All About The Girls - Lost Girl Group Gems Of The 1960s - Various Artists

All About The Girls - Lost Girl Group Gems Of The 1960s
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

N.B: This title is released 25th September 2015 and will not be dispatched until this date.

•    Compiled by Bob Stanley, and making sense of the great American songwriters of the pre-rock era, this is the first in Croydon Municipal's Songbook series.
