This review is from: Girls With Guitars (Audio CD)
Girls with guitars is surely what we need, especially if they are electric guitars, and they are not in short supply on this 24-track pheromone-fuelled collection from Ace. At first glance most of the names may seem unfamiliar but the copious notes in the fact-filled 20-page booklet show that there was some considerable pedigree amongst the producers, arrangers and writers if not the performers, and even here there are one or two familiar names, such as Darlene Love, Fanita James, Grazia Nitzsche, Genya "Goldie" Ravan and Pat Powdrill from the Ikettes. Goldie and the Gingerbreads were known in the UK for their Decca singles, but the four tracks here were recorded earlier for Scepter subsidiaries in the States and were unheard over here. The album description also mentions the appearance of Jackie DeShannon under a pseudonym, but there is no documentation of this on the record and I was unable to identify her. Actually, it doesn't matter how obscure these singles are, especially in the UK, where they were unlikely to be heard on the radio; as always, it's what's in the grooves that counts, and Ace, in the form of compiler Mick Patrick, has not let us down in this axe-filled female celebration of adolescent noise.
