5.0 out of 5 stars The definitive Book on Girl Groups of the 60s, 28 Oct 2002
By 
Midlander (Herefordshire United Kingdom) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Girl Groups: Fabulous Females That Rocked the World (Paperback)
This is a wonderful book - full of information and pictures on 60 groups mostly from the late 50s to the early 70s.
I've been a fan of this sort of music for many years, but I knew only a fraction of what is in here. John has chosen a representative cross-section of groups from the famous such as the Supremes, Ronettes, Crystals, Chantels, Angels etc. to the little known and previously little documented - Darlettes, Teardrops, Veneers, Beverly Warren, Nella Dodds, Maureen Gray etc. etc. All acts are illustrated, many by two or three photos.
These biographies are followed by amazingly comprehensive discographies which include records the artists made under different names. There is also an alphabetical list of groups with their labels and a price guide to the most in-demand 500 records.
Somehow, he has managed to track down and interview many of the artists and obtain a great deal of truly original information to supplement his wider researches of existing sources.
The book is written with an evident love of the music but John has wisely kept his personal likes and dislikes in the background - so unlike most books on popular music you won't be annoyed by disparaging comments on your favourites!
To fans of the girl group sound this is completely indispensible. Fans of Doo-Wop, 60s Soul and 60s Pop will also find much to interest them.
