max.  Remember in ESQ Summer 2004...pages 30 - 35....there are several great shots of that day.  "Save For a Rainy Day" had some of them too, I think.  *love em*

2.  right next to it....Watts Tower day photos....also love 'em! (the picture i chose to put by my name here is from that day or days, I believe)

3.  next one....Jan and Dean playing chess...around 1967 or so....because such a shot is so rare....and it's just big time cute

4.  ALWAYS loved the next two.... the one of them by the car in the mid 70's...so handsome and then that next one on their big tour with Beach Boys by the plane....one of my very favorite shots came from that batch of photos....same moments of picture snapping....when Dean messes with Jan's hair...i use it for my profile pic on MySpace....can't be beat....way too cute.

5.  Last two on bottom.....plain HANDSOME

LOVE all on the top....Would have been neat if Dean could have used that cleft picture on the new CD / album....Carnival of Sound (which i just ordered and can hardly wait to get!) as you say he first wanted to.  Just such a terrific shot of them.  Last one of them on the top...by piano and on guitar....must have been taken 1965....think Jan's got the cast on

LOVE 'EM
