New Oldies - Oom Dooby Doom by Alicia Adams


  1. A couple of extra things from my notes: The guy who produced this record, Karl Engemann, was the uncle of Bob Engemann of The Lettermen. Both sides of this single were recorded at the very end of 1960 at Capitol Records in Los Angeles. Final overdubs were added on 4 January 1961. The flip side is called Love Bandit. A third song was recorded in that session, but never used. It was called Mister Right. Anyone have that master tape?

  2. Mister JoeKnapp. i've got a question for you.
    They tell me that Alicia Adams recorded the song SHEIK OF ARABY
    What do you know about this case
    Can you tell me In that label was recorded this song and wish year?
    Everyone can help me please - Thank You Very Much

    1. I can find no reference to any recording of The Sheik Of Araby by Alicia Adams. Jo Ann Castle said this was her "most requested song" when she was a regular ragtime piano player on The Lawrence Welk Show. I play versions of the song by Del Wood, the Ames Brothers, Jimmy And The Rebels, the Beatles, and Lou Monte.

  3. Mister JoeKnapp. Thank you for your answer. Fisrt I must to tell you I fan to the Rock,n'Roll music since a was young. That why my english is a little poor, sorry.
    I have been learning english by myself.
    Well, Now is clear for me Alicia Adams never recorded The Sheik Of Araby in
    Capitol Records. In This moment I'am working in a great selection of artists from Capitol 1959 to 1961 years. Your words have been very important for me.
    Thank you again.

  4. It's a Pity not know where Alicia Adams is. Something remember me a Janice Harper's case. Later was found by his son in an asylum old and with ahlzeimer , after having former with several fans, including me, a crusade in search of Janice.
    I think that again we must form a new crusade up to finding Alicia Adams.
