The CD says it's the first time that the A & B sides of all 5 Paris Sisters Spector-produced singles have appeared together anywhere. Phil also recorded an LP with the Sisters, but this was apparently misfiled among some outtakes and thrown out. It seems Phil still expected the Sisters to pay for the recording out of their income, which led to a falling out and their move to another label.
The Belgian Marginal CD (1997) called The Paris Sisters Sing contains 9 of the songs on this CD (and the whole of their Everything Under The Sun LP). The extra titles not on the 1997 CD are I'll Be Crying Tomorrow, Yes - I Love You and Once Upon A While Ago plus a streo version of I Love How You Love Me.
It is useful to have all the Sisters' Spector singles on 1 CD, but the record company could perhaps have done better with the CD insert, which consists of a two-page biography and some (quite small) photos. There are only 11 tracks on the CD, so there was room for their MGM and Mercury singles to have been included as bonuses, or, maybe, Priscilla's 1967 solo LP.
Overall, a welcome CD, but, at the same time, with more tracks, it could have been better value for money.
