A pair of incredible mid 60s girl group soul sets from The Royalettes – It's Gonna Take A Mira
cle and Elegant Sound Of The Royalettes, plus a trip of great bonus tracks – their complete sessions for MGM in a single set! It's Gonna Take A Mira
cle Some is some of the best uptown girl group soul you'll ever find, and a nice bit of Big City production by Teddy Randazzo. The album includes their classic "It's Gonna Take A Mira
cle", plus lots of other nice ones with the same sort of mellow groove. Titles include "Don't You Cry", "Poor Boy", "You Bring Me Down", "Never Again", "Out Of Sight, Out Of Mind", and "I Want To Meet Him". Elegant Sound Of The Royalettes is another killer batch of track – featuring more original compositions, arrangements, and production work by the great Teddy Randazzo. Teddy did some of his best work with The Royalettes – and forged a style that was sophisticated and classy, yet in different ways than some of the blander attempts by labels like Motown. The record's got a huge amount of tracks for a major label release from the time, and titles include "Baby Are You Putting Me On", "It's Better Not To Know", "Can't Stop Running Away", "Rest Of My Life", "Forever More", "Think Before You Act", and "I Don't Want To Be The One". The set also features 3 bonus tracks originally only issued as singles – "When Summer's Gone", "(He Is) My Man" and "Take My Love (And Hide It From My Heart)".
