Julie, Kathy, Petula, Alma & More – Early Brit Girls Vol.4

Welcome to the fourth instalment of EARLY BRIT GIRLS, the series in which we explore the rise of UK girlies from the mid 50s to the newly emergent Brit Girl sound of the early 60s, at the dawn of the Beat era. Like its three predecessors, Bouffants, Beehives & Backcombing – Early Brit Girls Vol.1 (RHGB 25), Helen, Dusty, Susan, Carol & More – Early Brit Girls Vol.2 (RHGB 31) and Lip Gloss, Eyeliner & Hairspray – Early Brit Girls Vol.3 (RHGB 33), this compilation presents a wide range of differing vocal styles, which of course makes for some really interesting listening. However, a warning; you won’t find many hits here, as the vast majority of these lasses’ chart records have been included either in those earlier volumes, or elsewhere on other RHGB compilations. Hence, this set includes plenty of collectors’ rarities and unexpected surprises.

Release date is October 2017 – click the sleeve above for your link
