Girl Zone!


Released: 6th November 2015

Ace Records have dreamed up this vinyl-only compilation of hand-picked female treasures to keep girl group buffs happy.

Highlights include first-time reissues of the Angels' great version of frat rock nugget 'Louie Louie' and Hollywood-based identical triplets the Drake Sisters' Gold Star-cut rendition of doo wop classic 'Smoke From Your Cigarette'. Housed in a heavy-duty sleeve sporting an ultra-rare photo of the Drake Sisters, the collection is pressed on 180g lava-coloured vinyl and comes with printed inner bag featuring a 2500-word track commentary and some terrific photos. In other words, it's not just great to listen to but a good read and fab to look at too.
