This review is from: Myrmidons Of Melodrama (Audio CD)
The Shangri Las were not big in the UK and I admit that I bought this album solely on the strength of Remember (Walking in the Sand) and Leader of the Pack. I did not know any other material and I was not really expecting anything great. How wrong I was! What a fantastically pleasant surprise this album turned out to be. Those girls were unique and very talented. Some of the harmonies, for example on I Can Never Go Home Any More, are amazing and some of Mary Weiss's lead vocals are stunning. The production on these songs also contributes to the unique sound. The album is packed full of classic tracks and in my view there are better songs than the famous two UK hits. If you only know Remember and Leader of the Pack you will be in for a real treat.
