The album opens with Whirlwind by producer Gary Paxton protégées the Rev-Lons, the trio’s final recording but also their best, and closes with He’s All Right With Me by the Mirettes (the Ikettes incognito). Other highlights include the Supremes-style Cupid’s Got A Hold On Me by the Belles; the Sweethearts recording of Beauty Is Just Skin Deep, a song originally intended for the Ikettes; and Summertime Is Surfin’ Time by the Surf Bunnies three more terrific instances of the West Coast girl group sound. But not all the tracks here emanate from that part of the USA viz Mr Everything by New York-based Little Eva Harris and little-heard examples from the Pets, Tren-Teens and Lovettes, all from New Jersey. Felice Taylor here with her unissued-at-the-time Sing Me A Love Song graces the eye-popping jacket, which houses a colourful inner sleeve featuring a 3,000-word track commentary and an array of illustrations.

Ross Diana & The Supremes - Supreme Rarities: Motown Lost & Found 1960-1969 (4LP boxset) (LP)€140,00
s the hometown girls who conquered the world, Diana Ross and the Supremes are inarguably the most successful, highest selling girl group of all time. From their inauspicious start as the long-forgotten Primettes, to their ascension past the moniker of ’no-hit Supremes’ through the ranks of Motown’s rank-and-file to globe-trotting superstars, this group is as pure and quintessential Detroit Motor City as you can get.
Originally released on 2xCD in in 2008, the Supremes ’Supreme Rarities’ from the Motown Lost & Found Series collects from the depths of the label archives to showcase the rarities, the outtakes and the incomparable live recordings from this inimitable group of Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees. Listen to the story unfold from the innocent teenaged doo-wop of ’You Can Depend On Me’ from 1960 all the way through the slick, socially-conscious refinement of ’I’m Livin’ in Shame’ from 1969. Aside a handful of forgotten vinyl releases decades ago, the majority of this material has not been released on vinyl. Until now. Third Man, in a unique partnership with Universal Music, has taken this double-CD and turned it into a glorious 4xLP collection housed in an impeccably-designed slipcase, all watercolor pastel vibrant photos highlight how absolutely impeccable this group is. Of particular interest is that ’Supreme Rarities’ are the first Motown records EVER pressed in the city of Detroit. Diana Ross attended high school at Cass Tech, a mere mile away from Third Man Pressing where these this title was lovingly pressed, which is also just a mile away from the Brewster-Douglass Housing Projects where Ross and fellow Supremes Mary Wilson and Florence Ballard all grew up. The 48 tracks included here include the earliest Primettes tracks, invigorating covers of The Rolling Stones ’Satisfaction’ and the Beatles ’I Saw Her Standing There’, along with renditions of hits for OTHER Motown artists like ’Mickey’s Monkey’ and ’Uptight (Everything’s Alright)’ in addition to alternate vocal takes of stone cold certified smashes like ’You Can’t Hurry Love’ and ’Someday We’ll Be Together.’ And if you want the hits medley, ’Come See About Me’, ’Baby Love’ and ’Stop! In the Name of Love’ will wonderfully whet your appetite. 180 gram vinyl. All sleeves are Stoughton tip-on with amazing full color restored photos and notes.

Sinatra Nancy - Start Walkin’ 1965-1976 (2LP, Ltd, With Book) (LP)€47,00
UPEA PAKETTI! VIIMEISEN PÄÄLLE TEHTY TUPLA-ALBUMI!
As the eldest daughter of Frank Sinatra, Nancy was born into the spotlight. At 19, she made her professional debut in front of millions of Americans, appearing alongside her father and Elvis Presley on the television special Welcome Home Elvis. Not long after, she released a series of singles. But those demure recordings didn’t reflect the real Nancy Sinatra – that Nancy would be re-introduced to the world just a few years later, thanks to an unlikely musical partnership with songwriter and producer Lee Hazlewood.
Nancy’s performance of Lee’s song ”These Boots Are Made for Walkin'” was a huge hit in 1966 and became her signature tune. The pair began a three year run of successful albums, duets and singles including ”Sugar Town,” ”Some Velvet Morning,” ”Summer Wine,” ”Sand,” ”Jackson,” and the title track to the 1967 James Bond film ”You Only Live Twice.” Start Walkin’ explores Nancy’s recordings with Lee, her inspired collaborations with songwriter Mac Davis (”Hello L.A., Bye Bye Birmingham”), producer Lenny Waronker (”Hook and Ladder”) and the ”should’ve been hit” song with arranger/producer Billy Strange (”How Are Things In California.”) Over the years, she has been cited as an influence by countless artists, including Sonic Youth, Morrissey, Calexico, U2, and Lana Del Rey. Her haunting song ”Bang, Bang” gained a new legion of fans when it appeared in the opening credits of Quentin Tarantino’s 2003 film, Kill Bill Volume 1. Most recently, Sinatra’s contributions to the industry were further recognized by her peers, when ”Boots” was inducted into the GRAMMY ® Hall of Fame. The honor, bestowed in January of 2020, recognizes ”musical recordings of lasting qualitative or historical significance.”
Various - Thirteen Roses Singing In a Male World! (LP)€20,00
Thirteen Roses singing in a male world. Far from interpreting this sentence in any politic or vindictive way, but don’t dissmiss those ways at all, this LP aims to highlight the power of female singers in Twentieth Century’s recordings industry, just to pay tribute on those women who, in many cases, broken rules and led the way for next generations.
Some of these roses were big and beautiful, and changed their colours whenever they wanted, some others flowered briefly buy left behind amazing frangances that can still be appreciated.
A small garden of just thirteen roses, singing louder and fighting harder to win a chance to be heard.
Hats off to those women, don’t mind if they’re gone, the future belongs to them.
Various - Girls With Guitars Know Why! (LP)€29,00
A collection of guitar-wielding all-girl bands, drop-dead female frat rock, garage girls and axe-centric she-pop. 14 hot nuggets, each one hand-picked with vinyl lovers in mind. Pressed on 180g transparent violet vinyl in heavy-duty sleeve, with an inner bag sporting a 4,000-word track commentary and rare photos.
It’s guitars a go-go on this compilation of storming female garage rock from the 60s. There’s She’s thundering ‘Piece Of You’, which remained unreleased until 1999; the Chicks’ take on ‘The Rebel Kind’, penned by the mighty Lee Hazlewood; Sandy Edmonds’ fuzzed-up cover of the Pretty Things’ ‘Come See Me’; the Wrongh Black Bag’s electric ‘I Don’t Know Why’, and ‘Love Seems So Hard To Find’ by Debbie Williams & the Unwritten Law, which shows young Debbie had talent and confidence way beyond her years. More stunning she-pop comes from the Rums & Coke’s feisty performance of the Dave Clark Five’s ‘Glad All Over’’; ‘Nothing Can Go Wrong’ by the Bea’s; and ‘Quite A Reputation’ by the Chymes, supported here by the Turtles. Joe Meek fans will especially enjoy Glenda Collins’ ‘Thou Shalt Not Steal’, which features Ritchie Blackmore tearing up a storm on guitar.
If that wasn’t enough, there are gritty groovers by Goldie & the Gingerbreads with their take on the Kinks’ ‘Look For Me Baby’ souped-up as an organ-driven dancer, and the Debutantes’ slinking version of ‘We Gotta Get Out Of This Place’. “Chicks can’t play”, the young Ted Nugent once told Jan of the Debutantes, but they and the other guitar-toting girl bands here show just how empty a statement that was. The Belles appear with their only disc, ‘Melvin’ – a gender-swapped version of Them’s ‘Gloria’ – an original copy of which would set you back $500, and the snarling ‘Boy, What’ll You Do Then’ by Denise is another big bucks rarity. The magical trip that is ‘Stardust Come Back’ by Girls Take Over closes the album in a tribute to the recently departed Cindy Wilhelmi, the band’s songwriter and guitarist. So, go on, grab a copy. You’ll be Glad All Over.

Charmaines - I Idolize You! Fraternity Recordings 1960-1964 (LP)€29,00
A brief appearance on Billboard’s Bubbling Under chart belies the fact that the Charmaines were Cincinnati’s leading 1960s girl group. Formed by Marian ”Gigi” Jackson, Dee Watkins and Irene Vinegar, the group was awarded a contract with Fraternity Records for winning a talent show.
Gigi’s sister Jerri sang on many of the group’s records but was too young to perform in nightclubs. When Dee left to get married, Jerri joined as a full-time member. The Charmaines called it a day in the early 70s but several of their records remained popular with dancers on the UK’s Northern Soul scene. That popularity received a boost in the mid-2000s when their great version of Ike & Tina Turner’s ’I Idolize You’ was made available for the first time, immediately finding favour with DJs and club-goers.
During their career the Charmaines had singles on six different labels, but they never did have an album released. We rectify that situation here with this stylishly packaged vinyl-only 14-track collection of their finest Fraternity recordings. Along with ’I Idolize You’, highlights include ’What Kind Of Girl (Do You Think I Am)’, ’On The Wagon’ (as covered by the Ronettes), their rip-roaring version of ’Rockin’ Pneumonia’ and three terrific examples of their work as backing singers for label-mates Lonnie Mack and Carl Edmondson.
