Where the Girls Are, Vol. 2

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Richie Unterberger
A 30-song collection of early and mid-'60s girl group rarities, some previously unreleased, from the vaults of the New York-based Scepter and Musicor labels. This is ephemera that can only be recommended to hard-bitten girl group fans, but if you're in that category there are probably enough goodies here to merit a spin. Chief among these is Diane & Annita's tentative 1965 version of "A Groovy Kind of Love" previously only on a French EP, which according to the liners is the original, even predating the one by Patti LaBelle & the Blue Belles which is usually presumed to be the original that was covered by the Mindbenders for a huge hit.

There's a rare 1962 cut by Tammy Montgomery, who became Tammi Terrell at Motown, and unreleased cuts by Maxine Brown, Goldie & the Gingerbreads, and Marie Knight. The songs by the Shirelles and the Shangri-Las, though not well known, have been easy to find on other compilations. As for the contributions by no names, these are often pleasant and well-produced but largely inconsequential; one bright spot is Ernestine Eady's perky "The Change," which has an uptown bounce typical of many quality New York soul-pop productions of the period.
