Reprise Records let this fantastic album by three Southern California teenagers -- 16-year-old Ilene Anderson, 14-year-old Mary Lou Anderson, and 13-year-old Renee "Ren" Woods -- gather dust in warehouses. The teens give every selection a rich gospel flavor, excelling on a medley comprised of "I Found a Love," "Yes I'm Ready," "You're Good for Me," and "Wichita Lineman." They show reverence but no fear in tackling "My Song," popularized by Aretha Franklin, the Bee Gees' "To Love Somebody," and Paul McCartney's "Maybe I'm Amazed." This is an item that Reprise should reissue on CD pronto; as it is, if you can't find a copy at a garage sale or resale store, you're out of luck. Dynamo lead singer Ren Woods later recorded solo on many labels including Elektra and CBS/ARC, and she has enjoyed a long acting career in television and movies.
