Swing the Most / Hear & Now [Import]
(United Kingdom - Import)
2009 installment in this series that restores the original Scepter and Pricewise vinyl albums by The Shirelles, in the same running order as issued plus bonus non-album flipsides. This release brings together two highly acclaimed, and very rare, albums that came out on Scepter's budget label, Pricewise, during a time that the group was in litigation with the company and refused to record any new songs. The Shirelles were the door openers for the girl group sound of the early '60s. Their strongest sides stand alongside the best of anything that splendid genre has to offer. Exquisitely remastered - and in stereo where stereo tapes still exist - this CD provides the definitive Shirelles collection for anyone who wants something more than the umpteenth rehash of their Greatest Hits. 23 tracks. Ace.
