Original Mono Single Sides from Three of the Most Iconic Girl Singers of the '60s

Most Songs Never Before on CD 

Virtually None of the Original Single Mixes Available Anywhere Since the Original 45-rpm Release 

Careful Remastering, Extensive Photos and Annotation


CONNIE STEVENS: The Complete Warner Bros. Singles (2CD Set)

Connie’s singles rank as the most indispensable items in her catalog, because she—as a late-‘50s/early-‘60s pop culture phenomenon starring in TV series like Hawaiian Eye and films like Palm Springs Weekend—was more a singles-oriented artist than an album-oriented one. This is the first-ever do- mestic compilation of her work, but it’s far more than that—a lot of these tracks have never been on CD, and they appear here in the original mono single mixes, just the way you originally heard them on the radio! Includes her duet with Edd “Kookie” Byrnes, Kookie, Kookie (Lend Me Your Comb); her rare radio promo single Why Can’t He Care for Me?, plus Apollo; Why Do I Cry for Joey; Sixteen Reasons; Little Sister; Too Young to Go Steady; A Little Kiss Is a Kiss Is a Kiss; Make Believe Lover; And This Is Mine; If You Don’t, Somebody Else Will; Greenwood Tree; Man Soll Such So Schwell Nicht Liberileba; La La Lu; Why’d You Want to Make Me Cry; Just One Kiss; Mr. Songwriter; I Couldn’t Say No; Hey, Good Lookin’; Nobody’s Lone- some for Me; Little Miss Understood; There Goes Your Guy; A Girl Never Knows; They’re Jealous of Me; Now That You’ve Gone; Lost in Wonderland; In the Deep of Night; Something Beautiful; Don’t You Want to Love Me; In My Room; All of My Life; That’s All I Want from You; How Bitter the Taste of Love; Most of All; It’ll Never Happen Again, and What Will I Tell Him.

JOANIE SOMMERS: The Complete Warner Bros. Singles (2CD Set) ORDER NOW

Joanie was the other big female crossover (records and TV) star on the Warner Bros. roster besides Connie Stevens, and just like was the case with Connie, very few of her single sides have come out on CD and the only previous compilation of her work came out only in Japan! Includes Kookie’s Love Song with Edd Byrnes and the Mary Kaye Trio; One Boy; I’ll Never Be Free; Be My Love; Why Don’t You Do Right; Ruby Duby Do; Bob White; I Don’t Want to Walk Without You; Seems Like Long, Long Ago; Piano Boy; Serenade of the Bells; Makin’ Whoopee; What’s Wrong with Me; Johnny Get Angry; Theme from “A Summer Place;” When the Boys Get Together; Passing Strangers; Goodbye Joey; Bobby’s Hobbies; Memories, Memories; Since Randy Moved Away; Little Bit of Everything; Henny Penny; June Is Busting Out All Over; Little Girl Bad; Wishing Well; Goodbye Summer; Big Man; I’d Be Soo Good for You; I’m Gonna Know He’s Mine; If You Love Him; I Think I’m Gonna Cry Now; Don’t Pity Me; My Block; The Great Divide, and Talk until Midnight.

SHELBY FLINT: The Complete Valiant Singles (CD)

Part folk, part pop, part jazz, Shelby Flint’s sound was unique among ‘60s girl singers (and girl singers of any era, for that matter). This marks the first-ever collection of her recordings, so it goes without saying that virtually none of the 24 mono single sides here—which include all of her singles for Valiant plus both sides of her lone single for Cadence--have ever been on CD! This stuff holds up remarkably well today, and it is presented here with notes featuring quotes from Shelby herself plus painstaking remastering. Includes her two hits, Angel on My Shoulder and Cast Your Fate to the Wind, plus I Will Love You (Cadence and Valiant versions); Oh I Miss Him So; Joy in the Morning; Lonely Cinderella; The Lily; Somebody; Every Night; A Broken Vow; Magic Wand; The Riddle Song; I Love a Wanderer; The Boy I Love; Ugly Duckling; Little Dancing Doll; It Really Doesn’t Matter; Wonderland; Pipes of Keith; I’ve Grown Accustomed to Your Face; Our Town; What’s New, Pussycat, and Bluebird.
