• all about the girls: lost girl group gems of the 1960s  (CD, £9.50)

    label: Croydon Municipal

    Renowned girl group collector Bob Stanley pulls 24 gems out of his collection.  It's a fabulous cross section of this much-loved sixties genre, ranging from the atmospheric and soulful - The Challengers' I Hear An Echo - to the magnificently bratty - Robin Clark's Daddy Daddy (Gotta Get a Phone In My Room).  There are lyrics straight out of a sitcom - The Chiffons' Doctor Of Hearts - and proto Britney mopes like Cathy Carroll's Poor Little Puppet (“the puppet in the mirror is me!”).  Teenage traumas, doop-daps, sha-la-las and doo- langs by the bucketload… TRACK LISTING 1.
