HATS OFF TO GIRL GROUPS,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Girl Group Sounds: One... (Audio CD)
As a long time fan of Bruce Springsteen, I always remember a Greil Marcus review in Rolling Stone about the Born to Run album in '75. He described the album as sounding like 'a chevy running on melted down Crystals records'. That review and album took me back to the Phil Spector-produced songs of the 60s - particularly The Crystals, Ronettes et al, and my love of that girl group sound has never diminished since. Trying to identify favourites out of a set of 120 tracks is way too difficult, but if you like tunes, melody, harmonies, drama, love, loss and the girl group sound, then buy this. One word about the box - I've never been one to eulogise about packaging because it's what's on the disc that matters, but the hat box and accompanying booklet are simply superb. This has a special place in my musical collection alongside Bruce, the Spector stuff, Dion, Elvis and all those other magical sounds of youth and love.
