Baby It's You / Shirelles & King Curtis Give Twist [Import]
(United Kingdom - Import)
2008 release, the second in a series that will restore to catalogue the original Scepter and Pricewise vinyl albums by The Shirelles, in the same running order as issued plus bonus non-album flipsides. This one pairs the girls' third and fourth sets and adds three bonus tracks that are appropriate to their original vinyl releases: 'I Saw a Tear' (Single Version), 'Baby It's You' (Mono Single Version) and 'Hurry Home to Me (Soldier Boy)'. The Shirelles were the door openers for the girl group sound of the early '60s. Their strongest sides stand alongside the best of anything that splendid genre has to offer. Exquisitely remastered and in stereo where stereo tapes still exist, this CD and future releases in the series will provide the definitive Shirelles collection for anyone who wants something more than the umpteenth rehash of their Greatest Hits. 26 tracks. Ace.
