Growin' Up Too Fast: The Girl Group Anthology

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Richie Unterberger
A two-CD, 50-song collection of girl group hits and misses originally released on the MGM, Smash, Philips, Fontana, 20th Century Fox, and Mercury labels in the early and mid-'60s. It's nice to have some of these rarities easily available in state-of-the-art fidelity, but it's not one of the best girl group compilations around, in terms of either thematic coherence or consistent quality. The hits by the Shangri-Las, Lesley Gore, Dusty Springfield, the Angels, and the Royalettes are good to great, but are better heard in the context of their own compilations. Much of the rest -- by obscure singers like Ginny Arnell, the Pixies Three, and Beverly Washburn -- is pleasant...

Much of the rest -- by obscure singers like Ginny Arnell, the Pixies Three, and Beverly Washburn -- is pleasant but rather forgettable. There are some really neat one-shots and lost classics here, though, like Diane Renay's Top Ten hit, "Navy Blue," and her flop follow-up, "Watch Out, Sally!," is one of the toughest white girl group records ever. Also cool are the Secrets' "The Boy Next Door" an Angels sound-alike and the two songs by Sadina, which are among the best unknown Wall-of-Sound-type productions ever.
