Description

Famously described by Rock writer Jay Warner as "The most successful unknown group of the 60s," The Blossoms evolved out of The Dreamers, via The Rollettes, and The Playgirls. Nonetheless just about everybody has actually heard them, because in addition to cutting their own records, they sang - either unbilled or under pseudonyms - on a number of big hit records of the era.

This compilation presents all their own 45s, starting in 1954 as The Dreamers, to 1962 when they had become The Blossoms, most of which are as rare as hens' teeth.

Also included are several of their well-known "guest appearances", backing artists like Richard Berry, Ed Townsend, Shelley Fabares, Duane Eddy and Bob B. Soxx & The Blue Jeans, and most famously The Crystals, for whom they 'deputised' on the Phil Spector-produced hits 'He's A Rebel' and 'He's Sure The Boy I Love'.

This is the first time that this body of work has been thus compiled, juxtaposing the girls' own rare/collectable 45s alongside their hits, recorded as session singers.
