Cover of: Various - Marylebone Beat Gilrs
Marylebone Beat Gilrs
Ace | LP | 28 €

This follow/up to our recent "Love Hit Me! Decca Beat Girls" and "Scratch My Back! Pye Beat Girls" releases comprises superior 60s she/pop from the EMI group of record labels - Parlophone, Columbia and HMV - headquartered in Marylebone in the heart of London's West End.The collection is available in 12/track LP and 24/track CD formats. The LP edition is pressed on 180g orange vinyl in a heavy duty sleeve with comprehensive notes and rare photos on the inner bag. The CD version comes with a bumper booklet featuring expanded notes and extra photos. Most of the female acts signed by EMI were teenagers completely tuned in to the current pop trends. Scottish duo the McKinleys, R^B club habituée Julie Driscoll *cover star of the vinyl version(, talent show winner Billie Davis *the CD cover girl( and Midlands pub singer Beverley Jones took original material from London's Tin Pan Alley and American covers and gave them an abrasive, vigorous kick that made for fabulous 45s. They may not have had quite the polish of their US counterparts, but the rough'n'ready sound of the Marylebone Beat Girl was precisely her appeal. Among the many highlights are ancing Yet', a Dobie Gray/style discotheque number by Liza ^ the Jet Set< ike The Big Man Said' by Toni Daly, a cover of Italian star Caterina Caselli's 'uomo D'oro' with edgy English lyrics by Peter Callander< and Billie Davis' groovy gender/switched update of Chuck Willis' R^B nugget hatcha' Gonna Do'. Compilation and notes by Ace Records' in/house girl/pop buffs Mick Patrick and Sheila Burgel.track listingSIDE ONE1.DANCING YET / Liza And The Jet Set2.WHATCHA- GONNA DO / Billie Davis And The Leroys3.SWEET AND TENDER ROMANCE / The McKinleys4.DON-T DO IT NO MORE / Julie Driscoll5.LOVE IS A WORD / Alma Cogan6.STOP AND YOU WILL BECOME AWARE / Helen ShapiroSIDE TWO1.MUSIC TALK / Beryl Marsden2.LIKE THE BIG MAN SAID / Toni Daly3.I WANT THAT BOY / The Chantelles4.THE BOY I USED TO KNOW / Andee Silver5.MAMA DIDN-T LIE / Jean And The Statesides6.HE DOESN-T WANT YOU / The Three Bells
