Not sure if anyone can answer this one but maybe someone will know!

I've been listening to a couple of minisdiscs that I compiled from SOTS shows in 2000 (so the label says!). I seem to have 2 or three tracks by the same artist together more than once and I'm wondering did they used to do 3 in a row by one artist? Or is it just coincidence that I've edited several shows and that's how they have turned out?

I know I've not changed the order in which I've edited them on the disc which of course you can do.

H

PS Hope that makes some sense to someone!

They have played 3 in a row by the same person or group from time to time...maybe more often in the distant past than nowadays. I remember being amazed to hear 3 by my favourites, The Nice, some years back.

Thanks for that Tom! It's a long while since I played these discs and although I do sometimes move tracks I didn't think I'd done it on these 2.

I found a link to recordings of Kenny Everett's 'World's Worst Record Show', and he included the Vernons Girls 'You Know What I Mean'.

The Jess Conrad inclusions are atrocious! Steve Bent's I'm Going To Spain could be James Warren (Stackridge/Korgis) under a pseudonym.


I was disappointed when the record from the programme came out. Bent Bolt and the Nuts' "Mechanical Man" wasn't on it. I can only guess they couldn't get the rights to use it, even though it made the Top 20 when Kenny did a chart.

I was surprised that Peel favourites the Fall did a cover of 'I'm A Mummy' (Rod & Dor) as well as 'I'm Going To Spain' later on!

Esther & Abi Ofarim's 'Just One More Dance' wasn't the original version this morning.

After Brian had played Patsy Cline he said she had been a subject of a couple of bio--pics and named one as The Coal Miner's Daughter and I thought ....don't think so ....that was about Loretta Lynn starring Sissey Spacek ...wasn't it?.... Smile

You're right Becky it was Loretta Lynn. I missed that one although I heard the track.

Although it was on, I was busy yesterday morning and didn't hear very much of it.

Dropped a huge clanger with almost his first breath, though - Hubble Bubble Toil And Trouble was the follow-up to Manfred Mann's first hit, but that was 5-4-3-2-1, not Do Wah Diddy Diddy.

I must have switched on just after that Ron, another glaring error.

They are becoming far too frequent. I can only think it's the researcher who is making the errors as would imagine most it's at least partially scripted, a shame.

If these (far too regular) howlers are getting through, I wonder how many others are picked up by Brian when he's reading through his scripts?

I like that Brian plays little heard songs,from the sixties,as well as the mega hits ...I have never heard of Incredible String Band or the song by them that was played on this morning's show .... nice sound.

Re:Patsy Cline. An actress did portray her in 'Coalminer's Daughter' as she was a friend of Loretta Lynn's, but the Cline biopic was 'Sweet Dreams', which starred Jessica Lange.

Has Sissy Spacek's song 'John You Went Too Far This Time' been played? Mojo magazine mentioned this record, which she did under the pseudonym of Rainbo. The song was written, though not by her, as a response to the hoohah over the nude photo of John & Yoko on the 'Two Virgins' sleeve.

I liked the Sallyangie track, 'Lady Mary'. Sally Oldfield was once described as having 'the voice that Marianne Faithfull left behind' and it's very true of this track.

Great to hear the Kinks' See My Friend. I was in the sixth form when this was out and was ribbed a bit for liking it but I think it was ahead of its time.

I have yet to hear SOTS this week but look forward to hearing The Incredible String Band again. They played our college several times in the first half of the 70s and were such a good live band.

Did I mention that we've got a SOTS appreciation group going on Facebook. Our total of 147 members is by no means negligible but more are always welcome--up your alley?

Good to hear the Marbles' Only One Woman--again--but I wish they'd flip the disc and play By the Light of the Burning Candle.

Good idea for Three in a Row, less successful versions of big hits. Funny how Lulu's Here Comes the Night could sink without trace and yet only a few months later, Them could score a smash with the same song.

For some unfathomable reason, Look Through Any Window isn't on my Hollies Hits CD, so doubly pleasing to hear it.

Sad Simon Lives Again is a fine song but far too downbeat for a show closer.

Loved hearing Long John Baldry's "Let the Heartaches Begin" this morning. Brought back memories of a number of seemingly cataclysmic break-ups. Wonder where they all are now? Thankfully not with me. Laughing

Beryl Marsden's version of Breakaway brought back memories of the Tracey Ullman hit version in the 80's.

There were rumours that if you played the Ullman single at 33 rpm, it sounded like Mick Jagger singing.

Was 'Ooh Poo Pa Doo' the inspiration for the bit in Ray Stevens's 'Bridget The Midget' where she gets the audience to join in?

It's not often you get songs covered by The Who and Ray Stevens in a thread!

Oddities such as those are half the attraction of SOTS.

I agree,Ron.... I'm all for oddities but the Jim Dale version of Georgy Girl is one I'm happy never to hear again.. Smile

A fond farewell to A-Z of the Beatles after five and a half years. A thoroughly fascinating series. What can they come up with to replace it?

I always remember wishing I'd recorded the series when it ended the first time round, so I digilently started to record them digitally record them when the re-run started. And then I fell out of the habit of doing so.

Pity, because I can't imagine the whole series will be available commercially due to the licensing nightmare involved.

However, the whole series is the result of absolutely superb research and is a fabulous achievement for all involved.

The original take of Not Guilty could have been a theme song for a series about a loveable crook! Something from the ITC stables perhaps, with the harpsichord that's so reminescent of the Randall & Hopkirk (Deceased) incidental music.

The theme music to "Candid Camera"... Shocked now that's one I wouldn't have remembered or recognised, even though I watched the show on a regular basis.

I remembered the tune OK--a very funny programme.

Havne't yet made up my mind re SOTS Chronicles. I thought they would do a single year at a time and, as it was, it seemed a bit random. But let's see if it grows on me!

Re:Clint Eastwood - his 'I Talk To The Trees' was the b-side to Lee Marvin's 'Wanderin' Star'.

I bet he'll never forgive Spike Milligan for 'I talk to the trees - that's why they put me away...' as heard on the Goon Shows!

Not sure LEE, as I missed a couple of bits, between house and car and earlier on too.

A great improvement on last week's I thought. Interesting 3 in a Row of UK entries for the Eurovision Song Contest 63, 64 and 65. Will listen again if time permits.
