The Shangri-Las and the 60s Girl Group Garage Sound
This lengthy compilation not only contains many of the legendary Shangri-Las' greatest hits, but also some incredible obscurities by lesser-known acts. Stand-outs include: 'Melvin' by The Belles, a straight rewrite of 'Gloria' by Them so that it's now about some bloke called, um, Melvin; belly-dancing celebration 'Jelly Belly' by Nai Bonet; Robin Clark's brat anthem 'Daddy Daddy'; politically incorrect 'Dumb Head' by Ginny Arnell; Rowan and Martin's Laugh-In spin-off 'Sock It To Me' by Judy Carne, and the simply gorgeous 'Popsicles and Icicles' by The Murmaids. Great stuff.
