5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating history hidden by limited success 26 Jan 2005
By Peter Durward Harris #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
The Vernon girls, from Liverpool, were originally a 70-strong girls choir sponsored by a commercial company but by the time they became successful had been reduced to a trio, although even that trio didn't have a stable line-up. They are best remembered as a television act.
This collection focuses on their hit-making period, although their popularity on television was not matched on record - they were not particularly successful in the singles chart. Their only UK top twenty hit was Lover please, a cover of a Clyde McPhatter song, but they also had minor hits with You know what I mean, Locomotion, Funny all over and Do the bird. Of their other tracks, the best is surely We love the Beatles, but the other tracks are interesting to committed fans of British early sixties music.
Various ex-members found success in other groups or as backup singers, while one married British rock'n'roll star Marty Wilde - they later became the parents of eighties pop star Kim Wilde.
While this is by no means an essential collection, it is an interesting slice of easy listening Liverpool pop music.

5.0 out of 5 stars The ever changing 22 Nov 2006
By Richard
Format:Audio CD
Today's Vernons Girls don't necessarily contain all original members but the point is the group were never of a fixed lineup.The ones who appeared with Cliff Richard for the Oh Boy segment of the Wembley Event in the 90s were about half and half.

The reords they made were singles only and one of these You Know What I Mean was the first ever to put a Scouse accent on the charts.

At this time there were only 3 of them as the Vernons Girls Trio-the same ones who later made one of the early Beatlessongs-We love you Beatles.

That their version of Lover please was superior to Clyde McPhatter's original depends on whether you thought the song was better with girls voices or a guy singing in falsetto.

The versions of contemporary American girl group hits were not really an alternative-they were too polite sounding for one thing and only made as a contract filler same as their previous singles for EMI.Because the Vernons Girls-at one time 16 strong-were TV stars with Cliff Richard connections

Their main income was from the 100s of hit singles made by Decca which used them as backup singers

2.0 out of 5 stars Vernon Girls......................... 30 Mar 2001
By John W. Marshall - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The Vernon Girls never quiet got there. Their sound is rather bland and uninspired....the mediocre material didn't help. What's interesting is that The Breakaways came out of the Vernon Girls...with a thunderous roar! Sadly, that music in nearly impossible to find. The Breakaways had the Phil Spector Wall of Sound...like The Crystals meet the Ronettes meet the Shangri-las. Back to the Best of the Vernon Girls...white bread at it's mildest.....but, a part of the British History of early Rock Music. Forutnately...it got alot better!
