Britain's First Top Model - Twiggy, the Silver Screen Syncopators
This bizarre comp matches up a handful of sides recorded by charming singing model Twiggy in the '60s for the Ember label with some unrelated '20s style music by the Silver Screen Syncopators, presumably because of her starring role in the mock-period musical The Boyfriend. Forget all the SSS stuff, and just listen to the Twiggy tracks. Her vocals aren't exactly top-draw, or even top-drawer, but check out the backing. I don't know what the arranger was on when he wrote those, but I for one am having some.
