All About The Girls – Lost Girl Group Gems Of The 1960s

Renowned girl group collector Bob Stanley pulls 24 gems out of his collection.

It’s a fabulous cross section of this much-loved sixties genre, ranging from the atmospheric and soulful – The Challengers’ I Hear An Echo – to the magnificently bratty – Robin Clark’s Daddy Daddy (Gotta Get a Phone In My Room).

There are lyrics straight out of a sitcom – The Chiffons’ Doctor Of Hearts – and proto Britney mopes like Cathy Carroll’s Poor Little Puppet (“the puppet in the mirror is me!”).

Teenage traumas, doop-daps, sha-la-las and doo- langs by the bucketload
