Another potential winner from a label specialising in them – Marylebone Beat Girls 1964-1967.

Two covers and two editions, one the CD collection and the other the vinyl set. But both covering the similar ground. This is the follow-up to the recent Love Hit Me! Decca Beat Girls and Scratch My Back! Pye Beat Girls, offering more girl pop, this time from the EMI group of record labels – Parlophone, Columbia and HMV – which were based in Marylebone in the heart of London’s West End.

According to Ace:

Most of the female acts signed by EMI were teenagers completely tuned in to the current pop trends. Scottish duo the McKinleys, R&B club habituée Julie Driscoll (cover star of the vinyl version), talent show winner Billie Davis (the CD cover girl) and Midlands pub singer Beverley Jones took original material from London’s Tin Pan Alley and American covers and gave them an abrasive, vigorous kick that made for fabulous 45s.

The pick includes Dancing Yet, a ‘Dobie Gray-style discotheque number’ by Liza & the Jet Set, Like The Big Man Said by Toni Daly, a cover of Italian star Caterina Caselli’s L’uomo D’oro’ with ‘edgy’ English lyrics and Billie Davis’ groovy gender-switched update’ of Chuck Willis’ Whatcha’ Gonna Do.

The LP is 180g orange vinyl in a heavy duty sleeve with comprehensive notes and rare photos on the inner bag. The CD is 24 tracks and with a ‘bumper booklet featuring expanded notes and extra photos’.

Both are available to order now ahead of the 30th June 2017 release date. Track listings below.
