The Rebel Kind: Girls With Guitars 3 Various Artists - CD ACE

The Rebel Kind is the third in Ace's occasional series of guitar-centric 1960s girl pop compilations. In case they passed you by, the first two volumes, Girls With Guitars and Destroy That Boy , are still available.
Half the tracks here are by genuine guitar-wielding all-girl bands, including the Debutantes from Detroit, Los Angeles quartet the Girls, Goldie & the Gingerbreads from New York, Pinky Chicks from Japan, the Honeybeats from Italy and San Francisco s Ace Of Cups.
It might seem somewhat unlikely, but the Chantels are the featured musicians on the instrumental Peruvian Wedding Song . Thanks to acknowledged classics such as He s Gone and Maybe , it s beyond all doubt that the girls could really sing. Who knew they could also play? It s rather ironic that some of the most striking records to emerge from mid-60s Britain were the work of an American producer.
Beat combo Colette & the Bandits riff-driven A Ladies Man is up there with the 45s Shel Talmy produced at the time on the Kinks and the Who. Talmy also produced Goldie & the Gingerbreads Please, Please , another prime example of British beat, but one recorded by an American group. Brenda Lee s wild update of What d I Say and Jackie DeShannon s folk rock nugget Dream Boy were also recorded in the UK, in each case with the young Jimmy Page on guitar. He also plays on Dana Gillespie s cult favourite You Just Gotta Know My Mind . Some other noteworthy guys help out elsewhere: Kiwi duo the Chicks great version of Lee Hazlewood s The Rebel Kind features the Mike Perjanik Group with Doug Jerebine on guitar; the Turtles back-up teenage trio the Chymes on their jangly He s Not There Anymore ; chart band the Mob play on Mousie & the Traps How About You ; Gail Harris live recording of I Idolize You features the Wailers; and the Milkshakes provide the instrumentation on the Delmonas Peter Gunn Locomotion (the only non-60s track here, not that you d notice). Other highlights include Jean & the Statesides Putty In Your Hands , which knocks spots off the Shirelles original and the Yardbirds cover, Lydia Marcelle s new-to-CD rocker The Girl He Needs , and International Girl by the Beas, who sound like the Bangles 20 years ahead of their time.
