Reviews
"Loud, long-overdue applause for some of pop music's most talented singers... This oral history, based on more than 100 interviews, offers a well-selected, lively collection of interviews, and the authors allow the primary players to tell their own stories. Readers will form a fellowship with each of these young women as they rehash their compelling careers... A fast-paced, welcome celebration of groups that have been 'at risk of erasure from the canon of pop music history.'"--Kirkus
"A noble effort that will likely appeal to music scholars and the genre's fans."--Library Journal
"Flam and Liebowitz's lively, entertaining oral history makes good use of dozens of interviews, most conducted recently but some from decades ago, to argue that 'girl groups' from the fifties and after have played an overlooked but key role in the evolution of pop music... They neatly weave together different voices to provide perspective on compelling subjects in music history such as the dissolution of the Supremes and producer Phil Spector's influence. Anyone who ever swayed to 'Chapel of Love, ' grooved to 'Dancing in the Street, ' or mourned for the 'Leader of the Pack' will be enchanted by this volume's clear-eyed nostalgia."--Booklist
