Product Description

Product Description

An albums worth of the Rock Soul hybrid that was the musical context for 1967-1969 in the Uk pop world. Thumping bass lines , loud brass , chopping rhythm guitars , sweeping violins ,rousing vocal chorus backings , characterise these selections . Variations on the theme are evident , from the Euro influence, to the Club sounds, to the downright quirky.

Some well known names in there , and even a hit (very rare in this series !) with Clodagh Rogers ,but also plenty of obscure material for collectors to get their teeth into , including the previously unreleased and only very recently discovered Ministry of Sound tapes.

Volume six in the established and well received series with plenty of media followers such as Sean Rowley , Paul Lester , Mark Lamarr . As with the previous five volumes the main criteria is a focus on Brit girls, and/or Brit girl productions. So for example although Claire Francis is American she worked as an A&R Producer in London during this period and recorded at London studios with UK musicians. The resulting recordings are a distinctly clearer UK production sound, than if the same had been attempted in the US at the time.

Product Description

Prima late 60s Brit girl Rock & Soul from Joyce Bond, Val McKenna, Sandra Bryant, Jeannie Dee & others.

4.0 out of 5 stars excellent 3 Oct 2009
By Bill Your 'Free Form FM Print DJ - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
If there is a problem with listening the Suupremes or Chrytals, it is certianly not the music itself. It is just that this music is so widely played, we numb to its brillance. Go back to the albums and play the non-hits, and you'll remember why these bands are still staples.

But let's face it: on the first run, most of these bands were bought on 45s, and FM radio stupidly ignored them in the name of cultural divide.

If you are one of the smart and lucky few who has worn the grooves out on your Motown and Phille's Lps, don't you worry. There is plenty more of this material available. Let's start with this.

Sassy and Stonefree contains wonderfull songs from unknown girl groups and lady singers. There is folky soul, Spectoresqe work, and all kinds of great Motown homage.

There is nothing new under the sun with this genre--it was pure fun, formula never made to be inventive. But what a formula. All the work on here stands up as well as "Can't Hurry Love," "Dancin' In The Street," or 100s of other sixties girlie singles we can all rattle off in our sleep.

The artists on here are not well-known--a lot of them probably should have been--but it is nice to know there is so much of this stuff out there. Start with this.

4.0 out of 5 stars Title Says It Right - Sassy ... and Brassy 29 Sep 2006
By KC - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Another great volume of mostly obscure or forgotten fun, light-hearted distaff pop tracks from the the late 1960's. The volume covers the years when pop was brassy, sassy and the UK version of the Supremes. Unless you're a completist collector, this CD offers a slew of tasty tracks that are hard to find elsewhere. One of the few series where Volume 6 is pretty close in quality to Volume 1 - well worth adding for fans of 60's pop or women vocalists.

3.0 out of 5 stars (If you own some of the other collections of) A bit ot a letdown! 21 Oct 2005
By uthungus - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
One thing I've liked about these Dream Babes Series as they've come out has always been the "introduction to" singers and their older works I've never heard of before. When you already have some of the singer's whole collections already and nothing new is offered (missed cuts) I just tend to skim over them and count them as "repeats" and therefore lessen the count of overall tracks offered.

Have I been collecting music too long now? Maybe! But already released (that I own already) have been the Samantha Jones cuts - both; and the Barbara Ruskin cut as well. What's left on this collection is a little later 1960s and early 70s stuff. Interesting to say the least but not really dazzling as a whole. These were kind of gimmicks that didn't quite work and the collection kind of badly ties together because of it.

Things I do love are the CD graphics and the extensive details of the singer contributors. There's still some room left for me to pursue collecting some of the other artists here, so to me it's not a total loss. Just not my favorite of this series.
