She's All Right With Me: Girl Group Sounds Usa

She's All Right With Me! Girl Group Sounds Usa 1961-1968

Release date: July 03, 2020
For those who prefer to own their music on vinyl, here is an eclectic and gorgeously packaged selection of American girl group artefacts from the 60s. The album opens with 'Whirlwind' by producer Gary Paxton protégées the Rev-Lons, the trio's final recording but also their best, and closes with 'He's All Right With Me' by the Mirettes (the Ikettes incognito). Other highlights include the Supremes-style 'Cupid's Got A Hold On Me' by the Belles; the Sweethearts' recording of 'Beauty Is Just Skin Deep', a song originally intended for the Ikettes; and 'Summertime Is Surfin' Time' by the Surf Bunnies - three more terrific instances of the West Coast girl group sound. But not all the tracks here emanate from that part of the USA - viz 'Mr Everything' by New York-based Little Eva Harris and little-heard examples from the Pets, Tren-Teens and Lovettes, all from New Jersey. Felice Taylor - here with her unissued-at-the-time 'Sing Me A Love Song' - graces the eye-popping jacket, which houses a colourful inner sleeve featuring a 3,000-word track commentary and an array of illustrations. Compilation and notes by Mick Patrick.
