Amazing compilation. Who do we become when we live our dreams? It’s all here - the high hairdos, the dreams and schemes, the tender camp, the wedding bell fantasias and chaste tragedies. Sister acts, studio receptionists, classmates, angelic voices of the 1960s; some legendary, many hidden in the basement of expired rainbows. Gathered on this deluxe double LP (or CD) are 28 (56 on the compact disc!) foiled escape attempts, now free to soar in girl group heaven. It features The Shades, The Belles, The Monzas, Vickie and the Van Dykes, Paulette and the Cupids, The Mellow Dawns and much more.
