I really like the Carol Slade, as it is a nice piece written by Van McCoy. I also know and have The Showmen, Taurus and Leo, Lee Rogers, Accents, Bunny Paul, Whispers and Jaynettes. I've never heard nor seen Cupit, Papa's Results, and Rasputin Stash. I've seen the Cha Cha Hogan, but never heard it, and don't know what it is. I assume all four of those I don't know are too modern for me (e.g. out of my era). Are they from the 1970s? Are they Northern Soul sounds?

I never cared for the Jaynettes, but I LOVE the Showmen, the Accents and the Lee Rogers records!
I can't get into a lot of Lee's stuff, but "How Are You Fixed For Love?" is fantastic. It was released with three different flips--I have the one with his version of Danny White's "Cracked Up Over You" on the other side, and it's all the Lee Rogers I'll ever need! Flip it over and give it a listen if you got it.

Happy 4th to all!
Now, I only know a few of these songs. Now can anyone here explain to me exactly what the hell The Jaynettes were talking about in that song??? I once saw a site where they were giving all types of answers: lesbianism, a cheating boyfriend. Does anyone have a remote idea about what that song was about?? I'd love to hear your ideas.

Lesbianism, I won't say that, but cheating boyfriend, YES !!!

On the Jaynettes, try this....
The article talks about the lesbianism theory.
Pentangle has a nice version of the song. Has anyone heard Iron Butterfly do it? It's out there somewhere.....

"What Will I Do" was a great track from The Whispers LP "This Kind Of Lovin'" Also enjoyed "Bright Lights & You Girl", and "I"m The One For You" from that album in 1981.
This album seemed to be a flash for me because if I recall corectly, "Love Is Where You Find It" was released literally right after this one in late '81, and it had so many great cuts overshadowing "This Kind Of Lovin'".
