Vinyl release: Girl Group Sounds USA 1964-68

Officially titled Would She Do That For You?!, this is subtitled Girl Group Sounds USA 1964-68 and is a vinyl-only release.

That release is via Ace Records, so quality pretty much guaranteed you would expect.

As that title says, this is a collection spanning the years 1964 to 1968, 14 great examples of the US girl group sound.

Highlights include the Gary Paxton-produced ‘Earthquake’ by the Fashionettes, Cincinnati duo the 2 Of Clubs’ version of Garnet Mimms’ ‘Look Away’, the Motown-esque ‘This Couldn’t Be Me’ by the Sweethearts, and ex-Teddy Bear Carol Connors’ unlikely cover of Bob Dylan’s ‘He Belongs To Me’.

The inner bag features a 3,000-word track commentary by compiler Mick Patrick and with ‘illuminating’ quotes from Gigi Jackson of the Charmaines, Patti Valentine of the 2 Of Clubs and Darlene Love of the Blossoms.

If this is your kind of sound, the LP is available to order now, priced at £17.26. It lands on 31st May 2019. Tracks below.
