4.0 out of 5 stars Sisters recordings that Phil didn't lose 3 Feb 2010
By R. Gwen
Format:Audio CD
The CD says it's the first time that the A & B sides of all 5 Paris Sisters Spector-produced singles have appeared together anywhere. Phil also recorded an LP with the Sisters, but this was apparently misfiled among some outtakes and thrown out. It seems Phil still expected the Sisters to pay for the recording out of their income, which led to a falling out and their move to another label.

The Belgian Marginal CD (1997) called The Paris Sisters Sing contains 9 of the songs on this CD (and the whole of their Everything Under The Sun LP). The extra titles not on the 1997 CD are I'll Be Crying Tomorrow, Yes - I Love You and Once Upon A While Ago plus a streo version of I Love How You Love Me.

It is useful to have all the Sisters' Spector singles on 1 CD, but the record company could perhaps have done better with the CD insert, which consists of a two-page biography and some (quite small) photos. There are only 11 tracks on the CD, so there was room for their MGM and Mercury singles to have been included as bonuses, or, maybe, Priscilla's 1967 solo LP.

Overall, a welcome CD, but, at the same time, with more tracks, it could have been better value for money.

This CD has numerous songs I have personally not heard of before and I am sure this applies to a lot of people who were only exposed to the hit entitled ' I Love how you love me'

5.0 out of 5 stars What You Need To Know 15 Nov 2006
By Cary E. Mansfield - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Phil Spector's mighty Wall of Sound was custom-built for his splendid girl groups--The Crystals, The Ronettes, and singer Darlene Love. The Paris Sisters, however, were the first girl group to have a major hit with Spector at the helm. Their ethereal ballad, "I Love How You Love Me," was a Top Five pop smash during the fall of 1961, and marked the beginning of the girl group era. The CD features the A & B sides of all five singles produced by Phil Spector. This is the first time these songs are appearing together on CD, and most are on CD for the first time ever. Features songs by Brill Building songsmiths Barry Mann ("You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin', "On Broadway," and Gerry Goffin and Carole King ("Will You Love Me Tomorrow," "One Fine Day"), as well as songs written by Phil Spector himself.

For many years i have been longing for all the Phil Spector produced tracks of the Paris Sisters,and at last i now have them.Although it isn't the Wall of Sound,the voice of Pricilla is so haunting,and compliments the lack of background sound. lovely Album

4.0 out of 5 stars Be My Girl 21 Mar 2007
By Gary M. Hunter - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I have searched for the Paris Sisters' recording of 'Be My Boy' for so long that I'm becoming an old man. As a 14 year-old my heart melted (and new feelings were aroused) when I first heard Priscilla's breathy voice. So I'm thrilled once again to have her, I mean this album, in my possession. Kudos to Varese for putting together a brief but lovely collection. Priscilla's thwarted career and sad death add to my recollection of a simpler, sweeter time.

4.0 out of 5 stars +1/2 -- Phil Spector sketches his future 24 Dec 2007
By hyperbolium - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Following his initial success with the Teddy Bears' 1958 "To Know Him is To Love Him," Phil Spector's mentor, Lester Sill, arranged for his protégé to apprentice with the legendary Leiber and Stoller in New York. Spector wrote songs, played guitar on various sessions, began producing, and made the acquaintance of the brilliant songwriters of the Brill Building. Upon returning to Los Angeles, Sill tasked him with producing the Paris Sisters for the newly formed Gregmark label. The San Francisco trio had been performing since they were children, and recording since 1953, but despite contracts with Decca and Imperial, they'd failed to break through. Spector's touch would soon change all that.

After four years without a studio date the group found their act radically reshaped by Spector, with their three part Andrews Sisters styled harmonies given over to the girl-group lead-and-backing vocals style. Priscilla Paris' breathy vocals, Spector's unusually restrained production and drowsy tempos gave many of the group's Gregmark singles a unique sound and emotional resonance. Their first side, Spector's "Be My Boy," merges love, hope and longing into the sort of idealized dream that Brian Wilson would emulate in early ballads with the Beach Boys. The Paris Sisters version completely trounces the overwrought original ("Be My Girl") that Spector had recorded as Ray Peterson's B-side to "Corrina, Corrina."

Even though Spector rebalanced the group's vocals, he refrained from modernizing them with a backbeat. Their second single, Barry Mann's "I Love How You Love Me," retained the dreamy lead vocal and languid tempo of the debut, but added a violin that gives the recording an extra voice. Topping out at #5, the Paris Sisters finally had a bona fide hit. The B-side (which was originally considered as the A-side), "All Through the Night," picks up the tempo and thickens the arrangement into a prototype of the Wall of Sound. It's catchy, and might have been a minor hit had it not been the flip of something as ephemerally perfect as "I Love How You Love Me."

Spector picked up additional material from Goffin & King ("He Knows I Love Him Too Much"), Doc Pomus ("What Am I To Do?") and another from Mann ("Let Me Be the One"), and though they all capture the fragile magic of Priscilla Paris' voice, none climbed back to the upper reaches of the charts. The group's fifth and final single for Gregmark paired Spector's "Yes - I Love You" with the group's own "Once Upon a While Ago," with neither side charting. Spector began producing a Paris Sisters album, but financial arguments between he and label owner Sill led to the tapes being "accidentally" erased.

Spector would perfect his wall of sound and move on to his greatest fame with the Crystals, Ronettes and others. The Paris Sisters made stops at MGM, Mercury and Reprise where they released singles and an album. Priscilla Paris cut a solo album, but the commercial magic of "I Love How You Love Me" was never recaptured. This collection includes all five of their Gregmark singles, both A- and B-sides, and a stereo remix of "I Love How You Love Me." The latter's an interesting curiosity (if just to realize that the session wasn't physically recorded single-track mono), but, unsurprisingly, it doesn't have nearly the overwhelming presence or balance of Spector's original single.

This is a fascinating early chapter in both the Phil Spector story and the '60s evolution of the girl-group. The only negative is the short 26'48 playing time, of which 2'12 is the stereo remix. But that's what Spector recorded with the group for Gregmark, so that's what you get. Now if someone could only find and restore the "mistakenly" erased album tapes! 4-1/2 stars, if allowed fractional ratings. [©2007 hyperbolium dot com]

2.0 out of 5 stars Poor Sound Quality 28 Jan 2009
By nsw - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
While the song selection is pretty good, the sound quality is terrible!Very muddy and distorted. It really detracts from their unique, sweet voices. In fact, the sound quality is so bad in my opinion, not only do I feel taken on the price, but that the sound quality is better on Youtube! What a cheap, poorly executed copy of recordings.

Buyer beware.
