Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
Today is the first day of summer, so we're revisiting this Newsletter from nearly three years ago:
BONUS - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YdH9otLtwUs - Summertime Summertime - The Jamies, 1958
The Jamies were an American singing group, led by Tom and Serena Jameson...
The group's 1958 single for Epic Records, "Summertime, Summertime," reached #26 on the US Billboard Hot 100.
Both "Summertime" and its b-side, "Searching for You", are often described as doo-wop, because of their time period and their a-capella harmonies (with a harpsichord backing on "Summertime, Summertime"). However, both songs may also be described as pop versions of sacred harp styles, as the group started as church singers.
Several singles (many written or co-written by members Jameson and Feller) followed "Summertime, Summertime", none of them hits. In 1962, they re-released "Summertime, Summertime" and hit again, this time peaking at #38.
The song's fame far eclipsed the band's; The Fortunes, The Doodletown Pipers, Hobby Horse, Jan & Dean, The Legendary Masked Surfers, Mungo Jerry, and Sha Na Na all covered the tune, and it was used in commercials for Buick and Applebee's. It was also featured in the 1978 film, Fingers.
Tom Jameson died from cancer on July 19, 2009, at the age of 72.

From Ruth Ann Reece Horace ('67) of FL - 06/20/10 - "Special Angel":
Thank you so much for using the song "You Are My Special Angel" as a theme. That is the song my dad (Bill Reece) (31 Mar 1926 - 16 Nov 2009) used to sing to all his daughters and granddaughters from the time it first came out until just before he passed away. I did not have a copy of the words, but had heard them so much I knew them by heart.
I copied and pasted them and sent them to my 4 daughters, my sister, Kathy and her daughter. We all agreed this was like a message from Dad to all his girls at this special weekend for Dads everywhere.
OH, WOW! Thanks so much, Ruthie!
From Jerry Blanchard ('62) of VA - 06/20/10 - "Bee":
I think we all need a laugh this A.M.
Jerry Blanchard (Class of 62) of Va.
Wait for it, wait for it...
I see you
