Watch for Jack and Misty's new upcoming release, "Just One More Song" on STARDUST!!!
Product and Sales Contact: Buster Doss (cbd@vallnet.com)

PETR VITOUS in Prague, in the Czech Republic, has a country music website you can visit, and Jack and Misty are featured! (He also has some nice things to say about this site as well!) Click here to visit!

Jack and Misty have announced that the name of their record label has been changed to Velvet Saw Records. Also, they're making copies of their "Back From The Dead" CD available to radio stations in the U.S. and overseas. All interested program directors should contact them at "Jack@jackandmisty.com" for all the details.

Speaking of the CD, Jack asked me to announce that they can now accept Paypal, the email money transfer service, on CD orders, and also, there's no more 6 to 8 week wait. They'll ship the CD within two business days of receiving the order, and it'll arrive in about a week, sometimes less.
On the subject of Jack's articles, by the way... When I originally posted "Our Rogues Gallery: The Artist", I inadvertantly chopped off part of a sentence. (Sorry 'bout that, Jack!) It has now been restored.
Remember this question from Misty Morgan?:

In the popular movie "Fletch", Chevy Chase walks into a record store and says to the clerk, "Do you have any Misty Morgan records?" It has nothing to do with the story at all. Friends have called and asked me about it, but it's a mystery to me, too.
I don't know anybody involved with the movie. Why would they just throw it in? The movie shows up on TV every now and then. Watch for it. It's there.

Misty Morgan

Well, somebody actually knows the answer! Jackie Loyd sez...

Dear Misty,
There were two versions of the "Fletch" film that are different because of the editing. In one of the versions, there is a girl in the background standing next to a camel (shades of "Humphrey!"), and Chevy Chase asks her if she is trying out for the Misty Morgan Look- Alike Contest!! The same girl is seen later in the same film on the sidewalk outside the record store right before the scene where he asks for the Misty Morgan records. In the second version, the question is edited out, as is the scene where the girl appears on the sidewalk outside the record store.
The version most commonly shown is the extremely edited version. The unedited version used to be available in video stores, and may still be available through a video collector.
Your friend and fan,
Jackie Loyd

P.S.: I'm so thrilled to be able to communicate with you and Jack because I am a big fan.

As are we all, Jackie. And thanks for clearing that up!

Jack and Misty's current single, "Rings Of Gold" (Song 1) now makes its descent after a week at the top. It debuted over a month ago (Nov. 24, 2000) on the Indie World Country chart at #39. Second week, it was up to #35. Week 3 (Dec. 9), it oonched up a notch to #34. Week 4, it moved up to #31. Week #5, it moved up to #28. Week 6, to #23. Week 7, it moved up another notch to #22. Week 8, it got closer to top 10 territory at #13; Week 9, #8; then #4; and then #2. Last week, it became their second Number One. Now, it's down to #7. But wasn't it fun watching the ride to the top? Let's hope their new single, "Just One More Song" equals that feat. Remember, you can keep track of your favorite indie single's progress by clicking here!
Speaking of chart positions... I've recently added something old to the discography: the chart positions of Jack and Misty's hits as they originally appeared in Billboard magazine! (If you ever wondered...)
For those of you who think the photos pages take too long to upload... I couldn't agree more. But guess what? The thumbnails section is up and operational! (I'm still trying to work one or two bugs out of it, but it is operational!) Until I can get a button up for it, click HERE!
By the way, I'll be adding a couple more photos and some new articles later this week.
We have banners! (That's the small version above all this stuff.) Feel free to upload (or download, whichever's the case!) it to your own site (its official name is "smbanner.gif"). Here's how:

And the essays keep coming! New this week: a newly-edited version of "Yule Revisited"; a true story called "Our Rogues Gallery: The Artist"; a comment about "Government"; and a new Christmas essay just in time for the new millennium, "Humbug!" You'll find them all on the Articles page. (Newer stories than that will be coming soon! Stay tuned...)
Remember this little guy?


Well, it's back, and now it's connected to a page that'll take you to a collection of Jack Blanchard's columns and short stories entitled "Misty Voices".

More lyrics have been added! Check the lyrics page.

This week, Jack and Misty's "Rings Of Gold" shipped to U.S. Radio stations. If you aren't hearing it yet, please contact your local station and request it. If they don't have it, tell them to send an email to Jack@jackandmisty.com, and he'll see that they get a copy.

This brings us to our first bit of trivia: Jack and Misty's original version of "Rings Of Gold" first appeared on the "Two Sides Of Jack And Misty" album back in 1972. With the U.S. release this week, it becomes the last song from that album to be released as a single, after 28 years!! Now THAT'S Trivia!!!
As of Fri., Oct. 27, 2000, we now have a new look! The wallpaper is based on a sketch by the multi-talented Jack Blanchard. I'm still putting all of the buttons in place, so I beg your indulgence while I get that taken care of. The buttons, by the way, are...

It's a 23-track collection on Velvet Saw Records, featuring eight new songs and well worth finding. Click here to hear cuts from the CD in RealAudio (scroll down to "Back From The Dead", "Song 1 Sampler #2" and "Song 1 Sampler #3", or check the discography for the full track listing.
