In common with the other volumes in this series, this collection consists of rare tracks that didn't make any significant impression when they were released and have largely been forgotten. If you are a casual fan of sixties music just looking for hits, you should look elsewhere. You won't find them here. There are a few familiar names here, but their famous songs are not included.
On this collection, the big names are the Shirelles (represented here by an album track and a B-side), the Shangri-Las (represented by an early flop single) and Maxine Brown (represented by songs that became American hits for others - the Essex and the Avons).
Less obviously familiar is Tammy Montgomery who later achieved fame as Marvin Gaye's duet partner before dying aged just 24. You may also recognize the Toys and Goldie and the Gingerbreads. All of these are also represented here by rare tracks.
Mention must also be made of Dianne and Annita, represented here by two tracks, one of which is the original version of A groovy kind of love - perhaps the most familiar song here. This version was only released on a 1965 French EP originally, so they were the first of the three acts to miss a big opportunity. Patti LaBelle was next - her version was released as a B-side (and can be found on volume 4 of this series), while Lesley Gore's management didn't like the song and refused to allow her to record it, although Lesley was keen to. The song finally became a British and American hit the Mindbenders.
The overall sound of this collection is early sixties girl-group. If you are already familiar with this type of music and you have a significant collection of such music, you may find this fascinating. If not, you are probably not ready for this.

The 2nd 'WTGA' CD is another sparkler. It as 30 tracks, by far the best value of the four and features many songs which are released here for the first time. It starts with 'She's got everything' by Maxine Brown, not as strong as the Sugarpie de Santo version, but still a treat. There's also, Tammy Montgomery (shown smouldering on the inside cover) who would later become Tammy Tyrrell. The final track 'Too young to be fooled' is a quiet and delicately eerie last word compared to the fire and spice of the rest, but beautiful nonetheless.

5.0 out of 5 stars Goldie & The Gingerbreads & More!! 28 Jan. 2008
By gassy goon - Published on Amazon.com
I love it that GOLDIE AND THE GINGERBREADS - the first all female ROCK BAND THAT PLAYED THEIR OWN INSTRUMENTS are on the cover of this CD. It contains their version of Mary Wells' " BYE BYE BABY ". Another bonus is the discovery of a rare track that lead singer GOLDIE who is also known as GENYA RAVAN when she left the group is the singer on LOOKING FOR TROUBLE by a group called THE CHARMERS. Must have been one of those studio group names that was custom back then. Being a huge fan, I am happy to have this CD just for those tracks. The rest of the songs offer a lot of fun & listening pleasure as well.

Ace Records, how about a whole CD of GOLDIE AND THE GINGERBREADS? They did many singles in the UK & the US , and you have the group on 3 " WHERE THE GIRLS ARE " compliations. It's time they get their own full album since they started making records in 1964. GENYA RAVAN has since made some solid music since then, and CAROL MACDONALD made some solo albums too. Carol, GINGER BIANCO and MARGO LEWIS all were part of the 70's progressive band, ISIS also. It's time to give these women a full CD of their music after over 40 years.

2.0 out of 5 stars A weaker entry in this inconsistent series 23 Sept. 2012
By Kal West - Published on Amazon.com
If you're an absolute girl-group addict, this CD compilation of obscure flop singles, rare B-sides, EP tracks and previously unreleased masters from the vaults of the Scepter/Wand and Musicor labels is designed with you in mind. If you're just a casual listener, though, you'll find this to be a modest collection of records that never really stick. Second-tier songwriting is usually the culprit, as the songs in general are well-performed and produced, but lack the dynamic spark of the genre's best songs. Relative highlights include The Shirelles album track "Make The Night A Little Bit Longer"; Silky and the Shantungs' goofy, novelty-flavored "He's A Fink"; and a tough, alternate version of The Charmers' "Looking For Trouble" Also of note are two well-written tracks performed by Diane & Annita, both of which were later covered (and performed somewhat better) by others: "A Groovy Kind Of Love" and "Dark Shadows and Empty Hallways".

Overall, this is a compilation of records made by talented people who have better shown their talents on other recordings. That means that everything here is at least competent, and a few tracks are good or better, but there are no hidden classics here. If you're a girl-group collector, that'll probably still be enough to make it a worthwhile purchase for you. For everyone else, there are better girl-group compilations out there -- including a few later volumes in this series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful 17 Dec. 2003
By nobody123 - Published on Amazon.com
What a great collection. The Toys, the Teardrops, Goldie and the Gingerbreads. The highlight of this package cd is definately "I've Got A Crush on Teacher" by the Fawns, a legendary 70's girl group best known for "Girl in Trouble" and "Bless You".
