The Dore Album

Release: Dore 101 - Year: 1961 - Produced By: Herb Alpert/Lou Adler

The Singles...

Baby Talk / Jeanette Get Your Hair Done (#10 - 1959 - 12 Wks In Chart - Produced By Herb Alpert & Lou Adler)

Jan & Dean's very first single to reach the top 10 may have been a bit of a comedy record, but after all is said and done it was a great record to hit the charts in 1959 and fitted in well with other chart-hits of the day. This record is a fresh sounding piece of doo-wop that marked the start of Jan & Dean's too-short chart career.

There's A Girl / My Heart Sings (#97 - 1959 - 3 Wks In Chart - Produced By Herb Alpert & Lou Adler)

How can a song this great sounding fall so short in the hit-parade of the time? Looking at the track now "There's A Girl" is a stunning bit of 50's doo-wop, that, with the right promotion should have done alot better. But as seems to be that with the early Jan & Dean singles that this was not always the case. A great song with great production and a quite unbelivabley fantastic "B" side to boot, and one that should be in every Jan & Dean's collection

Clementine / You're On My Mind (#65 - 1960 - 6 Wks In Chart - Produced By Herb Alpert & Lou Adler)

Another chart-hit by Jan & Dean, and a follow up to their #97 previous hit "There's A Girl". The single version of Clementine was slightly remixed to the album version in that it had an alternate beginning with a great echo effect.  A fast and melodic rocker, this is one of Jan & Dean's biggest "could-have-been's" in the sense of a major hit single.
