"Til Tuesday 9 Feb 21 0520. I'd overslept past Coast
to Coast with George Noory and Wall
Street Journal this morning was on with the passing of Mary
Wilson of Supremes. SO much will be said about her but
I have THREE points of insight: born in the Delta of Greenville
Mississippi, "named by it's founders for General Nathanael
greene, friend of George Washington"; Wikipedia entry and
distant cuzzin of my great-grandmother Highland. looked like she
ended up in Detroit after Dad joined the marines but my grandparents
and distant cuzzins still there. In the '90s on my WALKMAN, I
listened to the AUDIOBOOK of "Dreamgirl: My Life as
a Supreme" which I borrowed from central Square
library, Cambridge Massachusetts whilst married to my distant
cuzzin Linda garreau (RIP). lastly, looks like Miss Ross is THE
last surviving Supreme from classic '60s lineup; say hi to Flo
Ballard for me, mary!".....

day of Wodin 10 Feb 21. Lowell Street Studios has
with my 19 subscribers the Hopelessly Obscure covering
Thirteenth Floor Elevators "She Lives (In a Time All her Own)"
live at mavericks 15 April 83. Von Pierre le Coutre,
Flensburg Deutschland Groupie News he sprechen "Killer version!".
"She Lives" was a 45 off easter Everywhere (I bought the
8-track in 1975 pre-Gizmos Bloomington Indiana) b/w a cover of Zimmerman's
"its all over now baby blue". SecondhandSongs.com
DOES list other folk covering "She Lives" but mein
gut freund Pierre sprechen: "Yours is by far the best cover!
I couldn't even imagine covering it THAT way. Keeping the substance
but standing on its own" (I Kenne-ized both lyrics and music
as usual!) "Should be released as a 7"". labels?
jah? Nein? Liebe mein arsch? Equally rabid and even MORE Hopelessly
Obscure is Wayland Groupie News Schmel herbie Hind: "fa king
fa nom ma null", "like rosemaries fa king baby"....(sic)
(known to drive the WRONG WAY past Groupie Towers II doing "Pizza
Delivery Moves"!) One last bit of Lowell Street news:
Tom Hamilton 'tweaking" (VIRGO!) Radiobeat
Sessions ca 1983 from a Pep Lester cd.
My distant cuzzin Linda garreau and I bought a J. Genzale bootleg
up Salem once and he had a track "Bootleggin' the bottleggers";
I am inspired, thusly! Saint John of Thunder, in the name of the
father, the Son and the Holy Gizmo
