Dick Dodd & The Standells - "Mystery Baby" Demo 1989

 Demo
1989
 
 
   I just saw that Dick Dodd of The Standells died last year November 29th 2013. He was so nice to me. Here's the story how I met him. I was in a friend's car back in 1989 and I was playing a Standells tape. My friend says to me "hey I bought a car from one of these guys". I'm like yeah right... My friend goes on by saying the guy was once one of the Mouseketeers.  He tells me he bought the car at a Anaheim car lot. The next day I call the car lot looking for Dick Dodd. The lady who answered the phone was very nice and said he didn't work there anymore but would get my phone number to him. A  couple  days later I got a call back from Dick Dodd.  I'm sure I was trying my best to keep calm though I'm sure I felt the excitement of  a little kid whose birthday, Christmas & Easter all came on the same day.
I said I was a fan and asked if he could sign a few things for me. He was really nice and said "Sure, come on down Friday. I'm playing in Huntington Beach",  Me & my girlfriend at the time go down to some Holiday Inn or something on PCH and he's playing. He's singing a lot of cover songs with a couple of Standells songs thrown in. Dick & his wife come over to our table and look through the items during a break. They were both super kind to us and after a break he gets back on stage and says "Ed Halbrook has come down and brought a bunch of old Standells items. Go over and check it out". A bunch of people came by. I'm thinking man is he gunna sign a few things for me or not. It's getting a bit late. On a later break he comes back and signs a bunch of things I brought. I made this little photocopied fanzine of The Standells which he loved. As he is leaving he mentions that The Standells are getting back together for a KEarth show in 2 weeks and would I like to come along. He gives me his home phone number. I call him and ask if I can film the show. He says sure. I also ask if he could get Tony Valentino and Larry Tamblyn to sign my items as well. Again I get a "Sure why not".
Larry Tamblyn's brother is Actor Russ Tamblyn and he is the Uncle of Amber Tamblyn.

A day or two before the show Dick says to meet him at the venue which was in Torrence at the Oktoberfest site. We show up and Dick is there and gets us in. I brought a stack of the Standells fanzine I made and put a bunch out. People snapped the whole stack up in about 2 minutes.
I remember Dick laughing  and him saying to me "Told you those were cool, You could have sold them".  
 I set up the video camera on a tri pod. I sit down with Larry & Tony and ask if they would sing my items. What I remember really well was the 3 of them goofing on each other. I also remember KEarth's Mr. Rock & Roll Brian Beirne reciting his Standells introduction.  Right before the show Tony asks me to take some photos of them using his camera.  During there set I have the Video going and I'm taking photos as well. 
A couple of weeks later I mailed Dick a copy of their concert and in return he mailed me a cassette tape of some things The Standells and some other stuff he recorded. What was really cool was Dick taped a intro to me on the audio tape.  I was pretty knocked out. He was an amazingly cool guy.
 
On the above audio I put a Demo they were working on called "Mystery Baby". 1989... it sounds quite dated.
Cool intro huh???

A rusty David Carey on guitar says he hasn't picked up his guitar in a few years. He's been playing Bass in 2 different bands.  Great to see his purple Strat on the loose again!

This was my last time seeing Love & Terror. It was a accident as well. I saw Johnny twice in March 1986.  It must be quite a good spot to open for him. The first show in 1986 Guns & Roses opened that one. I kinda wondered how L&T got on this one. Me & Jim Maxfield went to this one together. I remember lots of blow. Kept me from being so drunk. The paranoia part was still a couple years away. Nice to have a lot of old friends round for a concert. Of the 5 times I saw Johnny this was by far the best one.  However sound wise the worst. TSOL blew the PA and there was a buzzing sound all through Johnny's set.

Here's the 3 Dave's rehearsing at the Carey Studio. Shame Mr. Young couldn't make it.  Great to talk to all 3 of The Daves last night! Dave Simms is going to be sharing some of his Circles & Squares stuff with us soon. I'm really looking forward to that. I always thought it was a shame they are only represented on my site with 2 handbills.

What a fantastic time last night was! A HUGE Thanks to David Cristofaro for putting it together. I look like I'm about 80 years old but last night it was like being 16 years old again.  I really hope it will happen again sometime.  Of course there is no replacing Gib & Danny but Steve & Kip did a amazing job.  I've been to quite a few concerts and I think that Brett Scott is the greatest Bass player I have ever seen. Drake great job as well last night!

John Young - "Words" Demo 2005

I got this song from our dear friend John.
 "another song done in my studio . all instruments and  vocals on all my demos are me"
 
 
 
Hmmmmm..... I listened to this one a few times. The song  "Right Where She Left Me" got me from the first play. This one it's a good song but I don't know if I'd go all light acoustic on it or .....
 
 
 
Anyways John I have been thinking a lot about you lately. I work at Vons grocery store and we have music played and there is about 3 songs I really want to get. I have only been able to find one of the songs so far.
 
The song is called "She Walks Away" by Phil Dutra.
 
video
 
Below is what I found out about this guy. This guy is a unsigned artist. Yet each day he's heard by millions of people. John, I think you should record "Right Where She Left Me" a little better and shop it around to these services like this guy. Now he has another song being placed in a Kate Hudson movie.     

I’m kind of a big deal in Walgreens, and Kroger…and a store called Meijer!

There is a great website, based in Amsterdam, called Tribe of Noise. They are, first and foremost, about the music and the music community that they have created. They have also been very successful at in store placement for their artists throughout the world. I have been lucky to have some of my songs placed through this service. Also, here in the U.S., CDBaby has placed my songs in hundreds of retail shops all over the country. It is a great way to get my music heard, since terrestrial radio play is nearly impossible for an unsigned artist to get.
What has been great about this is the feedback I’ve been getting on my youtube channel. People who hear the songs, especially “She Walks Away,” have been searching for it online and finding it on youtube. They are leaving the best comments! Here are a few of them:


Bob Chomos
They play this song on the Safeway music network overnights and I had to find out who sang it. I love it! I’ll have to check out more songs from you!”


LeAnna Otis
“Found it!!! This plays at work (Walgreens) all the time, and I wanted to find it. Finally did! We all love the song, and bust out singing whenever it comes on. Customers and all!! Great song :)”
