THE BOBBETTES, from Manhattan, were still schoolgirls aged between eleven and thirteen when they cut the self-penned, million-selling 'Mr. Lee' in 1957.
It became the first record by an all-girl vocal group to become a Top 10 Pop hit and also top the US R&B charts.
After struggling with follow-ups, they charted with the controversial 'I Shot Mr. Lee', three years later.
In its wake they also registered with 'Have Mercy Baby', 'Dance With Me Georgie', 'Mr. Johnny Q' and 'I Don't Like It Like That', while in 1962 they backed Johnny Thunder, uncredited, on the million-selling 'Loop De Loop'.
Between 1957 and 1962 they recorded prolifically, for eight different record labels; this compilation presents the Very Best of that recorded output, and includes all their hits.
Much of this material is unavailable elsewhere on CD.
