  • Various - Scratch My Back! Pye Beat Girls 1963-1968 (CD)


    Located in London s West End, Pye Records boasted a super stable of female talent. Released hot on the heels of Ace’s recent Love Hit Me! Decca Beat Girls; collection, Scratch My Back! Pye Beat Girls; comprises two-dozen peachy selections from Pye and sister label Piccadilly’s 1960s output.

    The compilation is titled after the opening track by Jan Panter, a Mark Wirtz-produced must-have for those who prefer their girl-pop records beefed up with a dose of fuzz guitar. Tony Hatch, the most successful of Pye’s in-house producers, is represented by cherry-picked titles by the Breakaways, Petula Clark, cult favourite Sandra Barry, the Baker Twins and Julie Grant. ’Heart’ has to be the rocking-est track Petula ever recorded, so much so that it was covered in the USA by garage band the Remains. Other highlights include the Satin Bells’ English language cover of French yé-yé girl France Gall’s ’Da-Di-Da-Da’, Billie Davis’ self-penned rocker ’Ev’ry Day’ and ’Come On Baby’ by Kim D, one of the most soulful of British girl singers of the era.
