We first contacted Jean Thomas back in 2003 after reading her profile in John Clemente’s excellent book ‘Girl Groups’. Little did we know that we would be launching her web site as a focus for 1960s New York music research in 2007.
Not only is this a celebration of her music and her story but it is a journal that will collect stories and information about the creation of music in the city during the 60’s and Jean and Don’s part in it and the people they worked with.
We will do this around the detail of Jean’s music recording diary, the first part of which is published there. You’ll see what we know and don’t and the future will unveil what is out there to be found.
It is a dynamic and evolving site and we don’t know for sure how big it will grow but that will be part of the fun and the research. Contributions will be welcome and acknowledged/credited and we hope the Spectropop pages will link to us and contribute to our research.
We will announce regular additions as information comes in here so subscibe to this blog for updates. We hope you enjoy what Jean has made available for us all to enjoy. What more we find is up to you.
