Product description

Product Description

* Can it really be as long ago as 2004 that the last volume of "Where The Girls Are" was released? Well, yes it can, but girl group fans and collectors will find the five-year wait for the latest addition to the serious has been worth every minute.

* The 26 tracks here span the years 1962-1967, with 18 of them new to CD with eight of the selections are previously unissued in any format. Among them are great tracks by proven favourites the Jaynetts, the Satisfactions, the Jelly Beans and a pre-Motown Brenda Holloway sounding a lot like her heroine Mary Wells.

* Other highlights include the Zippers from Nashville, Baby Jane and the Rockabyes from the Bronx, an elusive album track from New Jersey's Shirelles, the mysterious Puffs from Los Angeles, Chicago's Lovelites and Gary US Bonds' backup girls the Azaleas from Norfolk, Virginia.

* All in all, a veritable guided girl group tour, all wrapped up, as usual, in a nice fat 6000 word booklet positively bursting with facts and pictures. Notes by Mick Patrick.

I half expected by Vol 7, the overall quality of the Girls series choices would have diminished a bit. How wrong could I be, plenty of real rarities and fine ones at that as well as a nice mix between the soulful and more poppy 60s female sounds. Starting with the super Tears Come Tumbling from the Teardrops through hit making Barbara Mason's moving Trouble Child, along the way there's such gems as His Lips Get In The Way by Joani Camp - fail to understand why such a wonderfully haunting record remained unreleased at the time - an early Brenda Holloway showing the Tamla legend had such potential even in the pre-Motown days, an alternate take of Claudine Clarke's biggie Party Lights and the orignal version of the Breakaways That Boy Of Mine by The Sparkels among many others. Sorry to doubt you Ace records, should have known better!

From the few opening bars of 'Tears come tumbling' by the Teardrops you won't be disappointed by this the 7th in the excellent series by 'Ace Records' (Ace by name ace by nature). I agree with the other reviewer (the only real review that is) there are lots of real rarities here and the quality has not diminished at all, includes 8 previously unissued tracks. There are very good tracks from The Jelly Beans, Joani Camp and Brenda Holloway (one of Motown's greatest singers and sadly under used). There are excellent tracks from Beverly Williams, The Tandells, Ann Hodge and so many more, then there's the Shirelles 'What is love?' which is simply OUTSTANDING. The compilation (63.35mins long) comes with a fantastic 20 page glossy colour booklet packed with track by track info. The sound quality is also fantastic throughout. Overall, what a top notch compilation, with lots of excellent rare tracks on it. One of my favourites of the series (Volume 5 is also as good as this one). Highly recommended. 10/10. Looking forward to Volume 8.

This time round there's not as many repeats and more obscurities.Which is what collectors want.
Seems rather pointless for the 3rd time round with Claudine Clark when there's so much to go at-even Claudine's Party Lights album was not represented 100% on the recent CD

This album has many uknown girlie groups on it, and you can see why they weren't hits. It isn't bad, but there are no standout tracks on it

I am really enjoying this CD. It is the first time in a long, long time that I have been able to purchase an "oldies" CD in which I did not have one song on the CD.

3.0 out of 5 stars A return to form 7 Dec. 2012
By Kal West - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The seventh, and to date, final volume of this long-running series is not the best -- volumes 3 and 4 fight it out for that honour. Still, it is a step up from the disappointing Volume 6.

This CD contains, as with some other volumes in this collection, a bevy of talented performers dealing with a noticeable shortage of first-rate material. (Having already compiled over 150 obscure or previously unreleased girl-group records over the course of earlier volumes, the well is starting to run dry a bit.) Still, of the 26 tracks featured here, there is enough solid (not excellent, but solid) material to make this a worthwhile purchase for most girl-group fans. The standouts are tracks from The Shirelles, The Zippers, Marry (sic) Clayton, The Satisfactions, The Mirettes, and Baby Jane and the Rock-A-Byes. Other tracks are competent, professional, and delivered with flair, but tend to be very slight overall. Also, the version of "Party Lights" included here is a previously unreleased double-tracked mix, that doesn't -- to my ear -- have quite the same appeal as the actual single mix.

Bump the star rating up by one if you're a girl-group collector -- there's enough previously unreleased collector bait here to keep you happy. For others, this is an enjoyable CD, although not an outstanding one. But if this is indeed the final volume in this series, it's still not a bad way to go out...

(2014 UPDATE: The series does indeed continue -- Volume 8 is now out, having been released in late 2013.)

The Girl Groups were the greatest of that era.
