Early Girls: Volume 3

1 rating: 5.0
2004 audio CD release

Why is it I love girl singers so much? Maybe it's the fact that my mother was one. I'd ask my analyst, if I had one. Freud aside, let's see what scrumptious all-female delights Messrs Broven, Churchill & Finnis (the Ace selection panel) have in store … see full wiki

1 review about Early Girls: Volume 3

A real nice addition to anyone's oldies collection.

  • Dec 23, 2008
Tired of hearing the same old songs on the radio?  Spice up your listening with another of the great offerings from England's premier oldies label Ace Records.  There are three volumes in the "Early Girls" series.  I own two of them and they are both great but to me "Early Girls:  Volume 3" is clearly the pick of the litter.

There are a generous 28 tracks on this single disc that spotlights the decade between 1955 and 1964.  It is an eclectic mix of tunes from that period featuring some old reliables like "I Will Follow Him" from Little Peggy March and the Carla Thomas classic "Gee Whiz".  But you are also going to find some other tunes you are sure to remember that are not all that easy to come by these days. When was the last time you heard Margie Rayburn's 1957 Top Ten smash "I'm Available"?  Or how about "Please Love Me Forever" by Cathy Jean and the Roomates or one of my favorite tracks "With All My Heart" by Jodie Sands also from 1957?  And there are a good number of other outstanding tracks in this collection that I simply had never even heard before.  Lillian Briggs was a white big band style singer who was discovered by Alan Freed.  Her 1955 recording of "I Want You To Be My Baby" was a Top 20 smash back in 1955.  I had never heard it before and it simply blew me away.  Other lesser known hits you might get a big kick out of include Diane Ray's "Please Don't Talk To The Lifeguard" and the sensational "My One and Only Jimmy Boy" by The Girlfriends.

As usual the included 24 page booklet with "Early Girls: Volume 3" is a true collectors item just packed with photos and information on the artists. And the sound quality is impeccable as usual. Absolutely nothing negative to say about this one.  Very highly recommended!!!
