I make many typos (as folks here know) though most of them are what I consider minor. I even made a couple in my email to the Santa Monica Observer but, thankfully, they corrected them before quoting my message.
My worst typo? Probably listing Classic Four lead singer as Denise Yost on the website with which I am associated with. It was up there that way for six weeks before someone noticed my embarrassing goof. (My website associate is Denise Ferri so it is understandable what I did.)
Having also interviewed Linda Scott, also very much "under the radar screen" though I do know where she lives, I can tell you that she was also disillusioned about the music business, though maybe not for exactly the same reasons that Marcie Blane was. Bill Buster, who put out a Linda Scott compilation on his Eric label, told me that he was trying in vain to contact Linda.
A company called Golden Sandy Records put out a 35-track Kathy Linden CD. Neither of us know for certain where the company (now defunct, I believe) was based. But she told me that she never got a dime. That is hardly surprising. She told me that there's a soundalike version of "her" version of "Goodbye Jimmy Goodbye" out there (it's on YouTube and on bootleg CDs) which is not her! That remains a big mystery to me.
My Dapt recording of "Flip Over You" appears on four CDs, in some cases along with tracks by "the other" Ronnie Allen (who recorded for San Records). I never got a penny in royalties but got about 15 minutes (or maybe more accurately 15 seconds) of fame from time to time.
Well, Fred, you get the picture!
