Girl Power: The First Ladies of Rock 'N' Roll Review

by Andrew Hamilton

Girl Power: The First Ladies of Rock 'N' Roll consists of 18 early feminine rock sounds that lit up the charts. Some sound dated, but it's nearly 40 years after the fact, so that's understandable. Tracks by the Shirelles, the Crystals, and the Chiffons remain charming and innocent. Ditto for the youthful enthusiasm of Lesley Gore's "It's My Party" and the Shangri-Las' tough girl tales.
