recommend me some good stuff! specific records would be really great too. THANKS!
and disappointed you will not be.
which I think was reissued under a different name. Anyway, it's a great big 4CD box set taking a sweep across the genre.
The Shangri-La's (any singles comp)
The Chiffons (any singles comp)
The Angels (ditto)
you may like The Shirelles too
observe its awesomeness: http://tinyurl.com/m398xl (order it new and used, obvs. don't pay £80)
also the shangri-las compilation 'myrmidons of melodrama' is essential.
and The Ronettes.
Amazing compilation. Especially if, like me, you're a bit lazy.
"He's a Rebel".... Definitely Phil Spector comp and Shangri-La's are good places to start.
This is probably the single track I have listened to the most on my generic mp3 player, never gets skipped. The harmonies are flipping amazing!
'if yooooou hold me your arms and saayyyyy once again you love me"
Comes with a nice booklet if I remember correctly.
Some of my faves from it:
Goldie & The Gingerbreads - Skinny Vinnie
The Goodees - Double Shot (Of My Baby's Love)
Sugar & The Spices - Do The Dog
ahh... you've put a link, and yes it is.
this is a great compilation, i really like the angels song - get away from me.
