You wouldn’t think the guy responsible for the ultimate bump- and-grind anthem “The Stripper” would also have arranged and conducted one of the all-time favorite Christmas albums of all time, but that just goes to show just how versatile a musician David Rose was. Produced by David Axelrod, this 1968 release has been a fixture atop holiday music fan’s wish lists—in fact, this album was so popular that Capitol reissued it under the title Little Drummer Boy: Christmas Favorites Conducted by David Rose, and music from this album has long been prominently featured inside Disney theme parks at the Main Street U.S.A.

? and the Mysterians

ABKCO Records, in conjuction with Real Gone Music, is proud to present the two albums released by Question Mark & the Mysterians on the Cameo label, pressed on 180-gram vinyl with the original artwork intact! Hailing from Saginaw, Michigan, this group of Mexican-American teenagers will forever be anointed as the garage band’s garage band with all the bonafides collectors of ‘60s cool cherish—the name, derived from a Japanese horror film; the sound, an insistent, three chord beat powered by that unmistakable Vox organ tone; and, of course, the sunglasses-shod Question Mark himself, who claims to have been born on Mars and lived among the dinosaurs in a past life. Though their signature hit, “96 Tears,” ranks as one of the most recognizable and beloved songs of the ‘60s, their two original albums have never come out on LP in this country since their original re- lease...till now!

• The Two Original Albums Released by the Legendary Garage Band on the Cameo Label

• Reissued on 180-Gram Vinyl, Remastered from the Original Tape Sources by Bob Ludwig and Lacquer Cutting by Carl Rowatti of TruTone Mastering

THE GIRLS FROM PETTICOAT JUNCTION - SIXTIES SOUNDS

  • All in debut stereo

THE GIRLS FROM PETTICOAT JUNCTION - SIXTIES SOUNDS CD

When the classic comedy series Petticoat Junction premiered in 1963—on the heels of its sister series The Beverly Hillbillies—it became an immediate hit, ranking #4 for the season. The series ran for over 200 episodes through 1970 and became a popular fixture in syndication,TV Land and other nostalgic outlets.

Part of Petticoat Junction's huge popularity could be traced to the three lovely ladies who starred as sisters on the show: Linda Kaye Henning as Betty Jo Bradley, Lori Saunders as Bobbi Jo Bradley and Meredith MacRae as Billie Jo Bradley. Before there were Charlie's Angels, these girls were subtle sex symbols of the '60s, appealing to the guys while also being idolized by female viewers. 

During the long run of the sitcom, these "Hooterville Honeys" become a musical act, appearing at night clubs, fairs and other venues as well as television music-variety-talk programs with Johnny Carson, Ed Sullivan, Mike Douglas, Pat Boone and Dick Clark.

In 1968, the Petticoat Junction gals hit Liberty Recording Studios with music producer Joe Saraceno (The Ventures and The Sunshine Company) and the group of Los Angeles studio musicans known as the Wrecking Crew to lay down slices of quintessential '60s pop for Imperial Records. Among the selections were Neil Sedaka's country girl-meets Hollywood tune “Wheeling, West Virginia,” the Spanky & Our Gang favorite “If You Could Only Be Me” and covers of Jimmy Webb's classic “Up, Up & Away,” the Youngbloods' anthem “Let's Get Together (Love One Another)” and the jaunty Innocence hit “There's Got To Be A Word.”

THE GIRLS FROM PETTICOAT JUNCTION - SIXTIES SOUNDS compiles the long-unavailable and highly-collectible Imperial singles onto an album for the very first time, including previously unreleased tracks and debut stereo versions for every recording. Among the bonus material is a rare 1967 Capitol Records single by Meredith MacRae (“Who Needs Memories Of Him, Goodbye Love”) and the Petticoat Junction theme song sung by original TV series vocalist and co-composer Curt Massey, complete with train whistle.

This new CD will be cross-promoted with the upcoming publication of Petticoat Junction - The History of Hooterville (Bear Manor Books) and DVD releases of Petticoat Junction and The Beverly Hillbillies. Additionally, music videos of key songs will promote the album online and Linda Kaye Henning will be available for press interviews.

Petticoat Junction will also be saluted with a tribute at the Paley Center for the Media in Beverly Hills to coincide with the release of the CD and book.

Track listing:

1. IF YOU COULD ONLY BE ME; 2. WHEELING, WEST VIRGINIA; 3. GOODBYE LOVE; 4. THERE'S GOT TO BE A WORD (previously unreleased); 5. RAIN (previously unreleased) - with The Sunshine Company; 6. I'M SO GLAD THAT YOU FOUND ME; 7. WHO NEEDS MEMORIES OF HIM; 8. UP, UP & AWAY (previously unreleased) with The Sunshine Company; 9. LOVE ONE ANOTHER (Let's Get Together) (previously unreleased); 10.
