• Various Artists - The Shirelles & the Evolution of the Girl Group Sound

This compilation traces the girl group sound back to its R&B roots in 1952 and journeys through the '50s with acts like The Chordettes, The Poni Tails, The Chantels and The Bobbettes.

Includes such classic hits as 'Eddie My Love', 'Born to Be with You', 'Maybe', 'Born Too Late' and the first ever single by The Supremes who in 1960 were recording as The Primettes.

The girl group sound is synonymous with the 1960s and it was The Shirelles who led the breakthrough to the international charts with their classic, 'Will You Love Me Tomorrow' taken from their original 1960 LP 'Tonight's the Night' which is featured here in its entirety.
