The Shangri-Las - 65!


  • £16.99

The second, and final, studio album by the short-lived but revolutionarily influential Shangri-Las, released by Red Bird in 1965, the same year as their iconic debut, Leader Of The Pack.

Formed in high-school by two sets of sisters, Mary and Betty Weiss and identical twins Margie and Mary Ann Ganser. Having grown up in a rough neighbourhood of Queens, they were less demure than other girl-groups of the time, developing a "tough girl" image that, along with their pop-perfection and their ability to switch from nonchalance to impassioned performance, was an often overlooked influence on many punk and new wave bands (The Ramones, Blondie, The Go-Go's, New York Dolls to name a few) a decade later.

Produced again by George "Shadow" Morton, 65! is every bit as essential as their debut, and contains some of the greatest pop songs of the 1960's.
