Product description

Product Description

The Chiffons are the archetypal girl group. None of them became household names when they finally split in the early seventies. No one Chiffon could sing the others out of sight, nor was any of them outstandingly pretty. They had no gimmicks, no wild-eyed svengali, and the kids who bought their records would struggle to name a single member. What they did have was a classic sound, a classic look, and an almost faultless run of singles from their first - 'He's So Fine' - in 1963, right up to the last months of the decade - 'One Fine Day', 'What Am I Gonna Do With You' and 'Up On The Bridge'. Even The Supremes struggled to rival such consistency. The Chiffons were pure Girl Group and were one of many great girl groups that came out of New York's Bronx district in the 60’s. Formed of four high school classmates: Judy Craig, Sylvia Peterson, Barbara Lee, and Patricia Bennett, Their teenage innocence and ability to deliver lively vocals helped to give them their first minor hit in 1960, with the song 'Tonight’s The Night'. They continued to release singles over the ensuing years until 1963 when they hit the top of the US charts with their recording of 'He’s So Fine', written by Ronnie Mack. The song peaked at 16 in the UK in April 1963, though it hit the top of the chart in the US. The Chiffons followed this with the Gerry Goffin/Carole King penned 'One Fine Day', which features a brilliant piano riff played by King herself. The track was originally written for Little Eva but it didn’t work for her so The Chiffons were given the chance to record it - their release saw them climb into the top 5 on the UK charts. Two singles were released soon afterwards under the name The Four Pennies, with Patterson singing lead vocals. 'I Have A Boyfriend' was the next Chiffons single and was playing across the radio in New York when the news came through that Kennedy had been shot. Over the next few years they released a handful of singles which didn’t see much chart action, but then having changed to a different record company they eventually released their biggest single 'Sweet Talkin' Guy', which charted in 1966 and again in 1972, when it reached number 4. In 1967 they released the songs 'If I Knew Then What I Know Now' and 'Just For Tonight' – more grown up girl-group songs. More great singles followed in the 60’s and the band continued until 1971 when Judy Craig quit the group. The same year that George Harrison’s 'My Sweet Lord' was released containing the classic riff from 'He’s So Fine'. Ronnie Mack’s Estate won that battle in 1975 and The Chiffons briefly re-formed to cheekily cover 'My Sweet Lord', giving it the full NYC treatment!
