Lesley GoreGirl Talk (with bonus tracks) ... CD CD format
Mercury/Ace (UK), 1964/1965. New Copy ... $9.99
Really tremendous work from Lesley Gore – and just the sort of record to show that she's way more than just another girl singer from the 60s! The sound here is incredibly groovy right from the start – a mix not just of the romping arrangements of Claus Ogerman (in his best Soul Searching mode), and the production of Quincy Jones – but also of Gore's great vocals, which have this surprising tinge of sexuality – and a depth that comes from the unique style of folding over her lead in the studio, to create a wide-flanged vocal approach! There's a sense of guts and lust here that goes past the usual weepy girl pop modes – a style that undeniably had an influence on other singers like Dusty Springfield or Cilla Black. Titles include "Hey Now", "You've Come Back", "Say Goodbye", "Live & Learn", "Movin Away", "It's Just About This Time", and "I Wish I Were A Boy". CD features 13 more bonus tracks too – including "That's The Boy", "After He Takes Me Home", "Consolation Prize", "A Girl In Love", "What Am I Gonna Do With You", and "You Didn't Look Round". CD

New TwinkleGolden Lights ... CD CD format
RPM (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Groovy Brit girl pop from Twinkle – a singer who only shone briefly for a stretch in the 60s, but who made some really great music in the process! Twinkle's got a style that's maybe a bit more dreamy than some of her UK contemporaries – less the brash, proud pop of Cilla Black or Petula Clark than the blue-tinged styles of some of the American girl singers of the time – especially some of those who were best at weepy ballads and songs of loss. Yet Twinkle's also much more of an enigma – as she wrote most of the material herself, and sort of sprung on the scene out of nowhere – with enough personal presence that she's not just another girl singer run through a few changes in the studio. The CD features her big hits "Golden Lights" and "Terry" – plus 15 more that include "Ain't Nobody Home But Me", "Tommy", "The End Of The World", "What Am I Doing Here With You", and "Soldier's Dream".
