Universal does, however, still have all of the source material from the two concerts recorded at the Hullabaloo nightclub in December 1965, onto which the sound effects were grafted.

This is the version I'd like to hear. I had a bootleg CD that had both versions Jan submitted and I could easily hear why Liberty rejected it. I'd prefer to hear a traditional 'as if sitting in the audience' live recording start to finish, but this is still better than not having it out at all.

I would think there would be price guides out there somewhere...but in general an album not being still sealed decreases its value quite a bit

It would also explain why there were no skid marks between curb impact and the truck. The gardener noted Jan turned and looked over his shoulder to see what he had hit. He likely would've had far less than two seconds to look forward, see the truck, and take evasive action.

Just had a little time on my hands and went to Google Maps and did the street view of 807 N. Whittier where the accident occurred. Using the diagrams in Mark's book and the street view it would appear as if the curb that Jan first hit hasn't been repaired since that day. Of course, it may have been repaired and damaged again, but it is damaged in the photo.

I've heard both of Jan's versions of Filet of Soul and I must admit I'm not surprised by Liberty's qualms about releasing it. Of course, both were far superior to what Liberty eventually released. I've always thought that if the album would've just reproduced the actual Jan & Dean concert experience of the day (with the usual studio sweetening as is the norm to this day) it would've been a big success. But, maybe if the raw tapes still exist...

IMHO they sure got the right guys to play the parts...look pretty spot on all things considered

Yes, Mark...a great I see why it took so long.  It's going to take me almost as long to get through the whole thing! Hopefully, a copy will fall into the hands of Tom Hanks so he can make a proper movie.

I see that Amazon has a February 14th release that accurate?

I had that record back in my vinyl collecting days. I assume Zip Records was just some random bootlegger. I believe it was pressed shortly after the TV movie.  To my recollection (which is not always accurate these days) that's about the time I picked it up.

That list is a few years old and recently re-surfaced...if it's any consolation, even Hall & Oates failed to make it

If you're referring to the music itself and not the songwriting/publishing, I would presume EMI

Don't forget The Angels' I Adore Him - Jan didn't produce, but he co-wrote and it sure sounds as if it could be his arrangement.

DON'T YOU JUST KNOW IT / Re: Is Honolulu Lulu a surf song?
« on: May 01, 2015, 09:14:41 AM »
There are other factors as well. Honolulu Lulu peaked at #11 on the Billboard charts. If it's not a top 10 hit it often gets ignored by younger people in the industry who weren't born before these songs were hits. Yes, one stinking position does matter to them. When I lived in Honolulu the oldies station there didn't play it even though it mentions a bunch of cities in their listening area! Although, I did hear it once on the speakers while shopping at Ala Moana mall! But, to answer the question at hand, yes it is a surf song. Just listen to the opening line.

Sidewalk Surfer mentioned it was a local Oklahoma TV show...seems I read somewhere that they stopped into KOMA (The local powerhouse top 40 station back in the day) where Jan pitched his new record Only A Boy...they may have even played it.

Dean's Corvette can be seen in the On The Run TV pilot. It's a red 1966 coupe
