  • Various - Lipstick, Powder & Paint: A Decade Of Girls 1953-1962 (3CD Boxset) (CD)


    One Direction, Westlife, Boyzone, Take That, David Cassidy, The Osmonds, The Beatles, Cliff, Elvis, Dickie Valentine, Johnny Ray and Frank Sinatra; from today right back to the Forties they all generated teen hysteria and had their female fans screaming uncontrollably. At the same time there were many highly successful female pop singers, many of whom racked up as many hit singles as their male counterparts. Although none commanded the same vocal adulation as the boys, their contribution to pop music is just as valid and Lipstick, Powder & Paint highlights some of the girls who played their part, large or small, in the evolution of pop.

    Compiled by Austin Powell, the 3CD set Lipstick, Powder & Paint salutes a decade of girls 1953-1962, and runs the gamut of country, R&B and easy listening, but is primarily pop music with chart appeal. Big names from Rosemary Clooney, Julie London, The Chordettes, Doris Day and Connie Francis to Petula Clark, The Crystals, Timi Yuro, The Marvelettes and Nancy Sinatra are present, so too are lesser-known artists like Lorie Mann, The Perry Sisters, Betsy Brye, Cindy Mann, Yolanda and Mimi Roman.

    Male record buyers didn’t scream and reduce themselves to tears, but many would have dreamt of spending time with their favourite girl singer. Maybe yours is among the 90 tracks included on Lipstick, Powder & Paint.
