VA - Sixties Girls [2014] (3 x CD's)

SIXTIES GIRLS

VA - Sixties Girls [2014] (3 x CD's)

First off, not the whole of 1960's are represented here - we get 60 good quality tracks from the years 1959 to 1962 spread across the 3CD's. The tracks that have been chosen are very good, they range from early U.S soul tracks, chirpy teen pop to Classy Brit and French offerings. There are some class acts on offer including Etta James, Barbara Lyn, Julie Grant to name a few. It's nice to hear a few very early outings of Nancy Sinatra and it's always great to hear anything by Francoise Hardy and BB. Overall, It's a great looking package with good sound quality. There is no booklet, just a one-sided intro with a few small pics spread over the inside.    Some brilliant recordings on this set. Nice to get both sides of Clodagh Rodgers first Decca single along with Kathy Kirby's first Decca release.  It's great to be reminded of just how many great girl-singers there were back in the Sixties. Unfortunately, quite a few of them never had the success they deserved. (Amazon)
