Product Description

* Ace's final pairing of two original Scepter Shirelles albums on one CD brings together one concept album and one (mostly) live set originally released in 1964 and 1967 respectively.

* "Sing The Golden Oldies" is the girls' tribute to their peers, mixing 50s doo wop hits by the Willows, the Cadillacs, the Solitaires, Little Anthony and the Imperials and the Platters with more recent early 60s smashes by such as Bruce Channel, Del Shannon and Gene McDaniels. "Spontaneous Combustion" is - apart from two tracks - a genuine live album from an era when they were far from commonplace in black American music.

* Neither of these albums has ever been on CD before. They are complemented by two bonus tracks that are appropriate to the period, both of which are also making their Ace CD debut.

* All tracks are presented in stereo where they were originally recorded in stereo. Sleeve notes are by acknowledged Shirelles expert and friend, Dennis Garvey, who has spoken with Shirley and Beverly expressly for this set.

* Ace hopes to round out this series later in 2010 with a "Singles, Stereo Mixes and Rarities" package that will tie up all the loose ends of the girls' Scepter catalogue - watch this space!

This just about completes the CD release of all the girls' Scepter material, so thanks to Ace Records. My vinyl copy of "Spontaneous combustion" is almost worn out, so this has come just in time. Most of the tracks on "Golden Oldies" have appeared on other compilations, but the live album is a gem, giving those of us who never saw the girls live the chance to experience their magic. The warmth and great harmonizing that The Shirelles personified shines through. A must for all fans of THE girl group!
